Lyrics

I’ve Already Won

Am G
I’ve worked hard all my life
C C/B Am
Wondering what’s next to come
G
But the future’s looking like a knife
C C/B Am
And I don’t wanna run

Am G
I’ve got a mean and desperate wife
C C/B Am
She’s taking me for a ride
G
She’s up and left me all alone
C C/B Am
For another lonely life

G
But it’s all right
Am
I’ve already won
C G
I’ve got a thousand reasons why
Am
She don’t owe me none

G
Oh it’s all right
Am
I’ve already won
C G
I’ve got a thousand reasons why
Am
She don’t owe me none

I see the church lines form
I see the schoolgirl uniforms
I hand the homeless man a dime
As I slip into the bar

I’ve seen the fates of crime
And all my friends are doing time
I said the world don’t owe me anything
On that I can rely

G
But it’s all right
Am
I’ve already won
C G
I’ve got a thousand reasons why
Am
She don’t owe me none

G
Oh it’s all right
Am
I’ve already won
C G
I’ve got a thousand reasons why
Am
She don’t owe me none

SOLO OVER VERSE

Am G
I’ve worked hard all my life
C C/B Am
Wondering what’s next to come
G
But the future’s looking like a knife
C C/B Am
And I don’t wanna run


G
But it’s all right
Am
I’ve already won
C G
I’ve got a thousand reasons why
Am
She don’t owe me none

G
Oh it’s all right
Am
I’ve already won
C G
I’ve got a thousand reasons why
Am
She don’t owe me none
