                                F#m                    G#m     E/B/A
Maybe I''ll pull up the stakes and not be lettin' go
                          E/B/C#m                           A
I could not believe               I could not believe

---------------------------------------------

B(aug)        E         A/E
Can I get a witness,   witness
B(aug)        E         A/E

You know a lot of times I think I'm mad
                                F#m      G#m  E/B/A
And I feel lost on this exit now
                       E/B/C#m                        A

I don't feel like a pupil just a loser on a game show
                            E/B     C#m                  A

I'm rooting for you     and I toasted when I heard about you
                            E         B
And how you got a witness
A                       F#m                 G#m/ E/B/A
A citizen may be in another place
                        F#m    G#m
Here comes the wind
                   E/B/A
I'm a chaser
                                E/B
(and) it's time to leave
                    C#m
Here it comes

It's time to leave
