The Way I Should

  		

Intro: C   D   G   G   C   D   G   G 

G                               D                               G 
A cold wind against my shoulder woke me up in the middle of the night 
   Em 
An autumn leaf was scraping against my window 
                                 G 
Like it was tryin' hard to get inside 
           C                              D 
And then a ghost that I had met before he kept me up till dawn 
    G                                  C 
And everything I thought was right was suddenly all wrong 
              D 
He said "your score is looking pretty bad" 
                                           G 
Then he asked me what it was that I had to show 


G 
So I went runnin' down a list of things 
D                                     G 
Some were real, but on some of them I lied 
         Em 
'Cause I felt I had to justify each breath that 
                          G 
I'd been breathin' in this life 
       C                           D 
Then I realized I was playing into someone else's rules 
G                               C 
Tryin' to keep my score up in a game I did not choose 
       D 
Then I looked that ghost straight in the eye and said 
                                    G 
"You'd better not be coming back by again" 


G                          C 
And it's true that I don't work near as hard 
       D 
As you tell me that I'm supposed to 
G                         C 
 I don't run as fast as I could 
                          D 
But I live just the way I want to 
                     G 
And that's the way I should 



Instrumental: C   D   G   C   C   D   G   G 


G 
October's leaves were dancin' 'round 
     D                                  G 
Like angels dressed in robes of red and gold 
    Em 
But November's come and gone now 
                                              G 
And they're lyin' in the gutter out along the road 
              C                                  D 
They're gonna make their way out to the ditch or someday to the sea 
            G                                      C 
But they'll get to where they're goin' without the help of you or me 
            D 
And if each life is just a grain of sand 
                                           G 
I'm tellin' you man, this grain of sand is mine 


G                          C 
And it's true that I don't work near as hard 
       D 
As you tell me that I'm supposed to 
G                         C 
 I don't run as fast as I could 
                          D 
But I live just the way I want to 
                     G 
And that's the way I should 
    C                     D 
But I live just the way I want to 
                     G 
And that's the way I should
