Life on the Nickel  Foster the People

Song: Life On The Nickel
Key: D# | Capo: 3

[Am]Yet again I'[Dm]m hustling, hustling, hustling
[Em]Yet again I'[Dm]m hustling, hustling, hustling
[Am]Yet again I'[G]m hustling, [C]hustling,[F] hustling
But [C]I can't seem to catch a dime
[Em]Take a little hit and I lose the time[G]
Verse 1:
I took the [Am]man and his h[Dm]orse
And ran before he looked up
I said the [Am]light's gonna [Dm]change
But I'm calm and feeling warm
And now I'm [Am]sticking out my h[Dm]ands[Am] [G]
And feeling [F]weightless again
You got to [Am]push, got to [Dm]shove
I've got to eat before they eat me
Got the [Am]crown and the c[Dm]up
I've got to write to my family
And say, "I'm [Am]calm and feeling [Dm]warm."
I'm [Am]not quite[G] there, [Em]but I'm c[F]lose
And it's a world of a dif[G]ference
Verse 2:
I've got the [Am]worst all be[Dm]hind me
Yeah they'll never be able to find me
I'm the [Am]king of the c[Dm]ity
I'm a roach and they're all primates
This is [Am]meal [Dm]time, [Am]real [G]life
I'm not g[F]onna fight
No, I'm gonna start a war
[Am] I've been [Dm]right, I've been wrong
My smokes have come and gone
[Am] I've been[Dm] crazy
Been fed enough to not wind up dead
[Am] And I'm[Dm] lonely
My [Am]eyes have been [G]closed [Em]to the w[F]orld
'Cause the world's got nothing [G]for me
Chorus (x2)
Instrumental: Am-Dm Em-Dm G Am-G C-F C Em G
[Am]Yet again I'[Dm]m hustling, hustling, hustling
[Em]Yet again I'[Dm]m hustling, hustling, hust[G]ling
[Am]Yet again I'[G]m hustling, [C]hustling,[F] hustling[C] [Em] [G]
