As Cool as I Am  Dar Williams

Ask if you want chord fingering help.
C G/B Am F x2 C
Yea, there [G/B]was a time I d[Am]idn't like the l[F]ove, I liked the cl[C]imbers,
I was no b[G/B]rother then, I was r[Am]unning out of t[F]ime and one li[Am]ners[-],
And [C]I was afraid, [G/B]like you are when you're [Am]too young to k[F]now the time, and[C]
So I wa[G/B]tched the way you t[Am]ake your fear and h[F]oard the hor[C]izon,
You point, you h[G/B]ave a word for e[Am]very woman y[F]ou can lay your e[Am]yes[-] on,
Like you [G]own them just because you bought the t[Em]ime,
F NC
And you turn to me, you say you hope I'm not threatened,
Oh,[C] I'm not that p[G]etty, as cool as I a[C]m, I thought you'd [G/B]know this alr[Am]eady,[F]
C G/B Am F C F (C G/B Am F) x2
I will not be afraid of women, I will not be afraid of women.
[C]So now we're [G/B]at a club, you wa[Am]tch the woman d[F]ancing, she is dr[C]unk,
She is s[G/B]miling and she's f[Am]alling in a sl[F]ow, descending f[Am]unk,[-]
And t[C]he whole bar is [G/B]loud and proud and ev[Am]erybody's tr[F]ying, yeah.[C]
You play the a[G/B]rtist, saying, "[Am]Is it how she mo[F]ves, or how she lo[C]oks?"
I say, it's l[G/B]oneliness sus[Am]pended to our o[F]wn like grappling h[Am]ook[-]s,
And as lo[G]ng as she's got noise, she's f[Em]ine.
F NC
But I could teach her how I learned to dance when the music's ended,
Oh,[C] and that's not p[G]etty, as cool as I a[C]m, I thought you'd [G/B]know this alr[Am]eady,[F]
C G/B Am F C F (C G/B Am F) x2
I will not be afraid of women, I will not be afraid of women.
You tried to m[C]ake me d[G/B]oubt, to m[Am]ake me gu[F]ess, tried to m[C]ake me [G/B]feel like a l[Am]ittle le[F]ss,
Oh, I l[C]ike'd you [G/B]when your [Am]soul was b[F]ared, I th[C]ought you k[G/B]new how [Am]to be sc[F]ared,
And now it's am[G]azing what you did to make me s[Em]tay,
But tr[F]uth is just like time, it catches up and it just keeps going,
[C]And so I'm l[G/B]eaving, you can f[Am]ind out how much b[F]etter things can g[C]et,
And if it h[G/B]elps, I'd say I f[Am]eel a little w[F]orse than I did when we [Am]met,[-]
So wh[C]en you find s[G/B]omeone else, you can [Am]try again, it might w[F]ork next time,[C]
You look out [G/B]of the kitchen w[Am]indow and you sh[F]ake your head and say l[C]ow,
"If I could b[G/B]elieve that s[Am]tuff, I'd s[F]ay that woman has a h[Am]alo[-],"
And I lo[G]ok out and say, "Yeah, she's really bl[Em]onde,"
F NC
And then I go outside to join the others, I am the others,
Oh,[C] and that's not ea[G]sy, I don't know wha[C]t you saw, I want s[G/B]omebody who s[Am]ees me[F],
C G/B Am F C F (C G/B Am F) x2 C
I will not be afraid of women, I will not be afraid of women.
