"BE WHAT YOU ARE" (with chords)

Capo: 3rd fret

Verse 1

(G) The sunflower ain't no (E7) daisy,

And the (A) melon ain't no rose.

Why (D) are some people crazy

'Bout (G) bein' someone (D#) else they (D) know?

Just (G) stick to the place you're (E7) planted

And (A) do the best you know:

Be a (D) sunflower or a daisy,

A (G) melon (C) or a (G) rose.

Verse 2

(B7) Don't be what you aren't,

(E7) Just be what you are:

If you're (A) meant to be a candle,

Then don't (D) try to be a star.

(B7) If you are just a little tadpole,

Don't you (E7) try to be a frog;

(A) If you're only the tail,

Don't (D) try to wag the dog.

Verse 3

(G) 'Cause when a man is what he (E7) shouldn't,

Then he (A) is not what he should.

And as (D) sure as I am singin'

He'll (G) never be (D#) all that he (D) could.

So just (G) stick to the place you're (E7) planted

And (A) do the best you know:

Be a (D) sunflower or a daisy,

A (G) melon (C) or a (G) rose.

Verse 4

(B7) Pass around the offering plate

If you (E7) can't exhort & preach;

And (A) if you're a little pebble

Don't (D) try to be the beach.

Repeat Verse 3
