Verse:
            D
It was the roar of the crowd that gave me heartache to sing
          Bm7
It was a lie when they smiled and said you won't feel a thing
           G
And as we ran from the cops
                             A     A  Bbb7
We laughed so hard it would sting

Pre-Chorus:
Bm        Em
If I'm so wrong
            A                D  A
How can you listen all night long?
Bm                 G
Now will it matter after I'm gone?
            A             A         A 
Because you never learn a goddamned thing

Chorus:
              D
You're just a sad song
      
With nothing to say
        Bm
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
           Em
And if you think that I'm wrong
                            A
This never meant nothing to ya

Verse -same as first-:
I spent my high school career spit on and shoved to agree
So I could watch all my heroes 
sell a car on TV
Bring out the old guillotine
We'll show them what we all mean

Pre-Chorus:
Bm        Em
If I'm so wrong
            A                D  A
How can you listen all night long?
Bm                 G
Now will it matter after I'm gone?
            A             A         A 
Because you never learn a goddamned thing

Chorus:
              D
You're just a sad song
      
With nothing to say
        Bm
About a lifelong wait for a hospital stay
           Em
And if you think that I'm wrong
                            A
This never meant nothing to ya

   D
So go
   Bb
Go away
     D
Just run
    A   
Run away
                  Bm
But where did you run to?
             A
Where did you hide?
               G
Go find another way
          A
Price you pay

Interlude -pick or strum-:

  1. I think that the tab is a bit easier to play this way
    A—5–5–5———————————
    E——5–5–5–3—3–3–3–5–3–
    C————————6–6—6———6
    G————————————————

  2. D
    Well I was there on the day
    D
    They sold the cause for the queen,
    Bm
    And when the lights all went out
    Bm
    We watched our lives on the screen
    G
    I hate the ending myself,
    A D
    But it started with an alright scene

  3. I’m having trouble with this because this ad keeps scrolling the screen down to a video and I can’t even read the chords and im getting really frustrated.

  4. Dead Winter

    This how I do the tab…
    xA|-3-3-3————-
    xE|–3-3-3-3-2-3-5-3-2
    xC|——————–
    xG|——————–

    At least this is how i do it…

  5. They didn’t add the first verse because the tab is there first verse. If you see at the top it says pluck 2 times, one time for the intro and one time for the verse. The actual song plucks during the first verse, and then the chords come out at the second verse.

  6. Abbydabbydoo2903

    add the first verse please!!!!!

  7. Missing the first half of the chorus!!!

  8. What does the strumming notes at the start mean? I can’t figure it out

    • Do you mean the tabs? Pretty much, each line corresponds with a string and each number corrosponds with a fret. There are a few meant to be played at once, but sometimes you can ifnore one or the other. As for the chords above, I’m not quite sure, it seems like you may be able to strum those chords as an intro instead? But I’m not sure how that sounds.

  9. @poppycsmith @skellydun It was also difficult for me to read the tab so I get my own version listening to the original song. Hope you like it and help.
    xA|-5—0-5 0—5——————————————————————|
    xE|———————————5—3—2—3—2—3—2-3-5-3-2|
    xC|————————————————————————————————|
    xG|————————————————————————————————|

  10. This is missing the first half of verse one

  11. @poppycsmith I too was confused by the tab part of the song, but I tried making it a bit simpler, but it still sounds the same, so here it goes
    xA|-5—5—5———-|
    xE|—5—5—5—3—2—3—5—3—2-|
    xC|——————–
    xG|———————-|

  12. poppycsmith

    please someone help with the tabs? i cant read them at all theyre so confusing and everything ive googles doesnt explain how to play this song, why is there chords just above the tab and why doesnt any of it play properly when i do it?

    • So, the first line is the farthest line away from you, and the last line that the tab show is the line closest to you. The number shows which fret you put your finger in, and the line the number is on shows what line to place the finger on. For example there’s a 3 on the second line, pluck the second line with your finger on fret 3. The order of the plucking goes from left to right, so the first number you see is the first note. If 2 numbers are on top of eachother, it means to pluck both of them at the same time. The chords mean nothing, it’s just there if you want to play them instead of the tab. The tab here is honestly a good tab once you learn it, it sounds just like the song. I hope I helped :3
