[Verse 1]
C                            G
You want to grow up to paint houses like me,
      D                      C      G
with a trailer in my yard till you're 23
        C                      G
And you want to feel old after 42 years,
    D                      C            G
keep dropping the hammer and grinding the gears

[Verse 2]
        D                  C      G
Well, I used to go out in a Mustang
  D              C    G
a 302 Mach One in green
      D                    C          G
Till' Me and your mama made you in the back
      D                    C    G
and I sold it to buy her a ring

[Verse 3]
      C                          G
And I learned not to say much of nothing
      C                  G
so I figured you already know
    C                    Em
but in case you don’t or maybe forgot
    D                        C
I’ll lay it out real nice and slow

      C                        G
Don’t call what your wearing an outfit.
      C                    G
Don’t ever say your car is broke
          C                      Em
And don’t worry about losing your accent
        D                        C
cause a Southern Man tells better jokes
    C                        G
Have fun and stay clear of the needle
    C                        G
Call home on your sister’s birthday
    C                              Em
Don’t tell them you’re bigger than Jesus
              Am  G  Em
don’t give it away
              Am  G  Em
don’t give it away

[Verse 4]
    D                      C      G
Five years in a St. Florian foundry,
    D                  C    G
they call it Industrial Park.
        D                          C        G
I worked hospital maintenance and Tech School
        D                  C      G
just to memorize Frigidaire parts.

[Verse 5]
    C                    G
But I got to missing your Mama
    C                    G
and I got to missing you too.
    C                        Em
So I went back to painting for my old man
      D                            C
and I guess that’s what I’ll always do

[Verse 6]
  C                        G
So don’t let'em take who you are boy
    C                      G
and don’t try to be who you ain’t.
    C                          Em
And don’t let me catch you in Kendale
      D                      C
with a bucket of wealthy-man’s paint.

      C                        G
Don’t call what your wearing an outfit.
      C                    G
Don’t ever say your car is broke.
      C                        Em
Don’t sing with a fake British accent.
              D                        C
Boy and don’t act like your family’s a joke.
    C                          G
Have fun, and stay clear of the needle
    C                    G
call home on your sister’s birthday.
      C                            Em
Don’t tell them you’re bigger than Jesus
                Am G Em
Don’t give it away.
                Am G Em
Don’t give it away.
