[Verse 1]

    G                D             G               D
I want to kill this man, but he turned around and ran
      C              D              C         D
I'll kill him with karate that I learned in Japan
      G              D         G               D
He wouldn't see my face, I wouldn't leave a trace.
     C              D               C            D
I wouldn't use a bullet, cause a bullet's a disgrace.


[Chorus]

Em         Bm                Em                Bm
Aw, Mom I never thought that I was a murdering man
       C               G      C               G
But tonight I'm on my way, tonight I'm on my way


[Verse 2]

                G           D          G            D
There's this drawer that I know, in a house up the road
        C         D              C      D
That's full of things that are easily sold
           G         D           G               D
When they go out of town I could go and snoop around
      C          D              C             D
And make myself rich, off the things that I found


[Chorus]

Em         Bm                Em               Bm
Aw, Mom I never thought that I was a stealing man
       C               G      C               G
But tonight I'm on my way, tonight I'm on my way

[Verse 3]

         G              D         G              D
I was sitting on the bleacher, staring at the speaker
  C           D           C            D
Reading his lips, but I could not understand
       G           D          G              D
So I opened up my ears and clearly I could hear
        C       D         C                D
This detailed story all about a grain of sand


[Chorus]

Em          Bm              Em             Bm
Aw, Mom I always dreamt of being a good listener
      C               G      C               G
So tonight I'm on my way, tonight I'm on my way


[Verse 4]

              G             D         G                D
There's this kid you gotta meet, he lives across the street
          C          D           C          D
Hes got spirit and heart, we're ten years apart
       G         D             G            D
He is up for anything, he can hang with anyone
     C               D                  C         D
He still likes the things, we used to think were fun


[Chorus]

Em         Bm                Em               Bm
Aw, mom I never thought that I could have a friend
      C               G      C               G
But tonight I'm on my way, tonight I'm on my way
      C                G    C     (D, Riff)
Oh tonight, I'm on my way


[Verse 5]

         G            D              G            D
I'm in love with someone, who's as pretty as a flower
      C             D             C            D
Her life gives me power, so I'm buying her a ring
            G            D      G                D
She makes hats with her hands, she is such an artist
 C               D              C            D
I'm her biggest fan and I'm teaching her to sing


[Chorus]

Em         Bm                Em              Bm
Aw, Mom I never thought that I could love no one
       C               G      C               G
But tonight I'm on my way, tonight I'm on my way
         C               G       C     G
Ohhhh tonight I'm on my way.

It means to continue strumming it until the next chord. You can listen to Ben's recording to figure out the strumming or you can make it up on your own; it will probably sound good either way :)
