A Song For The Metalheads  Butch Walker

[G]  [C]  [D]                                 
press the [G]tape re[Em7]corder let's get this [C]all down real [D]fast
before the [G]insignificant [Em7]thought go[C]es by    [D]
there's [G]one more[Em7] slow song left to [C]write for the [D]record
[G]make all the [Em7]metal heads [C]cry   [D]

throw [G]rocks but not [Em7]rocking and [C]stand there just [D]mocking
with [G]hands in their [Em7]armpits that [C]they'll later [D]smell
when you [C]live in the [Bm]past there's one [C]thing that will [Em7]last
it's [C]resentment that [D]time won't sit [G]still  [G]

the record [G]business is [Em7]fucked and [C]it's kinda [D]funny
it'll [G]separate a [Em7]boy from a [C]man   [D]
you can [G]buy every [Em7]copy of your [C]record with your [D]money
but [G]you'd be [Em7]your only [C]fan  [D]

if there's [G]one thing my [Em7]father said [C]when he was [D]younger
to a [G]kid with a [Em7]mullet that [C]looked like his [D]son
to [C]want and to [Bm]try is the [C]difference [Em7]why
some [C]people [D]will walk and som[G]e run . .[G] .thank you dad

sharpen [G]up all your [Em7]pencils cause [C]class will come [D]early
there's [G]so much you [Em7]thought that you [C]knew     [D]
while the [G]b list ce[Em7]lebrities all [C]pay for the [D]fame
they'll [G]soak up what's [Em7]left of the [C]pool  [D]

while a [G]kid in the [Em7]corner [C]becomes a [D]savant
no [G]one will [Em7]care til he's [C]dead  [D]
or he [C]falls from his [Bm]grace with it all [C]over the [Em7]place
and a [C]piece of it [D]stuck in his [G]head   [G]
Intro x4
