I blew i
E 
n from Texas
 
And the rest don’t give  
A 
damn

A

My game is t
A 
he winner take all
 
I live on  
E

edges
 
So i’m subject to  
A 
fall
 
 
B 
 
I ain’t never been  
A 
loser
 
 
A 
 
I’m like runnin’ in  
A 
ringer
 
You don’t mess around with me
E 
 
I’ve got
E 
money in my pocket
 
If i look like  
A 
poor 
 
boy
 
I got  
A 
woman on my right arm
 
I know it’
A 
s not the right thing to do
 
But i could
E 
never 
 
change
 
 
B 
 
So if you are  
A 
lady
 
 
A 
 
I’m  
A 
living lovin’ legend
 
You don’t mess around with me
E 
 
She’s got
E 
honey drippin’ off her lips
 
A 
walkin’ 
 
aphrodisiac
 
Prancin’ like  
A 
thoroughbred
 
It don’t ma

There’s just one f

In my old common labor shoes

There’s no end to what i’d do

Just because you asked me
A

Let the world call me  
A 
fool
 
Buf if things are right with me and you

That’s all that matters and i’ll do
E 
 
Anything you ask me to
A 
 
Knowing how much i love you
D 
 
And after all that i’ve been through
A 
 
I’d turn and walk away from you
E 
 
Just because you asked me to

Working Without A Net

Well the road can be  
A 
circus,a death defying act
 
But the clowns don’t come around no more since the

monkeys off my back
 
I stand her
A 
e on the stage,as the house lights fade to black
 
 
E

Your love helps me forget,i’m working without  
A 
net
 
Up on the
A 
high

A 
gin to call
 
Some want
D 
you to fly,some want
E 
to see you fall
 
Now and then
A 
i stumble,but i ain’t fallen yet
 
 
E 
 
A 
 
Your love helps me forget,i’m working without  
A 
net
 
I used to
A 
depend on some things i did not need
 
I leaned on some crutches that kept m
E 
e off my feet
 
 
E 
 
A 
 
Your love helps me forget,i’m working without
