[Intro]

  Am  


[Verse 1]

   Am                       G             Am
As soon as you're born they make you feel small
   Am                    G          Am
By giving you no time instead of it all
         Am                      G          Am
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 2]

     Am                        G          Am
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
     Am                                 G         Am
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
            Am                         G            Am
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 3]

             Am                          G          Am
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Am                      G        Am
Then they expect you to pick a career
         Am                           G          Am
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 4]

         Am                      G         Am
Keep you doped with religion and sex and T.V.
        Am                         G             Am
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
           Am                        G            Am
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 5]

        Am                       G           Am
There's room at the top they are telling you still
    Am                          G            Am
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
       Am                  G            Am
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Outro]

       Am                     G           Am
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
       Am                     G           D          Am
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

On the second line of each chorus, the chord progression is actually AM G D Am. Also, the song ends with Am G D.
