What I Got by Sublime – Lyrics with Chords

[Verse 1]
D            G
Early in the mornin'
D             G
Risin' to the street
D                G
Light me up that cigarette and I'll
D                 G
strap shoes on my feet
 
D                G
Got to find the reason
D                   G
Reason things went wrong
D               G
Got to find the reason
       D           G
why my money's all gone
 
D           G
I got a dalmatian
D                G
I can still get high
D              G
I can play the guitar
       D             G
Like a motherfuckin' riot

[Verse 2]
D
Life is too short
    G
So love the one you got
           D
Cause you might get run over
         G
or you might get shot
 
D
Never start static
         G
I just get it off my chest
D
Never had to battle with my
G
bulletproof vest 
 
D
Take a small example 
        G
Take a tip from me
D
Take all of your money
     G
Give it up to charity
 
      D
Love is what I got 
     G
Is with in my reach
     D
the sub rock styles
         G
dealt straight from Long Beach

It come back to you 
              G
You're gonna get what you deserve
D
Try'n test that 
       G
Your bound to get served
 
D
Love's what I got
       G
Don't start a riot
        D
You'll feel it when
                 G
the dance get's hot
 
[Chorus]
D         G

[Verse 3]
D
I don't cry 
      G                 D
When my dog runs away
 
Don't get angry
           G
Bout the bills I have to pay
 
D
Don't get angry
         G
when my mom smokes pot
D
Hits the bottle 
        G
and goes right to the rock
 
D
Fuck it, fight it
G
It's all the same
   D
Livin with Louey Dog's 
          G
The only way to stay sane
 
D
Let the lovin' 
G                   D             G
Let the lovin come back to me

Love is
        D
What I got
        G
I said remember that
D         G
Love is 
        D
What I got
       G
Now remember that
 
D         G
Love is
        D
What I got
        G
I said remember that
D         G

What I got
       G
Now remember that
