Graham Parker – I'm Just Your Man lyrics

E^ as 0 14 14 13 12 0
A~ as 0 7 7 6 5 0

Intro: E^ / A~ / E^ / A~ / E

I'm not a page in history not something that bold
E A G#m B
I'm not the greatest mystery that was ever told
I may not be who you wanna spend a whole life with alone
E A G#m F#m
I'm not that fascinating with features carved like stone

F#m G#m A A B
But I'll tell you everything before you run away hey
G#m A B E A / E / A
I'll tell you what I am I'm just your man

I'm not a hero or even someone who does good
I'm not made of iron or steel or stone or gold or bronze or wood
I may not notice the little things sometimes I can't see
But I'm not the kind of fool I'm made out to be

F#m G#m A A B
But I love you yes I love you you can understand hey
G#m A B E A
Then you'll know what I am, I'm just your man

B G#m7 C#m7
I'm just your ma a an just your man that's all
B G#m7 C#m7 B A
And if I can't be that I'm no man at all

I'm not a burnin comet that fell out of the sky
E A G#m F#m
I know I'm just like the next clown when I get too high

But I love you yes I love you and if you understand
Then you'll know what I am. I'm just your man

Outro: Same as intro.
