CAPO 1



INTRO: A  Amaj7  A7   D   Dm   A   E   A 


VERSE 1:

A                  Amaj7
Ever since I was a kid at school
A7                   D
I messed around with all the rules
Dm               A                E                  A
Apologized then realized I'm not different after all
                           Amaj7         A7         D
Me and the boys thought we had it sussed Valentinos all of us
Dm                      A            E                        A
My dad said we looked ridiculous but boy we broke some hearts

VERSE 2:

                    Amaj7       A7               D
In and out of jobs running free wagin war with society
Dm                      A             E                    A
Dumb blank faces stare back at me but nothing ever changed
                     Amaj7             A7                      D
Promises made in the heat of the night creeping home before it got too light
Dm                  A                 E                   A
I wasted all that precious time and blamed it on the wine


CHORUS:

A          D E       A
I was only joking my dear (my dear)
              D      E        A
Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear)
             D E      A
What kind of fool was I (was I)
        E7
I could never win (never win)     

A|-0-2-4-2-0------|   (A x2)
E|-----------2-0--|


VERSE 3:

A              Amaj7     A7                    D
Never found a compromise collected lovers like butterflies
Dm                 A                     E                 A
Illusions of that grand first prize are slowly wearing thin
                   Amaj7      A7             D
Suzy baby you were good to me giving love unselfishly
Dm                       A
But you took it all too seriously
E                 A
I guess it had to end



CHORUS:

A          D E       A
I was only joking my dear (my dear)
              D      E        A
Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear)
             D    E   A
What kind of fool was I (was I)
        E7
I could never win (never win)     

A|-0-2-4-2-0------|   A x2
E|-----------2-0--|


INSTR: VERSE CHORDS THEN SOLO THAT ENDS ON E7 then:

A|-0-2-4-2-0------|   A x2
E|-----------2-0--|



VERSE 4:

A                 Amaj7       A7                         D
Now you ask me if I'm sincere that's the question that I always fear
Dm              A                   E                         A
Verse seven is never clear but I'll tell you what you want to hear
                  Amaj7        A7                          D
I try to give you all you want but giving love is not my strongest point
Dm                                A        E               A
If that's the case it's pointless going on I'd rather be alone
                     Amaj7         A7                   D
'Cause what I'm doin must be wrong pouring my heart out in a song
Dm                 A               E                  A
Owning up for prosperity for the whole damn world to see

OUTRO:
                    Amaj7       A7                        D
Quietly now while I turn a page Act one is over without costume change
    Dm                       A
The principal would like to leave the stage
     E                 A
The crowd don't understand
