TITLE: Different Drum
Lyrics and Chords

You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Oh, can't you tell by the way I run
Every time you make eyes at me, wo-oh
You cry and moan and say it will work out
But honey child I've got my doubts
You can't see the forest for the trees

/ C Em F G C Em / F G C Em / F G C Em F G / 
   / 1st / 2nd / F - G - - - /

Oh, don't get me wrong it's not that I knock it
It's just that I'm not in the market
For a girl who wants to love only me
Yes and I ain't saying you ain't pretty
All I'm sayin's I'm not ready
For any person, place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

/ F - - - / G - - - / F - G - C - C7 - /
   / F - G - / C Em F C / D7 - - - / Dm7 - - - G7 - - - /

So goodbye, I'll be leavin', I see no sense
In this cryin' and grievin'
We'll both live a lot longer if you live without me
