Intro: vamp E - A [get into the swing of the thing - Express YourSelf!]

Verse 1

E A E A
I got me a woman, she's a pretty good woman at that.

E A E
We live with a monkey and a Chinese acrobat.

A A7 E A
She calls me "Tex," makes me wear a cowboy hat.

E A E
But I don't care, she's a pretty good woman at that.

Verse 2

Nothing in the world make me treat that woman mean.
She shaves my beard and keeps my tractor clean.
She burns my bread, makes me eat turnip greens.
But I don't care, she's the best little woman I've seen.

Chorus:

A E
Some folks, they move out to California.

A E
Some folks, they stay in Tennessee.

A[7th]
I don't care where I'm heading.

E B E
Just as long as that woman stands by me.

Instrumental break
Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

Nothing that I'd rather do than spend my nights at home,
Talking with my baby and playing on the slide trombone.
She talks in tongues, Ah! She really turns me on!
With a woman like that a man never wants to roam.

Chorus.

repeat last line and fade [into obscurity].

Notes:

Try using only barre chords.
Add a 7th wherever it sounds/feels good.
Vamp E - A chords between verses and chorus.
Dampen your guitar with the heel of your hand.
Be free! Go with the feeling of the music! Make it your own.
