Old And Ugly (Roy Payne & Derek Pilgrim)
Click Here for tabs.

Well, the DJs used to play my music back in history,
Long before that 'Achy Breaky Heart' came on the scene;
Now they sit alone up on some dusty shelf,
And the only way I get 'em played is if I play them myself.

Now I'll admit that I am not the man I used to be,
My hair was long and curly, now it's gone and gray;
And there's no doubt a lot of me just up and moved along,
But I can still jump as I just don't stay up that long.

Hey, I'm in it for the music not the fame,
Me, I had my share of that back in my younger days;
You know I'm not complaining even if I should,
I might be old and ugly, but I'm good.

Hey, I'm in it for the music not the fame,
Me, I had my share of that back in my wilder days;
You know I'm not complaining even if I should,
I might be old and ugly, but I'm good.

She was soft and she was gentle, she knew all my songs,
She asked me for my autograph, then she tagged along;
And the last words that she whispered
when she left my motel room,
Was, you might be old and ugly, Ugly, but your good.

Yea, I'm in it for the music not the fame,
Me, I had my share of that back in my crazy days;
You know I'm not complaining even if I should,
I might be old and ugly, but I'm good,
Yea, I might be old and ugly, but I'm good.
