Good Ol' Boys

("The Dukes Of Hazzard" Theme)

Words & Music:

Waylon Jennings.


This is transcribed in the August 2005 issue of Guitar One.


B7    E


                  E                      A

Just two good ol' boys, never meaning no harm.

       E                        B7

Beats all you ever saw, been in trouble with the law


Since the day they were born.


Straight in the curves, flat on the hills.

Someday the mountain might get' em,

But the law never will.


CHORUS:  [2x]


Making their way, The only way they know how.


That's just a little bit more than the law will allow.






I'm a good ol' boy; you know my mama loves me.

But she don't understand, they keep a-showin' my hands

And not my face on T.V.


OUTRO: [solo over verse chords and out]
