Intro:   

Am Am7add11 Am Am7add11 Am Am7add11 } } x 2
C/G Csus2add6/G C/G Csus2add6/G C/G Csus2add6/G }
Am Am7add11 Am Amaddb13 Am } } x 2
C/G Csus2add6/G C/G Cadd11/G C/G } (Much easier than the chords names suggest. See the chord definitions below. It's pretty much just Am to C x 4, but you lift your 2nd and 3rd finger off the Am to make the Am7add11 and for C/G to Csus2add6/G, move your 2nd finger from the 4th string 2nd fret to the 3rd string 2nd fret, then back then open 4th for a Csus2/G. When the strumming gets a little more enthusiastic you may hit the 6th string occasionally in which case the Am and Am7add11 would suffix /E as the bass note, but this is a song for raucous enjoyment rather than worrying about the technicalities of what chords you're playing! Listen for the strumming pattern.) Verse 1:
AmWeep for yourself, my man,
C/Gyou'll never be what is in your heart.
AmWeep little lion man,
C/Gyou're not as brave as you were at the start.
GRate yourself and rake yourself,
F Fmaj7b5/E Am7add11 C/Gtake all the courage you have left.
GWasted on fixing all the
F Fmaj7b5/E Am7add11 C/Gproblems that you made in your own head.
Chorus 1: (1 strum on each Am, F and C/G)
Am F C/GBut it was not your fault but mine,
Am F C/Gand it was your heart on the line.
Am F C/GI really fucked it up this time,
G Gadd9didn't I, my dear?
G AmDidn't I, my dear?

AmTremble for yourself my man,
C/Gyou know that you have seen this all before.
AmTremble little lion man,
C/Gyou'll never settle any of your scores.
GYour grace is wasted in your face,
F Fmaj7b5/E Am7add11 C/Gyour boldness stands alone among the wreck.
GLearn from your mother or else
