Capo IV

Am             G                     F
You, with your words like knives and swords

And weapons that you use against me
Am        G                 F
You, have knocked me off my feet again

Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Am             G                     F
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board

Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Am   G                     F
You, pickin' on the weaker man

G
 Well you can take me down
C               F      G
 with just one single blow
         F~
But you don't know, what you don't know...

C       G       Am                  F
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
    C          G                F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
C       G       Am                      F
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
    C          G                F......
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
  ......           C         G
Why you gotta be so mean?

Am             G
You, with your swithching sides and
     F
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Am        G              F
You, have pointed out my flaws again

As if I don't already see them
Am          G
I walk with my head down
          F
Tryin' to block you out

'Cause I never impress you
Am     G           F
I just wanna feel okay again

G
I bet you got pushed around
C           F        G
Somebody made you cold
G
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
F
You can't lead me down that road
        F
And you don't know what you don't know

C       G       Am                  F
Someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
    C          G                F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
C       G       Am                      F
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
    C          G                F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   C         C~   G     F
Why you gotta be so mean?


          G
And I can see you years from now in a bar
C               F            G
 Talkin' over a football game
G
With that same big loud opinion
C            F        G
But no one's listening
G
Washed up and ranting about the
  C~           G~         F~
Same old   bitter   things
G                                 C  G     F
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I can't sing
                  C    G  Am
But all you are is mean
F              C            G          Am
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
    F                 C         G         Am        F
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

C       G       Am                  F
But someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
    C          G                F      F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah--ah
C       G       Am                      F
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
    C          G                F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
F                   C
Why you gotta be so...Someday
G       Am                 F
I'll be livin in a big ol' city (why ya gotta be so mean)
    C          G                F
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (why ya gotta be so mean)
C       G       Am                      F
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me (why ya gotta be so mean)
    C     G                  F~
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                     C~
Why you gotta be so mean?
