Verse 1:
I'm not [D]happy with my[G]self [D/F#]these [Em]days[A]
I took the [D]best parts of the s[G]cript

And this [D]red bandanas
[G]surely [D/F#]gonna [Em]fade[A]
Even [D]though it's the [G]only
[D/F#]thing the [Em]fire didn't [A]take
Chorus 1:
[G]Everybody [A]says you'll grown a
[D]lot from this [Bm]experience
[G] Baby B comes [A]in after a [D]while
becomes a [D7]president
[G] The best things get dis[A]guised

She [G]tells her son she [A]did the best
she [D]could as she buries [Bm]Dad

 Post Chorus: D--G-D/F#-Em-A-- x2

Bridge: Rap part
[D]Cut to a life
Being born in '69
[G]Little class suburb
[A]Everythings fine
[D]Fondue parties
My mom and my dad
[G]Drinks being drunk
And [A]fights being had
I [D]lost my virginity to a girl in my band
She was [G]four years older she [A]made me a man
So [D]addicted to sex
Every chance that I got
With who[G]ever I wanted
Un[A]til I got caught
So I [D]took my penicillin and I took my band
To a [G]town made of glitter girls and [A]cocaine friends
Got [D]handed the dream by the age of eighteen
Saw [G]more than most people that I [A]know had ever seen
Played [D]every bar drank till black and blue
Did the [G]morning show bullshit
And [A]went to China too
Where they [D]left us to die without a ticket to flee
In [G]sighting the riot we were [A]only 23
Packed it [D]up started over just as fast as we can
Selling [G]tapes making merch in the b[A]ack of a van
Living [D]hand-to-mouth for the next five years
G (hold)
Took up drinking wine, gave up drinking beer
Signed a[D]nother big deal with a devil in a dress
A [E]one hit wonder I think, des[A]cribes it best
De[D]cided to burn out, then to fade away
Went [E]back to the van the [A]very next day
Picked it [D]up made a living without any help
Made a[E]mazing friends if I [A]saw so myself
If [D]living like this at thirty-eight is a bore
Then come on God please give me thirty-eight more
Chorus 3:
And [G]everybody [A]know's I've [D]seen a lot
Yea, I'm ex[Bm]perienced
[G] Makes you feel so [A]old after a [D]while
Just like our [D7]last president
[G] Everytime I [A]come back in this [Bm]town [A]I [E/G#]know
G A(Hold)
I finally know the difference between
going back and going home
Yea back and going home I do
