           G                           D
There's a place in the world for the angry young man
         Am7                         D
With his working class ties and his radical plans
     G                   D
He refuses to bend, he refuses to crawl,
         Am7                        D  
And He's always at home with his back to the wall.
          F            G/B           C
And he's proud of his scars and the battles he's lost,
       G/B             A           D 
And he struggles and bleeds as he hangs on his cross-
       G                         D         Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C F C
And he likes to be known as the angry young man.

LEAD IN: Cmaj7  D  G/B  C  Am7  G/B  C

        G                    D
Give a moment or two to the angry young man,
         Am7                       D 
With his foot in his mouth and his heart in his hand.
          G                                D
He's been stabbed in the back, he's been misunderstood,
       Am7                    D
It's a comfort to know his intentions are good.
       F          G/B         C
And he sits in a room with a lock on the door,
         G/B          A            D
With his maps and his medals laid out on the floor
        G                        D          Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C
And he likes to be known as the angry young man.

F              Gm7
I believe I've passed the age
  Bb                 C
Of consciousness and righteous rage
  F                   Bb
I found that just surviving 
      C             D  
was a noble fight.
 G                 Am7
I once believed in causes too,
  C                D
I had my pointless point of view,
    G/B             C                   A           
And life went on no matter who was wrong or right. 
D
Oh.

            G                       D 
And there's always a place for the angry young man,
         Am7                       D
With his fist in the air and his head in the sand.
         G                    D 
And he's never been able to learn from mistakes,
      Am7                       D
So he can't understand why his heart always breaks.
         F        G/B          C
And his honor is pure and his courage as well,
         G/B            A             D 
And he's fair and he's true and he's boring as hell-
          G                     D         Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C   
And he'll go to the grave as an angry old man.


Instrumental: F  Gm7  Bb  C  F  Bb  C   D  G  Am7  C  D  G/B  C  A  D
(listen for timing)

        G                      D
There's always a place for the angry young man
         Am7                         D
With his working class ties and his radical plans
     G                   D
He refuses to bend, he refuses to crawl,
          Am7                     D
And He's always at home with his back to the wall.
          F            G/B           C  
And he's proud of his scars and the battles he's lost,
       G/B           A              D
And he struggles and bleeds as he hangs on his cross-
        G                        D          Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C F C  
And he likes to be known as the angry young man.


CODA: Cmaj7  D  G/B  C  Am7  G/B  C  F  C
     
      Cmaj7  D  G/B  C  Am7  G/B  C(let ring)


extra notes: On the "man" parts, the chord switch is pretty quick.
