Lyrics

I Told The World          (Capo 3 -  Bb)

 

GCGDG

 

G                                         C

I told the world I’d be famous

G                                                   D

But the world must not have heard

G                                      C

I know no one was listening

G                      D                   G

Still I was chirping like a bird

 

G                                         C

I told the world I’d be a hero

G                                              D

But the world really didn’t care

G                                  C

I know why no one believed me

G                      D           G

I was always running scared

 

G                                           C

I told the world I’d be an idol

G                                                 D

But the world didn’t get the word

G                                        Em

I know why no one was listening

         C             D                     G

My words were too often slurred

 

Chorus

C                                          G

I’ve got no reason to be happy

C                                          G

I’ve got no reason to cry

C                                              G

I’ve got no reason to stop drinkin’

C                      D         G

Except you’re in my life

G                                       C

I told the world I’d be better

G                                  D

Better than I was before

G                                            C

I’ve still got a long way to go

G                      D                    G

But now I’m off the ground floor

 

G                                       C

I told the world I’d be loyal

G                                              D

I know it’s the right thing to do

G                                                   C

I’ve made mistakes along the way 

G                               D                       G

But I’ll always be loyal to you

 

G                                              C

I told the world I’d be with you

G                                  D

Until forever and a day

G                                              Em

I know that everyone was listening

        C       D                G

It’s all I really had to say

 

 

Chorus

C                                          G

I’ve got no reason to be happy

C                                          G

I’ve got no reason to cry

C                                              G

I’ve got no reason to stop drinkin’

C                      D         G

Except you’re in my life

C                      D         G

Except you’re in my life
