Here's my version of the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" for acoustic guitar.
I've given the chords - just listen to the song to put them where they
need to go - I like to use SUS chords in place of many Major and Minor
chords because it leaves the voicings open to interpretation - However,
you can replace my SUS chords with either Major or Minor chords, you'll
just need to see which works best for you (the original Who version has
dedicated Major or Minor chords) - it's a great song, so have fun.

[Intro]  

Em / G / D / Dsus / Cadd9 / Aadd9 /


[Verse]

 Em                       G   
No one knows what it's like   
            D  Dsus
to be the bad man
             Cadd9 
to be the sad man
   Asus2 
behind blue eyes

Em                       G
No one knows what it's like  
            D  Dsus
to be hated
             Cadd9 
to be fated
   Asus2 
to telling only lies


[Chorus]

           C     D  
But my dreams  
              G
they aren't as empty
        C         D         E 
as my conscience seems to be   
          Bsus2          C  
I have hours, only lonely     
                D  
my love is vengeance
              Asus2 
thats never free


[Verse]

 Em                       G 
No one knows what it's like   
            D  Dsus
to feel these feelings
             Cadd9 
like I do
   Asus2 
and I blame you

 Em                       G 
No one bites back as hard    
            D  Dsus
on their anger
             Cadd9 
none of my pain and woe
   Asus2 
can show through


[Chorus]

           C     D  
But my dreams  
              G
they aren't as empty
        C         D         E 
as my conscience seems to be   
          Bsus2          C  
I have hours, only lonely     
                D  
my love is vengeance
              Asus2 
thats never free


[Bridge]  

E   Bsus2   A 

 E                Bsus2              A 
When my fist clenches, crack it open  
  E           Bm           G         D 
Before I use it and loose my cool   
 Bsus2              A            D 
When I smile, tell me some bad news   
Bm           A          E        Bsus2     A 
Before I laugh and act like a fool  
E             Bsus2           A 
And if I swallow anything evil   
E         Bm         G         D 
Put your finger down my throat  
          Bsus2          A        D 
And if I shiver, please give me a blanket
   Bm       A      E      Bsus2      A 
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat  


[Instrumental]

Bsus2   Bsus2   A   D  
Bsus2   Bsus2   A   D
Bsus2   Bsus2   A   D
Bsus2 (hold)


[Verse]

 Em                       G   
No one knows what it's like   
            D  Dsus
to be the bad man
             Cadd9 
to be the sad man
   Asus2 
behind blue eyes
