This is Green Day's cover of John Lennon's Working Class Hero.

There is a capo version under the un capoed tab so don't leave comments of how there should be a capo.

Lyrics:
As soon as youre born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if your clever and they despise a fool
Till youre so fucking crazy you cant follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you cant really function youre so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
And you think youre so clever and classless and free
But youre still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Theres room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must how to smile as you kill
But if you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
(lennon track)
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
Just follow me
