Ballad of Big Nothing  Elliott Smith

[C] [Am] [C] [Am] [Fm] [G]  
[G]Throwing candy out to the crowd
[C]Dragging down the [D]main
The [G]helpless little thing with the dirty mouth
Who's [C]always got something to [F]say
[G]You're sitting at home now
[C]Waiting for your brother to [D]call
[Dm]I saw him [G]down at the alley
[Fm]Having had enough of it [G]all
Said you can [C]do what you want to w[Am]henever you want to[Fm] [Dm] [Fm] [G]
You can d[C]o what you want to, there's [Am]no one to stop you[Fm] [Dm] [Fm] [G]
[G]All spit and spite, you're up all [C]night
And down every [D]day
[G]A tired man with only hours to go
Just [C]waiting to be taken [F]away
[G]Getting into the back of a car
For [C]candy from some [D]stranger
[Dm]watching the pa[G]rade with pinpoint [Fm]eyes
Full of sm[G]oldering anger
You can [C]do what you want to w[Am]henever you want to[Fm] [Dm] [Fm] [G]
You can [C]do what you want to, [Am]there's no one to sto[Fm]p y[Dm]ou[Fm] [G]
Now you can [C]do what you want to wh[Am]enever you want to
[C]Do what you want to whe[Am]never you want to
[G]Do what you want to wh[E]enever you want to
[Am]Though it doesn't mean a t[D]hing
[F]Big nothing[Fm]
[C] [Am] [C] [Am] [Fm] [G] [C]
