[Verse]
Am        D Am D  Am         D Am D
I wanted her,     I wanted her
    Am              D     Am              D
But she doesn't like  the life that I lead
Am              D    Am              D
She doesn't like the life that I lead
Am               D Am               D
Doesn't like sand  stuck on her feet
   Am            D Am          D
Or sitting around  smoking weed
Am               D      Am            D
I must seem more like a friend in need


[Pre-Chorus]
      D                         G
And I boast that it is meant to be but in all honesty


[Chorus]
F G F
G              D        C  F
I don't have a hope in hell
F               G       F G  D   C F
I'm happy just to watch her  move     And in all honesty

F G F
G              D        C  F
I don't have a hope in hell
F               G       F G  D   C F
I'm happy just to watch her  move

These patterns remain the same for the following choruses and verse followed by the 
outro which is the same as the intro.
