Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Underdog  Spoon

[Em]                           [Am]          
Picture yourself in the living room

your pipe and slippers set out for you

I know you think that it ain't too far

[Em]                             [C]        
But I hear the call of a lifetime ring

         [C-]     [D-]       [G]                
felt the need to get up for it

Oh, you cut out the middleman

get free from the middleman

[C]                          [G]           
You got no time for the messenger,

[C]                        [D]            [G] 
got no regard for the thing that you don't understand,

[C]                         [Bm]            
you got no fear of the underdog,

that's why you will not survive

[G]  [C]  [G]  [D]  [D]  [G]  [C-G]                         
C Bm D G G-D x2

[Em]                          [C]           
I want to forget how conviction fits

          [D]             [G]              
but can I get out from under it?

Can I gut it out of me?

[C]                 [G]                    
It can't all be wedding cake

It can't all be boiled away

I try but I can't let go of it

I can't let go of it,

[C]                              [G]       
'Cause you don't talk to the water boy

[C]                               [D]     [G] 
and there's so much you could learn but you don't want to know,

[C]                         [Bm]            
You will not back up an inch ever,

that's why you will not survive,

[G]  [C]  [G]  [D]  [D]  [G]  [C-G]                         
[C]    [Bm]     [D]    [G]   [G-D]                     
C Bm D G.... G-D

[C]    [Bm]     [D]    [G]   [G-D]                     
[Em]                   [Am]                  
The thing that I tell you now

[D]              [G]               [G-D]        
It may not go over well

[Em]                  [Am]                   
And it may not be photo-op

[D]                  [G]               [G-D]    
in the way that I spell it out

[C]                             [Bm]        
But you won't hear from the messenger,

don't wanna know 'bout something that you don't understand,

You got no fear of the underdog,

that's why you will not survive

[G]  [C]  [G]  [D]  [D]  [G]  [C-G]                         
C Bm D G G-D x2

[C]    [Bm]     [D]                            
[G]  [C]  [G]  [D]  [D]  [G]  [C-G]                         
[C]    [Bm]     [D]    [G]   [G-D]                     
C Bm D G....
