Artist: Gavin Degraw
Song: I Don't Want To Be

[Verse 1]
Am      
I don't need to be anything other
Am                         
Than a prison guard's son
Am
I don't need to be anything other 
Am           
Than a specialist's son
Am
I don't have to be anything other
Am 
Than the birth of two souls in one
Am
Part of where I'm going, is knowing where I'm coming from

[Hook]
F       C                   G                         Am7            F
I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately  
F     C                      G                      Am7     
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind. 
F            C                             G 
I'm tired of looking round rooms wondering what I gotta do 
   Am7                 F
Or who I'm supposed to be. 
F       C                  G           Am7 
I don't want to be anything other than me
 
[Verse 2]
Am
I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
Am
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
Am
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am
Am I the only one who noticed?
Am
I can't be the only one who's learned

[Bridge]
Em7                        Em7
Can I have everyone's attention please 
Em7                         Em7
See, not like this and that 
Em7                         Am
You're gonna have to leave                         
                   Am
I came from the mountain, the crust of creation 
                             C                        
My whole situation made from clay, dust, stone 
    D
And now I'm telling everybody

[Chorus]
(to end)

F       C                   G                         Am7            F
I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately  
F     C                      G                      Am7     
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind. 
F            C                             G 
I'm tired of looking round rooms wondering what I gotta do 
   Am7                 F
Or who I'm supposed to be. 
F       C                  G           Am7 
I don't want to be anything other than me

The chords are G#, D#, A# and Cm7 (or maybe Cm) in the original version.

This version has lowered the song three steps to F, C, G and Am7.
