[Verse 1]

Sometimes I
  C                          G           Am  
Don't see it so clear when everything I need

And know's right beneath my nose hairs, sometimes I
 C                           G       Am                                  F 
Know that this showbiz will make me blow and let go, eyes closed and I don't see it
          C                       G             Am  
Let the rollercoaster take me, going close to crazy
 
Maybe I should call it if it's all a broken daydream
       C                          G              Am       
Like peace and solidity, please, are you kidding me?
                                     F 
What, me? Couldn't give up all the free **** I didn't need
C                               G  
I'm grateful to say you gave me a stage
     Am  
Maybe I was made for more than slavin' cradle to grave
            C                              G 
Without a space to escape would've wasted away
          Am                        F  
Chasing a ray of sunshine upon the rainiest day (Oh, yeah)
    Dm               Em                    F          G  Am 
A smarter man would quit this while he's sane, been addicted
        Dm            Em           F       G  Am
To the pain of living in the game for so long.....
      Dm           Em             F      G   Am   
Like every bar I wrote from the cage, if I could
      Dm         Em        F 
Walk away I'd already be gone (Oh, woo-ooh-ooh)
 
[Chorus]
                 C 
What, and quit show business?
 G           Am       F 
What kind of low is this?
                       C                              G  
They say do what you love and you'll never work a day or a night
                Am                    F  
Feel like I've been working my whole life
                C  
What, and quit show business?
G             Am      F 
What kind of low is this?
                       C                               G 
They say do what you love and you'll never work a day or a night
                Am               F          
Feel like I've been working my whole life, and the horns go

[Post-Chorus]
C         G 
Ba ba ba da ba ba
   Am  
Ba da ba ba da ba
   C        G  
Ba ba da ba ba da
         Am          F  
Ba ba ba da ba ba ba ba

[Verse 2]

You’ll never hear me
      C                         G 
Complain so don’t get me wrong, I
            Am  
Love what I do, I do, I do, twenty years since
        C  
Ain't changed though, been here so long
 G                  Am            F  
I’m married to the game, I do, I do (So wassup then?)
       C                      G 
Well, nowadays fans have too much access
       Am  
To the point, I had a man come to my address
         C                       G 
To the point, I hid a bat under my mattress
        Am                         F 
To the point, I had to lance this rancid abscess
       C                  G  
This business is tied to our phones
     Am  
And this just keeps us tied to our phone
          C                               G  
And I’m tired of my phone so I’m retiring my phone
    Am                       F 
And all the sickness that resides in my phone, look

(Woah woah oh oh)
 Dm           Em            F          G   Am
Don’t get me wrong, son, I love to connect.....

(Woah woah oh oh)
            Dm          Em                  F            G   Am
But I just wanna write songs, they want to come for my neck.....

(Woah woah oh oh)
      Dm            Em       F       G  Am    
And I got a young family I gotta protect.....
 
(Woah woah oh oh)
         Dm         Em           F 
So I'ma disconnect love and respect

[Chorus]
                 C 
What, and quit show business?
 G           Am       F 
What kind of low is this?
                       C                              G  
They say do what you love and you'll never work a day or a night
                Am                    F  
Feel like I've been working my whole life
                C  
What, and quit show business?
G             Am      F 
What kind of low is this?
                       C                               G 
They say do what you love and you'll never work a day or a night
                Am               F          
Feel like I've been working my whole life, and the horns go

[Post-Chorus]
C         G 
Ba ba ba da ba ba
   Am  
Ba da ba ba da ba
   C        G  
Ba ba da ba ba da
         Am          F  
Ba ba ba da ba ba ba ba

[Bridge]
     C 
And I don't know
  G     Am        F
Where I go from here
       C 
The lights, the shows
  G               Am         F
They're things I both hold dear
     C           G 
And I don't know-oh
       Am         F  
Where I go from here, haha
      C                                G  
The lights and the shows and the bars and the fights
             Am             F        
Is all I've known my whole life

[Chorus]
                 C 
What, and quit show business?
 G           Am        F   
What kind of low is this?
                       C                               G 
They say do what you love and you'll never work a day or a night
                Am                     F  
Feel like I've been working my whole life
                 C  
What, and quit show business?
 G           Am       F 
What kind of low is this?
                      C                                G    
They say do what you love and you'll never work a day or a night
                Am                     F  
Feel like I've been working my whole life, and the horns go

[Outro]
C        
Ba ba ba da ba ba
