(Jay Knowles/Wynn Varble)

I could say it's all her fault
She never had any patience at all
I'm a complicated guy
And she didn't try to understand

I could claim I had nothing to do
With the fact I'm lonesome and blue
But that wouldn't be true
I'm a self made man

Yeah I'm the one that fooled around
And let the one who loved me down
She had more of me than she could stand
I blamed everyone but me
But now that it's too late I see
Nobody helped me get to where I am
I'm a self made man

I could blame it on the way I was raised
Or I could say I was just to afraid
To lay my heart in somebody else's hands
I could always make one more excuse
But in the end what's the use
I might as well face
I'm a self made man

Yeah I'm the one that fooled around
And let the one who loved me down
She had more of me than she could stand
I blamed everyone but me
But now that it's too late I see
Nobody helped me get to where I am
I'm a self made man

Oh I blamed everyone but me
But now that it's to late I see
Nobody helped me get to where I am
I'm a self made man
Self made man
Self made man
I can't blame anybody but me
