Verse (1) (I think he plays barred Chords)
=====================================
I'm patient of this[G] plan
As humble as I [F]can
I'll wait another [G]day
Before I turn [Dm]away
But know this much is [G]true
No matter what I [Cm]do
Offend in every [F]way
I don't know what to [G]say
Chorus (1)
===========
Pretty similar to the Intro but with slight variations

Verse (2)
============
I'm coming through the [G]door
But they're expecting [F]more
Of an interesting [G]man
sometimes I think I [Dm]can
But how much can I [G]fake
I'll speak until I [Cm]brake
With every word I [F]say
Offend in every [G]way
Chorus (2)

Verse (3)
==========
You tell me to re[G]lax
and listen to these [F]facts
That everyone's my [G]friend
And will be till the [Dm]end
But I know this much is [G]true
No matter what I [Cm]do
No matter what I [F]say
Offend in every [G]way
Outro (a little bit more picking at the end)
