Hangin' Your Life on the Wall


Capo 1st fret C F I used to be Juanita's old boyfriend; C F We sure gave 'em some stories to tell. C G/B Am Am7/G Now I can't even find her picture - F G C Looks I'm finally through foolin' myself.

I used to be an ex-bullrider,
Livin' on the edge of life itself.
Now I can't even find my buckle -
Looks like I'm finally through foolin' myself.


F C G C So hang on just as long as you can, F G C Get up whenever you fall. F C G C Shake it off, boys, and go around again, F G C Don't be hangin' your life on the wall.

I used to be forever chasin' firetrucks;
I sure could raise me some hell.
I don't know why I like to do that kinda stuff -
I guess I wasn't through foolin' myself.

I used to have a smokin' little fastball,
Man, I sure could show 'em some stuff.
Now I can't even make it on the church team anymore -
I guess I'm finally through foolin' myself.

So hang on just as long as you can,
Get up whenever you fall.
Shake it off, boys, and go around again,
Don't be hangin' your life on the wall.

Hang on just as long as you can,
Get up whenever you fall.
Shake it off, boys, and go around again,
Don't be hangin' your life on the wall.

I used to be an ex-bullrider...
