What We Worked For

Against Me

 AEDA

 A
 Lost the confidence to write a song
 E
So I found three simple chords

And held them together with my weak voice
 D
On an out of tune guitar
 A
My father gave to me     

 E
And may Elvis turn in his grave
 DA
And Les Paul curse my dirty calloused fingers              
 E
And may the likes of this song never make

One fucking dollar
 D
Leave it for a demo tape    
 A
To be played until it's broken   
 E
And remembered only for what it was        

 D
Though we gave 'em hell      
 A
Though we gave 'em hell      
 E
Though we gave 'em hell      
(2x)

 AE
 To my friends and enemies who could have been anything
 D
Titans and heroes who found survival in cause and effect
 A
Behind counters    

Behind windows
 E
Striving just    

 D
To be people with bitter ideals of justice
 ED
Do we only need to keep working because it pays rent?             
 A
 E
Sleeping under plastic stars glued to the ceiling
 DA
Muscles burning alcohol and nicotine             
 E
Every morning            

 D
But we gave 'em hell       
 A
But we gave 'em hell       
 E
But we gave 'em hell       
(2x)

 A
There's a height beyond skyscrapers
 ED
There's a distance beyond the freeway         
 AE
More than pictures in a magazine        
 D
More than tragedy in a rock and roll song
 E
It's more than actions you know are safe to make
 DA
It's more than money could ever buy      

 E
Are we living to work and die in American cities?
 DA
And working to live and die in American cities,
E D A E (let ring)
And dying for what we worked.
