[Verse 1]
A           C#m         F#m           Esus    E7
I am what I am I am my own special creation.
A               C#m                D           Bm7     E7 
So, come take a look, give me the hook or the ovation. 
     A   C#7      F#m7                                            
It's my world that I want to have a little pride in;
Bsus    B7           Bm7-5          
my world, and it's not a place I have to hide in. 
A                  C#m                F#m    Bm7 E7    A
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say I am  what I 

[Verse 2]
B           D#m               G#m           C#m     F#
I am what I am I don't want praise I don't want pity 
B               D#m                G#m           C#m     F#
I bang my own drum some think it's noise I think it's pretty 
        B   D#7      G#m7                              
And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle 
C#m      C#7     C#m7-5                                       
Why not try and see things from a different angle 
B                  D#m                G#m    C#m7 F#11    B
  Your life is a shame till you can shout out I am  what I am

[Verse 3]
C            Em            Am7     Am6   Dm   G7
I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses 
C             Em                 Am            Dm7   G7
I deal my own deck sometimes the ace sometimes the deuces 
  CMaj7   C    Bm7-5 E7   Am                                
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit 
D9sus    D9        Dm7-5                                                            
One life so it's time to open up your closet 
C                    Em                 Am
  Life's not worth a damn till you can shout "hey world"

Dm7          G9             C
 I am          what I         Am

Am F Dm7  C

To play it in the key from the soundtrack, the first verse should be Capo 2, but the second and third verses should be Capo 3 (as currently written). Could you fix to be consistent? Either raise the second and third verses a half step or lower the first verse a half step.
