Down On Me (by The Cult)

I love this song, pity it's just a demo. It can be played with acoustic guitar 
although chorus (and pre-chorus) are 5th with distortion.

Verse arrangements:

INTRO
C Am Dm G x2

C                  Am    Dm
The poet's head is dead
                       G
His words have been misread
C                        Am   Dm
And the cynic's lips are dry
                     G        C
His vulture tongue obsessed

(C)       Dm
You gotta love the earth
G
Don't burn my wings
Em
Too close to the sun

CHORUS
Am                    C        G
What the hell am I supposed to do
G                   C       Am
When you're pushing hard on me
Am                   C        G
who the hell am I supposed to be
G                        C    Am
When you're bleeding all over me

C Dm G (G)

C
God knows I'm good
Am
So misunderstood
          Dm    G
Coming to you   Ah-ah
C
I'm down on my own
Am
No spirit unknown
       Dm         G                        C
That's why I'm supposed to believe in you

(C)    Dm
I love the earth
G
Don't burn my wings
Em
Too close to the sun

(CHORUS)
What the hell am I supposed to do
When you're pushing hard on me
who the hell am I supposed to be
When you're bleeding all over me

Am
Said it before
Em
Sayin' it again
(Em)
Holy fools yea

C Dm G G x2

(CHORUS)
What the hell am I supposed to do
When you're pushing hard on me
who the hell am I supposed to be
When you're bleeding hard for me

Am                             C                  G
What are you gonna do when the light gets in your eye
G                                       C    Am
You're gonna find that there's--there's life outside
Am          C        G
Who am I supposed to be
G              C             Am
When you're so hard, hard on me

OUTRO
(C)                   Am
Oh the poet's head is dead
Dm                  G
His words have been misread
C                    Am
The cynic's lips are dry
Dm                  G
His vulture tongue obsessed

(G)                       C                 
And he wants to know that God knows I'm good...
(Am) (Dm) (G) (C)
