What's a Boy to Do 
by Mat Kearney

Chords:
                         
   Asus2      (577600)
        alt:  (x02200)   
   C#m7       (x46600)    
   Bsus4      (x24400)    
   Aadd9      (x77600)



A fantastic and simple song...the tempo starts slow and picks up as it goes.  This 
is how I like to play it.  To make for easier playing you can use the alternate 
version of Asus2 throughout (I believe Mat himself does this live sometimes). I 
think the fuller one sounds better, but both give the same effect.  Happy playing :)


VERSE:

    Asus2        C#m7            Bsus4
I'm sure that I'm moving to St Louis
    
    Asus2              C#m7               Bsus4
Three long years wondering here in New York City

    Asus2                   C#m7            Bsus4
I guess I'm looking for the right way to do this

     Asus2                   C#m7                 Bsus4
I guess I'm looking for the right things to call pretty



PRE-CHORUS:  
    Asus2                   C#m7                      Bsus4
Young boys playing in the park turning their backs to take a shot

    Asus2                           C#m7                         Bsus4
You know I'll stay sharp around here 'cause they're stoning and leaving type

          Asus2                       C#m7                      Bsus4
It's the kind of love that comes and goes when there's company coming around


CHORUS:

Asus2          C#m7                   Bsus4
What's a boy to do who knows no man now?

Asus2          C#m7                   Bsus4
What's a boy to do who knows no man now?

VERSE:
Daddy's been looking down his nose at all of them
And I've been looking round for someone to tell me who I am
He kept saying I was to young to finish a fight
I'd die each time they came I never got to draw my knife

PRE-CHORUS:
Well it was just a pair of shoes in a middle school room with the world watching in
And angel is crying I'm dying just a little inside as they ran away
Funny which words stick around 20 years down when you're driving alone

CHORUS:
What's a boy to do when there's no man at home?
What's a boy to do when there's no man at home?


BRIDGE 1:         
          Asus2(alt)     C#m7     Bsus4
Well I'll stack all my books in perfect rows

         Asus2(alt)    C#m7  Bsus4
From the biggest down to the smallest ones

       Asus2(alt)  C#m7   Bsus4
And I buy all the perfect clothes

       Asus2(alt)              C#m7         Bsus4
Bullet proof and black, where I look like a son...


PRE-CHORUS:
Well it was just a rain night at his house
A bottle spinning around the room
And everybody's singing and slipping down the bottom halfway rush of blood
And I was grabbing Missy but I was trying to find the light switch in the dark

CHORUS:
What's a boy to do with no man in his heart?
What's a boy to do with no man in his heart?

        
BRIDGE 2:

          Asus2(alt)
It's all quiet for the first time

      Bsus4 
With no voices left to fall I saw

      C#m7
a boy at the bottom of the bridge

      Aadd9
His car was left there on the top

     Asus2(alt)
It's four o'clock in the morning

      Bsus4 
Didn't need to be like this

       C#m7
There's a white sheet left to cover up

      Aadd9
What should have been a holy kiss

     Asus2
It's not like those days

C#m7                   Bsus4
It's not like I'm scared of you


CHORUS:
            Asus2          C#m7       Bsus4
What's the son of man and a boy to do?

            Asus2          C#m7       Bsus4
What's the son of man and a boy to you?
