It's Hard to Be Humble Lyrics
Speaking:

Back a few months ago I was headlinin' at a great big night club, and they put me up a couple of days early. I came in a
couple a'days early and they put me up in what they call the Star Suite. Now here I am headlinin' in one of the biggest night
clubs in the country and I wake up at 8 o'clock in morning in this star suite all by myself. (Awe) Yeah, that's what I said,
awe. But I did what I've always done to cheer myself up. I picked up my guitar and sat down and I wrote me a little song.
Now this is how it feels to be alone at the top of the hill and trying to figure out why.

Singing:

Chorus
~~~
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble,
When you're perfect in every way,
I can't wait to look in the mirror,
'cause I get better looking each day.

To know me is to love me,
I must be a hell of a man,
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble,
But I'm doin' the best that I can.
~~~

I use to have a girlfriend,
But I guess she just couldn't compete,
With all of these love-starved women,
Who keep clamoring at my feet.

Well I probably could find me another,
But I guess their all in awe of me,
Who cares I'll never get lonesome,
'cause I treasure my own company.

Chorus

I guess you could say I'm a loner,
A cowboy outlaw tough and proud,
Well I could have lots of friends if I wanted,
But then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd.

Some folks say that I'm egotistical,
Hell I don't even know what that means,
I guess it has something to do with,
The way I fill out my skin tight blue jeans.

Chorus

We're doing the best that we can.
