Verse 1:
 	   E
 	 I've been obnoxious

 	 I've been unconscious

 	 I've been all kinds of things that are hard to spell
                    A  
 	 I've been unruly

 	 Speakin' truly

 	 I've been so cool i couldn't hardly even stand myself


Verse 2:
                       E
 	 I've been a monster

 	 Without a sponsor

 	 I've been Dr. Jekill and Mr. Hyde
                     A
 	 I've been a goner
                      
 	 I've been a loner

 	 And when my mixture was right
                                   
 	 Hell,i'm a nice bunch of guys


Chorus:
          B                                    A     E
 	 I am what i am 'cause i ain't what i used to be
          B                                           A      E
 	 'Cause it is what it is but it ain't what it used to be


Verse 3:
                   E
 	 I been a mover

 	 I was a shaker

 	 You had a girlfriend

 	 I tried to snake her
                       A
 	 I've been mysterious

 	 I've been delirious

 	 I've been so weird it would have killed a normal man

 	 
Verse 4:
                   E 
 	 I wanted money

 	 I wanted power

 	 I want a monument

 	 Kind of like the Eiffel Tower
                    A                    
 	 I've been lost at sea
                    
 	 I've been lost in space

 	 And when i fall in love
                              
 	 I fall all over the place


Chorus.


Verse 5:
          A
 	 And you can go on forever and make the same mystakes
            B
 	 Or you can stand up on your hind legs and change your fate
           A 
 	 Go on and do until you finally see
           B  
 	 What it is that you was that you don't want to be


Verse 6:
                    E
 	 I was an outlaw

 	 I was an in-law

 	 I was a scapegoat

 	 That was the last straw
                     A
 	 I hit the highway

 	 Singin' my way
                                
 	 But it wound up sounding like you'll never walk alone

 	 
Verse 7:
                  E 
 	 I got a story

 	 Reflected glory

 	 Is the way that i've been seein' for most of my life
                         A
 	 I heard the laughter
                     
 	 Up in the rafter
                                      
 	 But i never ever thought that the joke was on me


Chorus(x2).
