Am 
(4x) 
G Am
Am 
(4x)


[Verse 1]
     F                             C
They say that I'm the King of California,
     F 
they tip their hats and wave. 
    Am                      G
But hey, dont say I didn't warn you:
                 F
'cause with the other hand they'll clench their fists 
             Am
and when you turn your back they'll stab and twist.

          F
It's the life that we must live 
                G
when we find fortune.
           F                                C
There's a pocket watch in the jacket on my shoulders 
       F
and I feel its weight as time goes by 
      Am              G
and I keep on getting older... 


[Bridge]
   F
I reach for gold to place my bet,
       Am
brush past the half-toked cigarette, 
        F 
it's a lonely life inside my head 
     G
but still I'm hanging on.


[Chorus]
  F     C
I keep waiting,
Am          G
waiting all along 
    F       C
for you to cave in.
Am                  G 
Admit that you were wrong! 
F            C
For all you gave me,
Am                    G      
for all... for all my pride.
              F
You were the fall of me.
    G          Am
You owe me an apology!


[Verse 2]
F                                          C
I've done some things I ain't to proud to say 
F
and there's a God above who'll come to judge 
    Am               G
but what's His hurry anyway?


F                                       C
See, we've all got scars that prove our test 
Am
you either walk away or you get left
  F
I remember every word you said 
        G
and now still I'm hanging on


[Chorus]
  F     C
I keep waiting,
Am          G
waiting all along 
    F       C
for you to cave in.
Am                  G 
Admit that you were wrong! 
F            C
For all you gave me,
Am                   G      
I swear for all my pride:
              F
You were the fall of me.
    G          Am
You owe me an apology!


[Instrumental]
G D F


[Verse 3]
F                             C
I walked a hundred miles in a day
   F
I climbed a mountain 
Am
staked my flag 
      G     
and I watched it fly away

    F
see Heaven has no time 
               Am
for this man's crooked games or politics
F
it's a lovers' war, a takers' gift 
       G
and it all gets washed away 

and still I'm...


   F   C
...waiting, 
Am                           F    C  
waiting all along for you to cave in.
Am                  G
Admit that you were wrong 
               F    C
for all you've gave me!


Am                 G
I swear for all my pride 
             F
you were the fall of me
    G                  
and I-iiii... am here 
  F         C
I just keep wai-ting.
Am
Waiting all along for you to
F    C
cave in.


Am                   G                F     C
Admit that you were wrong for all you gave me, 
      Am      G     F 
well fuck my pride, ahh...
G    F            G
oh, you were the fall of me.
                Am
you owe me an apology!


G Am C


Yeah,
