You should know, compared to people on a global scale

Our kind has had it relatively easy

At Christmastime when folks go off the deep end

His woman took the kids and he took Klonopin

Remember him when he was still a proud man
                                A    Bm
A vandal's smile, a baseball in his right hand

Nothing but the blue sky in his eyes

Still, compared to those a stones-throw away from you,

Watch that lucky man walk to work again

See him walking home again to sleep alone
    D                           A              (Asus4)
I step into a shop to buy a postcard for a girl

I broke the law boys,
D D      D2  D2  D4   D  D2          G (G5)
shooting out the windows of my loft, boys

When they picked me up, I made a big noise
D D  D2 D2    D4    D D2       G (G2)     A
Everything to blame except my mind

Bm        A               G              F#m
I should say, I keep your picture with me every day
    Em               F#m         G     A
The evenings now are relatively easy
Bm             A                 G                  F#m
And here with you there's always something to look forward to
    Em                   F#m      G
My lonely heart beats relatively easy
    Em                   F#m      G         G
My lonely heart beats relatively easy

I originally wrote the chords for this song in standard tuning. After watching a couple YouTube videos of Jason playing this song live, I realized he plays it in drop D tuning. If you don't want to retune your guitar, you can just play it in standard tuning, using the same chords above. Enjoy!

I would play the G2 chord as 540030 (easier finger and also what he appears to do live).
