The Man You Want Me To Be 
by Phil Joel

Most of these chords are not 
actually played in the song, but 
are here for acoustic players.
The most prevalent electric guitar 
parts are in the first three
choruses.  It sounds like it's 
played with a fuzz pedal.

Verse 1:

Dm 
I played the fool so long 

Thought I was so strong 
Bb
All the while 
                   F
You knew it wasn’t true 
Dm
Rerunning in my mind 

Memories of another time 
     Bb
When all I ever lived for 
    F
Was You

Chorus: 

Dm
Jesus 
            Bb                 F
Make me the man You want me to be 
Dm
Jesus 
            Bb                 F
Make me the man You want me to be

Verse 2:

Dm
I’ve been listening all my life 

Words are spoken all the time 
Bb                             F
I have heard the liars and the true 
Dm
Voices twisting in the air 
Sweetly sounding so unclear 
    Bb 
But nothing can replace a word 
     F
From You

Chorus: 

Dm
Jesus 
            Bb                 F
Make me the man You want me to be

Make me the man You want me to be

Verse 3:

  Dm
A child is but for so long 

Turn around those days are gone 
Bb
Nothing can replace the years 
   F
Of youth 

       Dm
I have swallowed lies 

That tasted true 

The plans I thought were sent 
From You 
     Bb
When all You wanted was for me was
F      
To be still

Chorus: 

Dm
Jesus 
            Bb                 F
Make me the man You want me to be 
Dm
Jesus 
            Bb              F
Make me the man You want to see
