Pay it Back        By Elvis C.

Stop thief; you're gonna come to grief
if you don't take a little more care.
             G        Em7      C      G
You're gonna get more than the family plan
                  C        G
from this one shoestring affair.
Em      A                   C       G          F

  I may be crazy but I can't contemplate being trapped between the
       C      Bm
and the magistrate.

One of these days I'm gonna pay it back, pay it back,
one of these days.
One of these days I'm gonna pay it back, pay it back,
one of these days.

And then they told me I could be somebody
if I didn't let too much get in my way.
      G        Em7          C    G
And I tried so hard just to be myself,
              C      G
but I keep on fading away.
         Em          A              C            G
Until the lights went out, I didn't know what to do.
           F                      C             Bm
If I could fool myself, then maybe I'd fool you too.


I wouldn't say that I was raised on romance.
Let's not get stuck in the past.
           G    Em7       C            G
I love you more than everything in the world.
               C         G
I don't expect that will last.
Em                           C      G
  They told me everything was guaranteed.
F                          C        Bm
 Somebody somewhere must've lied to me.

If someone could tab the lead parts that'd be rad!
