Verse:
Gbm               A             E
    I pack my bags & say goodbye to my wife
                        D
For what seems like the millionth time.
Gbm                    D                Gbm
    They said it gets easier, but they lied.
              A              E                       D
She looks at me & says "really baby, I will be just fine,"

But then she looks away so I don't have to see her cry. 
    Gbm      E      A     D  
And that is when I ask myself;

Chorus:
Gbm       E               D
How am I   supposed to be  everything they expect me to
Gbm             E        D
Be when I feel so alone,  Cause I left my heart at home.
Gbm        E               D
    She needs me, but I know they need me too.
   Gbm               E            D                        Gbm
So God, give me the strength to do what you created me to do.

Verse:
Gbm              A                  E
    Really I'm so thankful for the people I meet,
                           D
The places I've been & the things I've seen,
         Gbm                        D                       Gbm
But when she's not here it doesn't feel like I'm living my dream.
             A                 E
I know they say that no one is perfect, 
                              D
But I swear she's perfect for me
                          Gbm  
And that makes it so much harder to leave.

Chorus:
Gbm       E               D
How am I   supposed to be  everything they expect me to
Gbm             E        D
Be when I feel so alone,  Cause I left my heart at home.
Gbm        E               D
    She needs me, but I know they need me too.
   Gbm               E            D                        Gbm
So God, give me the strength to do what you created me to do.

Bridge:
Gbm            E           A                 Bm   -Db-
    If you miss me, I'm just a phone call away.
          Gbm         E           A     Bm   -Db-
Please be strong, be strong for me.  


Gbm                  E              A                   Bm   -Db-
    I need you to show me how to change the inside of me.
       Gbm               E         A         Bm     E    
For my heart, for their sake, Be strong, be strong for me!


Gbm           A              E
    How am I   supposed to be everything they expect
      D              Gbm  
Me to be when I feel so alone, so alone!

Chorus:
Gbm       E               D
How am I   supposed to be  everything they expect me to
Gbm             E        D
Be when I feel so alone,  Cause I left my heart at home.
Gbm        E               D
    She needs me, but I know they need me too.
   Gbm               E            D                        Gbm
So God, give me the strength to do what you created me to do.

  1. i suggest going down 2 half steps and using a capo on the second fret, it makes it sound more like the original

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
