 *---*CAPO 3*---*

[D]I never was a straight lace, straight-A stu[G]dent
Teacher's p[A]et or child prodi[D]gy
I wasn't gonna get rich throwin' a [G]football
It'd take too l[A]ong to get a l[G]aw degree[D]
So I sat down with mama and d[G]addy
They tried to talk some s[A]ense into my big h[Em]ead
But the b[D]est advice that I [G]ever got was from my [A]sister's rock s[G]tar boy[D]friend
Just g[A]et your [G]guitar and le[D]arn how to play
C[A]ut up some je[G]ans, c[D]ome up with a name
When you're l[A]iving in a wo[G]rld that you d[Bm]on't under[G]stand
Find a f[D]ew good buddies[A]
Start a band, st[D]art a ba[A]nd[D], start a band[D/G/A/Bm/D/G/A/G/D]
[D]And all those girls that were too cool to t[G]alk to
They'll be wa[A]itin' in the line out b[Bm]ack
Might get your p[D]icture in your hometown pa[G]per
Maybe buy your m[A]ama that C[G]adillac[D]
[D]Just g[A]et your g[G]uitar and l[D]earn how to play
[A]Cut up some j[G]eans, c[D]ome up with a name
When you're li[A]vin' in a wo[G]rld that you d[Bm]on't unders[G]tand
Find a f[D]ew good buddies
[A]Start a band, start a band[D] scrape up some m[G]oney
Buy a van,[A] learn f[D]ree bird a[G]nd ra[A]mblin' man
Never b[Bm]uy another b[G]eer again[A/D/G/A/Bm/D/G/A/Bm/D/G/D/Bm/G/D/A/G/Bm/A]
Just g[A]et your g[G]uitar and l[D]earn how to play
G[A]row out your h[G]air, c[D]ome up with a name
A G Bm D D(draw the D out until
With a little bit of luck you'll be packin' the stands it stops)
Find a few good buddies, s[A]tart a b[D]and
No need to study, s[A]tart a b[D]and
Call up some b[G]uddies, man, s[A]tart a band[D]
That's it. Have fun!
