WHAT I DESERVE (Kelly Willis & Gary Louris)
-------------------------------------------

C(9)          Am7(4)       F6           G
  Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na naaa na
C(9)          Am7(4)       F6           G
  Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na naaa na

  C              F              G            G
What I deserve is comfort for my shaken soul
          C           F                    G       G
Yeah the water on my hands are tears from long ago
F                C   Dm7                  Am
My skin lets it in;   it's always been too thin
      Am            G - Gsus4   G
Since I can't remember when

           C(9)            Am7(4)          F6       G
And ohhh what I deserve, what I deserve, what I deserve, oh darling
  C(9)            Am7(4)          F6      G
What I deserve, what I deserve, what I deserve

There's solace in this dusty earth and rocky hills
Yeah, but even starry skies can't mend my broken will
My blood doesn't pour; there's nothing to bleed for
I don't believe anymore

And ohhh what I deserve, what I deserve, what I deserve, oh darling
What I deserve, what I deserve, what I deserve

    Am         Am           F   F
Now I have done the best I can
       Am            Am            F       G
Oh but what I've done is not who I am; and oh what I deserve....

[Guitar solo: 8 bars, same chords as one chorus]

Now, time has left me feeling old and losing hope
Well hell, I've walked a long way just to find the end of my rope
You say that I should pray; well I would, but my faith has strayed
I don't believe I'll be saved

And ohhh what I deserve, what I deserve, what I deserve, oh darling
What I deserve, what I deserve, what I deserve
Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na naaa na
Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na naaa na

[Instrumental: same chords as one chorus, end on C.]
