      About "Billy Overcame His Size"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "Billy Overcame His Size"

      Billy never made the football team
      'Cause Billy's size was small
      But Billy's brother was a mighty lad
      And played a lot of high school ball

      And Billy's daddy never favored him
      He catered to the bigger guys
      But later on in a bigger way
      Billy overcame his size

      The years flew by and Billy grew
      But he never got very big
      We called him shorty but he never got mad
      He was always good for a dig

      And we paid no mind when he fell in line
      And left with the other guys
      And the Sargent laughed at his skinny frame
      But Billy overcame his size

      Billy overcame his size
      Yeah, Billy overcame his size
      Later on in a bigger way
      Bill overcame his size

      Billy's brother made a football star
      And the biggest man in town
      And the scholarship that kept him home
      Never seemed to bring him down

      But on the other hand his brother Bill
      Put pride in his daddy's eyes
      When he died to save those other men
      Billy overcame his size

      Billy overcame his size
      Billy overcame his size
      When he died to save those other men
      Billy overcame his size
