VERSE: 
G#5         B5           G#5       F#5
God, what a mess, on the ladder of success

          E5                F#5                  B5
Where you take one step and miss the whole first rung

G#5         B5      G#5        F#5
Dreams unfulfilled, graduate unskilled

   E5                       F#5              B5
It beats pickin' cotton and waitin' to be forgotten

Wait on the sons of no one 

B5
Bastards of young 

E5 
Wait on the sons of no one 

B5 
Bastards of young 

F#5                   E5        
the daughters and the sons

B5 

Clean your baby womb, trash that baby boom
Elvis in the ground, there'll ain't no beer tonight
Income tax deduction, what a hell of a function
It beats pickin' cotton and waitin' to be forgotten 

Wait on the sons of no one 
Bastards of young 
Wait on the sons of no one 
Bastards of young
The daughters and the sons 

BRIDGE:
B5     C#5 

C#5              F#5          
Unwillingness to claim us, 

     F#5* E5*  D#5  C#5  B5
ya   got  no   word to   name us


SOLO CHORDS: E5 B5 E5 B5 F#5 E5 B5 

The ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to rest
And visit their graves on holidays at best
The ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please
If it's any consolation, I don't begin to understand them

We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
We are the sons of no one, bastards of young
The daughters and the sons
