[Intro]
F C G C
F C G G

[Verse]
F          C             G          C
 The other night I had a crazy dream
F                C           G            C
'Bout a man in a fishing hat selling magazines
F                C               G               C
 All the way from Kingston he'd worked his way down
F               C            G                            C
 I bought him a drink on the night they kicked him out of town

[Pre-Chorus]
         D#                F              C
He said, "You know I don't like the way I am."
D#            F              C
 "No, I don't like the way I am."
     G
"Oh, no."

[Verse]
F                 C              G               C
 And I saw an old fisherman out swayin' on a dock
F                  C                         G                    C
 Swigging a jug of something and a string of fish that he had caught
F             C               G            C
 His wife had left him just a week before
F                  C                   G            C
 She packed up her bags and waltzed on out the door

[Pre-Chorus]
             D#                 F               C
And she said, "You know I don't like the way I am."
D#            F              C
 "No, I don't like the way I am."
             G
And then she cried, right out loud.

[Chorus]
           F         C   G          C
She sang, "Aa-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, ee-ee.
F         C   G       C
Aa-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, ee-ee.
F          C   G          C
Yay-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, ee-ee.
F          C   G       C   F    C      G
Yay-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, eeeeeeeeeeeeeee-eeeee-eeeee

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

[Pre-Chorus]
                 D#                    F              C
Makes me want to say, "You know I don't like the way I am."
D#                F              C
 I sing, "I don't like the way I am."
D#             F                C
 But I'm gonna change the way I am
D#         F                C
 I'm gonna change the way I am
      G            G
Right now. Hear me crying out loud.

[Chorus]
           F         C   G          C
Singing, "Aa-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, ee-ee.
F         C   G       C
Aa-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, ee-ee.
F          C   G          C
Yay-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, ee-ee.
F          C   G       C   F    C      G
Yay-ee, lo-oo, day-ee, eeeeeeeeeeeeeee-eeeee-eeeee

[Verse]
F          C             G          C
 The other night I had a crazy dream
F                C           G            C
'Bout a man in a fishing hat selling old magazines
F                C               G               C
 All the way from Kingston he'd worked his way down
F                   C            G                            G
 And I bought him a drink on the night they kicked him out of town. He said to me just like this, he said

[Pre-Chorus]
D#                    F              C
"You know I don't like the way I am."
D#            F              C
 I sing, "I don't like the way I am."
D#             F                C
 "But I'm gonna change the way I am. Yes I am."
D#         F                C
 "I'm gonna change the way I am"
G                                                G
 Then he played the sweetest song for me, on his squeeze-box by the sea
