Nevershoutnever - The Past chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Ok so this is my first tab, but its 100% correct and none of the other tabs are.
I named the chord on every heavy strum (down beat) Mr. Drew gives in the original recording
and I also tabbed out the guitar and keyboard intro to the bridge.
So heregoesnothin!

C(4x)


    C                      C
And I sing songs about the past.
C                          C
How I was raised and I was thrown out on my ass,
              F           F
Cause I didn't care.
               C          C
About going to school.


    C                     C
And I saw the look in her eyes.
   C                          C                             F
My mother nearly cried when I told her that I had wanted to go,
                 C            C
Just to prove them wrong.


          Am                             F
I've been smoking cigarettes since I was only fourteen,
        G                        Am               F           C(4x)
Just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me.


    C                     C
And I sing songs about my friends.
    C                   C                           F           F
The way we grew up, and all the lose ends we used to laugh,
                             C(2x)
Cause we didn't give a damn.


    C                      C
And I saw the look in my brother's eyes,
       C                         C                   F          F
When I told him I was leaving he couldn't help but despise me.
                         C
He's wanted out his whole life.


          Am                            F
I've been smoking the green since I was merely sixteen,
          G                      Am               F             C(4x)
Just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me.


    C                      C
And I sing songs about the past...

                                                        (F)       Am
