It Doesn't Mean a Thing  The Airborne Toxic Event

Capo 5
C: 332010
F: 033210
G: 320013
[C]I never knew my mother
[F]I can't say it was so bad[G]
[C]She was still a girl of seventeen
[F]The night she met my dad[G]
[C]He was just six months out of Chino
[Am]Tryin' his hardest to stay clean[G]
[C]When they'd sing [Cmaj9]and they'd sing [Am]and they'd[G] sing[F]
[C]Like doves [Cmaj9]sleepin' wi[Am]th br[G]oken wings[F]
[C]In a bed [Cmaj9]fit for[Am] a kin[F]g
[F]It didn't mean a thing
[C]It was a shotgun-forced wedding
[F]And they forgot to bring the guns[G]
[C]They were busy countin' promises
[F]To the children not yet born[G]
[C]No one could afford the ride
[Am]Everyone hitched up the one oh one[G]
[C]And they'd si[Cmaj9]ng and they'd s[Am]ing and[G] they'd sing[F]
[C]Like [Cmaj9]doves dancin[Am]' with brok[G]en wings[F]
[C]Wit[Cmaj9]h a view[Am] fit[G] for[F] a king
[F]It didn't mean a thing
[C]It was a lonliness they would confess
[F]Like the world had gone bad, I guess
[C]So they hold hands lookin' to the eyes of God
[F]They say, "Tell me, why'd you hide from us?
[C]Why'd you fill the world with wickedness?
[F]Why'd you spare us from your grace but not the rod?[G]"
[C]Now my dad says, "Fuck the teachers,
[F]Just keep your head down hide.[G]
[C]Gotta find yourself alone
[F]before you'll find the eyes of God"[G]
[C]You may be broke and scared
[Am]And mad and tear at the flesh of your own heart's[G] strings
[C]But you were bor[Cmaj9]n to be a[Am] peasant n[G]ot a king[F]
[C]So ju[Cmaj9]st stop actin' l[Am]ike you're [G]runnin' form something[F]
[C]You're[Cmaj9] gonna leave the way y[Am]ou came without[G] a thing[F]
[C]With y[Cmaj9]ou're heart ti[Am]ed to your mi[G]nd tied to a string[F]
[C]You ju[Cmaj9]st sing and you [Am]sing and yo[G]u sing[F]
It doesn't mean a thing[C]
