Song: The Man That I've Been
Album: Cory Morrow Live - Double Exposure
Artist: Cory Morrow
Transcribed by: Matt Evans
Intro: E
Verse 1: E A E A
I spent my last two birthdays in the Travis County Jail
[E]Tomorrow I go [A]up for life but I [E]should go straight to [B7]hell
[B7]Hell's got no more room for me and [A]it's got no more t[E]ime
[A]I should be conf[B7]essin' all my [E]crimes
[E]Four years ago my [A]debt was piled [E]high upon my [A]mind
[E]And I devised a [A]plan to rob a [E]bank just to surv[B7]ive
[B7]Oh, but when the gunsmoke cleared
I sa[A]w two bodies on [E]the ground
[A]Thirteen hours [B7]later I was f[E]ound
Chorus: B A E
Don't you feel any sorrow for the man that I've been
'Cause in the [B]waking of tomorrow
They[A] will find me fu[E]ll of sin
I got [A]news for [E]you, I ain't as [B]bad as they [E]say
I got [A]news for [E]you it looks like,
[B]That just don't [A]matter tod[E]ay
Instru: E A E B7 E
Verse 2: E A E A
Well the verdict came and right away, "Guilty Indeed"
[E]A 99 to [A]life is what I [B7]heard that jury
Well, they thought they might impress upon me
[A]Crime it does not [E]pay
[A]I ain't one for [B7]listenin' t[E]oday
[E]As the years go by and [A]by upon a [E]shadowed ground I [A]walk
[E]The people and the [A]places of my [E]past have now been [B7]lost
The man that I've been is not the [A]man I'd hoped to [E]be
Now [A]it's too late to [B7]find the good in [E]me
Chorus: (2X)
Ending: E B A E
Ah, looks like it just don't matter today
Outro: E A E
 ----------------- Note: To get the same effect in the

Chords intro as Cory does, you must

E A B7 B G string of E chord to alternate
E 0 X X 5 between E and Em. Also in Chorus
A 2 0 2 7 you can use all Barre chords in
D 2 2 1 7 addition to using the B barre
