No one but themselves

Oh Now that your coffee's going cold

  You'll blow them all to the wall
Gm        G#
when they realize what
Bb          F       G
you've been working for
     Bb          F       G
What you've been working for

What you've been working for

the d-chord on the line "weight of the world over you" and the corresponding lines throughout the song should be Dm
other than that it sounds great!

Agree with mattman about the D chord. it should be Dm.
Also, the Em chord should be E instead.
Looks perfect otherwise.
