#Here's a rough interpretation of this song for guitar. If anybody wants,
#feel free to embellish/correct. Happy riffing.

#My Life


#Intro/Fill/Outro: D-Bm-Am-C9-Ebmaj7-Bb
Got a call from an old friend we'd used to be real close
Said he couldn't go on the American way
Closed the shop, sold the house, bought a ticket to the west coast
A D (Fill)
Now he gives them a stand-up routine in L.A.
I don't need you to worry for me cause I'm allright
I don't want you to tell me it's time to come home
I don't care what you say anymore this is my life
Go ahead with your own life leave me alone
I never said you had to offer me a second chance
I never said I was a victim of circumstance
I still belong
Don't get me wrong
And you can speak your mind
But not on my time
They will tell you you can't sleep alone in a strange place
Then they'll tell you can't sleep with somebody else
Ah but sooner or later you sleep in your own space
Either way it's O.K. you wake up with yourself
