Itís kind of how I play it, and the tab is really rough around the edges.

It opens playing with a D or D5 kinda arpeggio (play around with it)x5

D

Its no big deal

but the clocks won't stop beating

just get old quick

            G

that's your lot goodbye

                          D

its not a lot goodbye I'm gone goodbye

            G

that's your lot goodbye

                          A            D

its not a lot goodbye I'm gone goodbye

D

I don't much try

I don't even do my best to try

and my god don't much try to care

     G

if I choose to get high

     D   

if I choose to get high

       G

and my god don't much try to care

      A

if I choose to get high

Ho Ho Ho Holding up yeah holding up again

Woe Woe is now but if you want woe is then

you've gotta leave a lot leave a lot again but don't leave it all to me

but what what I want not what I want to need

          G                                D   

from the one that shoulda mattered shoulda mattered to me

         G                                           A

until I held it up I left a lot of chance I gave my thought away for free

 

next bit repeats

E5   A5 G5

E5   C5 A5

 

we could of been uncharted on ruin

we could of got a bit weird on our own

sending messages out to the strangers

who tried to infringe on our binging own life

so if you want a part of me

there's a roll in commentary

we've got it endorsed with a lifetime guarantee

if you hang on long enough you'll see a

scuffle on the street tonight

      E5    A5

its a treat

        E5   A5

and its free

        E5

and its free free free free free free free

D

??should've bought our own??

                       G

could've grown our own memories there

          A

??but the goats of produce??

             D

??but Iíve eliminated crime??

D

could've worked hard

                       G

could've got something going there

         A

could've raised a few hopes

             D

and could've had a good time
