Simplify chords 

Well I bit on my lip, and I kicked at my toes 
No, I don't need your lecture cause your lecture won't show 
           D          A         E 
That you told me so I told you so 
But I would have managed, I would have been fine 
I'd do it myself and I'd do it just my way, 
    D             A              E 
I'm a big man for thinking just so. 

A                                        E 
But somebody told me that your mother was born 
A                                      E 
Oh a wandering woman with a spirit so sworn of the riverside 
A                                  B          E                     A 
And it never surprised me but it meant that my love was immobilized 
         B               E             A 
Well, it meant that my love was immobilized  
           D                A                     E 
Cause when it comes, it comes when it does. 

But you came in the middle and you fell in my hands 
Oh a, wonderful woman and an average man. 
       D              A             E 
See that makes me the lucky man 
I won't be deserving, but I won't be denied 
See, I fell in this position, I will still teach my kids pride 
       D            A          E 
Because failure's a part of it all 
         D                       A                    E  
And if failure don't hurt then failure don't work at all 

A                                               E 
But somebody told me, our nephew was born 
A                                     E 
Oh, a beautiful baby, so smart and so sure of his little self 
A                              B            E         A                               
And in a wonderful way he was making me feel so small 
    B       E          A                    
Was making me feel so small, 
    B        E            A 
Was making me feel so small. 
     D               A           E 
And I don't think I've felt this before. 

  A                   E                   A     
In all the reasons to come, well they override my body and, 
             E                        A                                 E 
I point to the sun, cause where it's warm is where the wilderness grows 
And it grows, and it grows 'till it all becomes nothing  
       A               E 
And nothing is left as you know. 

    A                                    E 
(We walked it for a thousand years, with broken eyes and salted ears 
     A                                           E 
Complaining 'bout the weather like we ever had a choice. 
          A                                    E  
Through all the noise and self abuse, you waited for your fill of truth 
      A                                         E  
Oh I'm terrified I'll achieve nothing at all.)
