Hey, this is my first post and I want to go ahead and say thanks to all the people who contribute to this site and keep it running.

I wrote this song last spring and have fiddled around with it from time to time since. At first I started writing it as a poem but soon decided that it would be be better as the lyrics to a song, then as a stand alone poem. I am not very good with figuring out arrangements and think that the chords I selected could be improved upon, so any suggestions will be appreciated.

If you want to get an idea of the tune, you can watch the video of it I uploaded to YouTube.

C
Sorry about that little smack
C
But I couldn't resist a comeback
D
I guess it serves you right you know
G
For stooping down oh so low.

C
I fell for you, you fell for me
C
Should've got my heart a warranty
D
But just you wait and you will see
G
The kind of man that I will be.

Chorus:

G C
Guess what! I'm gonna be somebody.
G C D
Someday soon I'm gonna break these chains.
E
Somehow I'm gonna fly away
A E
Then you're gonna wish you'd stayed.

C
You're gonna want me then,
C
When my boat comes crashing in
D
On the winds of a hurricane
G
Whole world's gonna know my name.

C
Could've been the girl with me
C
I'm sure one day you will agree
D
By my side's the place to be.
G
I sure hope he keeps you happy.

Chorus

C
As for me I will be strong
C
I'll move on before too long
D
Wont take long when I recall
G
You weren't in for the long haul

C
Don't you worry 'bout your name
C
'cause it's not my style to defame
D
I'm not gonna take revenge
G
But if you start missin' this....

[music screeches to halt]

[spoken] Well...sounds like a personal problem.

Chorus

G C D G C D

C
I love you and wish you the best.
C
Hold those good times close to your breast.
D
Just think of me now and then
G
And what we could have been.

Chorus
