Capo 4

C 
My mother once told me
Esus 		    E	 
The thicker your skin,
A7sus 			A7
The better off you’ll be
				dm
When this world brings you down
Dm/G    		/G#	
It’s trying to control me
Am			dm7
Leave me without hope
F
In the past I’ve been burned
G
But I’ve lived and I’ve learned

Chorus:
C 				    G/B
‘Neath the shelter of the pouring rain
	am			G
In the absence of this fear and pain
C				G/B
I will finally bid my ball and chains
Am – G 
A fond farewell
C 				G/B  
On a road that leads me to my place
	Am			G	
Gonna rid my heart of past disgrace
	F			G
I will finally bid this sluggish pace
		Am – G 
A fond farewell…
 
C
I heard their reservations
Esus				E
And I read their bitter words
A7sus				A7
I shined a light upon their wisdom
			dm
No matter how absurd
Dm/G				  /G#		
Oh they broke my heart to pieces
Am				dm7
And I questioned my own beliefs
F			
My dignity was gone
G
It’s time to move on…

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
F
Say goodbye to feeling sorry for myself
To begging others for far too much help
dm
This is my hand these are the cards that I’ve been dealt
Only I can make these changes, nobody else
F
Say goodbye to these sleepless nights
Those corridors with no end in sight
dm
A driven man with these words I write
G
I’m making peace with my soul tonight

(Repeat Chorus)
