What I Can Change By Jeff Gilpin


October 13, 2012


Capo 1




Verse 1


[D]I can’t change the [G]weather


[D]Change things that [G]never


[D]Come under my [G]sphere


Of [Em]influ[A]ence


[D]I can’t change the [G]minds


Of [D]all those un[G]kind


[D]People who’re


[G]Filled [Em]with re[A]sent




Chorus


[C]But I can [G]control my [D]mind


[C]And make the [G]world a better [D]place


And [C]I can put be[G]hind


[Em]All the things I [A]find


[G]I [A]have no way to [D]change [A]




Verse 2


[D]I can change some [G]things


My [D]actions can take [G]wings


Af[D]fect my little [G]world


With [Em]slight alte[A]rations


[D]All those things I [G]know


Are [D]under my [G]control



[D]Steady their [G]course


[Em]Smooth conster[A]nations




Chorus


[C]But I can’t con[G]trol the [D]sun


[C]Or slow the [G]turning of the [D]world


And [C]I can’t change your [G]mine


If it [Em]turns out I [A]find


[G]You don’t [A]want it to [D]change [A]




Verse 3


[D]The hardest thing for [G]me


[D]Living in this socie[G]ty


[D]Is to let [G]go


Of [Em]all I can’t con[A]trol


[D]People who won’t [G]change


Though I [D]try to re[G]arrange


[D]Water off a [G]ducks back


I’ve [Em]got to let it [A]roll




Chorus


[C]Maybe they’ll [G]come a[D]round


[C]But then a[G]gain maybe [D]not


But [C]I’ll be o[G]kay


No [Em]matter what they [A]say


[G]I can only [A]change what I can [G]change [D]
