Green Day - Armatage Shanks Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
For me, this is one of Green Day's most relatable songs.
This is super easy to play, so have fun with it!

Billie Joe Armstrong said about this song, "When I wrote that song it was right before
Dookie came out, and I was really at odds with myself. I was like, man, do I really want
to do this? A lot of the time I was thinking about suicide, how it's so easy to kill 
yourself, but so hard to stay alive. I was in a break-up with my then-girlfriend, a total,
raving punk rocker who didn't approve of me being on a major label. She moved down to 
Ecuador, saying she couldn't live in a world with McDonald's and such. It was fucking me 
up pretty bad."


G                   C
Stranded...lost inside myself
              F
My own worst friend
                    D
And my own closest enemy


G              C
I'm branded...maladjusted
        F
Never trusted anyone
             D
Let alone myself


C         G
I must insist
     D         G
On being a pessimist
        C           G          D
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind


G               C
Elected the rejected
F                          D
I perfect the science of the idiot


G                   C
No meaning and no healing
F                         D
Self loathing freak and introverted deviot

C         G
I must insist
     D         G
On being a pessimist
        C           G          D
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind

C            G
I'm gettin' pissed
        D           G
I'm a worthless pessimist
        C            G          D
I'm a loner in a claustrophobic mind
