Chords used:

A (002220)

E (022100)

Eadd9? (022130)

Aadd? (577600)

Gadd? (355400)

Fadd? (133200)

To make this easier, I'll just call the last 3 chords up there A?,G?,and

F? and use p's for pauses.


Play this part 4 times. At the end, strum an open E chord instead of

playing the Eadd9.

Back to Intro. Play only 1st half, then back and forth between

G? and F? for 8 measures

3rd Chorus

End is 1st half of chorus, then F? till ending on E

That's It!! :)

1st Verse

I know a town where people are running

Away from life it seems always funny

They think they are smart, don't doubt what they say

Scared of a change, existing only to


Bring me down, bring me down, yeah!

Bring me down, bring me down

2nd Verse

Thoughtless in heart, desperate in honesty

Failed from the start, wasted and suffering

Supply them their drugs, just don't take them away

Scared of a change, existing only to


3rd Verse

I don't feel like I should even worry about you

But I take the time and you push me away

I don't care too much no more, I always seem to waste my breath

Go my own way.... YEAH!

Chorus (repeat till end)

Tehcnical stuff:

It may be easier (if your hands are big enough) to use your thumb

for the bass notes on the low string. Doing this gave me the idea that

if you don't play the bass note, all you have to do is slide an open E

chord back and forth, which is fine if you're playing in a band with a

bass. Have Fun :)!!
