E A D G B E
Panic! At The Disco - Mercenary
Transcribed by Louise Tammemagi


Am                      F
Just a dime-store poet, keeping pace, talking his face blue.
Am                      F
Two dollar store tramps, to get a glance, a new chance at you.

Am                           F
Walk passed the dance floor. It's always been a dear friend of mine.
Am                        F                    E
Cut coils and concubines. Dancing in four-four time.


CHORUS:
Am                F                    C                          E
"Hey mister", the bellman says, "I can only recall and spend some time I said."
Am                   F
So he replies, "And how do you manage?"
  E
I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage.


Am F C E


   Am                F
In love, I've always been a mercenary,
      C              E                            Am
But I never leave my post when the cash runs out.
                   F                            C
I want to make you quiver, make your backbone shiver.
                  E
Hey kid- take the stage and deliver.


CHORUS:
Am                F                    C                          E
"Hey mister", the bellman says, "I can only recall and spend some time I said."
Am                   F
So he replies, "And how do you manage?"
  E
I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage.


Am F C E x2 (This is progression is repeated through this part):

How does it feel to stand on the very stones that ran with your parents' blood? 
Do you feel sad? Full of rage? Or does that outfit help bury your feelings? 
Hiding your true self. 
You're a truly extraordinary Specimen, I look forward to breaking you.

(No guitar)
I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage.


CHORUS:
Am                F                    C                          E
"Hey mister", the bellman says, "I can only recall and spend some time I said."
Am                   F
So he replies, "And how do you manage?"
  E
I dodge the blast, and apologize for collateral damage.
x2

Am F C E x2
Am (let ring)

For the chorus, the correct lyrics are "I can only recall or spend some time i said" not "I can only recall this nice hotel I said". If you dont believe me, there is a lyric video on youtube posted by "fueledbyramen" which is their record label, it has correct lyrics.
