SECOND GUITAR

C5 A#5 D5 (see the chords at the end)

VERSE

It's the same as the second part of the intro
But play it one time before every beginning of verses

[C5]Leave me alone
[A#5]I'm in control
[D5]I'm in control
[C5]And girls lie too much
[A#5]And boys act too tough
[D5]Enough is enough

BRIDGE

FIRST GUITAR it's still the same

SECOND GUITAR
[C]Well, on the minds
[A#]Of other men
[Dm]I know she was...

CHORUS
FIRST GUITAR always the same

SECOND GUITAR

I said, "[C5]Just take it or leave it
[A#5]And take it or leave it
[D5]And take it or leave it
[C5]And take it or leave it
[A#5]Oh, just take it or leave it
[D5]And take it or leave it
[D5]Oh, take it"
[C5]That's right    (keep playing C5 until tne E5 of the second bridge)

SECOND BRIDGE
Oh, he's gonna let [E5]you [D#5]down[D5]     [C5]
He's gonna le[E5]t yo[D#5]u do[D5]wn   [C5]
He's gonna le[E5]t yo[D#5]u do[D5]wn   [C5]
He's gonna br[E5]eak yo[D#5]ur ba[D5]ck for a ch[C5]ance
He's gonna st[E5]eal yo[D#5]ur fr[D5]iends if he can[C5]
E5 D#5 D5 (keep playing D5)
He's gonna win someday


VERSE

I fell off the track, now
I can't go back
I'm not like that

Boys lie too much
Girls act too tough
Enough is enough

BRIDGE

Well on the minds
Of other girls
I know he was...

CHORUS

I said, "Just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, take it"

That's right

Oh, he's gonna let you down
He's gonna let you down

Oh, he will...

Finish the same chords as the break
