Ok, this is my first tab, so I might get some things wrong. This is what it sounds like, atleast.

Ballad Of A Comeback Kid:

Intro:
G                        A                           D                              G
Pray for content, settle for free rent, the tenements recall Rome.
G                   A                              Bm                      Em
High five look up, look alive, as the scions of history guess another mystery
C       G     C      G      C       G     C
Wrong.      Wrong.     Wrong.

Verse 1:
G               D     G                      D
Recite your lines,  and I'll quote scriptures.
Em                  Am          Cm                          Bm
Everything was fine until membership lost its privileges.
G                D     G                    D
Everyone in town wanted to be around you.
Em                       Am                   Cm                       Bm
This went on for a while until they finally found you.

Chorus 1:
C                    D                       Em                        Bm                
             C
Ever so careful, on the strip we cruise, crippled in someone else's shoes.
C               D                 Em                            Bm                  C
Who knew?  Mind you. I never had to stand in line, you did...
C         D                               C        G D, C    G D.
For the ballad of a comeback kid.

Verse 2:
G               D     G                                        D
Watch your step as you step down from the podium.
Em                                     Am                    Cm                          
                   Bm
Returned from the war to a hero's welcome, what's more you just had to win.
G         D               G                                 D
Blazing new trails, waving goodbye to the audience.
Em                    Am                             Cm                                  
Bm
Held captive the crowd was inactive, it made such perfect sense.

Chorus 2:
C                    D                       Em                        Bm                
             C
Ever so careful, on the strip we cruise, crippled in someone else's shoes.
C               D                 Em                            Bm   (Stop)    G
Who knew?  Mind you. I never had to stand in line, you...... did.

Bridge: G      C,    G     C.
            G                              C
But you won't, Kelly says she could have. (x2)
C                       G                                               Bm   Em
Like a bat out of hell time has come for... (x3)  ... you.

Chorus 3:
C                    D                       Em                        Bm                
             C
Ever so careful, on the strip we cruise, crippled in someone else's shoes.
C               D                 Em                            Bm
Who knew?  Mind you. I never had to stand in line, you... (x2) did.
C         D                               C.        C G D (x6- x8, I don't know) End on C
For the ballad of a comeback kid.


This one is easy to learn, really. Just listen to the song to try to get the strumming.
