[E]I've got wounds from [C#m]love

[E]I know [C#m]I am not a [A]pretender
[E]I'm hol[C#m]ding out, a [A]happy [E]ender

verse

I've got blue collar blood flowing through my veins
for that I am proud, I am never ashamed
I've been bruised and battered
I've challenged my rivals
I've learned what matters
is the fight for survival
But I've got to keep on keeping on.
