D#                                               G#        D#
Well I know you hate my drinkin'  And the way I talk some-times
         A#                                D#                                         
But you hate it most when I don't call at night
          D#                                               G# 
And it's just because you love me And you worry about your man
            D#   G#  D#       A#   D# 
You do the best you can with who I am


CHORUS:
              G#                    D#
Burnin' both ends of a candle Can leave one in the dark
       G#                             D#             A#  
And I know what I put you through is hard upon your heart
          G#                                      D#             G#
And it's just that you're concerned for me Sweet-heart I under-stand
            D#  G#   D#      A#    D#  
You do the best you can with who I am


D#                                          G#      D#
You go to church on Sunday While I'm still home in bed
  A#                             D#
Sleepin' off the night I had be-fore
          D#                                                  G# 
And some-times you say I'm perfect And sometimes not worth a damn
            D#  G#   D#      A#    D#  G#   
You do the best you can with who I am

Chorus

ENDING:
            D#   G#  D#       A#   D#
You do the best you can with who I am
