Intro: G C Em D G

G                      C
 I've been a waiter, a roofer, a clerk 
      D                     G
 I've shovelled manure till my pride hurt
      G                             C
 When you're starting out, it's all part of the work 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do

G                     C
 I've been evicted for not making rent 
      D                        G
 Made my Daddy wonder where my good sense went
         G                    C
 For the price of a dream, my years have been spent 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do

Chorus:

C                            D
 So I stand here tonight with this six string guitar 
       G                     C
 To be something I've always been in my heart
 C                      D
 Just for the chance to play you my song 
     G                      C
 The thrill when I hear you singing along
           Am         C               D
 It's been worth everything I've been through 
              G
 To do what I do

G                    C
 I've played for empty tables and chairs 
     D                             G
 The drunks that don't listen, the crowds that don't care
 G                                       C
 Been told countless times Boy you ain't goin' nowhere 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do

Chorus:

C                    D
 So I hope the critics and sceptics alike
 G                      C
 All bought a ticket to this show tonight
     C                          D
 And they'll see firsthand that I have survived 
     G                     C
 And what doesn't kill you makes you more alive
         Am         C         D
 And I'm one of the fortunate few 
              G
 To do what I do



G                        C
 There's so much joy this music can bring 
    D                           G
 So I count my blessings when I step up to sing
               G                        C
 Cause they're so many people who would give anything 
Em     D      G
 To do what I do
 
     C           D
 And I thank you
                 G
 I can do what I do

About the artist behind To Do What I Do Chords:

Alan Eugene Jackson (born 17 October 1958 in Newnan, Georgia) is an American country singer-songwriter who has sold over 40 million records. He was influenced by the new traditional country of the 1980s, and he was one of the most popular country singers of the 1990s, blending both honky tonk and mainstream country sounds and penning many of his own hits. His success continued into the 2000s and his music became increasingly counterposed with that of more mainstream country acts that were moving toward a more pop music sound. He is the recipient and nominee of multiple awards. He was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
