Chords used: 
E G A and Asus4


[Intro]

E G A Asus4 A
E G A E x2


[Verse 1]

  E          G              A          E
Mother the doctor knows something is wrong
          G          A         E
Cause my body has strange information
       E          G              A         E
He's looked in my eyes and knows I'm not a child
         G           A               E
But he doesn't dare ask the right question


[Verse 2]

   E         G             A          E
Mother my friends are no longer my friends
          G              A             E
And the games we once played have no meaning
            E          G            A            E
I've gone serious and shy and they can't figure why
            G         A           E
So they've left me to my own daydreaming


[Chorus]

       G       A
What price to pay
     E
For bad wisdom
      G        A
What price to pay
     E
For bad wisdom
      G     
Too young to know
      A
Too much, too soon
      E
Bad wisdom,
      E
Bad wisdom.


[Verse 3]

  E             G            A           E
Mother you've taught me the laws are so fine-
        G           A         E
If I'm good that I will be protected,
       E                  G               A          E
I've fallen through the crack and there's no getting back
           G           A            E
And I'll never trust whoever gets elected


[Verse 4]

  E          G              A         E
Mother your eyes have gone suddenly cold
         G         A         E
And it wasn't what I was expecting
 E           G             A            E
Once I did think that I'd find comfort there
      G                  A            E
And instead you've gone hard and suspecting


[Chorus]

       G       A
What price to pay
     E
For bad wisdom
      G        A
What price to pay
     E
For bad wisdom
      G     
Too young to know
      A
Too much, too soon
      E
Bad wisdom,
      E
Bad wisdom.

[Bridge]

  E         G          A           E
Mother I'm cut at the root like a weed
  E           D          A              A
Cause there's no one to hear my small story
  E           G         A            E
Just like a woman who walks in the street,
        D
I will pay for my life with my body


[Chorus]

       G       A
What price to pay
     E
For bad wisdom
      G        A
What price to pay
     E
For bad wisdom
      G     
Too young to know
      A
Too much too soon
      E
Bad wisdom,
      E
Bad wisdom


[Outro]
