Tune half a step down


6/8 time


Play bar chords in the choruses and the bridge.



Intro:

Start with just sliding between 3 and 7 on the low E and then kick 
into a strumming pattern with these things:

|------0------0----------|
|------0------0----------|
|------4------7----------|
|------0------0----------|
|------x------x----------|
|------3------7----------|

Then go back into the sliding pattern using the above chords.



Verse:

G         C                       G
My friend Marcus, he sleeps in my basement

C                            G
His father touched more than spirit

C                 G
Now he can hardly sleep 

(instead of a C here, play the 2nd and 3rd frets on the a string)
Sleep



Repeat intro starting from the strumming pattern



G       C                          G
I don't give a good shit if you're lonesome

C                          G
I think that you should go home, son

C                      G
Find a father and your mean

(2nd and 3rd frets on the a string)
-ing



Chorus:

G         Bm           C                G   F#

Now I believe you mean everything

Now I believe you mean everything



Verse:

G         C                     G
My friend Marcus, he works on a train set

C                            G
And I still can't move on my broke track

C                       G
He's helping me find my meaning

Now I believe you mean everything

It's funny how many don't know

How many of us don't have homes
