Tuning: Standard

F#m                          D
Everybody's got themselves a plan,
A                               E
Everybody thinks they'll be the man, including the girls.
F#m                                          D
The musicians who lack the friends to form a band are singer-songwriters, 
A                          E
The rest of us are DJ's or official club photographers.
F#m                                      D
And tonight I'm playing another Nambucca show, 
A                                          E
So I'm going through my phonebook, texting everyone I know, 
F#m                                                  D
And I quite a few I don't, whose numbers found their way into my phone,
A                                                  E 
But they might come along anyway, you never really know.

A               E        F#m
None of this is going anywhere –
D                 E
Pretty soon we'll all be old, 
A               E                 F#m
And no one left alive will really care
About our glory days, when we sold our souls.

              E                               F#m            D
But if you're all about the destination, then take a fucking flight.
      E                               F#m            E
We're going nowhere slowly, but we're seeing all the sights.
          D          A        E
And we're definitely going to hell, 
               A            E          F#m      E
But we'll have all the best stories to tell.
        D          A        E
Yes i'm definitely going to hell, 
               A            E          A
But i'll have all the best stories to tell.
