I think he tunes down to a different key because I can’t get the
EXACT sound (open strings) but these chords will allow you to play
Along with the mp3.

Capo 3

I met a good friend a long time ago
I could make it to the cooler shade
But I ended up burying myself alive
To prove that I could use a spade
I could be the next, I could be the first
A few people even know my name
I'm a big league hitter with a hell of a glove
         D                   A
But they never put me in the game

    G  A               Bm 
But I-I-I'm gonna be alright
   G       A      D 
If I leave here tonight

And I told a good friend a long time ago
I was gonna make it to the Hall of Fame
But she left me for a Hollywood movie star
She liked the way he spelled his name
I could be the best, I could be the worst
But I'm gonna tell you one thing's for sure
To those who fight for a life that's a special flavor
the shelter can never know


Bm               G
Mmmmmmmmmm, oohhhooohhh
Bm                                        G
I try to find a little humor everywhere I go
Bm          G   
Mmmmmmmmmm, hey-hey
E7                                             A
A little humor is the only thing that keeps me sane

Oh and I begged my poor mom a long time ago
Not to hate me for the choice I made
And a minute in the sun's no price to pay
For a second in the cooler shade
I could be the one but I'm on the run
So don't come a knockin' on my door
I'll be swingin in a hammock strung 'tween the trees
Well I did it and I told you so

Closing Chorus:
Bm             G
I'm gonna be alright
Bm             G
I'm gonna be alright
G  A               Bm
I-I-I'm gonna be alright
   G       A      D
If I leave here tonight
