Pretty easy song if you just play the chords. This should be a good jumping-off 
point if you want to go all the way and figure out the picking pattern. I'm 
surprised this song hadn't been done already. Oh well.  A great tune by a band we 
didn't get to hear enough of :(

Intro: G (hold until Ooh-oh, you can hear it change) Am (G D Em 2x)


G                          D
Up from the basement to my best friend's farm
            Em
Where we'll work so hard, we can do no harm
      G                 D
We'll till the land and duck our debts
     Em
Underneath soft sun, chewing Nicorette

G         D           Em   G
This will be a better year
          D           Em
This will be a better year

G                    D
Make a little money, take a lot of shit
Em
Feel real bad, then get over it

G         D           Em
This will be a better year

C
Oh I keep pushing boulders
G
I stay game till sun'll shake my shoulders
C
Oh, I keep feeling older
G
I stay game, stay game, stay game

G                         D
The East Coast kids, man, we just don't know
        Em
Singing wait, wait, stop, drop me, go, go, go
        G                      D
But I'm taken by the hand to a blue pay phone
       Em
We can break blue laws with our skin and bones

            G                              D
And now I'm back in the city, I'm counting frick frick frick
         Em
Heard of milk great things, speaking soft and thick
             G                      D
He said, "If life gives you lemons, then thus god bade.
         Em
So put a little bit of bitter in your pink lemonade"

      C                       Cmaj7
I'm sick of thee sheep, I'm sick of thou shepherd
        G
Sick of dressing like a human when I'm feeling like a leopard
    C                      Cmaj7
I'm sick of slow rock, I'm sick of quick quips
        G                                                        C
Sick of holding on to nothing when I just want to hold your hips

G         D           Em   G
This will be a better year
          D           Em
This will be a better year

G                    D
Make a little money, take a lot of shit
Em
Feel real bad, then get over it

G         D           Em
This will be a better year

C
Oh I keep pushing boulders
G
I stay game till sun'll shake my shoulders
C
Oh, I keep feeling older
G                                 Am
I stay game, stay game, stay game


Then the nah-nahh part uses the C, Cmaj7, G pattern - you can work it out
easily if you listen to the song.
