      Gb                      Ebm
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
    Abm   Abm          B         Db
But heaven knows I'm miserable now

I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
    Abm   Abm         B          Db
And heaven knows I'm miserable now


Gb          B Db
In my life
Gb                           B      Db
Why do I give valuable time
   Gb                Gb      Gb     Gb        B    Db  
To people who don't care if   I   live or die ?

   Gb                Ebm
Two lovers entwined pass me by

         Gb                  Ebm
What she asked of me at the end of the day
 Abm     Abm          B       Db
Caligula would have blushed
           Gb                      Ebm
"Oh, you've been in the house too long" she said
    Abm  Abm               B   Db
And  I     na - turally fled


Gb          B Db
In my life
Gb        B      Db
Why do I smile
   Gb              Gb    Gb     Gb        B    Db     
At people who I'd much rather kick in the  eye ?

Why do I give valuable time

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.
