 The Grand Optimist from City and Colour Little Hell album
 These are just the basic chords but there are some little twists you can   catch quite easily.
 Have fun with this beautiful song!

 Capo 2

 Intro C  G  Am

 C          G                    Am                    
 I fear I'm dying from complications
 C                     G                       Am
 Complications due to things that I've left undone
             C                  G
 That all my debts will be left unpaid
 Feel like a cripple without a cane
            C                     G
 I'm like a jack of all trades
 Who's a master of none

 C     G        Am   X2

 Then there's my father
 G                          Am
 He's always looking on the bright side
        C            G                         Am          
 Saying things like "Son, life just ain't that hard."
           C         G
 He is the grand optimist
 I am the world's poor pessimist
 You give him burdensome times
         G             Am
 And he will escape unscarred

G        G                         Am       Am
          I guess I take after my mother    x2

C          G        Am          
 I used to be quite resilient
           C                         G            Am
 Gain no strength from counting the beads on a rosary 
          C                 G
 Now the wound has begun to turn
 Another lesson that has gone unlearned
              C             G                Am
 But this is not a cry for pity or for sympathy

G         G                           Am      Am
           I guess I take after my mother     x4
