What's a Boy to Do by Mat Kearney Chords: Asus2 (577600) alt: (x02200) C#m7 (x46600) Bsus4 (x24400) Aadd9 (x77600) A fantastic and simple song...the tempo starts slow and picks up as it goes. This is how I like to play it. To make for easier playing you can use the alternate version of Asus2 throughout (I believe Mat himself does this live sometimes). I think the fuller one sounds better, but both give the same effect. Happy playing :) VERSE: Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 I'm sure that I'm moving to St Louis Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 Three long years wondering here in New York City Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 I guess I'm looking for the right way to do this Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 I guess I'm looking for the right things to call pretty PRE-CHORUS: Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 Young boys playing in the park turning their backs to take a shot Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 You know I'll stay sharp around here 'cause they're stoning and leaving type Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 It's the kind of love that comes and goes when there's company coming around CHORUS: Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 What's a boy to do who knows no man now? Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 What's a boy to do who knows no man now? VERSE: Daddy's been looking down his nose at all of them And I've been looking round for someone to tell me who I am He kept saying I was to young to finish a fight I'd die each time they came I never got to draw my knife PRE-CHORUS: Well it was just a pair of shoes in a middle school room with the world watching in And angel is crying I'm dying just a little inside as they ran away Funny which words stick around 20 years down when you're driving alone CHORUS: What's a boy to do when there's no man at home? What's a boy to do when there's no man at home? BRIDGE 1: Asus2(alt) C#m7 Bsus4 Well I'll stack all my books in perfect rows Asus2(alt) C#m7 Bsus4 From the biggest down to the smallest ones Asus2(alt) C#m7 Bsus4 And I buy all the perfect clothes Asus2(alt) C#m7 Bsus4 Bullet proof and black, where I look like a son... PRE-CHORUS: Well it was just a rain night at his house A bottle spinning around the room And everybody's singing and slipping down the bottom halfway rush of blood And I was grabbing Missy but I was trying to find the light switch in the dark CHORUS: What's a boy to do with no man in his heart? What's a boy to do with no man in his heart? BRIDGE 2: Asus2(alt) It's all quiet for the first time Bsus4 With no voices left to fall I saw C#m7 a boy at the bottom of the bridge Aadd9 His car was left there on the top Asus2(alt) It's four o'clock in the morning Bsus4 Didn't need to be like this C#m7 There's a white sheet left to cover up Aadd9 What should have been a holy kiss Asus2 It's not like those days C#m7 Bsus4 It's not like I'm scared of you CHORUS: Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 What's the son of man and a boy to do? Asus2 C#m7 Bsus4 What's the son of man and a boy to you?
