G d-d-d B7 d-d-d C7 d-d-u-d  G d-d-d B7 d-d-d C7 d-d-u-d

(on recording it plays the G, B7, C7 in a loop and fades out, b/c you can't 
do this playing live then u can end it any way you want. I like to end with 
the Intro and on the last G upstroke I like to let it ring)
 
But there it is, that is my interpitation of "I will buy you a new life" 
Everclear. I think this is easier to read and understand and it sounds better 
in the long run.

Suggestion by Kurt (kurt-kristy@bigpond.com)
the verse part of I will buy you a new life starts I'm sure it goes 
G then B7 three times then when he gets to "...when I get paid again" 
he plays a C when he sings 'I' and at the end of 'again' plays Em
 
this is a B7 just in case you didn't know ------2------
