Good Charlotte - The Anthem

I used to be a big GC-fan, not anymore though! Somehow this song struck my
mind and I had to listen to it, then I just felt like tabbing it.. 
Enjoy!

*Verse*
        C#             G#
It's a new day, but it all feels old
        C#                F#
It's a good life, that's what I'm told
     C#            G#                 F#
But everything, it all just feels the same

       C#                   G#
At my high school, it felt more to me
        C#              F#
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary
    C#                  G#            F#      
My time spent there, it only made me see


*Pre-chorus 1*
     Bbm               F#
That I don't ever wanna be like you
C#
I don't wanna do the things you do
    Bbm                  F#
I'm never gonna hear the words you say
    G#
and I don't ever wanna, I don't ever wanna be

*Chorus*
C#   G#   F#            G#   C#        G#
You___    ...don't wanna be just like you

F#             A        
  Oh what I'm sayin' is 
C#            G#       F#          G#
This is the anthem, throw all your hands up, 
C#   G#   F#                 C# <-(When you land on this chord you
you___    ... don't wanna be you|      play the second intro)


*Second intro*


*Verse2*
       C#           G#
Go to college, a university
       C#                         F#
Get a real job, That's what they said to me
    C#            G#                F#
But I could never live the way they want

           C#              G#
I'm gonna get by, and just do my time, 
        C#                   F#
Out of step while, they all get in line
     C#           G#              F#
I'm just a minor threat so pay no mind

*Pre-chorus 2*
Bbm                F#
Do you really wanna be like them, 
       C#
do you really wanna be another trend?
Bbm                  F#
Do you wanna be part of that crowd?
       G#
'cause I don't ever wanna, I don't ever wanna be

*Chorus* (Only one small difference)
You...don't wanna be just like you
Oh what I'm sayin' is this is the anthem throw all your hands up,
                    Bbm <--(Instead of landing on C#,
you, don't wanna be you     you land on Bbm, for the bridge)


*Bridge*
(Bbm)          G#                     
   Shake it once, that's fine
F#             G#
   Shake it twice, that's okay
Bbm            G#                C#           G#
   Shake it three times, you're playing with yourself, again.
