I Could Never Be That Man  Blue Rodeo

Intro: x2
[F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [D] [G]  
[G]I've got my reasons for h[C]olding back,
[F]Can't give my trust too f[G]ast
[G]I've pulled myself out of the w[C]reck too many times
[F]To think that words can [G]last
[D]You need someone to [A]help you when you're down
[C]Pick you like a [D]pearl from the [G]sand
[D]Somebody who's [A]devoted to you
[C]Right beside you [D]when you take a [G]stan[D/F#]d[Em]
[C]I could never [D]be that [F]man.[C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [D] [G]
[G]You have a special shrine[C] in your room
[F]Pictures of lovers on t[G]he wall
[G]I loved to lie there and look i[C]nto their eyes,
[F]So confident before you [G]let them fall
***Chorus 2***
[G]Will you tell me please h[C]ow to get them off their knees,
[F]Twirling 'round you fast a[G]s they can,
[G]How did you know that it w[C]orried me so,
[F]Not the ones who fall, b[G]ut the ones who stand
I could never be that man.
[G]I still remember that t[C]ime in my life
[F]When I was sinking s[G]o low.
[G]You stayed with me all through t[C]he night
[F]And sang me some songs [G]you know.
***Chorus 3***
[D]Now as time goes on, I [A]wonder what went wrong,
[C]Didn't I fit in[D]to your [G]little plan
[D]Couldn't I be the one you [A]lay your troubles on,
[C]Walk you to the [D]edge and hold you [G]han[D/F#]d,[Em]
[C]Pick you like a [D]pearl from the [G]san[D/F#]d,[Em]
[C]Open every [D]doorway that I [G]can[D/F#],[Em]
[C]I could never [D]be that [G]man[D/F#].[Em] [D] [C] [D] [G] [C] [D] [G] [C] [D] [G]
