[INTRO]
D G A G

D                                      G                           A   G
i was born a bitter old man who got his heart broken in catalonia, 1936.
                      D                                      G
i haven’t felt right since, so i gave up on life before i arrived. 
                                             A                            G             D
i knew this place wasn’t safe for anyone but fascists and republicans and their apologists. 
A              G              D             Em            A                                    
but i swear to god, i’m gonna die full of naive optimism; a teenager’s heartbreaking conviction 
G                                                               A 
that things can be different. oh yeah, things are gonna be real different when we’re finished
        D
 around here. 

         Em            G      A
i always wanted to die young. 
D        Em            G      A
i always wanted to die young. 
D        Em            G      
i always wanted to die young; 

           A             Em                                        D G A G
now i feel younger every day, and i just hope i die younger than i am. 
D
i can hear you from a dozen states away 
G                                      A                   G                D
shivering through a dope sick morning of no money left and nothing else to steal. 
D                                  G                                                  A
lord only knows that i’ve had my share, because there were years when i was ready to die, 
                  G                        D
but it’s only been recently that i’ve been willing to live. 
A               G             D                  Em             A                   
and i swear to god, i didn’t plan for things to end up this way. 
                            G                    
i had a teenager’s conviction that i would be different. 
         A                                             D
oh yeah, i was gonna be real different than the person i became. 

         Em            G      A
i always wanted to die young. 
D        Em            G      A
i always wanted to die young. 
D        Em            G      
i always wanted to die young; 

           A             Em                                        D G A G
now i feel younger every day, and i just hope i die younger than i am.  
D             A             G                                                                  
but now living’s a struggle, except when it isn’t. (yeah), 
D             A                         G
i woke up this morning and i wasn’t in prison, 
D                   A                 G
but i can’t promise that i’m far from it. 
                                                   
i’d still kill a man for cigarette, 
D                    A               G
but with friends like you, who needs homicide? 
D                         A                    G                           
so this song goes out to all our homies locked down. 
D       A                     G        
come on back now, we need you around. 
D              A                      G
that judge, he doesn’t know what he’s done. 
D          A                          G
no, judges never know the things they do. how could they?

Instead of G-D-A-G it's D-Bm-A-G
Other than that pretty spot on. Thanks!

After the second chorus in the bridge to "but now living's a struggle" I'm pretty sure he uses a Gm instead of G.

Anyways, thanks for the tab, it helped a lot.
