[Verse]

A                  Amaj7
Ever since I was a kid at school
A7                   D
I messed around with all the rules
Dm               A                E              A
Apologized then realized I'm not different after all
                         Amaj7         A7         D
Me & the boys thought we had it sussed Valentinos all of us
Dm                      A            E                  A
My dad said we looked rediculous but boy we broke some hearts


                    Amaj7      A7               D
In and out of jobs runnin free wagin war with society
Dm                      A            E            A
Some blank faces stare back at me & nothin ever changed
                     Amaj7             A7                     D
Promises made in the heat of the night creepin home before it got too light
Dm                  A                 E               A
I wasted all that precious time and blamed it on the wine


      [Chorus]

      A          D  E         A
      I was only jo-king  my dear (my dear)
                    D      E       F#m
      Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear)
                   D      E  A
      What kind of fo-ol was I (was I)
               Bm
      I could never win (never win)      ......Riff


[Verse]

A              Amaj7     A7                    D
Never found a comprimise collected lovers like butterflies
Dm                 A                        E     A
Illusions of that grand first prize are slowly wasted
                    Amaj7      A7             D
Suzie baby you were good to me givin' love unselfishly
Dm                       A
But you took it all too seriously
E                 A
I guess it had to end


[Chorus]

      A          D  E         A
      I was only jo-king  my dear (my dear)
                    D      E       F#m
      Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear)
                   D      E  A
      What kind of fo-ol was I (was I)
               Bm
      I could never win (never win)      ......Riff


[Instrumental]

A Amaj7 A7 D Dm A E A

A D E F#m Bm F#m Bm Riff


[Verse]

          A       Amaj7       A7                         D
Now you ask me if I'm sincere that's the question that I always fear
Dm                  A                   E                       A
The first seven is never clear but I'll tell you what you wanna hear
                     Amaj7        A7                          D
I'll try to give you all you want but givin' love is not my strongest point
Dm                                A        E               A
If that's the case it's pointless goin' on I'd rather be alone
      A              Amaj7         A7                   D
'Cause what I'm doin must be wrong pourin' my heart out in a song
Dm                 A               E                  A
Owning up for prosperity for the whole damn world to see
 A                  Amaj7       A7                     D
Quietly now while I turn a page Act 20's over without costume change
    Dm                       A
The principal would like to leave the stage
     E                 A
The crowd don't understand

I think your tab is pretty much spot on except when it goes "what kind of fool was i" it should be F#m

Great tab, but I play it with capo on 1st fret and it matches the cd perfectly.
