Intro: (quickly slide the Gb to G, hit G, then A- upstroke)

Gb/G A-   Gb/G A-   Gb/G A-   Gb/G A-


       Gb/G A-        Gb/G A-   Gb/G A-   Gb/G A-   Gb/G A-
I've got every reason on earth to be mad,       'cause I've 

            Gb/G A-       D7          C7
Just lost the only girl I had.     If I could get my way,

                                      G          D
I'd get myself locked up today, but I can't so I cry 

 G
instead.

          Gb/G A-                   Gb/G A-        Gb/G A-
I've got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet, 

Gb/G A-    Gb/G A-       Gb/G A-        D7       C7            
          I can't talk to people that I meet. If I could 

                                                    G
see you now, I'd try to make you sad somehow, but I can't

     D      G
so I cry instead.





Chorus
              Bm(bar)                              A        
Don't want to cry when there's people there, I get shy when

                         D(bar)                          
They start to stare, I'm gonna hide myself away, hay;

    Em(bar)        A(bar)   Dm(bar)
But I'll come back again someday.

        Gb/G A-         Gb/G A-       Gb/G A-  Gb/G A-
And when I do you'd better hide all the girls,    

 Gb/G A-          Gb/G A-                   D7
I'm gonna break their hearts all 'round the world.      

     C7
Yes, I'm gonna break them in two, and show you what your 

                         G         D     G
loving man can do, until then I'll cry instead.


Repeat Chorus

              Bm(bar)                              A
Don't want to cry when there's people there, I get shy when

                         D(bar)
They start to stare, I'm gonna hide myself away, hay;

    Em(bar)        A(bar)   Dm(bar)
But I'll come back again someday.


        Gb/G A-         Gb/G A-       Gb/G A-    Gb/G A-
And when I do you'd better hide all the girls,    

 Gb/G A-           Gb/G A-                  D7              
I'm gonna Break their hearts all 'round the world.      

     C7
Yes, I'm gonna break them in two, and show you what your 

                         G         D      G
loving man can do, until then I'll cry instead.

OK folks, this is it ! I would switch that Dm to a D7, sounds better to me, but the rest is rock solid. One of their greatest, in my opinion, but there are so many... too many to list.
