Dbm             B                     A
You, with your words like knives and swords
- A -
And weapons that you use against me 
Dbm        B                 A
You, have knocked me off my feet again
- A -
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Dbm             B                     A
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
- A -
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Dbm   B                     A
You, pickin' on the weaker man


B                        E               A      B
 Well you can take me down with just one single blow
    A -once
But you don't know, what you don't know...


E       B       A                 
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city 
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E       B       A                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    E          B                A      Stop
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   E         E -once
Why you gotta be so mean?


Dbm             B                                                  
You, with your swithching sides and
     A                       
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Dbm        B              A                                                               
You, have pointed out my flaws again
       -stop                                                 
As if I don't already see them
Dbm          B                                          
I walk with my head down
          A                                                     
Tryin' to block you out 
         A
'Cause I never impress you
Dbm     B           A                                                               
I just wanna feel okay again


B                                                            
I bet you got pushed around
E        A        B                                        
Somebody made you cold
- B -                                                                                          
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
A
You can't lead me down that road
                   A -stop                                                 
And you don't know what you don't know


E       B       A                
Someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city 
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E       B       A                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   E       E -once  B       A 
Why you gotta be so mean?


          B
And I can see you years from now in a bar
E               A            B
 Talkin' over a football game
- B -
With that same big loud opinion
E            A        B
But no one's listening
- B -
Washed up and ranting about the 
E   once   B        A      
Same old   bitter   things
B                                 E  B     A   
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I  can't sing
-no chord         E    B  Dbm  
But all you are is mean
A              E            B          Dbm
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
    A                 E         B         Dbm        A
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean


- Palm mute -
    E       B       A                
But someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city 
    E          B                A      A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean,  yeah--ah
E       B       A                    
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me 
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
- A -                   E
Why you gotta be so...Someday
B       A               
I'll be livin in a big ol' city - why ya gotta be so mean -
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean - why ya gotta be so mean -
E       B       A                   
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me - why ya gotta be so mean -
    E   once   B                A 
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   E 
Why you gotta be so  mean?

Does anyone know a substitute chord for e? That one is difficult for me because i have small fingers

hi
Guest
hi

you can try to bar the fourth fret and and place your pinky on the seventh fret of the A string, its an alternate version of the E chord
