It Ain't Easy Bieng Me - Chris Knight

Hey guys!! Happy new year again! This is a simpler version i figured out for those
of you just learning.. The other one I submitted is Right.. this one is just simpler
and sounds pretty darn close... 
Sounds better/more correct if played with a Capo on 1st fret.
Shilo Zaba


G Em D C               It Ain't Easy Being Me

G                                  Em        D     C
There ought to be a town somewhere named for how I feel
G                                            Em         D    C
Yeah I could be the mayor down there and say welcome to Sorryville
G                                         Em          D     C
It wouldn't be on a map nowhere you might say that it don't exist
A                                  C               D
But if you make enough wrong turns it'd be hard to miss
G                                               Em    D     C
There ought to be a bridge somewhere they could dedicate to me
G                                        Em     D    C
I'd probably come to the ceremony with a can of gasoline
G                                  Em         D      C
Walk on over to the other side and there I'd light a match
And sit and stare through the smoke and flames
C                        D
Wondering how I'm gonna get back...

C               G
Why do I do the things I do
      Am                   Em
Was I born this way am I a self made fool
C                        G
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
  Am                   Em
I need your love but I break your heart...
      C                      G
And I know the words that'll bring you back
      Am                     Em
But I don't say nothing as I watch you pack
C                       G                 A
I had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
C        D          G   Em D C
It ain't easy being me

G                                Em   D          C
There ought to be a sideshow act for freaks like me
G                                            Em          D   C
Yeah I could be the star of the show with my name on the marquee
G                                    Em          D      C
In a room with a big red button that says danger do not touch
A                                          C             D
Twice a day I'd mash it down and you could watch me self-distruct

(repeat chorus)

I watched a video of Chris Knight playing live. He had the capo on 2nd fret. And I might add that to get it to sound right in the verse you need to keep your pinky on the 1st string on the 3rd fret and ring finger on the 2nd string on the 3rd fret the entire time while playing the G,Em,D, and C chords.
