INTRO: D/G/A/Bm/D/G/A/G/D

D                                          G
I never was a straight lace, straight-A student
           A                D
Teacher's pet or child prodigy
                                   G
I wasn't gonna get rich throwin' a football
               A             G        D
It'd take too long to get a law degree
                             G
So I sat down with mama and daddy
                         A                 Em
They tried to talk some sense into my big head
         D                 G                    A              G      D
But the best advice that I ever got was from my sister's rock star boyfriend

CHORUS:
      A       G            D
Just get your guitar and learn how to play
 A            G     D
Cut up some jeans, come up with a name
             A            G             Bm        G
When you're living in a world that you don't understand
        D              A
Find a few good buddies
                D       A D             D/G/A/Bm/D/G/A/G/D
Start a band, start a band, start a band

D                                          G
And all those girls that were too cool to talk to 
             A                      Bm
They'll be waitin' in the line out back 
                D                         G
Might get your picture in your hometown paper 
                A         G      D
Maybe buy your mama that Cadillac

CHORUS:
D     A        G          D
Just get your guitar and learn how to play 
A            G      D
Cut up some jeans, come up with a name
              A           G             Bm         G
When you're livin' in a world that you don't understand
        D
Find a few good buddies
A                         D                G
Start a band, start a band scrape up some money 
          A       D         G    A 
Buy a van, learn free bird and ramblin' man 
       Bm          G        A/D/G/A/Bm/D/G/A/Bm/D/G/D/Bm/G/D/A/G/Bm/A
Never buy another beer again 

QUIETER:
      A        G          D
Just get your guitar and learn how to play
 A             G     D
Grow out your hair, come up with a name
        A             G                   Bm   D      D(draw the D out until
With a little bit of luck you'll be packin' the stands             it stops)

LOUD AGAIN:
                          A       D
Find a few good buddies, start a band
                   A       D
No need to study, start a band
              G             A          D
Call up some buddies, man, start a band

OUTRO: D/G/A/Bm/D/G/A  G-D          (REPEAT 'TIL END)
