[Intro]
G          G/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy
Em         Em/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy
G          G/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy
Em         Em/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy


[Verse 1]
  C                       Em
Snakes are biting at my heels
                    C              D
The worries that refuse to let us go
C                     Em
I'll be kicking them away
                    C                D
When hoping not to let them take control


[Pre-Chorus]
C               Em
Ooouh, I'm not ready
  C         Bm
Drink to escape their minds
  C         Em
Show me distraction
C         Bm       
Even for just one night


[Chorus]
            G     G/B    C    G
Cause it's easier  to   bu - ry
Em          Em/B  C       G
my head in  the  sand sometimes
           G     G/B    C    G
Yes, it's easier  to   bu - ry
Em          Em/B  C       G
my head in  the  sand sometimes
       Em         
And I know, I know, I know
     Em/B     C           G
it's not the right way to go
       Em                            Em/B  C  G
but I pray for the ground to swallow  me  whole

G          G/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy
Em         Em/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy


[Verse 2]
 C                           Em
Now, these days are feeling dark
                    C                D
We're sruggling to figure out last year
  C                    Em
When the women on the news
                         C               D
Keep saying things that no one wants to hear


[Pre-Chorus]
C               Em
Ooouh, I'm not ready
  C        Bm
Drink to escape our minds
C           Em
Show me distraction
C         Bm       
Even for just one night


[Chorus]
          G     G/B    C    G
Cuz it's easier  to   bu - ry
Em          Em/B  C       G
my head in  the  sand sometimes
           G     G/B    C    G
Yes, it's easier  to   bu - ry
Em          Em/B  C       G
my head in  the  sand sometimes
       Em         
And I know, I know, I know
     Em/B     C           G
it's not the right way to go
       Em                            Em/B  C  G
but I pray for the ground to swallow  me  whole
        Em                            Em/B  C  G
Yes, I pray for the ground to swallow  me  whole

G          G/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy
Em         Em/B  C    G
Ooouh, I'm not rea - dy


[Bridge]
G             G/B  C           G         Em 
(Come on, boys.      Let's go tear this place apart!
Em/B  C         G
    (Woah! Aoow! Hahaha)

G
  Cus I know life is simple when I can just ignore it all
       G
Cus I know, cus I know, cus I know life is simple when I can just ignore it all

G
If I'm not ready
  G
Snakes will consume me whole
G
 If I'm not steady
 G
Maybe they'll take control


[Chorus]
          G     G/B    C    G
But it's easier  to   bu - ry
Em          Em/B  C       G
my head in  the  sand sometimes
           G     G/B    C    G
Yes, it's easier  to   bu - ry
Em          Em/B  C       G
my head in  the  sand sometimes
       Em         
And I know, I know, I know
     Em/B     C           G
it's not the right way to go
       Em                            Em/B  C  G
but I pray for the ground to swallow  me  whole
        Em         
Yes, I know, I know, I know
     Em/B     C           G
it's not the right way to go
       Em                            Em/B  C  G
but I pray for the ground to swallow  me  whole

I know this is chords but i've got a few lyric changes for the verses that i can hear...

Verse 1
Snakes are biting my heels
They follow through the grass
I'll keep kicking them away
What if my resolve just can not last (resolve in this sense mean determination)

Verse 2
Now the sky is getting dark
Can't you hear the thunder start to roar
So i'll be picking up the pace
Block out things i'd rather just not know
