  anyone     remember Tony  . . . . . . . . etc.

D/G        C/G       G
Does anyone remember Tony?

         D/G                 C/G                G
He was a quiet boy, a little overweight, he had breasts like a girl

D/G               C/G          G
When I wasn't too busy feeling lonely

D/G                C/G     G                D/G       C/G    G
I'd stare over his shoulder at a map of the world

          D/G              C/G         G
He always finished all his homework

D/G                C/G          G
Raised his hand in homeroom

D/G            C/G          G
For the morning attendance

       D/G               C/G             G
And to pledge allegiance to the gloom

Em    D             C          G
Hey Tony, what's so good about dying

  Em            D          C        G
I think I might do a little dying today

Em            D               C             G
Looked in the mirror saw that little faggot staring back at him

Em           D       C             G
Pulled out a gun and blew himself away

I hated every day of high school
Funny, I guess you did too
Funny how I never knew
There I was sitting right behind you
They wrote it in the local rag
Death comes to the local fag
I guess you finally stopped believing that any hope would ever find you
I knew that story, I was sitting right behind you

Hey Tony, what's so good about dying?
I think I might do a little dying today
He looked in the mirror, saw that little faggot staring back at him
Pulled out a gun, and blew himself away
