Intro: C

Verse:
C           G  F
So now I am older
Em              F
Than my mother and father
Em              Dm
When they had their daughter
    G              F         G  G7
Now what does that say about me?
   C           G     F
Oh how could I dream of
Em                  F
Such a selfless and true love
Em             Dm
Could I wash my hands of?
G           F       G  G7
Just lookin out for me

Chorus:
   F          Em      Dm Dsus2
Oh man what I used to be
   F   Em Dm F  G  G7
Oh man oh my oh me
   F          Em      Dm Dsus2
Oh man what I used to be
   F   Em Dm F  G  G7
Oh man oh my oh me

Verse -same as first-:
In dirth or in excess
Both the slave and the empress
Will return to the dirt I guess
Naked as when they came
I wonder if I'll see
Any faces above me
Or just cracks in the ceiling
Nobody else to blame

Chorus:
   F          Em      Dm Dsus2
Oh man what I used to be
   F   Em Dm F  G  G7
Oh man oh my oh me
   F          Em      Dm Dsus2
Oh man what I used to be
   F   Em Dm F  G  G7
Oh man oh my oh me

Verse -same as first-:
Gold teeth and gold jewelry
Every piece of your dowry
Throw them into the tomb with me
Bury them with my name
Unless I have someday
Ran my wandering
In my underwaaaa

Interlude:
Em Dm
aaaay
G F G G7
ooooo

Outro:
   F          Em      Dm -hold-
Oh man what I used to be
     F    Em     Dm Dsus2
Montezuma to tripoli
   F   Em Dm F  G
Oh man oh my oh me
