Intro -2x-: B  Eb7  Abm  E

Verse:
B                  Eb7                   Abm                 E
Yeah you look real pretty in your glass house
B                             Eb7                     Abm           E
You probably think you're too good to take the trash out
        B                                      Eb7                 
Are you dumb are you blind 'Cause it's a real fine line
        Abm                 E
Between telling a joke and turning a knife
       Dbm                 E                Gb
Don't wreck my reputation let me wreck my own

Chorus:
     B         Eb7
Step off, step off
             Abm
Yeah, you're getting too close to me 
     E
With all your negativity
B        Eb7
Just get lost
               Abm
Just trying to make a little difference here so
E
Why you gotta interfere?
B                       Eb7                Abm
Just keep climbing that mountain of dirty tricks, yes
    E                B   Eb7     Abm   E
And when you finally get to the top
Step off

Verse:
B                  Eb7              Abm                 E
Screwed everybody over in this town
B                   Eb7                  Abm        E
There ain't nothing between you and the cold hard ground
     B                      Eb7
Keep running your mouth and stretching the truth
         Abm                        E
You just might find a hole in your pair of shoes
    Dbm                      E                Gb
Whatever gets you high will always bring you down

Chorus:
     B         Eb7
Step off, step off
             Abm
Yeah, you're getting too close to me 
     E
With all your negativity
B        Eb7
Just get lost
               Abm
Just trying to make a little difference here so
E
Why you gotta interfere?
B                       Eb7                Abm
Just keep climbing that mountain of dirty tricks, yes
    E                B   Eb7     Abm   E
And when you finally get to the top
Step off

Interlude:
Dbm                    Eb7
Sticks and stones may build a throne
    Abm                 E   Gb
But you'll be up there all alone

Chorus:
     B      Eb7 Abm   E
Step off,    Yeah
     B    Eb7 Abm E
Step off
B                       Eb7                Abm
Just keep climbing that mountain of dirty tricks, yes
    E                B   Eb7     Abm   E
And when you finally get to the top
Step off

  1. I believe it’s “parachute” not, “pair of shoes”:)

    Instead of transposing this song down 4, you can transpose it up 1 and it brings it into a much easier key and sounds great! :)
