[VERSE 1](see below for guitar interlude played during verse)
       G#
Well I thought about the army
           D#m         
Dad said, "Son you're fucking high"
      C#                                     G#
And I thought, yeah there's a first for everything
                         G#
So I took my old man's advice, three sad semesters
       D#m              
It was only fifteen grand 
         C#
spent in bed, I thought about the army
G#                C#/F            
I dropped out and joined a band instead

[CHORUS] (piano solo)
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
D#m  A#m  G#maj7

[VERSE 2]
       G#
Grew a moustache and a mullet
       D#m    
Got a job at chick-fillet
       C#                                     
Citing artistic differences
         G# 
the band broke up in May
       Fm             
And in June reformed without me
       D#m
And they got a different name
       C# 
I nuked another grandma's apple pie
         G#
And hung my head in shame, no

[CHORUS] (listen to song for the arrangement of the chords)
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
              Been thinking a lot today
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
              Been thinking a lot today
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
              Been thinking a lot today

[BRIDGE]
F# C#                    G#
Oh Oh Think I'll write a screenplay
F# C#                        G#
Oh Oh Think I'll take you to LA
F# C#                         Cm
Oh Oh  Think I'll get it done yesterday

G#  D#m  C#  G#
G#  D#m  C#  G#

[VERSE 3]
       G#
In this time of introspection
       D#m
On the eve of my election
       C#
I say to my reflection
      G#
God please spare me more rejection
        Fm
'Cause my peers, they criticize me
        D#m
And my ex-wives all despise me
       C#
Try to put it all behind me
        G#
But my redneck past is nipping at my heels 

[CHORUS] (listen to song for the arrangement of the chords)
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
              Been thinking a lot today
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
              Been thinking a lot today
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
              Been thinking a lot today

[ENDING]
               F#maj7
I thought about       
A#       G#maj7
   the army

I think this should be done with a capo on first I don't know about other people but personally i find it difficult to play D#m so for anyone else put a capo on first and play everthing one step down
