#Verse 1:
 DC/Dbass
 You see the world through your cynical eyes
 DC/Dbass
You're a troubled young man I can tell
 DC/Dbass
 You've got it all in the palm of your hand
          B-              C/B-bass      B-          C/B-bass

But your hand's wet with sweat and your head needs a rest
 D/AbassG/Abass
You're foolin' yourself if you don't believe it
 D/AbassEm7/Abass
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it

Verse 2:
Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me
How can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb, such a caring young man
You're foolin' yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it

Chorus:
 DDsus4DDsus4D
Get up, get back oyour feet
 Dsus4DDsus4DC
You're the one thecan't beat and you know it
 DDsus4DDsus4D
Come on, let's see what you've got
 Dsus4DDsus4DC
Just take your best shot and don't blow it
 GB-CGm7C
Oh....   Oh.....      

Middle Section/Solo

You're foolin' yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it
Get up, get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it
Come on, let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it.
