Chorus:

Am           Em
  There's no hole in my head
G                    D
  Accusation: I just ain't the family type
Am                  Em
  Falling short and you've got better plans
G                   D
  Escape artist and you just undermine

Your father tried to knock some sense into me

Parenthood was a belt buckle to him

Excellent tab for an excellent song! You've got most of the main parts of the song in there, and the other little lead lines are pretty easy to figure out as they are pretty similar to the other parts. Nice work!!
