Big Shot Rich Man
By Jason Boland & The Stragglers
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Folks like me, theyíre always moving
            B7                 E
It seems to be the only way to stay
There ainít nothin too strange or too confusing
               B7                   E  
Itís better to change a little everyday 
Some folks travel, some folks settle
           B7                 E
Some folks own and some folks rent
Some folks marry, some just stay single
          B7                      E
Everybody wonders where the money went

I donít wanna to live like a big shot rich man
                 B7                  E
I donít wanna to live like a branded slave
I just want to give some land to my children
        B7                   E
So they wonít have to buy my grave

I want to go back to California
I want to be in that state once more
When the floods come in and the quakes are over
I hope I'm not sittiní on the ocean floor
Gonna be with my friends back in Oklahoma
Gonna settle down on a piece of ground
Iíll have 100 wives and a mess of puppies
I could live my life, like a natural hound


Gonna roll me a reefer, seven foot long
Smoke that reefer, I got turned on
I hocked a tape deck made in Hong Kong
I bought some more reefer, now my moneyís gone
