  VERSE I

A      C#m        F#m         C#m
Nobody ever had a dream round here
    A              F#m            C#m         F#m
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
A      C#m            F#m         C#m
Nobody ever pulls the seams round here
    A              F#m            C#m         F#m
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me


  PRE-CHORUS

E             F#m      B        A 
I've got this energy beneath my feet
     D              E              C#m         D
Like something underground's gonna come up and carry me,
E             F#m         B          A 
I've got this sentimental heart that beats
    D              E              C#m         D
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
E    C#
Now


  CHORUS

C#                  F#m
Why do you waste my time?
       Dbm           D        E       A 
Is the answer to the question on your mind
        F#m            Db
And I'm sick of all my judges
    D        E            Db
So scared of what they'll find

      F#m             Dbm
But I know that I can make it
           D        E        A5
As long as somebody takes me home
      A#m     Bm    Bm7   Db
Every now and then


  BRIDGE

         A             C#m      F#m
Have you ever seen the lights?
         A             C#m      F#m
Have you ever seen the lights?


  VERSE II

A        C#m          F#m       C#m
I took a shuttle on a shockwave ride
      A             F#m          Dbm         F#m
Where people on the pen pull the trigger for accolades
A        C#m          F#m      C#m
I took a bullet and i looked inside
     A                  F#m       D       F#m
And  running through my veins an American masquerade


  PRE-CHORUS

E         F#m            B       A
I still remember grandma Dixie's wake
  D            E        C#m       D
I never really known anybody that died before
E             F#m         B        A
Red white and blue upon a birthday cake
    D              E           C#m         D
my brother, he was born on the fourth of July
           E    C#
And that's all


  CHORUS

C#                  F#m
Why do you waste my time?
       Dbm           D        E       A
Is the answer to the question on your mind
        F#m            Db
And I'm sick of all my judges
    D        E            Db
So scared of what they'll find

      F#m             Dbm
But I know that I can make it
           D        E        A5
As long as somebody takes me home
      G#m     F#m   A#m*
Every now and then
              B5    C#5
Every now and then
              D5    E5
Every now and then


  OUTRO

         A C#m F#m C#m  D     C#m   E
You know I see Lon-don, I see Sam's Town
A     C#m F#m  C#m D        C#m  E
Holds my  hand and let's my hair down
A     C#m  F#m   C#m   D      C#m  E
Rolls that world right off my shoulder
A C#m F#m C#m  D     C#m   E   
I see Lon-don, I see Sam's Town
