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
