[Verse]

D               A
Do you have the time
Bm           F#m
To listen to me whine
 G            D
About nothing and everything
    A
All at once

D           A
I am one of those
Bm     F#m
Melodramatic fools
G           D
Neurotic to the bone
         A
No doubt about it


[Chorus]

G            A             D
 Sometimes I give myself the creeps
G             A                  D
 Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
   G                A
It all keeps adding up
  D         C        Bm 
I think I'm cracking up
   G          A
Am I just paranoid?
          (D*)
Am I just stoned?

D*  A*  Bm* A*  
D*  A*  Bm* A* 


[Verse]

  D         A
I went to a shrink
   Bm         F#m
To analyze my dreams
    G                 D
She says it's lack of sex
                A
That's bringing me down
  D         A 
I went to a whore
   Bm               F#m
He said my life's a bore
   G               D
So quit my whining cause
              A
It's bringing her down


[Chorus]

G            A            D
 Sometimes I give myself the creeps
G             A                  D
 Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
   G                A
It all keeps adding up
  D         C        Bm
I think I'm cracking up
   G          A
Am I just paranoid?
              (D*)
Uh, yuh, yuh, ya

So I better hold on

G             A                  D
 Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
   G                A
It all keeps adding up
  D         C        Bm
I think I'm cracking up

Am I just stoned?

To make this incredibly easy to play, even for a very new player, use the transpose function -2, Capo on third and play the f like this:

e 1
B 1
G 2
D 3
A x
E x

It still sounds great. A perfect 'first song'
