Hi!  So we're here again with the last single before the whole album 
comes out next week! *yay*  Don't let the Asus4's scare you away, 
they're easy to play!  A regular 'A' can be played though:)

  **One millionth update! lol!**  
    Taylor plays with no capo in the video and plays with a capo on 4
    when playing live.  IF you want to transpose this up or down 2 half         
    steps, go for it:) just click the transpose button above and move or
    lose the capo! Also I'm keeping the Asus4 in the chorus, but just play 
    an A if you want;)

   Bm [xx4432]-easier way
Asus4 [x02230]-or A regular 'A' [x02220] can be played.
 
   *Also, I use a really thin pick for this song, it makes it sound more 
    "Banjo-ish" lol:)

          A
And I can see you years from now in a bar
D               G            A
 Talkin' over a football game
(A)
With that same big loud opinion
D            G        A
But no one's listening
(A)
Washed up and ranting about the 
D* *once   A*       G*     
Same old   bitter   things
A                                 D* A*    G*  
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I  can't sing
-no chord         D    A  Bm  
But all you are is mean
G              D            A          Bm
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
    G                 D         A         Bm        G
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean


(*Palm mute first 2 lines*)
    D       Asus4   Bm                  G               
But someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D          Asus4            G      G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean,  yeah--ah
D       Asus4   Bm                      G                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(G)                   D
Why you gotta be so...Someday
Asus4   Bm                 G               
I'll be livin in a big ol' city (why ya gotta be so mean)
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (why ya gotta be so mean)
D       Asus4   Bm                      G                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me (why ya gotta be so mean)
    D* *once   Asus4*           G*
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   D*
Why you gotta be so  mean?

I think the G/E in the chorus could simply be a D. Let me know what ya think :) Sometimes I make it more difficult than it needs to be! It might take a few days for it to update.

I think it should be something like: D A Bm G for the verses

@Buzzle- I think you're right for the chorus. A4 or A can be used (preference I guess) but the Bm sounds a little better than the G/E or a D! And a G rather than D/F# is easier to get to from the Bm (for me anyways). I was very close though. The way I play the G/E is half of the way Bm is. G/E [020030] Bm [024430], that's why the sounds was almost right but not quite. I like the verses and think they're good as they are.
Thank you! I'll update and you'll get credit :)
