Title:  Old Man
Artist:  Alabama
Album:  Just Us
Transcribed by:  Tim Rehagen
E-mail address:  Str8cntry8@aol.com

Key:  F# Major

INTRO:   F#     D#m    F#    D#m

VERSE:
             F#
I had my rent-a-car flyin' down a two-lane road

E               B           F#
Late for my plane again

F#
Had to stop for some gas at this country store

E                  B                F#
That's when I saw the old man

           D#m                             B           C#
He was kicked back workin' on a big R C

D#m                                  B
Watchin' Gomer Pyle on his little TV

F#              C#              B
Took him awhile to even notice me

G#m                                G#m7/C#    C#
Sittin' there I thought to myself

 
CHORUS:

         F#
Old man (Old Man)

                  D#m
You got one up on me

B                            C#
I'm still lookin' for my shady tree

               D#m                              G#
With your two gas pumps and your color TV

        B                           G#
Your satisfied as you can be

      G#m                
Old Man (Old Man)

  C#                                   F#   D#m   F#m   D#m
I guess you got one up on me

VERSE:
            F#
Well he finally strolled over with a big 'ol smile

E                  B      F#
Said "How ya doin, son?"

F#
I said "Give me five dollars worth as fast as you can.....

             E           B     F#      
...'cause I'm really in a run."

     D#m                                   B                   C#
He said "What's your hurry on a day like this?....

         D#m                           B
If you move too fast, there's a lot you'll miss.....

F#               C#               B
If you wanna see what the good life is.....

       G#m                    G#m7/C#    C#
Just get out and visit awhile."

REPEAT CHORUS


BRIDGE:
D#m
Don't remember just what it was

      B                                C#
The old man said to me

D#m           
...But I forgot about catchin' the plane

      G#m                    F#/A#    B    C#
And opened up the big R.         C.

REPEAT CHORUS
   C#           G#m    
...Old Man

C#                                 F#    D#m
..You got one up on me               Old Man      

REPEAT SAME CHORDS AND FADE(F#, D#m)

Enjoy!
