Cadd9 |032033|
D     |X00323|

The notes on the G,D,B and high E strings are a bit improvised throughout the sone, and even strummed at 
times.

The bass line is pretty constant.  This is a basis for the main acoustic.

INTRO:

  I  (once)                 II (three times)

G5                          G5 
Hey there, weird kid in your high-top shoes
               Cadd9                   Cadd9
Sitting in the back of the class; I was just like you
G5              G5
Always left out, never fit in
Cadd9           Cadd9
Owning that path you're walking in

   (Use flat picking from part II of intro)

Mr. Misunderstood  
G5                                       G5
Now, your buddies get their rocks off on Top 40 radio
        Cadd9                    Cadd9
But you love your daddy's vinyl, old-time rock and roll
G5              G5
Elvis Costello, Ray Wylie Hubbard, 
    Cadd9                Cadd9
and think Jeff Tweedy is one bad mother

Chorus

D                               D
One day you'll lead the charge, you'll lead the band
Cadd9            G5
Guitar Hero with lightning hands
        D                                    D
And the girls will like your tattoos and the veins in your arms
           Cadd9                    G5
They'll be helpless to your musical charms
G5                            Cadd9
And they'll all hold up their hands
G5                    Cadd9
And they'll all wanna dance
G5           Cadd9
Mr. Misunderstood

Verse  (strum)
G5               Cadd9                G5          Cadd9
First time I met Alabama Hannah, I was skinny as a rail
G5                   Cadd9                  G5                      Cadd9  
Red hair tied up in a blue bandanna; she was hotter than the devil's Hell
G5                 Cadd9               G5                   Cadd9
She turned me on to Back Porch Pickers, Jackson Pollock, and gin
G5               Cadd9                     G5                     Cadd9
Her daddy didn't trust my intentions, so he turned to his daddy's old .410
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood 
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood 

Chorus 

D                      D
Had an ax to grind, so off I went
Cadd9                     G5
Mad at the sun for coming up again
D                D                     
I lost religion, found my soul in the blues
Cadd9                   G5
Rubbed the velvet off my blue suede shoes
G5                            Cadd9
Yeah, everybody held up their hands
G5                             Cadd9
And every soul on Beale Street danced
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood 
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood 

Verse  

G5                      Cadd9                       
So I went with it like a colt on my Plymouth   
           G5                    Cadd9        
Through the glass behind my rear-view
Gmaj                Cadd9                  Gmaj     Cadd9
Took a left when the world went right down 16th Avenue
G5                    Cadd9                           
Played with fire and I played on ledges
G5                              Cadd9                  
Every circus, stage, and county fair
G5                         Cadd9                G5               Cadd9
I tried to file my points, sand my edges, and I just grew out my hair
G5           Cadd9
Mr. Misunderstood 
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood 
 
Chorus
                 
D                         D                           
They're standing in line, chasing the buzz                    
        Cadd9                       G5
Til the next big things and already was
D                          D
And hell if they know what they're trying to find
      Cadd9                          G5
If it ain't that same old, been-done kind
Gmaj                            Cadd9
Yeah, gives the head-scratchers fits
Gmaj                           Cadd9
Wondering how in the hell they missed
G5           Cadd9
Mr. Misunderstood 
G5           Cadd9
Mr. Misunderstood 

Verse 

G5                          G5
Hey there, weird kid in your high-top shoes
               Cadd9                   Cadd9
Sitting in the back of the class; I was just like you
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood, I understand
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood, I understand
G5           Cadd9
Mr. Misunderstood, I understand 
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood, I understand
G5           Cadd9 
Mr. Misunderstood, I understand
G5           Cadd9
Mr. Misunderstood, Let's get outta here

G5            Cadd9         G5            Cadd9
Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na,    I understand
G5            Cadd9         G5            Cadd9
Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na,    I understand
G5            Cadd9         G5            Cadd9
Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na,    I understand
G5            Cadd9         Gmaj          Cadd9
Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na na nanana, Na,    I understand
