It’s hard to be humble    (video)    (midi)

 

         D                                                                                         A

Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way,

                                                                                A7                 D

I can't wait to look in the mirror 'cause I get better lookin' each day.

         D                                   D7                          G

To know me is to love me, I must be a hell of a man,

                                        D                       A           A7            D

oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, but I'm doin' the best that I can.

1.          I used to have a girlfriend,

                                                          A

    but I guess she just couldn't compete

 

    with all these love starved women

                                       A7       D

    who keep clamouring at my feet.

                  D

    Well, I probably could find me another

                                           D7        G

    but I guess they're all in awe of me,

                                         D

    who cares, I never get lonesome,

                    A                                   D

    'cause I treasure my own company.

 

 A      D                                                                                         A

Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way,

                                                                                A7                 D

I can't wait to look in the mirror 'cause I get better lookin' each day.

         D                                   D7                          G

To know me is to love me, I must be a hell of a man,

                                        D                           A           A7                D

oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, but we’re doin' the best that we can.

 

        D

2. I guess you could say I am a loner,

                                                    A

    a cowboy, I walk tough and proud,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    well, I could have lots of friends if I wanted,

                                             A7          D

    but then I wouldn't stand out in a crowd,

                D

    Some folks say that I'm egotistical,

               D7                                         G

    hell, I don't even know what that means,

                                                 D

    I guess it has something to do with the way

              A                                      D

    that I fill out my skin tight blue jeans.

 

 A      D                                                                                         A

Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way,

                                                                                A7                 D

I can't wait to look in the mirror 'cause I get better lookin' each day.

         D                                   D7                          G

To know me is to love me, I must be a hell of a man,

                                        D                           A           A7                D

oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble, but we’re doin' the best that we can.

 

               A              A7                D

+ We’re doing’ the best that we can.
