Common Day Man.
Dwight Yoakam.
Album: Falling From Grace (O.S.T)

Intro: E A E A B E x 2

E                            A B E
Oh oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
           A       B      E    A
I'd rather shake a honest hand,
                           E
Than the one that bears me gifts
           A        B         E
I'd rather bare the wounds of love,
     A                B
Than know a strangers kiss
    A              E
I'd rather rule my spirit
     A        E         B
Than rule the wealth of lands,
     E         A        B                 A
It's just this heart of clay that makes me,
             E
A common day man,

Chorus:
       A                        E
Common day man, knocking on the same doors,
       A                        E
Common day man, sweeping up the same floors,
       A                        F#m       B
Common day man, you always know where you stand, yeah,
                  E   A E A B E x 2
With a common day man,

             A         B        E   A
Hey, what if God wrote down our sins,
                  E
And put them on a sign,
                 A     B    E
And wrapped them up in neon lights,
   A                             B
So we could see then as we drove by,
       A                           E       A
Do you think we might just get the picture,
                        B
Do you think you'd understand,
     E         A        B                 A
It's just this heart of clay that makes me,
             E
A common day man,

       A                        E
Common day man, knocking on the same doors,
       A                        E
Common day man, sweeping up the same floors,
       A                        F#m       B
Common day man, you always know where you stand,
                  E
With a common day man,

   G#m
In the highest hall of judgement,
          A    B   E
There are lies and bigotry,
      G#m
Don't believe a thing they tell you,
         A                B
And only half of what you see,
G#m
You can say these aren't our sins,
        A        B     E
There's no blood on my hands,
    A                        E
But talk is cheap, and so is life,
          A       B   A E
If no one gives a damn,

     A       B       E    A
Take away my foolish pride,
                    E
And darling take my hand,
       A                 B    E
I know girl, you've been crucified,
             A                   B
And had your love spilled on the land,
A                    E
Could I restore your faith in me,
         A               B
And show you the kind of man I am, oh,
     E         A        B               E  A
It's just this heart of clay that makes me,
             E
A common day man,

Chorus:
       A                        E
Common day man, knocking on the same doors,
       A                        E
Common day man, sweeping up the same floors,
       A                        F#m                    B
Common day man, you always know where you stand, yeah, yeah,
                  E   A E                 A B E A E
With a common day man,   yeah, yeah, yeah.
