I Was Wrong   Social Distortion

[D#]Rep[A#]eat[F]ed[G#] once

Verse 1
~~~~~~~
[D#]When I was young I was [A#]so full of fear
I [F]hid behind anger and [G#]held back the tears
It was [D#]me against the world and I was [A#]sure that I'd win
But the [F]world fought back punished me [G#]for my sins
I [D#]felt so alone so i[A#]nsecure
I [F]blamed you instead and made [G#]sure I was heard
And they [D#]tried to warn me of my [A#]evil ways
But I [F]couldn't hear wh[G#]at they had to say

Verse 2
~~~~~~~
And I [D#]think about my loves well I've [A#]had a few
I'm [F]sorry that I hurt them, did I [G#]hurt you too?
I [D#]took what I wanted put my [A#]heart on the shelf
[F]How can you love when you [G#]don't love yourself
It was [D#]me against the world I was [A#]sure that I'd win
But [F]the world fought back punished [G#]me for my sins
And they [D#]tried to warn me of my [A#]evil ways
But I [F]couldn't hear what they [G#]had to say

Bridge
~~~~~~
Well I [A#]grew up fast I [F]grew up hard
[G#]Something was wrong from the [A#]very start
I was fighting everybody I was[F] fighting everything
But the [G#]only one that I [A#]hurt was me
I got society's blood running [F]down my face
[G#]Somebody help me get [A#]out of this place
How could someone's bad [F]luck last so long
Un[G#]til I realized that [A#]I was wrong
