SONGS FOR CHANGE: What The Hell Can I Really Do


What The Hell Can I Really Do by Bruce Campbell (2013) capo 1 INTRO: Am var T123

Am C G

From the age of fifteen to twenty-three, Looked for a job in the big city

G Am Am var

Had a couple for a while but they always end, Still good to have that extra money to spend

Am C G

Moved back home every once in a while, Dad’s going crazy but mum still smiles

G Am Am var

Throw our dole cheques on the table together, Plan a day of partying, yeah that’ll feel better

CHORUS 1:

F C G F Am G

Back in the old days so they say, there was work for everyone every day

F C G F Am G Am var

But the city is a mean, mangy, hungry beast, it’ll laugh as you starve watching it feast

Am C G

Every now and then daddy gets real mad, Says he’s not treated like a man

G Am Am var

Steals a car or a bottle of rum, Goes to jail for a while or goes on the run

Am C G

I ain’t been to jail yet but probably will, the way the cards fall along our street

G Am Am var

If I’m lucky I’ll share a cell, with my dear old man, we can both go to hell

CHORUS 2:

F C G F Am G

Back in the old days so they say, There was work for everyone every day

Am Em Am Em

Growing food or cutting trees, Build a home for your family

F C G F Am G

But the city is a thieving, selfish, hungry beast, It’ll laugh as you starve watching it feast

Am Em F C G

The chosen ones ride high on its back, The rest of us just fight for the scraps

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

Am C G

I’d like to see Jessica again if I could, and my daughter too, yeah that’d be real good

G Am Am var

I shouldn’t have hurt her but I felt so wild, the way she treated that little child

Am C G

Heard they’re living way across town in a squat with some drunks sounds like she’s really down

G Am Am var

I worry ‘bout them now and then, that’s the truth, but what the hell can I really do

REPEAT CHORUS 1 & 2 then INSTRUMENTAL HALF VERSE

Am C G

I worry ‘bout me now and then, that’s the truth, but what the hell can I really do x 2 +Am var

Am

What the hell can I really do Am var x 4
