C        
Billy never made the football team, 
                        G7
'Cause Billy's size was small.

But Billy's brother was a mighty lad,
                                C
And played a lot of high school ball.

And Billy's daddy never favoured him,
   C7                    F
He catered to the bigger guys,
                   C
But later on, in a bigger way,
G7                 C
Billy overcame his size.


    C
The years flew by, and Billy grew,
                      G7
But he never got very big.

We called him shorty but he never got mad,
                         C
He was always good for a dig.

And we payed no mind when he fell in line,
    C7                  F                    
And left with the other guys.
                                C
And the sergeant laughed at his skinny frame,
    G7                 C
But Billy overcame his size.


F             
Billy overcame his size,
      C                  Am
Yeah, Billy overcame his size.
C              G7
Later on, in a bigger way,
                   C
Billy overcame his size.


C
Billy's brother made a football star,
                       G7
And the biggest man in town.

And the scholarship that kept him home
                          C
Never seemed to bring him down.

But on the other hand his brother Bill,
    C7                   F
Put pride in his Daddy's eyes.
                           C
When he died to save those other men,
G7                 C
Billy overcame his size.


F
Billy overcame his size,
      C                  Am
Yeah, Billy overcame his size.
                           G7
When he died to save those other men,
                   C
Billy overcame his size.
