Db
Ruffled hair, a lose shoestring
Bbm
Covered arms and a nose rings
Gb                    Ab
He’s just misguided I think
Db
He goes out till the lights up
Bbm
He doesn’t care for the day mmm
Gb                        Ab
He doesn’t know what he’s worth

Db
He’s self confessed and a little obsessed
Bbm
Gets money from his parents to try and impress
Gb                                 Ab
I guess that’s adolescence at it’s best
Db
He’s never put to the test but still distressed
Bbm
And he keeps a bottle inside his vest
Gb                                 Ab
I guess that’s adolescence at it’s best

Db
Hangs about at the skateparks, 
Bbm
with is lighter and his pack of cards
Gb                  Ab
He knows he’s going nowhere
Db
Maybe if life wasn’t so hard,
Bbm
 if he got off to a better start
Gb           Ab
He’d be somewhere

Db
He’s self confessed and a little obsessed

I’ll keep calm and carry on whilst he’s drunk all night long
Bbm                                       Gb
He’ll sit with guitar and play another song
                    Ab
Then he’ll give me a phone
        Db
Another five am call, sitting worried in my hall
Bbm                                            Gb
Will he come home tonight before it gets light?
          Ab
I guess he might

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

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.
