Give the Kid a Break  Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper - Give the kid a break
This one is kinda tricky with the timing, so you kinda have to know what your doing, but
chords are all there. p.s. this was a hard song to tab
Don't? know why I'm
down here
[F] Must be something I said
Or some small i[F#7]mperfection[C]
[E]In my soul or [Am]in [C7/G]my he[F]ad[D/F#]
Don't know[D7] why I'm down here[G] [F#7] [G]
Don't reserve to roast or bake
I'm fighting off slanderous allegations
Why don't you give the kid a break?
[G] Don't you think maybe we could talk this ov[C]er[F] [C]
[E]You're a reasona[Am]ble man
Could we discu[C]ss my grave situation[D] [D#] [E]
I'm a miserable m[Am]an[G]
And I'm in the frying pan
[D] [G]  
Give the kid a break
Give me one good reason[C] why [-]I s[B]hou[-]ld[Em] [-] [G]
All right, all right, so I made a few mistakes
But for heaven's sake
Watch your language, Kid.
OK, OK, don't get hot
question my judgement
He only reaped what h[F]e sowed
He cast his p[F#7]earls before swine[C]
[E] [Am] [C7/G] [F]  
An[D/F#]d that's good enough for me
[D7] [G] [F#7] [G] 
Solo (Verse chord progression)
I don't want to talk it over
Even tho' I'm a reasonable man
Sonny, from over here
Looks like you're in no position to bargain
You're a convicted man
You're right in the frying pan
Give the kid a break
Please give me a break
Give the kid a break
Nah nah, I don't think so, man
Come on, you know I got what it takes
Can't you give me a break?
Sure thing kid, when hell freezes over
Ok, don't give the kid a break
Hey you guys, I thought you were on my side
No they don't
Give the kid a break
Yeah, well thanks a lot, pals
Listen boss, maybe we can make a little deal
Isn't there anything I can say
Or some kind of fine I can pay
Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said (I'm sorry)
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
It might be some infection
It might be a small imperfection or a clear case of misdirection
It must be a small imperfection
In my soul or in my head
Give the kid a break
