Be Yourself

Chris Cornell




Chris strums the chords all the way through the first chorus with palm muting, but it
without palm muting aswell.

Am C F D# x 2

Verse 1:
     Someone falls to pieces sleepin all alone, someone kills the pain    
    Spinning in the silence to finally drift away
    Someone gets excited in a chapel yard, catches a bouquet
    Another lays a dozin white roses on a grave  


To be yourself is all that you can do      ...eeah
To be yourself is all that you can do      ...eeah

Verse 2:
    Someone finds salvation in everyone, another only pain
    Someone tries to hide himself down inside himself he prays
    Someone swears his true love until the end of time, another runs away
    Separate or united, healthy or insane

Sing the chorus line four times.

Solo: Play the intro chords a couple of times: Am C F D#

Bridge: (remember to use the other chords)

    Even when you've paid enough
been put upon or been held up   
with every single memory of
the good or bad, faces of luc 
don't lose any sleep tonight
i'm sure everything will end up allright 
     you may win or lose

Outro: Just do variations of the chorus, like this:

But to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah-eah...
To be yourself is all that you can do

To be yourself is all that you can do, yeah-eah
To be yourself is all that you can do-oo
To be yourself is all that you can--
Be yourself is all that you can--
Be yourself is all that you can dooooooohoooo
