Swingin Utters - A Promise To Distinction chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
One of my favorite songs that I've been playing for years but have never seen a tab for 
on the internet...

When I post this tab, the chords don't line up with the words anymore, and quite frankly 
I'm not going to fuck around with it and fix it.  you can figure it out.

This tab isn't perfect but I was hoping to just throw it up and see if people add to it.

INTRO

G
Once I was younger than
          C                           G
The youngest of fragile minds
                                   C
I ate the day with bad manners
                             G
Then spit out the rind

        Em                     G
And mother, mother told me
     Em                      D
As I looked to the sky
Em                      G                  C             D
Yes my mother told me, "my dear son,
                          G
You're not the one"


G                       C                   G
I flew home when I was just 21
                                        C                   G
Young enough to be the father of someone
                   C                                      G
I've got a conch pissed with conch republic rum

My father by my side, teary-eyed, he said:

Em            G              C                 D
"Son, by God, what I could have done,
Em              G
And you're just like me
                  C                    D
You can, really put 'em down
C             D                    G
If I was in your place, I'd stay, have fun"
C         D                      G
               But I'm not the one

G                       C
Now I'm sittin' here
                         G
Haggling over sums
                              C
Money made by someone else
    G                     C
To me, it don't belong
G                           C
I toss a smile to the mighty boss
G              C
He's my God
G                  C
But I'm a bit backwards
        G                            C
And I know he's just a fuckin' dog

Em                             G
And mother, mother told me,
Em                        D
As I looked to the sky
Em           G                  C                  D
Yes my mother told me my dear son
                          G         C
"You're not the one"
                        G          C
"you're not the one"
                      G           C
You're not the one"
                       G            C
You're not the one"
