|Am ''Am/B | C ' C/G '| repeat 3 times      | F'''|''''|G A | 
        Bm                    D 
Got a grand house out in the country. 
        Bm                  D 
Marble pillars holding the door. 
Em             G                D                    A 
Empty bottles lining the wall from the night before. 
       Bm                D 
Got a Roller out in the garage. 
          Bm                      D 
But the wheels are stuck to the floor. 
        Em          G                D                   A 
Got no reason to go anywhere -- no friends call anymore. 

                    Bm D                    Bm D 
I don't want to be me,  I don't want to be me, 
                     G Em             G              A 
I know it's hard to see, but I don't want to be me. 
  

         Bm                 D 
Had me playing down at the palace. 
          Bm                     D 
I was declared the belle of the ball. 
          Em                      G 
Made the boys take my goods and chattels away -- 
          D                  A 
now I'm staring at an empty hall. 

                    Bm D                    Bm D 
I don't want to be me,  I don't want to be me, 
                     G Em             G              A 
I know it's hard to see, but I don't want to be me. 
  
  

Am               C      Am 
Pardon me -- I'm on my way. 
Am                 C   Am 
Pardon me but I'm going. 
Am             C      Am         F                     G Am 
Taking on the simple life and I feel the grass roots growing. 
Am                          C    Am 
I'm going to ride the ragged road 
Am                               C    Am 
diamond spurs jangling into the sunset. 
Am                    C    Am         F             G    Am 
No circuits running overload -- Well maybe I'm not done yet. 
  

             Bm                  D 
Now there's nothing left in the cupboard 
           Bm                    D 
and three bears' been eating my soup. 
    Em               G                   D      A 
My life is one big critical mess if you take a look. 
         Bm               D 
And the butler's off in Ibiza -- 
      Bm                 D 
on expense account gone berserk. 
       Em                       G          D               A 
But I can't check out of this crazy world without being a jerk. 

                    Bm D                    Bm D 
I don't want to be me,  I don't want to be me, 
                     G Em             G              A 
I know it's hard to see, but I don't want to be me. 
  

Am               C      Am 
Pardon me -- I'm on my way. 
Am                 C Am 
Pardon me but I'm going. 
Am             C      Am         F                     G Am 
Taking on the simple life and I feel the grass roots growing. 
Am                            C   Am 
I'm going to ride the ragged road 
Am                               C  Am 
diamond spurs jangling into the sunset. 
Am                    C  Am           F             G    Am 
No circuits running overload -- Well maybe I'm not done yet. 
      F    G        D 
Well maybe I'm not done yet.
