Here is Consequence Free by Great Big Sea. This song is often chorded
incorrectly because of the Bm in it. If you don't like this chord, don't 
worry, there's a way to play it easily. Just do xxx432 instead of x24432. 
(For the record, Sean McCann plays it xx4432 when playing this song live)

Tuning: Standard

D     A     G      A
Na na na na na na na na na

D               A                 G            A   (same for each line)
Wouldn't it be great, if no one ever got offended
Wouldn't it be great to say what's really on your mind
I have always said 'all the rules are made for bending'
And if I let my hair down, would that be such a crime?

A (leading in)
G       A  D           Bm
I wanna be consequence free
G       A  D                      Bm
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter
G       A  D           Bm
I wanna be consequence free
          D      A       G        A
just sing Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na

[Verse, same as last]
I could really use, to lose my Catholic conscience
Cuz I'm getting sick of feeling guilty all the time
I won't abuse it, Yeah I've got the best intentions
For a little bit of anarchy but not the hurting kind


[Bridge] (D and then A leading in)
G          D                
I couldn't sleep at all last night
Bm               A
cause I had so much on my mind
G           D
I'd like to leave it all behind,
Bm       A                 G   
but you know it's not that easy
But for just one night

[Same as verse]
Wouldn't it be great, if the band just never ended
We could stay out late and we would never hear last call
We wouldn't need to worry about approval or permission,
we could - slip off the edge and never worry about the fall

just one thing-the D on "where nothing needs to matter" should be another Bm.

Who66 is right about that Bm.
