[Intro]
C G C F C

[Verse 1]
F                      C
How am I ever gonna be me
F                      C
How am I ever gonna be me, lord
F                      C
How am I ever gonna be me
G                              Am
If I'm not who I'm supposed to be
          G              Am
A mothers son, a fathers boy
           G                 Am
A brothers friend, a sisters joy
          G              Am
An uncle cool, a cousin true
        G              Am
And who knows a father too
      G                     Am
A shy recluse who once shut in
    G          Am
A patriot, a citizen
          G        Am
Why was I born a mystery
G                      C
How am I ever gonna be me

[Verse 2]
F                      C
How am I ever gonna do right
F                      C
How am I ever gonna do right lord
F                      C
How am I ever gonna do right
              G            Am
And do what's good in your sight
             G            Am
Sometimes my best is good enough
            G               Am
Sometimes I bluff that I am tough
               G                Am
I've turned my cheek instead of fight
              G                    Am
And made them wrong when they were right
            G                  Am
If you help those who help themselves
              G                  Am
How comes the meek don't fare so well
           G                  Am
And I have prayed with all my might
G                      C
How am I ever gonna do right

[Verse 3]
F                      C
How am I ever gonna be saved
F                      C
How am I ever gonna be saved, lord
F                      C
How am I ever gonna be saved
            G            Am
When I have lived a life depraved
                G               Am
I've worshipped money, murdered Cain
          G                 Am
Used your name sometimes in vain
          G                   Am
Worked on Sundays, rocked and rolled
           G           Am
Wanted bad enough I've stole
            G                Am
She came to me what was next door
              G            Am
It's not like we had met before
           G               Am
Oh tell me what else can I say
G                      C
How am I ever gonna be saved

[Verse 4]
F                      C
How am I ever gonna find peace
F                      C
How am I ever gonna find peace, lord
F                      C
How am I ever gonna find peace
           G           Am
Will it be on a golden street
         G                  Am
With big parades and pretty girls
       G             Am
Cotton candy colored swirls
       G                    Am
Waving fields of springtime sun
          G                Am
That wars been never waged upon
G                        Am
My lovers arms, my first release
G                        C
How am I ever gonna find peace
