Rosanne Cash – The Real Me

Intro – C – Am – F – G – 2x’s

(verse 1)

C Am G C
I don’t know what you feel no more when you look in my eyes,
C Am G Fm
I know I’m the same girl who walked out that door, but I’m brand new inside,
C Am G C
Maybe what I’m sayin’ ain’t true after all, I take it a minute at a time,
C Am F G
Maybe all I want is to hold you right now with no compromise,

(chorus)
Dm G C C/B Am
This is the real me, breakin’ down at last,
Dm G C C/B Am
Hey, it’s the real me, crawlin’ out of my past,
Dm G Dm G Am – G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,

(verse 2)
C Am G C
The numbness overcomes me now like alcohol and fear,
C Am G Fm
And I want to crawl inside you, baby, but I don’t want you near,
C Am G C
A woman’s her own mystery, not a shadow of her man,
C Am F G
But I’m not a queen inside a mirror no more, I’m not a guard to hold hand,

(chorus)
Dm G C C/B Am
This is the real me, breakin’ down at last,
Dm G C C/B Am
Hey, it’s the real me, crawlin’ out of my past,
Dm G Dm G Am – G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,

(bridge)
Dm G C C/B Am
Well, I’ve got no answers now, and I don’t expect them of you
Dm G F G
Thank God for second chances, baby, coz there’s something I can give to you,

(ending chorus)
Dm G C C/B Am
And it’s the real me, breakin’ down at last,
Dm G C C/B Am
Hey, it’s the real me, crawlin’ out of my past,
Dm G Dm G Am – G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,
Dm G Dm G Am – G
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad,
