Chorus:
    G                    C
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Em           D
Will you buy me a house of gold?

And when your father turns to stone,

Will you take care of me?"

I will make you
Am       Fm            C

I'll put you on the map

I'll cure you of disease

Verse:
      G             C
Let's say we up and left this town
     Em               D
And turned our future upside-down

We'll make pretend that you and me

Lived ever after, happily

Verse:
    G                  C
And since we know that dreams are dead
    Em                  D
And life turns plans up on their head

I will plan to be a bum
   G      D       G
So I just might become someone

  1. Hey! so instead of all of the harder notes for beginners, I found that using C F Am G7 and G worked best throughout the song and for the Bridges this is what I came up with:

    F G7
    I will make you Queen,

    Am G7
    Of everything you see,
    F
    I’ll put you on the map
    G7
    I’ll cure you of disease,

    Strum pattern for bridge is just down, and 1 strum per note

    Strum pattern for the rest of the song is down, down, up, down, down, for the whole song

    Hope this helps!
