[Verse 1]

Bm             A                     G
You, with your words like knives and swords
G
And weapons that you use against me 
Bm        A                 G
You, have knocked me off my feet again
G
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Bm             A                     G
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
G
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Bm   A                     G
You, pickin' on the weaker man


[Pre-Chorus 1]

A                        D               G      A
 Well you can take me down with just one single blow
    G*
But you don't know, what you don't know...


[Chorus]

D       A       Bm                  G                 
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D          A                G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D       A       Bm                      G                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          A                G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   D      C D  
Why you gotta be so mean?


[Verse 2]

Bm             A                                                  
You, with your switching sides and
     G                       
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Bm        A              G                                                               
You, have pointed out my flaws again
       -stop                                                 
As if I don't already see them
Bm          A                                          
I walk with my head down
          G                                                     
Tryin' to block you out 
         G
'Cause I never impress you
Bm     A           G                                                               
I just wanna feel okay again


[Pre-Chorus 2]

A                                                            
I bet you got pushed around
D        G        A                                        
Somebody made you cold
A                                                                                          
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
G
You can't lead me down that road
                   G -stop                                                 
And you don't know what you don't know


[Chorus]

D       A       Bm                  G                
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D          A                G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D       A       Bm                      G                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          A                G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   D     C D   A   G 
Why you gotta be so mean?


[Bridge]

          A
And I can see you years from now in a bar
D               G            A
 Talkin' over a football game
A
With that same big loud opinion
D            G        A
But no one's listening
A
Washed up and ranting about the 
D* *once   A*       G*     
Same old   bitter   things
A                                 D* A*    G*  
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I  can't sing
 no chord         D    A  Bm  
But all you are is mean

[Interlude]

G              D            A          Bm
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
    G                 D         A         Bm        G
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean


*Palm mute first 2 lines*
    D       A       Bm                  G               
But someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D          A                G      G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean,  yeah--ah


[Chorus 2]

D       A       Bm                      G                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          A               G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
G                   D
Why you gotta be so...Someday
A       Bm                 G               
I'll be livin in a big ol' city why ya gotta be so mean
    D          A                G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean why ya gotta be so mean
D       A       Bm                      G                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me why ya gotta be so mean
    D* *once   A*               G*
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   D*
Why you gotta be so  mean?

I think the G/E in the chorus could simply be a D. Let me know what ya think :) Sometimes I make it more difficult than it needs to be! It might take a few days for it to update.

I think it should be something like: D A Bm G for the verses

@Buzzle- I think you're right for the chorus. A4 or A can be used (preference I guess) but the Bm sounds a little better than the G/E or a D! And a G rather than D/F# is easier to get to from the Bm (for me anyways). I was very close though. The way I play the G/E is half of the way Bm is. G/E [020030] Bm [024430], that's why the sounds was almost right but not quite. I like the verses and think they're good as they are.
Thank you! I'll update and you'll get credit :)
