Okay so here is Status Quo from Starship. I did the best I could, sorry if it isn't perfect.

Capo 7

Verse 1

Em                         C                           G
It starts with not questioning the answers
Em                 C                            G
And giving up before you've begun
Em                      C                                  G
It locks all the doors, increases the pressure
                Em                          C                        Em
And in a flash your time is up before it's done
                   C                                     F
And you won't know how it can feel
To feel at all


So I say 
Am F  C                   G     F   C
No-o-o to status quo-o-o
         Am                               F
Who wants to be like the rest 
                         C                                 G
And deny the best that I'm meant for

I will 
Am      F     C                      G      F   C
Show-oh-oh the status quo-o-o
Who wants to be normal
I'll never conform
          C                          G                          Em    C    G
I will be content to resent the status quo

Verse 2
Am                           F
I'll kick down the walls around me
C                                       G
They don't know how strong I am
Am              F
I'm not defined by boundaries
C                          G              F
They will never understand
                       Am  F   C
I'm so much mo-o-ore
                      G     F    C
Than status quo-o-o
         Am                           F
Who cares about being another pipe dreamer
C                                  G
Stuck on the bottom floor
           Am  F   C                         G   F   C
And I kno-o-ow it's time to go-o-o

So maybe I've
Am                                       F
Gotten everything that I wanted but
                        C                                 G
I think that I might have made it so
When I said no
                   Am     C      Em      Am       F6    C  G  Em F#  
To status quoooooooooo-o-o!

G                      D
Cause I am a starship ranger
G                              D
I'm gonna do everything I can
G                        Em
To always be a starship ranger
                   G  C  Em
Cause it's everything
       Fm Gm Fm Gm Fm Gm Fm Gm
It's everything
   D   (move D up one fret. do this 3 times) 
I Am!

End on D again.
