I Don’t Want To Be Me
by Jethro Tull


Intro:  
 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.
