this is the best song on the new GC CD!  this is just a transcription of the chords
used by the strings, guitar, and vocals...good for playing on acoustic guitar by yourself.  

all are best as power chords.


A# - G# - F# - G# (2x)

[Verse 1]

          A#    G#           F#
I need an alarm system in my house
     G#                   A#       G#
So I know when people are creeping about
                F#           G#
These people are freakin' me out
A#           G#          F#           G#
It's getting hectic everywhere that I go
                A#         G#
They won't just leave me alone
                    F#        G#
There's things they all wanna know
A#                     G#
I'm paranoid about the people I meet
Why are they talkin' to me?
And why can't anyone see


             A#        G#      F#
I just wanna live
             G#             A#                    G#    F#
Don't really care about the things that they say
             G#              A#             G#     F#
Don't really care about what happens to me
G#           A#               G#
I just wanna live (Just wanna live
            F#              G#              A#
Just wanna live just wanna live just wanna live)
           A#                    A# D# C C#
Just wanna live just wanna live

[Verse 2]

       A#   G#                     F#             
I rock a lawsuit when I'm going to court
        G#                    A#
A white suit when I'm gettin' divorced
        G#                  F#
A black suit at the funeral home
And my birthday suit when I'm home alone
A#             G#
Talkin' on the phone
               F#                 G#
Got an interview with the rolling stone
                A#                  G#
They're saying "Now you're rich and now you're famous
    F#                 G#
And fake ass girls all know your names and
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
Was your first hit aren't you ashamed?
Of the life of the life
Of the life we're livin'

REPEAT CHORUS (at the end hit F four times instead of the whole "just wanna live" part)

[Verse 3] (Same chords)

Stop your messin' around boy
Better think of your future
Better make some good plans boy
Said everyone of my teachers
Lookout, you better play it safe
You never know what hard times will come your way
We say where we're coming from
We've already seen
The wealth that this life can bring
Now we're expected everywhere that we go
All the things that they say
Yeah we already know


End on F
