Notes:

Capo on the 4th fret to match Fastball’s recording.  Use chord forms as 
noted, rather than starting off in C# as the song is written.

If you’re playing along with the recording, the primary rhythm guitar does 
not articulate all the chords in the first two lines of each verse. 
Instead, just hang on the “A” chord while the bass plays out the “G” 
and “D”.  If you’re playing at a campfire you need to play all the chords 
in the verse to properly accompany the vocal melody.

For the intro riff (and the riff at the end of each verse) you should 
ignore the high “E” string and catch the key notes on the “B” string (and 
note that for the “G” chord in this riff you should play the 3rd fret on 
the “B” string, not the high “E” string – this will create the ring on that 
note the riff requires).

Well I don’t wanna be president

Superman or Clarke Kent

       A       G          D        A

I don’t know my right from wrong

I don’t wanna be your dream come true

    A       G       D        A
And I don’t know my sky from ground

I can be myself      how ‘bout you?
