Les Vinyl's F for Effort - Made popular by the What Say You Podcast.

Some of the Em chords might actually be E or E7, but my ear isn't good enough to tell.  I like 
the sound of E7 when transitioning to the chorus, but you might think otherwise.

Also, try intermixing C and Cm for a more interesting sound.

Intro G / D / C / Em x2


             G                      D 
I heard that Rome wasn't built in a day
              C                       Em
Then how come everyone rushing to get ahead
 

              G                             D
And if I seem to be reserved that's just my way
     C                                        E7
Your questions seem like you're interrogating me


        B
Yeah, I try
              C
Then again, I don't try
               D
I get an F for effort
                  Em
I'll get a D next time


(interlude) G / D / Cm / Em


               G                           D
I've heard the lemon metaphor four million times
            C                               Em
And I don't stand for lemonade don't ask me why


            G                                 D
And would a beverage stand be a job that'd be desired
          C                                 E7
And where would I get the wood and should I try?


         B
Should I try,
              C
Then again, I don't try
               D
I get an F for effort
              E7
I get a sixty-five


        B
Yeah, I try
              C      
Then again, I don't try
               D
I get an F for effort
                 (Begin interlude below)
I might as well just...

             G                                  D       
I heard that currency don't grow like leaves on trees
                 C                       Em
Then how come my money comes and goes so seasonally


           G                                 D
And I wish farmers planted plants instead of thieves
                 C                        E7
My friend pays a ton of green for greener groceries


          B
Yeah, she tries
                C
Then again, she don't try
                  D
She gets an F for effort
                         E7
She'll plant a tree next time


          B
Yeah, she tries
              C
Then again, I don't try
               D
I get an F for effort
                  E7
I'll get a D next time


        B
Yeah, I try 
              C
Then again, I don't try
               D
I get an F for effort
           E7
I'll get a 65


        B
Yeah, I try 
              C
Then again, I don't try
               D
I get an F for effort
                       E7
I might as well just...die
