Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
     So I just saw the "Mean" music video and the beginning verse is the
    Bm instead of D so it's been switched:) The Bm/G in the chorus is now
    gone as well, it's just a G all the way through (which is easier too!)
    Taylor plays with no capo in the video and plays with a capo on 4
    when playing live.  IF you want to transpose this up or down 2 half         
    steps, go for it:) just click the transpose button above and move or
    lose the capo! Also I'm keeping the Asus4 in the chorus, but just play 
    an A if you want;) 
                                         

W/ Capo on 2


[Verse]

Bm             A                     G
You, with your words like knives and swords
(G)
And weapons that you use against me 
Bm        A                 G
You, have knocked me off my feet again
(G)
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Bm             A                     G
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
(G)
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Bm   A                     G
You, pickin' on the weaker man


[Pre-Chorus]

A                        D               G      A
 Well you can take me down with just one single blow
    G -once
But you don't know, what you don't know...


[Chorus]

D       Asus4   G                 
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D       Asus4   G                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          Asus4            G......Stop
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
  ......           D      C D -once
Why you gotta be so mean?


[Verse]

Bm             A                                                  
You, with your switching sides and
     G                       
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Bm        A              G                                                               
You, have pointed out my flaws again
       -stop                                                 
As if I don't already see them
Bm          A                                          
I walk with my head down
          G                                                     
Tryin' to block you out 
         G
'Cause I never impress you
Bm     A           G                                                               
I just wanna feel okay again


[Pre-Chorus 2]

A                                                            
I bet you got pushed around
D        G        A                                        
Somebody made you cold
(A)                                                                                          
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
G
You can't lead me down that road
                   G -stop                                                 
And you don't know what you don't know


[Chorus]

D       Asus4   G                
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D       Asus4   G                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   D     C D   A   G 
Why you gotta be so mean?


[Bridge]

          A
And I can see you years from now in a bar
D               G            A
 Talkin' over a football game
(A)
With that same big loud opinion
D            G        A
But no one's listening
(A)
Washed up and ranting about the 
D* *once   A*       G*     
Same old   bitter   things
A                                 D* A*    G*  
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I  can't sing
-no chord         D    A  Bm  
But all you are is mean
G              D            A          Bm
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
    G                 D         A         Bm        G
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean


[Chorus]

(*Palm mute*)
    D*      Asus4*  G*               
But someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    D*         Asus4*           G*     G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean,  yeah--ah
D       Asus4   G                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(G)                   D
Why you gotta be so...Someday
Asus4   G               
I'll be livin in a big ol' city (why ya gotta be so mean)
    D          Asus4            G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (why ya gotta be so mean)
D       Asus4   G                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me (why ya gotta be so mean)
    D* *once   Asus4*           G*
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   D*
Why you gotta be so  mean?
