Chris in Portland Chords Req: Ragged But Right (32) RE: Chords Req: Ragged But Right 06 Aug 11

We go to song circles where there are folks who might not appreciate the older words to this wonderful song, so I rewrote it a smidge.
Here' the second verse I do -

I just come here to tell you people I'm ragged but right
A rambler and a rounder, I stay out every night
I got a big Stetson hat that sits on top of my head
Pretty little wife that keeps me clean and well-fed
I've got an old lazy hound dog that brings me my shoes
He sleeps at my feet and we watch the same news   (spoken: "Fox")
Well he's a ramblin' rounder. He stays out every night               
I tell you people we're ragged but right.

I also always mention that one George Jones bio is aptly titled "Ragged, but Right."

Chris in Sunny Portland
