[Verse 1]
Am                         Em     F                            C
You've heard the story you know how it goes
Dm                  Am                       F                        Em
Once upon a garden we were lovers with no clothes
Am                      Em                 F                      C
Fresh from the soil we were beautiful and true
     Dm                    Am                      F                         Em
In control of our emotions till we ate the poison fruit
And now its

F            C
Hard to be
Dm        Am
Hard to be
F            C
Hard to be
    Dm                    Am 
A decent Human being 

[Verse 2]
Wait just a minute
        F                          C
You expect me to believe
        Dm                  Am                          F                         Em
that all this misbehaving grew from one enchanted tree
         Am              Em                           F                 C
And helpless to fight it we should all be satisfied
                Dm                  Am             F                        Em
With the magical explanation for why the living die
And why it's

F            C
Hard to be
Dm        Am
Hard to be
F            C
Hard to be
    Dm                    Am 
A decent Human being 

Dm                 G          C                           F
Child birth is painful toil to grow our food
Dm                             G
Ignorance made us hungry
C                                          F
Information made us no good
           Dm                         Em
Every burden misunderstood

[Verse 3]
Am                Em                 F                         C
I swung my tassel to the left side of my cap
                 Dm             Am                           F                    Em
Knowing after graduation there would be no going back
        Am               Em                         F                   C
and no congratulations from my faithful family
               Dm                           Am            F                     Em
some of whom are already fasting to intercede for me
Because it's

F         C
Hard to be
Dm        Am
Hard to be

F          C
Hard to be
Dm                   Am
A decent human being

This is 100% accurate except that the original song is actually on capo 3, i mean it doesn't really matter if you want to sing in the key of C# or C, I'm just saying the original key is C, capo 3.

Good tab, but maybe include intro chords and line the verse chords up?
