@SONG I Can't Be Your Hero Today
By: Jimmy Buffett 

(See below for explanation of chord symbols)

[Intro:  D@ D+ D* D   D@ D+ D* D+ D* D]

     D                         G
It's never been the same since you returned from dreamin'
          A                          D
With your nursery rhyme excuses your picture postcards gleamin'
        Bm                                G
Tellin' everyone who looks your way 'bout people and their sinnin'
          E                                 A
While you left field verse is fallin' in proportion to your winnin' 
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/buffett_jimmy/i_cant_be_your_hero_crd.html ]
      D             D*     D+ D*
And I can't be your hero today
    D                D*               A
I'm through with the simple games you play
   G                  D              E           A
It just may take some time for me to even up the score
      G             A                 D
But I can't be your soldier home from war
And there you sit shouting that there's still hope for us 
While nature holds the handcuffs on a Capricorn and Taurus 
There's nothing you can do or say to get me to your camp 
Go fill up all your savings books and buy yourself a lamp 
And I can't be your hero today 
Your wholesale price is much to high to pay 
A bargain basement atmosphere is no way to sell love 
And I can't be your Superman above 

[interlude: play intro chords]

No I can't be your hero today
That is all I really want to say
   G                               A
Go find a leading man who wants to play
      G             A      D
And I can't be your hero today

[repeat and fade: D D D+ D* D+   DD D+ D* D+ D]
