Intro: G C Em D G


 G                      C
 I've been a waiter, a roofer, a clerk 
      D                     G
 I've shovelled manure till my pride hurt
      G                             C
 When you're starting out, it's all part of the work 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do

 G                     C
 I've been evicted for not making rent 
      D                        G
 Made my Daddy wonder where my good sense went
         G                    C
 For the price of a dream, my years have been spent 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do

Chorus:

      C                            D
 So I stand here tonight with this six string guitar 
       G                     C
 To be something I've always been in my heart
 C                      D
 Just for the chance to play you my song 
     G                      C
 The thrill when I hear you singing along
           Am         C               D
 It's been worth everything I've been through 
              G
 To do what I do


  G                    C
 I've played for empty tables and chairs 
     D                             G
 The drunks that don't listen, the crowds that don't care
 G                                       C
 Been told countless times Boy you ain't goin' nowhere 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do

Chorus:

      C                    D
 So I hope the critics and sceptics alike
 G                      C
 All bought a ticket to this show tonight
     C                          D
 And they'll see firsthand that I have survived 
     G                     C
 And what doesn't kill you makes you more alive
         Am         C         D
 And I'm one of the fortunate few 
              G
 To do what I do



 G                        C
 There's so much joy this music can bring 
    D                           G
 So I count my blessings when I step up to sing
               G                        C
 Cause they're so many people who would give anything 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do
 
     C           D
 And I thank you
                 G
 I can do what I do
