  VERSE I

Bb     Dm         Gm          Dm
Nobody ever had a dream round here
    Bb             Gm             Dm          Gm
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
Bb     Dm             Gm          Dm
Nobody ever pulls the seams round here,
    Bb             Gm             Dm          Gm
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me


  PRE-CHORUS

F             Gm       C        Bb
I've got this energy beneath my feet
     Eb             F              Dm          Eb
Like something underground's gonna come up and carry me,
F             Gm          C          Bb
I've got this sentimental heart that beats
    Eb             F              Dm          Eb
But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me
F  
Now


  CHORUS

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

      Gm              Dm*
But I know that I can make it
           Eb       F        A#5
As long as somebody takes me home
      Bm      Cm    Cm7   D*
Every now and then


  BRIDGE

         Bb            Dm       Gm
Have you ever seen the lights?
         Bb            Dm       Gm
Have you ever seen the lights?


  VERSE II

Bb       Dm           Gm        Dm
I took a shuttle on a shockwave ride
      Bb            Gm           Dm          Gm
Where people on the pen pull the trigger for accolades
Bb        Dm          G        Dm
I took a bullet and I looked inside
    Bb                 Gm       Dm       Gm
And running through my veins an American masquerade


  PRE-CHORUS

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


  CHORUS

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

      Gm              Dm*
But I know that I can make it
           Eb       F        A#5
As long as somebody takes me home
      Bm      Cm  
Every now and then
              C5    D5
Every now and then
              Eb5   F5
Every now and then


  OUTRO

         Bb  Dm   Gm Dm   D#  Eb   Dm    F
You know I   see  London, I   see  Sam's Town
Bb     Dm  Gm    Dm   D#     Eb  Dm    F
Holds  my  hand  and  let's  my  hair  down
Bb     Dm    Gm     Dm     D#   Eb  Dm   F
Rolls  that  world  right  off  my  shoulder
Bb Dm   Gm Dm   Eb  D#   Eb     Dm   
I  see  London, I   see  Sam's  Town 
F
