Here's a new song that Ted Leo performs.  It's awesome.  I love it.  I think the lyrics
are 98% right.  Just not sure what he says in the second line, (dubious?) and few other
lines might be iffy.  Other than that, I think it's fairly accurate.  Not sure what he 
does between the verses though.  Maybe some variation of the D chord.  The notes that he
picks are e, d c#, b.

D              A                             Bm
I spent the morning with my vitamins and many black teas

G                     F#m                 Em           picking part
E,D, C#, B
combatting the dubious induced haze

A           Em                  F#m                Em
barely awake, already shaken by the misty newsfeed

Bm
I ain't slept very well for days

G             A                              D                          Bm
for all the schadenfreude of mocking stupid politicians

G                        F#m                   Em
I should try to bring a better spirit to my day

A              Em                   Bm
although I can't believe our souls are at their basest, good

G             A                   Bm          Em
i'd like to live as if I could (oh yea)

G             A            D
i'd like to live as if I could


D                 A                              Bm
You try to offer something without asking much return

G                      F#m                Em        Picking part
At best even less than it is worth

A                  Em              F#m                    Em
And watch it taken every day from every petty picker

Bm
More than you can accumulate from birth

G                         A                             D                         Bm
No, you might never know how the work you've done affects your living

G           F#m                              Em
Trust in animus might just get you through the day

A                    Em                         Bm
And though I don't believe it's lucky when you knock on wood

G       A                    Bm          Em
I'd to live as if I could (oh yea)

G       A             D
I'd to live as if i could.

i'd like to live as if I could (oh yea)
