And we're both feeling kinda wild tonight.

You're the only cowboy in this place.

And if you're up for a rodeo.

I'll put a big Texas smile on your face.Ē

Chorus 1
                     Bb
I ain't as good as I once was
C                 F
I got a few years on me now
                Bb              C
But there was a time back in my prime
                    F
When I could really lay it down
                     Bb
And if you need some love tonight
C                 F    C/E     Dm
Then I might have just enough
                     Gm
I ain't as good as I once was
           C              Bb        Am  Gm  F
But I'm as good once as I ever was

                         Bb
I still hang out with my best friend Dave
C                                 F
Iíve known him since we were kids at school
                        Bb
Last night he had a few shots
               C                    F
Got in a tight spot hustlin' a game of pool
                 Bb
With a couple of redneck boys
C                  F
One great big, bad biker man
                   G
I heard David yell across the room
                        C7
"Hey buddy, how 'bout a helping hand."
         C
I said, "Dave,"

Chorus 2

C          F
My how the years have flown
                Bb              C
But there was a time back in my prime
                    F
When I could really hold my own
                 Bb
But if you wanna fight tonight
C                           F        C/E    Dm
Guess those boys don't look all that tough
                     Gm
I ain't as good as I once was

But I'm as good once as I ever was

Bridge
             Eb              Bb/D
I used to be hell on wheels
                F
Back when I was younger man
                   G7
Now my body says, "You can't do this, boy."
                    C7          C
But my pride says, "Oh, yes you can.Ē

Chorus 3
                     Bb
I ain't as good as I once was
C               F
Thatís just the cold, hard truth
                    Bb                  C
I still throw a few back, talk a little smack
                 F
When I'm feeliní bullet proof
                    Bb
So don't double dog dare me now
C                  F         C/E    Dm 
'Cause I'd have to call your bluff
                     Gm
I ain't as good as I once was
                C         Bb        Am  Gm  F
But I'm as good once as I ever was
                     Bb
May not be good as I once was
           C              Bb 
But I'm as good once as I ever was

Am  Gm  F  Bb  C  F  Fsus  F


This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since
U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings.
