The Kids Aren't Alright - Offspring
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: You can play the intro through the entire song if you want to.
Strum the intro with a lot of mutes, almost like your playing a ukulele.
Chord Diagrams are at the bottom!!
Also: If played in Half Step Down, all the annoying sharps are gone.

Intro 2/Verse: A#m F# C# G#

Verse:
[A#m]When we were young the future was so bright
[F#]The old neighborhood was so alive
[C#]And every kid on the whole damn street
[G#]Was gonna make it big in every beat
[A#m]Now the neighborhood's cracked and torn
[F#]The kids are grown up but their lives are worn
[C#]How can one little street
[G#]Swallow so many lives
 
 ------------------------------------------------

Chorus:
[A#m]Chances thrown
[F#]Nothing's free
[C#]Longing for
[G#]Used to be
[A#m]Still it's hard
[F#]Hard to see
[C#]Fragile lives
[G#]Shattered dreams
 
 ----------------------

Intro 2/Verse: x2
 
 ---------------------

[A#m]Jenny had a chance, well she really did
[F#]Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids
[C#]Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job
[G#]He just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot
[A#m]Jay committed suicide
[F#]Brandon OD'd and died
[C#]What the hell is going on?
[G#]The cruelest dream: reality
 
 -------------------------------------

Chorus:
[A#m]Chances thrown
[F#]Nothing's free
[C#]Longing for
[G#]Used to be
[A#m]Still it's hard
[F#]Hard to see
[C#]Fragile lives
[G#]Shattered dreams

Chorus:
[A#m]Chances thrown
[F#]Nothing's free
[C#]Longing for

[G#]Shattered dreams
