Intro:
F  C


Verse 1:
C            Cmaj9           Am
went back to clean my closet out
    G             F                  G                C
the folks finally decided to try and sell the house
        Cmaj9           Am         G                F
and the bands on all my shirts had all since broken up or 
 G                        F
adopted a more commercial sound
        G            Am
i can't blame them I guess
      F                G     C         G    F
still threw 'em in the trash don't you ever wish ...


Chorus 1:
        C  Cmaj9  F
our generation
                    C  Cmaj9   F
made anything worth saving
                 C  Cmaj9   Am   G
made anything to last
       F                  C          Am   G
longer than the life of a match


Verse 2:
C      Cmaj9            Am
one by one the old gang crumbled
G                  F                G         C
pressed out of the east bay, exiled to l.a.
         Cmaj9       Am         G              F
where we waited on a drummer to show up at the strip club
       G                          F
in the strip mall after his other gig
     G                  Am
some kid with a million hits
      F         G
whose name i forget
    C         G    F
and don't you ever wish ...


Chorus 2:
        C  Cmaj9  F
our generation
                    C  Cmaj9   F
made anything worth saving
                 C  Cmaj9   Am   G
made anything to last
       F                  Am    C   G
longer than the life of a match


Solo:
D   Dmaj9   Bm  A  G  A (2x)

G


Verse 3:
  A                  Bm          
i guess i just don't get
           G         A
what makes kanye the best
    D         A    G
but don't you ever wish

that the backing tracks would crash
        C           Cmaj9              Am
and the crowd would look up from their phones
   G               F            G               C
to find out if the singer could sing a note
   Cmaj9                 Am   G               F
or better yet if what he said gave a voice to feelings
         G                    F
i didn't know myself how to express
  G            Am
i get it now i guess
              F  G   C   G       F
we're all frustrated and we just wish


Chrous 3:
        C  Cmaj9  F
our generation
                C  Cmaj9   F
had anything worth saying
                 C  Cmaj9   Am   G
made anything to last
       F 
longer than the life of a match

yeah don't you ever wish


        C  Cmaj9  F
our generation
                C  Cmaj9   F
made anything worth saving
                 C  Cmaj9   Am   G
made anything to last
       F 
longer than the life of a match

yeah
