For all of the verses you pluck the A string once, play the chord, twice, play the chord 
it would look like this:
e|--------------------------------------------1-----------1-------------------|
B|----1-----------1-------1-----------1---------------------------1----------1|
G|------------------------2-----------2---------------------------2----------2|
D|----2-----------2-------2-----------2---------------------------3----------3|
A|3---3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2---2---3---3---3---3--3|
E|--------------------------------------------3-----------3-------------------|
the chords on the chorus may be off a little just because of the computer, but you 
be able to figure out when they change!!
For the chorus you just play the chords normally...Enjoy!!

Intro C Am G F

Verse
C
Trouble travels fast 
							Am
When you’re specially designed for crash testing 
							G
Or wearing wool sunglasses in the afternoon 
						F
Come on and tell us what you’re trying to prove 

			C
Because it’s a battle when you dabble in war 
			Am
You store it up, unleash it, then you piece it together 
				G
Whether the storm drain running rampant just stamp it 
				F
And send it to somebody who’s pretending to care 

	C
Just cash in your blanks for little toy tanks 
		     Am
Learn how to use them, then abuse them and choose them 
		G
Over conversations relationships are overrated 
F
“I hated everyone” said the sun 

		     C
And so I will cook all your books 

You’re too good looking and mistooken 
       Am
You could watch it instead 
						G
From the comfort of your burning beds 
						F      G
…Or you can sleep through the static 

Chorus
C		    G		      Am
Who needs sleep when we’ve got love? 
F		    G		    C
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs? 
C		     G			Am
Who needs please when we’ve got guns? 
F		    G			C
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above 
	C			G		Am
But beyond where we should have gone? 
	F			G			  C
We went beyond where we should have gone 

Verse
C
Stuck between channels my thoughts all quit 
		Am
I thought about them too much, allowed them to touch 
		   G
The feelings that rained down on the plains all dried and cracked 
  F
Waiting for things that never came 

		   C
Shock and awful thing to make somebody think 
				Am
That they have to choose pushing for peace supporting the troops 
			   G
And either you’re weak or you’ll use brut force-feed the truth 
		F
The truth is we say not as we do 

		      C
We say anytime, anywhere, just show your teeth and strike the fear 
     Am
Of god wears camouflage, cries at night and drives a dodge 
   G
Pick up the beat and stop hogging the feast 
	   F
That’s no way to treat an enemy 

	C
Well mighty mighty appetite 

we just eat ‘em up and keep on driving 
	Am
Freedom can be freezing take a picture from the pretty side 
G
Mind your manners wave your banners 

				F				G
What a wonderful world that this angle can see 

Chorus
C			   G			Am
But who needs to see what we’ve done? 
F		     G			C
Who needs please when we’ve got guns? 
C		    G		    Am
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs? 
F		    G			C
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above 
C		    G			  Am
But beyond where we should have gone? 
F		G				C
Beyond where we should have gone 
C			   G				   Am
We went beyond where we should have gone 
 F		     G				C
Beyond where we should have gone
