E        B           C#m
I've got money in my pocket
           A               E
I like the color of my hair
     B                C#m
I've got a friend who loves me
            A               E
Got a house, I've got a car
           B            C#m
I've got a good mother
        A                      E
and her voice is what keeps me here

        B
Feet on ground
         C#m
Heart in hand
       A
Facing forward

Be yourself
E   B  C#m                   A
I,         I've never wanted anything
   E        B    C#m                   A
No I've, no I've,    I've never wanted anything
E      B   C#m  A
so bad...       so bad

E         B                C#m
Cardboard masks of all the people
         A
I've been
E               B               C#m
thrown out with all the rusted, tangled
       A                   E
dented God Damned miseries
          B               C#m
You could say I'm hard to hold
           A
But if you knew me you'd know
E       B              C#m
I've got a good father
        A                         E
And his strength is what makes me cry

        B
Feet on ground
         C#m
Heart in hand
       A
Facing forward

Be yourself
E   B  C#m                   A
I,         I've never wanted anything
   E        B    C#m                   A
No I've, no I've,    I've never wanted anything
E      B   C#m  A
so bad...       so bad

Might be hard to sing for some men, but practice at a slow tempo, and over the weeks, increase the tempo, and always redo tricky verses, lines, etc., which may mean not having the strength to sing as many songs as you usually do, so be prepared to make a worthwhile sacrifice :-)
