"What We Worked For"
Against Me!
from the Crime As Forgiven By...  EP

For the most part, the chord changes are correct, I mean
he says it's a three chord song to begin with.


C	G	F	C


C
Lost the confidence to write a song
		    G 
So I found three simple chords

And held them together with my weak voice
	         F
On an out of tune guitar
			C
My father gave to me


		G
And may Elvis turn in his grave
			           F		          C
And Les Paul curse my dirty calloused fingers
		    G	   
And may the likes of this song never make

One fucking dollar
			   F   
Leave it for a demo tape
            			C
To be played until it's broken
					  G
And remembered only for what it was


 			    F
Though we gave 'em hell
			    C
Though we gave 'em hell
			    G
Though we gave 'em hell
(2x)


C					      G
To my friends and enemies who could have been anything
	      F
Titans and heroes who found survival in cause and effect
		  C
Behind counters

Behind windows
	        G
Striving just

			F
To be people with bitter ideals of justice
	      G						    F           C
Do we only need to keep working because it pays rent?
	    G
Sleeping under plastic stars glued to the ceiling
		    F				C
Muscles burning alcohol and nicotine
		  	G
Every morning


		          F
But we gave 'em hell
		          C
But we gave 'em hell
		          G
But we gave 'em hell
(2x)


                C
There's a height beyond skyscrapers
	    G				     F
There's a distance beyond the freeway
  	      C			       G
More than pictures in a magazine
			 F
More than tragedy in a rock and roll song
		G
It's more than actions you know are safe to make
		F			C
It's more than money could ever buy


  	 G
Are we living to work and die in American cities?
	F			 C
And working to live and die in American cities,
         G				   F	C	G (let ring)
And dying for what we worked.
