[Intro]
Am  Fmaj7  Gsus4  G

[Verse]
Am              G                      F
You, with your words like knives and swords
And weapons that you use against me 
Am          G                F
You, have knocked me off my feet again
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Am              G                     F
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Am    G                     F
You, pickin' on the weaker man

[Bridge]
G                           C               F      G
   Well you can take me down with just one single blow
    F (once)
But you don't know, what you don't know...

[Chorus]
C       G        F                 
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    C          G                 F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
C       G        F                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    C          G                 F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
F(once)              C       Bb  C  C/B
Why you gotta be so mean?

[Verse]
Am             G                                                  
You, with your swithching sides and
     F                       
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Am         G              F                                                               
You, have pointed out my flaws again
         F (once)                                                 
As if I don't already see them
Am          G                                          
I walk with my head down
          F                                                     
Tryin' to block you out 'cause I never impress you
Am      G           F                                                               
I just wanna feel okay again
G                                                            
  I bet you got pushed around
C         F        G                                        
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
F
You can't lead me down that road
                         F (once)                                                 
And you don't know what you don't know

[Chorus]
C       G        F                 
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    C          G                 F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
C       G        F                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    C          G                 F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
F(once)              C       
Why you gotta be so mean?

[Verse]
           G
And I can see you years from now in a bar
C                 F           G
 Talkin' over a football game
With that same big loud opinion
C             F        G
But no one's listening
Washed up and ranting about the 
F* *once   G*       F (fingerpicking)     
Same old   bitter   things
G                                 F*  G*    F*  
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I  can't sing
                    C    G  Am  
But all you are is mean
F              C           G          Am
All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic
    F                  C         G         Am        F
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean
But someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city 
                                         F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean,  yeah
C       G        F                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    C          G                 F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                       C
Why you gotta be so...Someday
G         F               
I'll be livin in a big ol' city (why ya gotta be so mean)
    C          G                 F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (why ya gotta be so mean)
C       G         F               
Someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city (why ya gotta be so mean)
    C* *once   G*                F*
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                      C*
Why you gotta be so  mean?

Thank you! This seems to match the Glee version perfectly! And thank you for the notes on where to strum once, or fingerpick, or palm mute. Makes it really easy to play along with the song!
