 Capo 2

 Intro C  G  Am

 C          G                    Am                    
 I fear I'm dying from complications
 C                     G                       Am
 Complications due to things that I've left undone
             C                  G
 That all my debts will be left unpaid
             Am
 Feel like a cripple without a cane
            C                     G
 I'm like a jack of all trades
                   Am
 Who's a master of none


 C     G        Am   X2

                  C
 Then there's my father
 G                          Am
 He's always looking on the bright side
        C            G                         Am          
 Saying things like "Son, life just ain't that hard."
           C         G
 He is the grand optimist
          Am
 I am the world's poor pessimist
              C
 You give him burdensome times
         G             Am
 And he will escape unscarred
 

G        G                         Am       Am
          I guess I take after my mother    x2


C          G        Am          
 I used to be quite resilient
           C                         G            Am
 Gain no strength from counting the beads on a rosary 
          C                 G
 Now the wound has begun to turn
          Am                  
 Another lesson that has gone unlearned
              C             G                Am
 But this is not a cry for pity or for sympathy

G         G                           Am      Am
           I guess I take after my mother     x4
