G               Am     G             D          G
Go 'way from my window leave at your own chosen speed
G                     Am            G       D       G
I'm not the one you want, Babe, I'm not the one you need.
    G                 Am                 G             Am
You say you're looking for someone never weak but always strong
      G              Am               G              Am
To protect you and defend you whether you are right or wrong
    C                          D
Someone to open each and every door
             G
But it ain't me, Babe,
C       D            G
No, no, no, it ain't me, Babe,
         C         D       G
It ain't me you're looking for, Babe.


-same chord progression throughout the rest of the song-

Go lightly from the ledge, Babe, go lightly on the ground,
I'm not the one you want, Babe, I will only let you down.
You say you're looking for someone
who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you, someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you and more
But it ain't me, Babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, Babe,
It ain't me you're looking for, Babe.

Go melt back in the night, Babe,
everything inside is made of stone,
There's nothing in here moving and anyway I'm not alone
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call
a love of your life and nothing more
But it ain't me, Babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, Babe,
It ain't me you're looking for, Babe.

  1. To match the boom-chuck of the song, I strummed UDUD throughout.

    Please, please, please add the chords to the rest of the song! Please…please…please…please! I love this song and I want to teach my father how to play it, but he struggles without them. I wrote them down, but having the auto scroll work with it would be amazing!!!
