      D5   A5    D5  E5            [2X; 12-string enters 2nd time]
      / / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

        D5              E5      D5          E5
      Please don't mistake me or try to make me
            D5        E5       A5
      The shadow of anybody else
      D5            E5      D5              E5
      I ain't the him or her you think I am
                D5      E5            A5
      I'm just trying hard to be myself
                E5                     A5
      Though society's goal is to be part of the whole
                 D5                       E5
      That may sound good to you, not to me


      Let me be, let me be
          D5            E5
      To think like I want to
      Let me be, let me be
              D5        E5
      That's all I ask of you
        D                       C#m   Bm     [1,2: repeat intro  3: to coda]
      I am what I am and that's all I ever can be

Verse 2:

      Don't try to plan me or understand me
      I can't stand to be understood
      I could never give in to or ever live up to
      Being like you think I should
      I've got some inner need that I'm tryin' to heed
      I can't take hand-me-down destiny

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

      Don't try to change me or rearrange me
      To satisfy the selfishness in you
      I'm not a piece of clay to mold to your moves each day
      And I'm not a pawn to be told how to move
      I'm sorry I ain't the fool you thought would play by your rules
      A to-each-is-own philosophy

[repeat chorus]



                     D5     E5       A5
      I said that's all I ever can be   [repeat to fade]
