I didn't include the intro/basic verse with this one.
If anyone needs this please drop me a note and I'll
send it to you.


Verse:
 G          D                   A    D
The other night I had a crazy dream
 G                D                         A    D
Bout a man in a fishin hat, he was sellin magazines
 G                 D               A             D
All the way from Kingston he had worked his way down
 G                   D                       A
And I bought him a drink on the night they kicked him outta town

     F                      G             D
He said, "You know I don't like the way I am
 F                G             D
You know I don't like the way I am
 F                G             D
You know I don't like the way I am
        F           G             D
No, no, no I don't like the way I am"


Verse:
And I saw an old fisherman swayin on the dock
Swingin a junk of somethin and the string of fish that he had caught
His wife had left him just a week before
She packed up her bags and waltzed on out the door


She said, "You know I don't like the way I am
You know I don't like the way I am
You know I don't like the way I am
You know I don't like the way I am
And then she cried right aloud


Chorus:
            G        D   A        D
She sang, "Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee
 G        D   A        D
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee
 G        D   A        D
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee
 G        D   A        D       A
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-eeeee-eeeeee"


Verse:
And you and me walked down the shores of our youth
Chasin the sunrise and challenging the truth
It's all so distant now, I've seen too many lies
Turning my vision into crumbling demise

Aww, you know I don't like the way I am
I don't like the way I am
But you know, I'm gonna change the way I am
Oh yes I am, I'm gonna change the way I am
Right now, hear me crying

Sing, Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-he
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-eeeee-eeeeee


Verse:
The other night I had a crazy dream
About a man in a fishin hat he was sellin old magazines
All the way from Kingston he had worked his way down
And I, I bought him a drink on the night they kicked him outta town

He said to me, he said, "You know I don't like the way I am (just like that)
You know I don't like the way I am
But I'm gonna change the way I am, yes I am
I'm gonna change the way I am"


Chorus:
Then he played a song for me on a sqeeze-box
Say hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo
hooo-hooo
hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo
hooo-hooo
hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo-oo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo-oo
hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo-oo
hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo
hooo-hooo

Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-he
Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee
Aaaahhh
