The chord progressions to this song are:

        G, D, C, D

        G, Em, C, D

        G, D, C, D*


*Note: This D is done by doing an open C chord and then moving it up two frets which is sort of a D chord with open G and open high E string notes. I guess this would make the chord technically a Dsus4add9 (the sus4 is the G note and the add9 is the E note).


G†††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

I donít like no 'lectric guitar, I like the way that my acoustic sounds

†††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†† †††††††††††††††††††C††††††††††††††††††† D

And Iím gonna charge ten bucks a show the way they do uptown


G†††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Iím not here to mess with your head - I donít wear no spandex, day glow tights

G††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† D

All I needís a fast, free cold beer and Iíll sing this shit all night

G††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

My music may be drivel but I got nothin' better to do

††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Than to sit here until Iím arrested and sing these stupid songs for you


G††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††† ††††††††C††††††††††††††† D

I donít make much sense but I never really try

†††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

I like sittin' in the middle of my merry go round

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††† G

Watchin' the world go by and by and by

G†††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††† D

If Iím walkin' by your front yard I might think itís pretty neat

††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††† †††D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† D

You got plastic covers for all your trees and your grass is all concrete

G††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††† D

You paint it pretty colors but you still wake up with fear

†††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† D

That the pretty colors might fade away in a hundred thousand years

G†††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† D

You can beat your mama but you cannot hurt her soul

††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

The two of you are stuck together and she ainít never gonna let you go


G†††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††† †††††††††††††††D

In the distant future, when your time is long since past

††††† G††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

My spirit will be laughin' as the farmerís plow cuts across your ass

And my friend the farmer, when he dies his work is done

††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Donít fear the thunder, let the lightning light your way

†††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††† C†††††††† D†††††††† G
