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