Let Me Be  The Turtles

"Let Me Be"
(P.F. Sloan)
D A D6 E (2X; 12-string enters 2nd time)
[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/]  
Verse 1:
Pl[D]ease don't mist[E]ake me [D]or try to m[E]ake me
The sh[D]adow of a[E]nybody e[A]lse
[D]I ain't the h[E]im or h[D]er you think I [E]am
I'm just t[D]rying h[E]ard to be mys[A]elf
Though soc[E]iety's goal is to be p[A]art of the whole
That may so[D]und good to you, not to [E]me
Let me [A]be, let me be
To t[D]hink like I w[E]ant to
Let me [A]be, let me be
That's a[D]ll I ask [E]of you
D C#m Bm (1,2: repeat intro 3: to coda)
I am what I am and that's all I ever can be
Verse 2:
Don't try to plan me or understand me
I can't stand to be understood
I could never give in to or ever live up to
Being like you think I should
I've got some inner need that I'm tryin' to heed
I can't take hand-me-down destiny
(repeat chorus)
Verse 3:
Don't try to change me or rearrange me
To satisfy the selfishness in you
I'm not a piece of clay to mold to your moves each day
And I'm not a pawn to be told how to move
I'm sorry I ain't the fool you thought would play by your rules
A to-each-is-own philosophy
(repeat chorus)
I said that's a[D]ll I e[E]ver can [A]be (repeat to fade)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
