i was born a bitter old man who got his heart broken in catalonia, 1936.
                      D                                      Bm

i knew this place wasnít safe for anyone but fascists and republicans and their apologists. 
A              G              D             Em            A                                    
but i swear to god, iím gonna die full of naive optimism; a teenagerís heartbreaking conviction 
G                                                               A

D
i can hear you from a dozen states away 
Bm                                      A                   G                D
shivering through a dope sick morning of no money left and nothing else to steal. 
D                                  Bm                                                  A

but itís only been recently that iíve been willing to live. 
A               G             D                  Em             A                   
and i swear to god, i didnít plan for things to end up this way. 
                            G                    
i had a teenagerís conviction that i would be different. 
         A                                             D

Bridge D Gm x4

D             Bm             G                                                                  
but now livingís a struggle, except when it isnít. (yeah), 
D             Bm                        G
i woke up this morning and i wasnít in prison, 
D                   Bm                 G
but i canít promise that iím far from it. 
                                                   
iíd still kill a man for cigarette, 
D                    Bm               G
but with friends like you, who needs homicide? 
D                         Bm                    G

D       Bm                     G        
come on back now, we need you around. 
D              Bm                      G
that judge, he doesnít know what heís done. 
D          Bm                          G
