You Wouldn't Have to Ask  Bad Books

Capo 3
All of the chords in brackets are optional. Kevin often plays them in his live performances.
The chords are pretty straightforward. Just to make things easier...
C/G is 332010
[B/F#]C/B i[is]s x[224442]20010 (It's just a bass walk down from C to Am)
[C/G]Your crooked days come [Em]bundled up in bunches
[F]break your brain like a[C/G] bran[B/F#]ch
[C/G]And push you out here [Em]asking after something
[F]you should know I don't [C/G]have
'Cause If I [(C/B)]had it you [Am]wouldn't [F]have to [C/G]ask
If I[(C/B)] had it you [Am]wouldn't [F]have to [C/G]ask
[C/G]Later on, when you [Em]bargain with your mirror
and you [F]as[(Fm)]k "is it really that [C/G]bad?"
Well if it [(C/B)]wasn't you [Am]wouldn't [F]have to [C/G]ask
(C/B) Am F Dm D7 (OR
D if you so choose)
If it wasn't you wouldn't have to ask
[F]How could you [C]know if you didn't?
[F]What's left to [C]say when your [G]tongue's turned to [F]ash?
C (OR Fm)
I'd tell you you're fine and forgiven
So you [Am]wouldn't [F]have to [C/G]ask
[C/G] [Em] [F] [C/G] [B/F#]  
[C/G] [Em] [F] [C/G]  
[C/G]Shoot what's left, [Em]slip inside your sinner's smile
[F]Another [(Fm)]man in a [C/G]mask
If you [(C/B)]faced it you [Am]wouldn't [F]need a [C/G]mask
If you [(C/B)]meant it you [Am]wouldn't [F]need a [C/G]mask
If I could[(C/B)] fix you you [Am]wouldn't [F]have to[C/G] ask
[(C/B)] [Am] [F] [C/G] 
[B]If[C] I[D] c[F]ou[G]ld help you you wouldn't have to ask
The last chord progression can be in open or barre chords, depending on your preference.
