Sort of like America's "Sister Goldenhair," but more rock. [intro:] D Am G D (G) D Am G D [verse 1] D Am G D i've gathered up my sailing gear and headed out to sea D Am G A thought i'd take the three hour tour to find the real me Bm E7 G D with one hand i'm drilling through the bottom of my boat Bm E7 the other swings a bucket A bailing hard to stay afloat [chorus 1] G oh-oh, you Em could be my best friend D by the weekend F#aug5no3 i'll be rid of the last one G who Em tried to change me D what a nerve, he said A i'm my own best enemy [intro to verse 2] [verse 2] the bridge was not yet burning 'til you made it to the scene and saw me with a matchbook and a can of gasoline you cautioned me against it told me i should think it through now we're choking on the ashes man, you can't tell me what to do [chorus 2] oh-oh, hey I think you like me i'm the big cheese i'm the life of the party hey where you going? who are you to say i'm my own best enemy [intro] [solo:] Bm Em G D Bm Em A [verse 3: quiet] you told me you were weary when i called you up for help i'm sorry, but i did not want to do it by myself [verse 3: rock] and why should i say thank you? did you give it all you had? you left me disappointed guess there's no use getting mad [chorus 3 (double length)] G oh-oh, hey Em what are friends for? D they're a resource F#aug5no3 there to use when you need them G aw Em ain't it funny D A they don't stick around too long G whoa-oh-oh, you Em said you were true blue D what did i do F#aug5no3 now you're changing your story G just Em like the others D a conspiracy A "i'm my own best enemy" [intro: ritard, hold/end on 1 of bar 8]
