I'm Barely Hanging On To Me
Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by Joe Poovey
G 
It's just my luck that I'll have to exist
 
In a  
C 
world where I just survive
G 
I'm still breathing so I guess
 
That  
D7 
means I'm still alive
G 
But no one could tell it by the  
C 
image that they see
 
Since I let go of  
G 
you I'm barel
D7 
y hanging on t
G 
 
me
 
I  
A7 
quit looking into mirrors I such a  
D7 
sorry 
 
sight
 
How  
A7 
did I get so distorted so  
D7 
young in life
G 
The worst of you has finally got the  
C 
best of me
 
Since I let go of  
G 
you I'm barel
D7 
y hanging on t
G 
 
me
 
The mind that used to guide me right has  
C 
now turned weak and numb
G 
I'll bet my heart is wondering where all thi
D7 
s hurt is coming from
G 
The presents of your absence is  
C 
getting through to me
 
Since I let go of  
G 
you I'm barel
D7 
y hanging on t
G 
 
me
Repeat #2

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).
