Info:
"What Do I Know?" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. It was included on his third studio album ÷ (2017). Despite his father telling him not to publicly speak about controversial topics, "What Do I Know?" is Ed’s passive way of aligning himself with those who want to change the world peacefully.

Verse 1: @0:00
A        A   A   G     F   F   D     F      D A
Ain't got a soapbox I can stand upon
           F       F    D  C     F
But God gave me a stage
D   C   F       D     G
A guitar and a song
G       A C2  C2  D2      A        G     F      F   F      A
My daddy told me, "Son, don't you get involved
A  A..A  G     F F   F      D C      F    F          C
In politics, religions, other peoples' quarrels."

Pre-chorus 1: @0:17
D2    D2   C2   C2 A     A   G    G    F      A
I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene,
A     A      D2 D2 C2     C2   A       A     G     G         F    F       F
I know when I have children, they will know what it means
F         F   F2 F2     E2      E2    D2  D2C2     C2A  A   A
And I'll pass on these things my family's given to me
A        D2  D2   C2 A     A    G     FDFFF
Just love and understanding positivity

Chorus 1: @0:32

We could change this whole world with a piano
C     D     F        D     C F         D  C     F     F   D A   C2 A
Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
D2  C2 D2  A    G   F    F      F       A
I'm just a boy with a one-man show
C     DF D C F 
No university
D      C   F      D     A        A
No degree, but Lord knows
F2E2D2C2    D2 C2     C2   A C2 C2C2      C2
Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
C2    C2    D2    C2 D2     A    G      F     D      F   F  A
And the stock market crashing and their portfolios
A         D2 D2 C2 D2   A       G  F     F      F  F     A
While I'll be sitting here with a song that I wrote
A            C2      A           A      A       G    F  D    F    C
Saying love could change the world in a moment
A         A    A  G    F
But what do I know?

Love can change the world in a moment

Verse 2: @1:23
C       AA  A    A      G   F      F  D    F   F    F  A
The revolution's coming, it's a minute away
A   A    A# A      A     G    G    F        F      F C
I saw people marching in the streets today
C2        C2   A   A       G     G  F    F     F       A
You know we are made up of love and hate
A       A#  A      A     G    G      F     F D   A F       F
But both of them are balanced on a razor blade

Pre-chorus 2: @1:40
D2    D2  C2   C2  A     A   G   G    F        A
I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene

I know, I'm all for people following their dreams
F       F   F2 F2  E2  E2 D2  D2     C2   C2  A  A     A      A
Just re-remember life  is more than fitting in your jeans
