Tabbed by: trevgreg
Email: trevgreg1227@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

I couldn't find a tab with chords that actually sounded like the song, but I found out
it was pretty easy to play this song with the popular chord progression of F#-A-E-B.

Chords:
F#           2 4 4 x x x
A            x 0 2 2 2 0
E            0 2 2 1 0 0
Bsus2        x 2 4 4 2 2



Verse One:
F#                A
All around me are familiar faces

E                Bsus2          
Worn out places, worn out faces

F#                         A
Bright and early for their daily races

E              Bsus2
Going nowhere, going nowhere

F#                      A
Their tears are filling up their glasses

E              Bsus2
No expression, no expression

F#                     A
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

E            Bsus2
No tomorrow, no tomorrow



Chorus One:
F#                    Bsus2
And I find it kind of funny

                  F#
I find it kind of sad

                        Bsus2
The dreams in which I'm dying

                       F#
Are the best I've ever had

                  Bsus2   
I find it hard to tell you
 
                         F# 
'Cause I find it hard to take

                   Bsus2
When people run in circles
         
It's a very, very

F#   A   Bsus2

F#                       A 
Children waiting for the day they feel good

E               Bsus2
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday

F#                        A 
Made to feel the way that every child should

E               Bsus2
Sit and listen, sit and listen

F#                       A   
Went to school and I was very nervous

E               Bsus2 
No one knew me, no one knew me

F#                     A 
Hello teacher, tell me what's my lesson

E                      Bsus2
Look right through me, look right through me

Are the best I've ever had

                  Bsus2   
I find it hard to tell you
 
                         F# 
'Cause I find it hard to take
