Tuning: Standard (EADgbe)

Here's a great tune by the Violent Femmes :)

Intro
A D A D A D E

A                   D
I'm gnawing on the knowledge
A                 D
That I have been burnt
        A                   D
And I'm learning things that I
        A         D
Should've already learnt
A               D
Everyone I ever knew
A               D
Was so kind and coy
A            D
I was with a girl
            A                 D        
But it felt like I was with a boy

A
I can't even remember
D
If we were lovers
   A                E
Or if I just wanted to
      A
But I held her in my arms
  D
I held her in my arms
  A
I held her in my arms
              E
But it wasn't you

Repeat Intro

A           D
I will not kill
    A                D
The one thing that I love
A                D
In this world of wreckage
A        D
I look above
A        D
Help me Lord
A            D
Help me understand
A                 D
What it means to be a boy
A                 D
What it means to be a man
