[Intro]

Em G Em G Em G Am C


[Verse 1]

Em                     G   
Jimmie takes his time as he washes his eyes 
Em                            G
and then makes his bed up and then heads for the outside. 
Em                                   G
And it doesn't make a difference every once and a while 
      Am                          C
if you've got nothing to do but sit around and think about 
Em                         G
how nothing he could do would ever feel good but he knows 

Em                   G 
you gotta get a job if you're looking to move on 
Em                     G
Like everybody else but it's the same thing 
         Am                      C
Always the same dream keeping him from moving, saying 


[Chorus]

Em                          G
I don't want to do nothin but be in a rock band 
Em                         G
I don't want to get a job, I don't want to be a man 
Em                          G
I don't want to do nothin but be in a rock band 
Am
I don't want to do nothing at all 
C                           
I don't want to do nothing at all 


[Verse 2]

   Em                          G  
But then the bills pour in and he fakes it like to swim, 
Em                              G
but he still don't go anywhere. 
         Em            G
Until he gets too weak, they got him swimming in his sleep 
Am                            C
And then he needs grab something to get some air.  
      Em                         G
And so he pulls a job down at the landfill, 
                      Em                     G
and he don't mind the working outside looking out on the turnpike. 
  Em                    G                               
But the days fly by and the fire in his side tells him 
Am                   C
he'll never be right until the day that he dies, saying 


[Chorus]

Em                        G
I don't want to do nothin but be in a rock band 
Em                          G
I don't want to get a job, I don't wanto be a man 
Em                        G
I don't want to do nothin but be in a rock band 
Am
I don't want to do nothing at all 
C
I don't want to do nothing at all 


[Instrumental]

Em G Em G Em G Am   C  


[Bridge]

D                                  C
All his words fall down through the cracks in between, 
D                                   C
and spread like sunlight down on the world underneath. 
D                                               C
But up here they fall to nowhere they're just a feeling he needs, 
       Am
as he drives through the weeds, 
           C
and through the swamps and through the trees, 


[Verse 3]

Em                                 G
As he's talking like he's holding a gun in his hand, 
      Em                           G
but there aint nobody there, it's just him waving his hands. 
     Em                          G
And then he drives on to his guy at the van to get his 
Am                         C
cup of coffee with three sugars for two dollars. 
Em                G
And back to work another day another hour, 
  Em                               G
he gets older by the minute but there's nobody around him 
Em                                G                    
who can understand, looking at a young man feeling  
     Am                             C
like no one ever notices, they live the same day over and over 


[Chorus]

Em                            G
No, I don't want to do nothin but be in a rock band 
Em                        G
I don't want to get a job, I don't wanto be a man 
Em                        G
I don't want to do nothin but be in a rock band 
Am
I don't want to do nothing at all 
C
I don't want to do nothing at all
