Capo 1

Verse 1
[D]I can’t change the [G]weather
[D]Change things that [G]never
[D]Come under my [G]sphere
Of [Em]influ[A]ence
[D]I can’t change the [G]minds
Of [D]all those un[G]kind
[D]People who’re
[G]Filled [Em]with re[A]sent

Chorus
[C]But I can [G]control my [D]mind
[C]And make the [G]world a better [D]place
And [C]I can put be[G]hind
[Em]All the things I [A]find
[G]I [A]have no way to [D]change [A]

Verse 2
[D]I can change some [G]things
My [D]actions can take [G]wings
Af[D]fect my little [G]world
With [Em]slight alte[A]rations
[D]All those things I [G]know
Are [D]under my [G]control
[D]Steady their [G]course
[Em]Smooth conster[A]nations

Chorus
[C]But I can’t con[G]trol the [D]sun
[C]Or slow the [G]turning of the [D]world
And [C]I can’t change your [G]mine
If it [Em]turns out I [A]find
[G]You don’t [A]want it to [D]change [A]

Verse 3
[D]The hardest thing for [G]me
[D]Living in this socie[G]ty
[D]Is to let [G]go
Of [Em]all I can’t con[A]trol
[D]People who won’t [G]change
Though I [D]try to re[G]arrange
[D]Water off a [G]ducks back
I’ve [Em]got to let it [A]roll

Chorus
[C]Maybe they’ll [G]come a[D]round
[C]But then a[G]gain maybe [D]not
But [C]I’ll be o[G]kay
No [Em]matter what they [A]say
[G]I can only [A]change what I can [G]change [D]
