MEAN - Taylor Swift

Capo 2


[Verse]

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]

     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
N.C.               D
Why you gotta be so mean?

[Verse]

Bm             A                                                  
You, with your swithching sides and
     G                       G
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Bm         A                   G                               
You, have pointed out my flaws again
        G     N.C.                                                 
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        G
I just wanna feel okay again


[Pre-Chorus]

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
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
Why you gotta be so mean?

C slide in to D

[Instrumental]

G (2 measures)


[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    A   G    
same old bitter things
A                                D A     G  
Drunk and rumblin' all about how I can't sing
N.C.              D     A 
But all you are is mean
G              D           A         D
All you are is mean, and a liar, and pathetic
    G                 D         A         D         G
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean


[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...yeahh
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
Why you gotta be so.. Someday
 A       Bm               G 
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
Why you gotta be so mean
