No matter what you do, no matter where I am
1. C Bb It isn't easy to settle down Ab Bb C When you see that there's a party going on C Bb Feel like you're stuck in a little town Ab Bb C When tomorrow the whole world could be gone
Bb C No matter what I do I get the feeling Bb C No matter what you do I got my doubt Bb No matter where I am I'm on the Ab Bb C outside looking in
2. C Bb It isn't easy to contemplate Ab Bb C When you're used to runnilng 'round and being free C Bb And even though I know you're really great Ab Bb C There's so many fine fish in the sea
3. C Bb It isn't easy to purify Ab Bb C When your life is just a terrible bore C Bb I'm not so easy to satisfy Ab Bb C I ask you, is there anything more?
4. C Bb It isn't easy to close your eyes Ab Bb C When you're gonna go for that instead of this C Bb It isn't easy to do your thing Ab Bb C When you think of all the things you're gonna miss
5. C Bb It isn't easy to do it all Ab Bb C It wouldn't even help if I were cloned C Bb It isn't easy laying down your pipe Ab Bb C When everybody wants to get you stoned
6. C Bb It isn't easy to give up booze Ab Bb C Even when it starts to do you harm C Bb When the city's waiting up the road, Ab Bb C How ya gonna keep yourself down on the farm?
7. C Bb It isn't easy to not eat pork Ab Bb C When you smell the bacon frying in the pan C Bb And even though you know I love New York New York Ab Bb C I'm basically an Oklahoma man
