Again, from memory and I'm bored at work.

I should probably sit down and actually confirm these chords as I play them. 
I'm quite sure what's in my head is right, but sometimes the alcohol isn't 
enough :)

I wrote a song a while back...I guess it's similar in some ways. But the 
song is called "Hand Me Down".

Remember to capo on the 5th fret and thumb the second fret on the low E when 
you see the (D) chords. I love this tune, man. Ken

If I Were You 

Capo 5

(G)If I were you, then (C)I would gladly
(D/F#)loan to me a (G)dollar or two
So I could (D/F#)eat, and (C)maybe get
Just (DD/F#)one good night of (G)sleep
But I'm not, and I'm (C)stranded
Like a (D/F#)castaway in this (G)town
And (C)you seem so (D/F#)unwilling
To help a (G)fellow when he's (C)down
If I were (G)you, (D/F#)that's what I'd (G)do

(G)If I were you, (C)I wouldn't be out (D)on these streets
(G)The whole night through
Yeah, I'd have a (D/F#)job and a (C)pretty wife
That (D/F#)I could come home (G)to
But I don't, and (C)I have twenty (D/F#)cents
Left to my (G)name
And (C)you're the only (D/F#)one left here
(G)That I have to (C)blame
If I were (G)you, (D/F#)That's what I'd (G)do

(G)Sir, it's (C)not like me to (D/F#)take from you
(G)Things I haven't earned
(C)I wish I could go (D/F#)back
And need the (G)lessons (D/F#)I have (G)learned

But I can't, so you'll (C)gladly
Put your (D/F#)money in this (G)sack
Yes (C)Sir, this thing is (D/F#)loaded
And I (G)have the hammer (C)back
If I were (G)you, (D/F#)that's what I'd (G)do
(C)If I were (G)you, (D/F#)that's what to do
