Jaymes Young - I'll Be Good Chords

[intro] x2
Em  C  G

[verse 1]
                    Em     C          G
I thought I saw the devil, this morning
Em  C   G
Looking in the mirror, drop of rum on my tongue
Em  C        G                  Em  C      G
    With the warning to help me see myself clearer
Am                       G
I never meant to start a fire,
Am               G           Em
I never meant to make you bleed,
I'll be a better man today

[chorus 1]
Em      C             G
I'll be good, I'll be good
         Em       C             G
And I'll love the world, like I should
      Em      C             G
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
               Am                     Em C G  Em C G
For all of the times that I never could.

[verse 2]
                   Em     C         G
My past has tasted bitter for years now,
Em         C       G
So I wield an iron fist
                    Em C G
Grace is just weakness
Or so I've been told.
          Em         C            G
I've been cold, I've been merciless
        Am                             G
But the blood on my hands scares me to death
Am        G            Em
Maybe I'm waking up today

[chorus 2]
Em      C             G
I'll be good, I'll be good
         Em       C             G
And I'll love the world, like I should
      Em      C             G
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
      Em      C             G
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good

[bridge]
               Am                    G
For all of the light that I shut out
               Am                            G
For all of the innocent things that I've doubt
           D   Am                                   G
For all of the bruises that I've caused and the tears
        G       C                         D     Am    G  C
For all of the things that I've done all these years
               D      Am
Yeah, for all of the sparks that I've stomped out
           G               C
For all of the perfect things that I doubt

[chorus 3]
Em      C             G
I'll be good, I'll be good
         Em       C             G
And I'll love the world, like I should
      Em      C             G
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
               Am                     Em C G
For all of the times that I never could.

[outro]
Em  C  G
