Consequence Free  Great Big Sea

Here is Consequence Free by Great Big Sea. This song is often chorded
incorrectly because of the Bm in it. If you don't like this chord, don't
worry, there's a way to play it easily. Just do xxx432 instead of x24432.
(For the record, Sean McCann plays it xx4432 when playing this song live)
Tuning: Standard
[D]Na na [A]na na [G]na na n[A]a na na
D A G A (same for each line)
Wouldn't it be great, if no one ever got offended
Wouldn't it be great to say what's really on your mind
I have always said 'all the rules are made for bending'
And if I let my hair down, would that be such a crime?
A (leading in)
[G]I wanna [A]be [D]consequence [Bm]free
[G]I wanna [A]be [D]where nothing needs to [A]matter
[G]I wanna [A]be [D]consequence [Bm]free
just sing [D]Na Na N[A]a Na Na [G]Ne Na Na [A]Na
[Verse, same as last] 
I could really use, to lose my Catholic conscience
Cuz I'm getting sick of feeling guilty all the time
I won't abuse it, Yeah I've got the best intentions
For a little bit of anarchy but not the hurting kind
[Bridge] (D and then A leading in)
[G]I couldn't [D]sleep at all last night
[Bm]cause I had so mu[A]ch on my mind
[G]I'd like to [D]leave it all behind,
[Bm]but you k[A]now it's not that [G]easy
[A]But for just one night
[Same as verse] 
Wouldn't it be great, if the band just never ended
We could stay out late and we would never hear last call
We wouldn't need to worry about approval or permission,
we could - slip off the edge and never worry about the fall
