Kris Oz figured out the chords but did not have time to type, post, and
upload (public atta girl for Kris). I volunteered. All errors are probably
mine. Hope the formatting works.
I am not by Melissa Ferrick
I am not

Capo at the 3rd Fret
G, D, G, D, etc.
C, Em7, C, Em7, Em
C, Em7, C, Em7, Em
I am not sm[G]ooth and I am n[D]ot soft
and I am not [G]angry or me[D]an
I'm just a little shut of[G]f
Shut off like the an[D]swer no
[G]or like the way water ne[D]ver holds
and I want to [G]be better than I a[D]m
Oh yes and I want to nee[G]d nothing but your hand[D]s
'Cause mine are so w[G]eak
Oh but my b[C]ody it wants t[Em7]o move in[C]
It wants to m[Em7]ove in
And your [Em]ankles are so strong
I have see you [C]kick when you [Em7]swim
You kick[C] when you [Em7]swim
This t[Em]ime I know this time that I know
That I am not[D] wrong yeah
But you know so dry and cracked my heart is set back
Yeah just like the moon
When it's a sliver resting on its back
and I will not say
Just exactly how I feel
Before the answers have yet to be revealed
Oh when my body it wants to move in
it wants to move in
And your ankles are so strong
I have seen you kick when you swim
You kick it when you swim
this time that I know well this time that I know
That I am not wrong
But you know patience is stronger than any kiss
And do how I wonder
If we're ever gonna make it
Are we ever gonna make it
