VERSE 1 (see below for guitar interlude played during verse)
          G#
Well I thought about the army
            D#m         
Dad said, "Son you're fucking high"
        C#                                               G#
And I thought, yeah there's a first for everything
                        
So I took my old man's advice, three sad semesters
        D#m              
It was only fifteen grand 
          C#
spent in bed, I thought about the army
G#                  C#/F            
I dropped out and joined a band instead


CHORUS (piano solo)
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
D#m  A#m  G#maj7


VERSE 2 (same as verse 1 except for Fm chord)
Grew a moustache and a mullet   
Got a job at chick-fillet
Citing artistic differences 
the band broke up in May
        Fm             
And in June reformed without me
And they got a different name
I nuked another grandma's apple pie
And hung my head in shame, no

CHORUS (listen to song for the arrangement of the chords)
D#m  A#m  G#maj7
Been thinking a lot today

D#m  A#m  G#maj7
Been thinking a lot today

BRIDGE
F#  C#                       G#
Oh  Oh Think I'll write a screenplay
F#  C#                          G#
Oh  Oh Think I'll take you to LA
F#  C#                         Cm
Oh Oh  Think I'll get it done yesterday

HORN INTERLUDE ("") G# D#m C# G# G# D#m C# G# VERSE 3 (same chords as previous verse) In this time of introspection On the eve of my election I say to my reflection God please spare me more rejection 'Cause my peers, they criticize me And my ex-wives all despise me Try to put it all behind me But my redneck past is nipping at my heels CHORUS (same as previous chorus) ENDING F#maj7 I thought about A# G#maj7 the army CHORDS (these are all the chords used in the song.
