Gene sent me this link - he said it was my chance to see Joe Offer on U-tube.
-Joe, the essence of humility-

Here are the lyrics:

It's Hard to Be Humble
recorded by Mac Davis
tabbed by Greg Vaughn


A D                                                       A7
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 lookin' each day

                           D7                  G
To know me is to love me I must be a hell of a man

                                       A7                   D
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble but I'm doing the best that I can

D       G      D                                           A7
I used 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

                                           D7                         G
Well, I prob'ly could find me another but I guess they're all in awe of me

                      D                A7                   D
Who cares I never get lonesome 'cause I treasure my own company

I guess you could say I'm a loner a cowboy outlaw tough and proud
Oh I could have lots of friends if I wanna but then I wouldn't stand
         out in a 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 that I fill out my skin-tight
