Intro:
Ebm   Ab    Ebm   Bb
Cuckoo

Verse:
Ebm               Gb      Db      Ebm  Gb   Db
Ten silver spoons coming after me
Ebm           Gb        Db        Ebm  Gb   Db
One life with one dream on repeat
Ebm            Gb     Db         Ebm  Gb   Db
I'll escape if I try hard enough
    Ebm          Gb     Db             Ebm  Gb   Db
Till King of the Jungle calls my bluff

Pre-Chorus:
Ebm
    Oh Lord
Ab             Gb   Bb
   I have been told
Ebm            Ab         Gb       Bb
   That I must take the unforsaken road

Chorus:
Ebm       Ab          Gb  Bb
There's a fork in the road
Ebm           Ab   Gb  Bb
I'll do as as I am told
      Ebm         Ab          Gb          Bb
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know
Ebm Ab Gb    Bb      Ebm
Who         I want to be

Ebm   Ab    Ebm   Bb
      Cuckoo

Verse -same as first-:
You say Y-E-S to everything
Will that guarantee you a win?
Do you think you will be good enough
To love others and to be loved?

Oh Lord
Now I can see
The cutlery will keep on chasing me

There's a fork in the road
I'll do as as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know
Who I want to be


   Bb
We are the spoons, metal-ly mean
   Ebm
We scooped our way into your dreams
   Gb
To knock the knives out bloody cold
    Bb                           Ebm
And lead you down the unforsaken road

Interlude:
    Ab  Gb  Bb
    Ebm Ab Gb Bb

Ebm       Ab          Gb  Bb
There's a fork in the road
Ebm           Ab   Gb  Bb
I'll do as as I am told
      Ebm         Ab          Gb          Bb
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know
Ebm Ab Gb    Bb      Ebm
Who         I want to be

Cuckoo

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
