I revised this to include the breaks and make it easier to print on 1 page.
I play this in standard tuning, but it is tuned down a whole step.
Chords:  Am 002210      C x32010      Fmaj7/C x33210      G 320001
Intro:
C   G   Am   G   Fmaj7/C   G               Fmaj7/C  C  Am  G  Fmaj7/C  C
Verse 1:
Fmaj7/C                        C  
I think i'm going to work construction 
             G            Am  
Just to make something of myself 
        Fmaj7/C                  C              G
I can't live off these childhood trophies on my shelf 
  Fmaj7/C              C 
I want to get my hands dirty 
                 G             Am
I want to feel a burning in my legs 
       Fmaj7/C           C              G
I want more than the receipt for what I paid 

Chorus:
        Am        G
Because everybody loves something new 
               Fmaj7/C             C
'cause you can open it and plug it in 
       Am                G
And it feels like a good night's sleep 
                       Fmaj7/C       C
Like the girl you like paid you a compliment 
C                 G          Am                G             Fmaj7/C        
They can keep the change and they can keep 'em coming they can talk to
           G
who’s listening 
C         G           Am          G       Fmaj7/C     C
I'm still looking for something a little more permanent 

Break:    C   G   Am   G   Fmaj7/C   C

Verse 2:
I am not a poet 
Show me the easy way and I'll do it 
No one could ever say that I've been trying way too hard 
Everything that I have ever owned 
Got dusty and old 
So I threw it out just to make myself some room 

Chorus:

I'm like everybody I love something new 
'cause you can open it and plug it in 
And it feels like a good night's sleep 
Like the girl you like paid you a compliment 
They can keep the change and they can keep 'em coming they can talk to who's listening 
I'm still looking for something that I can die with 

Break:    C   G   Am   G   Fmaj7/C   C

Verse 3:
If my luck is running out 
Please don't let it be so with love 
It's been a long year but I'm not ready to give up 
Even if I lay ten million bricks 
And they break through the summer haze 
Someone will come around and bulldoze them down some day Ohhhhh

Chorus: 
Because everybody loves something new 
You get rid of what came before 
And it feels like a long hot shower 
Like getting in your bed when the sheets are warm 
So they can keep construction and they can keep em coming and I won't be listening  
Cause I found something a little more permanent G 
Oh yes, I found someone that I can die with

C  G  Am  G  Fmaj7/C  C
