      G                                       Am
Well, Grandaddy was a hillbilly scholar, blue collar of a man
   C
He came from the school where you didn't need nothin'
       G
If you couldn't make it with your own two hands.
       G                               Am
He was backwoods, backwards, used words like:
                                 C
"No Sir," "Yes, Ma'am," "By God," "Be Darned,"
                           G
"Hell yea, I'm American!"
    D#dim7           G
And all the years he walked this earth,
        D#dim7         G
I swear all he did was work.
              Am                 Bm
He said: "The devil dreams on an idle horse,
       C
So you listen to me Squirt."

Chorus 1:
G                       Am
"Don't get to high on a bottle,
C                      G
And get right with the Man.
           G
Fight your fights, find a grace,
            Am
And all the things that you can change.
C                        G
And help somebody if you can."

    G
Now Granny said: "Sonny, stick to your guns,
       Am
If you believe in something no matter what,
            C
'Cause it's better to be hated for who you are
        G
Than be loved for who you're not.
        G
She was five feet of concrete,
         Am
New York born and raised on a slick city street.
           C
She'd cold-stare ya down, stand her ground,
      G
Still kickin' and screamin' at 93.
    D#dim7          G                       D#dim7         G
I remember just how frail she looked in that hospital bed.
Am                  Bm               C
Takin' her last few breaths of life, smilin' as she said:

Chorus 2 (Same chords as first chorus)
"Don't get to high on a bottle,
Just a little sip ev'ry now and then.
Fight your fights, find a grace,
And all the things that you can change,
And help somebody if you can,
And get right with the Man."

Solo--G, Am, C progression

Bridge:
Am             C               G
"I never let a cowboy make the coffee."
     C                                         G
Yea, that's what Granny always said to my Granddad
             Am             C                    G
And he'd say: "Never tell a joke that ain't that funny more than once,
           Am             Bm                   C
And if you wanna hear God laugh, tell him your plans."

Chorus 3: (Same chords as first two choruses)
"Don't get too high on a bottle,
Get right with the Man, son.
Fight your fights, find a grace,
And all the things that you can change,
And help somebody if you can,
And get right with the Man.

Outro--G, Am, C
