                                                MY OWN WORST ENEMY (CHORDS) - Lit
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard
If you want to play and sing this song on acoustic, this is what I would suggest.
I strum as follows during the verses. This is just a guideline.  You'll want to 
change strumming pattern for the chorus.  Work with timing by listening to song
and playing what's comfortable for you.

E----------------------------------------------------------------|  B    A
down - down - down.up.down.down - down.up.down.down - down.up.down.down.down

Verse 1

E                                            B   A
Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk,

E                                B  A
I didn't mean to call you that.

E                                                B  A
I can't remember what was said or what you threw at me

E                        B A  
Please tell me, please tell me


                        (Chorus: change up strumming)

E             F#m
whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

                  A              B                       E           F#m
My car is in the front yard, and I'm, sleeping with my clothes on,

                       A             B
I came in through the window, last night,

           E              B  A
and your, gone,   gone.


Verse 2

E                                         B A
It's no suprise to me I am my own worst enemy,

E                                             B  A
'Cause every now and then I kick the living shit out of me

E                                             B  A
The smoke alarm is going off and there's a cigarette,

E                       B  A
Still burning, please tell me 


                        (Chorus: change up strumming)

E             F#m
whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

                  A              B                       E           F#m
My car is in the front yard, and I'm, sleeping with my clothes on,

                       A             B
I came in through the window, last night,

           E              B  A
and your, gone,   gone.


[ E - A.B ]  Verse Rhythm: Repeat (this is where the solo is played)


E             F#m
whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

                  A              B                       E           F#m
My car is in the front yard, and I'm, sleeping with my clothes on,

                       A             B
I came in through the window, last night,

E                       F#m
It's no suprise to me I am my own worst enemy

A                           B
'Cause every now and then I kick the living shit out of me

E                       F#m
Can we forget about the things I said When I was drunk

A                 B
I didn't mean to call you that

Outro:
Verse strum pattern

E - B - A   x4 (hold last note.  Feel free to finish off with one more E)




This is really a simple song as far as the music goes. Timing the strumming
and singing simultaneously is the hardest part to get the hang of.
Have fun with this one!

-Blake
