Everybody Needs A Hero

Song Author Troy Seals , Troy Seals og Max D. Barnes Performer: Gene Watson Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]He drove a '47 Buick Special
Them [F]dusty roads were hell on the [C]shine
And [G7]about once a week he'd be [F]down by the creek
And [C]I'd help him [G7]wash it some[C]time


He had a pinstriped suit and a gold watch
And a [F]gold chain that hung from his [C]chest
He [G7]drank a little and he [F]gambled a lot
[C]He was a [G7]wild one I [C]guess

Oh but [F]everybody needs a [C]hero
[G7]Savannah Slim was [C]mine
When [F]you're ten years old
[C]Down in south [D7]Georgia
[G7]Heroes are hard to [C]find


Lord how he loved country music
He [F]played an old Peavey [C]guitar
At a [G7]roadhouse one night he was [F]called on to fight
[C]Somebody [G7]pushed him to [C]far  


So he served a little time in prison
But he [F]served four long years in the [C]war  
It was in the [G7]Pacific where he [F]got his tattoo
[C]Two hearts in [G7]blue on his [C]arm  

Oh but [F]everybody needs a [C]hero
[G7]Savannah Slim was [C]mine
When [F]you're ten years old
[C]Down in south [D7]Georgia
[G7]Heroes are hard to [C]find


My mama says I turned out just like him
She [F]worries and prays that I'll [C]change
I didn't [G7]know till a [F]few days ago
Why he [C]sent me his [G7]gold watch and [C]chain

Oh but [F]everybody needs a [C]hero
[G7]Savannah Slim was [C]mine
When [F]you're ten years old
[C]Down in south [D7]Georgia
[G7]Heroes are hard to [C]find

[F]When you're ten years old
[C]Down in south [D7]Georgia
[G7]Heroes are hard to [C]find
[G7]Savannah Slim was [C]mine


He drove a '47 Buick Special
Them dusty roads were hell on the shine
And about once a week he'd be down by the creek
And I'd help him wash it sometime

He had a pinstriped suit and a gold watch
And a gold chain that hung from his chest
He drank a little and he gambled a lot
He was a wild one I guess

Oh but everybody needs a hero
Savannah Slim was mine
When you're ten years old
Down in south Georgia
Heroes are hard to find

Lord how he loved country music
He played an old Peavey guitar
At a roadhouse one night he was called on to fight
Somebody pushed him to far

So he served a little time in prison
But he served four long years in the war
It was in the Pacific where he got his tattoo
Two hearts in blue on his arm

Oh but everybody needs a hero
Savannah Slim was mine
When you're ten years old
Down in south Georgia
Heroes are hard to find

My mama says I turned out just like him
She worries and prays that I'll change
I didn't know till a few days ago
Why he sent me his gold watch and chain

Oh but everybody needs a hero
Savannah Slim was mine
When you're ten years old
Down in south Georgia
Heroes are hard to find

When you're ten years old
Down in south Georgia
Heroes are hard to find
Savannah Slim was mine
