Capo on the second fret
(You don't *have* to play it with a capo, but it'd be much harder)
(Also, Johnny plays it with the high-E tuned to an F#, but that
 only matters in the solo, so we all don't *have* to do it)

Verse:
F#5			    D5
I'll open up my head awhile 
Its been dead for years 
F#5			     D5  A5
Musta been a victim of my peers 
F#5
One is for my happiness 
    D5
The other for my health 
    F#5				    D5 A5
The last is something bigger than myself

Chorus:
G5 		B5	  G5			B5
I ain't the only one, I ain't the only one 
G5		B5		C5
I ain't the only one to say

(verse)
I'm talkin' to myself again 
I'll just start a fight 
Nobody can prove me wrong, I'm right 
Anti-hero idol with a suicide excuse 
A thousand other suckers will try and fill your shoes

(break)

(chorus)
I ain't the only one, I ain't the only one 
I ain't the only one to say

(solo)

I ain't the only one, I ain't the only one

Little pictures in my head are turnin' inside out again 
'Cause fuckin' up takes practice I feel I'm well rehearsed 
Because the past is a bully and the futures even worse 
You tell me what you fear 'cause I can feel it like a curse

(verse)
Well, you used to be a folk singer, now you're just a joke singer 
Ain't no smokin' dope singer, swingin from a rope singer

(chorus)
I ain't the only one, I ain't the only one 
I ain't the only one to say

I think the chorus is:

A5 C#5 A5 C#5
I ain't the only one, I ain't the only one
A5 C#5 D5
I ain't the only one to say

** Not exactly sure on the D5, but pretty sure the rest is correct.
