Written and Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
[G]Everybody says I’m a fool t[A7]o love you
But [C]I’d rather be th[D7]e judge of tha[G]t myself
You may have a heart that’s filled wit[A7]h hate instead of love
But [C]I’d rather b[D7]e your fool than anyone I kno[G]w of
Each [D7]time friends say I must be blind
[G]I wish they’d stop and think
You [A7]can set the wine on the table
But the [D7]man don’t have to drink
[G]Yes I’m satisfied and I’ve got my pride
And I [A7]still possess your love
Yes [C]I’d rather b[D7]e your fool than anyone I kno[G]w of

Who is Johnny Paycheck?
– Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song “Take This Job and Shove It”. He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
