The Grand Optimist

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		
() 



Intro: C Em Am C Em Am 

Verse: 

C          Em             Am 
I fear I'm dying of complications 

      C              Em                    Am 
Complications due to things that I've left undone 

            C                  Em 
That all my debts will be left unpaid 

            Am 
Feel like a cripple without a cane 

           C               Em 
I'm like a jack of all trades 

                  Am 
Who's a master of none 


Verse 2: 

C               Em 
Then there's my father 

Am 
He's always looking on the bright side 

       C            Em                       Am 
Saying things like "son life just ain't that hard" 

          C            Em 
He is the grand optimist 

         Am          
I am the world's poor pessimist 

             C                Em 
You give him buttons sometimes 

                   Am 
And he will escape unscarred 


Pre-Chorus/Chorus:  

G                       Am 
I guess I take after my mother    (2x) 


I used to be quite resilient 
Gain no strength from counting the beads on a rosary  
Now the wound has begun to turn 
Another lesson that has gone unlearned 
But this is not a cry for pitty or for sympathy 

I guess I take after my mother    (2x)
