(t: Ballad of a Southern Man)
(st: Whiskey Myers)


(G)My first (D)rifle was a (C).24(G)3
That (Em7)Papa gave to (D)Daddy and (C)Daddy gave to (G)me
They (G)taught me how to (D)shoot with a (C)steady (Em)hand
I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand

Now (G)I grew (D)up on a (C)prison (G)farm
(Em7)Sneaking pulls of (D)shine from a (C)mason (G)jar
(G)Used to go (D)fishing out on (C)Pickle Creek (Em)Dam
I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand

(C)Grandmas in the (G)kitchen
And (C)Papas (G)done passed (D)on
We (C)sit out on the (G)front porch
Just a (Em7)pickin' (D)on a (C)song
There's (C)blood on the (G)table
'Cause we (C)work for (G)what we (D)have
I was (Em7)raised (D)in this (C)land
I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand

(G)I still (D)fly that (C)southern (G)flag
(Em7)Whistling (D)Dixie loud (C)enough to (G)brag
and I (G)know all the (D)words to (C)Simple (Em)Man
But I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand

I (G)pledge my (D)allegiance the (C)original (G)way
(Em7)Saying Merry (D)Christmas not (C)happy holi(G)days
I can't (G)change my (D)ways, I (C)know who I (Em)am
But I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand

(C)Grandmas in the (G)kitchen
And (C)Papas (G)done passed (D)on
We (C)sit out on the (G)front porch
Just a (Em7)pickin' (D)on a (C)song
There's (C)blood on the (G)table
'Cause we (C)work for (G)what we (D)have
I was (Em7)raised (D)in this (C)land
I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand


(Bb)So grind us up in a (F)big machine
(C)Feed us all on the (G)same beliefs
A (Bb)holy dollar and a (F)credit (C)card
But we (Bb)got a way of (F)doing things
And (C)no bankers gonna (G)steal from me
(D)They wanna tear it all apart.

(C)Grandmas in the (G)kitchen
And (C)Papas (G)done passed (D)on
We (C)sit out on the (G)front porch
Just a (Em7)pickin' (D)on a (C)song
There's a (C)Bible on the (G)table
'Cause He (C)bled for (G)what we (D)have
And that's the (Em7)ballad of (D)southern (C)man
I (Em7)guess that's (D)something you (C)don't under(G)stand

(G)My first (D)rifle was a (C).24(G)3
That (Em7)Papa gave to (D)Daddy and (C)Daddy gave to (G)me
