Rosanne Cash - The Real Me


 
Intro - C - Am - F - G - 2x's


(verse 1)
 
C                     Am           G                   C
I don't know what you feel no more when you look in my eyes,
C                            Am                   G                   Fm
I know I'm the same girl who walked out that door, but I'm brand new inside,
C                           Am             G                        C
Maybe what I'm sayin' ain't true after all, I take it a minute at a time,
C                      Am                F               G
Maybe all I want is to hold you right now with no compromise,
 
 
(chorus) 
            Dm   G    C       C/B     Am
This is the real me, breakin' down at last,
              Dm   G    C       C/B      Am
Hey, it's the real me, crawlin' out of my past,
          Dm   G              Dm   G       Am - G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,
 
 
(verse 2)
C                 Am           G                C 
The numbness overcomes me now like alcohol and fear,
C                    Am                   G                Fm
And I want to crawl inside you, baby, but I don't want you near,
C                 Am             G             C
A woman's her own mystery, not a shadow of her man,
C                             Am                  F                   G
But I'm not a queen inside a mirror no more, I'm not a guard to hold hand,
 

(chorus) 
            Dm   G    C       C/B     Am
This is the real me, breakin' down at last,
              Dm   G    C       C/B      Am
Hey, it's the real me, crawlin' out of my past,
          Dm   G              Dm   G       Am - G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,
 
 
(bridge) 
Dm                 G                  C      C/B         Am
Well, I've got no answers now, and I don't expect them of you
Dm                     G                         F                       G
Thank God for second chances, baby, coz there's something I can give to you,
 
 
(ending chorus)
             Dm   G    C       C/B     Am 
And it's the real me, breakin' down at last,
              Dm   G    C       C/B     Am
Hey, it's the real me, crawlin' out of my past,
          Dm   G              Dm   G       Am - G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,
          Dm   G              Dm   G       Am - G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,
