E2                                  B3
1   Well this is just a simple song
E4                           B5
2  to say what you done
E6                                B7
3I told you about all those fears
E8
4and away they did run. You sure must
      A9    B10 A11 B12
5be strong...

E21        B22       E23             B24
9When I was just nine years old
E25               B26  E27      B28
10  I swear that I dreamt
 E29              B30     E31
11   Your face on a football field
 B32 E33               B34     E35
12and a kiss that I kept
   B36       A37    B38 A39 B40
13Under my vest,
A41          B42       A43                 B44      E45 B46 E47 B48
14apart from everything but the heart in my chest

16Chorus:
C#m49      B50         E51                 B52    A53            B54      A55   B56
17    I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
C#m57      B58        E59                B60    A61             B62       A63   B64
18    Don't go thinking you got to be tough, and play like a stone
C#m65       B66            E67                    B68    A69    B70   A71   B72    A73        B74         A75
19    Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical      As this little home!

E76        B77         E78          B79
22 My life in an upturned boat,
E80             B81       E82         B83
23   marooned on a cliff
E84               B85     E86
24   You brought me a great big flood
 B87 E88               B89   E90
25and you gave me a lift
        B91      A92      B93
26Girl, what a gift
A94                 B95         A96
27 And you tell me with your tongue and your
             B97       A98                    B99            -Bm-
28 breath goes in my lungs and we float above the rift

31    I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
C#m108      B109        E110                B111    A112             B113       A114   B115
32    Don't go thinking you got to be tough, and play like a stone
C#m116       B117            E118                    B119    A120    B121   A122   B123    A124        B125         A126
