I just want to be happy again

I don't want to be wasted, I don't want to be blind

I don't want to be wasted, I don't want to be blind

I don't want to be wasted, I don't want to be blind

Oh I don't want to be blind

No I don't want to be blind

 

Suggestion by Brett Paragow (Bretparago@aol.com)

On your site, you have the intro to Otis Redding listed as being off of a G

barre chord. I disagree and am fairly sure its the same rhythmic strumming

pattern on the same strings but rather played off of an open chord G.
