I'm [D]standing on the outside [G]lookin' in
A [D]room fulla money and I'm [B]born to win
And [A]no amount of [G]work's gonna get me through the [D]door
When [D]I go walkin' down [G]Blue Water bay
I [D]surface in the city [D/C#]at the [B]end of the day
Whoa, [A]I got a [G]bad case of the [D]bends
I'm [D]standing on the sidewalk [G]you can see
[D]Somebody every[D/C#]body [B]wants to be
But [A]they got the means to [G]justify every [D]end
I [D]got a friend broke through [G]illegally
[D]Pulled a job on a small [D/C#]town [B]T.A.B.
[A]Five grand down on his [G]own little piece of [D]Eden
And I know x 2
The [E]first thing I'll do when I [A]get into town
Is buy a [F#]22 and cut the [B]whole thing down [B/A]
[G]No amount of work's gonna [C]buy my way to [B]freedom [A] [G]
Short break
I'm [E]on the outside [A]lookin' in
I'm [E]standing on the out[E/Eb]side [C#]lookin' in
[B]Whoa, [A]whoa, oh[E]yeah
I'm [E]standing on the outside [A]lookin' in
I'm [E]standing on the outside [C#]lookin' in
[B] [A] [E] 
[E] [A] [E] [C#] [B] [A] [E] x 3
[NC/F#] [NC/Ab] [NC/A] [B]Whoa, [A]whoa, oh[E]yeah x 3
