Preaching From a Chair  Thunder



Tabbed by: Kengus
Standard tuning
INTRO Am D Am G x2
[Am] I'm sorry I don't[Am7/G] hate the world
[F] I'm afraid that I'm not disturbed[(G)]
[Am] I'm sorry that I [Am7/G]don't do drugs, I [D/F#]hope you under[Am/F#]stand
[Am] I can't talk about my [Am7/G]life in hell
Or a [F]suicide attempt that didn't go well[(G)]
[Am] No life of crime, no [Am7/G]misery, what you [D/F#]see is what you[Am/F#] get
[C] And I don't believe in [D]dwelling on the darker side
Cos there's e[Dm]nough bad news on the [G]television every [Am]night
[C] So I don't need some little [D]punk who's the latest star
[Dm]Telling me over and [G]over again
[Dm]Life's such a drag when [E7]you're in a band
[Am] What is it coming [G]to[F] when everyone's talking through their[C] hat
And we've[Gsus4] heard it all be[G]fo[E7/G#]re
[Am] What happened to honest[G]y?[D/F#] The way that it [D7/F#]looks to me
Is [Dm]everybody's in it trying to [G]get somewhere
And [Dm]trying to justify it[E7], preaching from a chair
INTRO (half)
VERSE2 (same chords as above)
Please forgive me if the clothes ain't right
I wouldn't want you hanging with an uncool guy
No flannel shirt and no tattoos, maybe I should grow a beard?
Don't you tell me what I oughta think
Which cigarettes to smoke, and what I oughta drink
Don't judge me by the way I look cos the clothes don't make the man
PRE-CHORUS (same chords as above)
I'm not about to be a slave to a book of rules
Don't wanna spend my life trying to be somebody else
And I'd be wrong to believe in every word that I ever read
You can't fool all the people all of the time
And one man's opinion's another man's lie
The makers of taste will be patronising you and me forever
And it's always been the same
You'll enter the twilight zone if you don't keep your mind your own
I shouldn't let it get to me but I don't care
I can't stomach bullshit, when it's preaching from a chair
 B|-------------------------------------------------|this is the basics
 G|-------------------------------------------------|of the solo
 A|-----0h3-0-----0h3---------0h3-0-----0h3-0-------| play x4

[F] [G] [F] [G] [Am] [G/B] [Am]  
VERSE3 (same chords as above)
I'm sorry that I like the sun
I'm sorry to say I don't wanna own a gun
Cos if my number's up well that's alright, sometime we all got to go
So many versions of the world outside
Reality is getting hard to find
So many people with an axe to grind
It's hard to know who to believe
[C] Don't lecture me, until you [D]know what the truth is
Well take a [Dm]good look inside before you [G]criticise everyone [Am]else
[C] Your jealousy ain't e[D]nough of a reason, babe
To [Dm]justify telling me where [G]I went wrong
So [Dm]don't try to do it[G]
Cos [Dm]all you ever do is sing the [G]same old song
And [Dm]no one wants to [E7]hear
Preaching from a chair
OUTRO (= intro + solo, fadeout)
