about

America has basically become a country governed by the elite. I wrote this song after watching one of the presidential debates and coming to the realization that our candidates are totally out of touch with middle and lower class values.

Only Yourself

INTRO-(D - bm, D - bm, G - C#dim7-D-gm-A7, D - bm, D - bm, G - C#dim7, D-----)

D bm
You've got your money...you've got your friends
D bm
You think your world... will never end
G c#d7 D.....gm--A7
But you're just foolin'.....you're only foolin'.....only yourself

D bm
You think your place...is guaranteed
D bm
That you can buy...all that you need
G c#d7 D.....D7
But you're just foolin'.....you're only foolin'.....only yourself

G gm
Now you've got health...and you've got gold
D B7
But everything...it must grow old
em7 emb5 em7 -- A7
And what you're doin'.....is only foolin'.....only yourself

D bm
Where is your love...and sympathy
D bm
There's so much more...that you could be
G c#d7 D.....
But now you're foolin'.....you're only foolin'.....only yourself


(D - bm, D - bm, G - C#dim7-D- gm-A7, D - bm, D - bm, G - C#dim7, D----)

D bm
You're not a world......unto yourself
D bm
Someday you'll need...somebody else
G c#d7 D--D7--
But you're just foolin'.....you're only foolin'.....only yourself

G gm
You think you get...what you deserve
D B7
But life' not s graded ...on some curve
em7 emb5 em7 --A7
And what you're doin'.....is only foolin'....only yourself

D bm
Where is your love...and sympathy
D bm
There's so much more...that you could be
G c#d7 D.....B7
But now you're foolin'.....you're only foolin'.....only yourself
em7 c#d7 D...G...D
But now you're foolin'.....you're only foolin'.....only yourself
