If I Were You(Chords)

Gibson Brothers

Key: C
verse 1 
           C 
If I were you 
         F             G               C 
I would gladly loan to me a dollar or two 
           G                                          C 
So I could eat and maybe get just one good night of sleep 

But I'm not 
                C 
And I'm stranded like a castaway in this town 
                  F                 G                 F 
And you seem so unwilling to help a fellow when he's down 
           C  G 
If I were you 
                C 
That's what I'd do 

EVERYONE FROM HERE: 

verse 2 
           C 
If I were you 
            F              G                       C 
I wouldn't be out on the streets the whole night through 
           G                                             C 
I'd have a job, and a pretty wife that I could come home to 

But I don't 
       F           G               C 
And I have twenty cents left to my name 
              F             G                    F 
And your the only one left here, that I have to blame 
           C  G 
If I were you 
                C 
That's what I'd do 

Bridge 
             F              G                  C 
You see Itīs not my way to take from you, the things I haven't earned 
   F               G                  C 
I wish I could go back and heed, the lessons I have learned 


verse 3 

But I canīt 
           F               G             C 
So you'll gladly put your money in this sack 
        F                    G           C                F 
And yes sir, this things is loaded and I have the hammer back 
           C  G 
If I were you 
                C  F 
Thatīs what I'd do 
           C  G 
If I were you 
                C 
Thatīs what I'd do 

The End
