OK Plateau

VERSE
C
Well at last it has paid off
C
You've mastered the art
F
Of the world that once was closed to you
F
You've become a part

You put in the thousand of hours
Had the determination and drive
The sacrifices were worth it
Cos finally you've arrived

G                            G7
At the summit... but no no no... it's just

CHORUS
F                                   C
The OK Plateau, oh oh oh
F                             C
The OK Plateau, no no no

VERSE
As you've woken with awareness
And see a dusty world
But everyone's so friendly
They say settle down

But you've put in so much hard work
And you know you've more than them
So you redouble your efforts
To be better than these men

And reach the summit, but no no no.... you're stuck on

CHORUS

MIDDLE
Am
The plateau is so seductive
F
It sure offers a lot
Em
Regular folk look up to you
F
Wishing they had what you've got

So few can tell the difference
Between the great and merely good
And perhaps if you drink hard enough
G
Even you've misunderstood

F
And slowly slow

G                               G7
You can it let go.... soon all you know, know, know, is

CHORUS

Not as bad I used to be

(Cheesy country song for someone else)

VERSE
C
I know I get a little rowdy sometimes
Am
Have a few too many drinks
F                               C
And then I embarrass you

Shooting my mouth off
Tell it like it is
That’s just what I do

BRIDGE
C                                                Am
In your heart I know that you see
I’m not as bad I used to be

CHORUS
F
Take me as I am, do the best you can
G
Take home your man

VERSE
I know I make work
Leave a careless mess
I leave behind me only debris and stains

And I often forget to be kind
Don’t have your presence of mind
With a careless word I too often cause you pain

BRIDGE
But you know lately I’ve been more hit than miss
Remember I’ve done much worse than this

CHORUS

MIDDLE
So remember all the bad times
And how you got upset
Now they are just

BRIDGE
Everybody else can see
My friends are much worse than me

CHORUS
