fashion, so any mistakes or advice are appreciated.. after all I WANT to play it

C C (x32013)
They pay me not to come home..
[E7]Keeping me stoned..
I [am]won'[am7]t run away.[D7].
C C (x32013)
They say it's easy to get..
St[E7]uck in this town..
Just like Jo[G7]an.
[C]You know I gave it all up for the s[C7]tage..
E7 E7 (x20130)
They fill my cup up.. in the cage..
It's no ones b[Dm]usiness but m[F]ine when I'm l[G]ow..
To hold yourself u[Dm]ps not a cri[F]me here you kn[G]ow..[G6] [G]
At the end of the wo[C]rld..
S[C]o I kick my f[G]eet at the ligh[am]ts..[am7]
