[Verse]

D                  D/F#
Got a call from an old friend
                G
We used to be real close
A                                   D
Said he couldn't go on the American way
                           D/F#
Closed the shop, sold the house
                        G
Bought a ticket to the West Coast
A
Now he gives them a stand-up routine in L.A.

[Chorus]

(chords same as verse)

I don't need you to worry for me cause I'm alright
I don't want you to tell me it's time to come home
I don't care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone


[Bridge]

Bm                                  F#7/A#
I never said you had to offer me a second chance
D                                Esus            E
I never said I was a victim of circumstance
G         D/F#   F#            Bm
I still belong,     don't get me wrong
E7+9
 And you can speak your mind
    G/A   A   G/A  A
But not   on  my   time


[Verse]

They will tell you you can't sleep
Alone in a strange place
Then they'll tell you you can't sleep with somebody else
But sooner or later you sleep
In your own space
Either way it's okay to wake up with yourself


[Chorus]

(chords same as verse)

I don't need you to worry for me cause I'm alright
I don't want you to tell me it's time to come home
I don't care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone


[Bridge]

Bm                                  F#7/A#
I never said you had to offer me a second chance
D                                Esus            E
I never said I was a victim of circumstance
G         D/F#   F#            Bm
I still belong,     don't get me wrong
E7+9
 And you can speak your mind
    G/A   A   G/A  A
But not   on  my   time


[Solo]  

D    D/F#    G    A    D


[Chorus]

I don't care what you say anymore, this is my life
Go ahead with your own life, and leave me alone
