Decemberists



The Decemberists - I Was Meant For The Stage Chords 

Play it softly and mean it - Brian

C
I was meant for the stage, 
F                   C
I was meant for the curtain. 
C     Cmaj9    Am          Am7/G
I was meant to tread these boards, 
   F              C
Of this much i am certain. 

C
I was meant for the crowd, 
F                   C
I was meant for the shouting. 
C     Cmaj9    Am          Am7/G
I was meant to raise these hands 
     F               C       G
With quiet all about me. oh, oh. 

C
Mother, please, be proud. 
F             C
Father, be forgiven. 
C    Cmaj9      Am       Am7/G
Even though you told me 'Son, 
       F              C          G
you'll never make a living.' oh, oh. 

G                            F
From the floorboards to the fly, 
                      C
Here I was fated to reside. 
                       G
And as I take my final bow, 
                      C
Was there ever any doubt? 
                            F
And as the spotlights fade away, 
                                 C
And you're escorted through the foyer,
                             G 
You will resume your callow ways, 
                          C
But I was meant for the stage.
