Don't Sell Me Short  Bad Religion

(Document Begin)


Tabbed out by Eric Jorgensen (
This song should be played down one whole step down
but I have tabbed it out IN STANDARD E TUNING! This is
probably the best song off the New America so have a
blast playing it.
[G] [Bb] [Eb] [G] [Bb] [F]  
[G]we don[Eb]'t need[Bb] any more mountai[F]ns[Fsus] [F]
because the tra[Eb]il builde[Bb]rs
failed to [F]give us pa[Cm]ssage th[Eb]ere
[Bb]so we can't reach the s[F]ky
[G]we do[Eb]n't nee[Bb]d any more fail[F]ure[Fsus] [F]
there is human[Eb] tragedy[Bb]
t[F]hat's written[Cm] everywhere[Eb]
[Bb]and we are all too young to d[F]ie
like a my[G]stery[F] that's here to st[Bb]ay[Eb]
some peopl[G]e ne[F]ver go away[Bb] [Eb]
cuz they've got something to say[D7]
don't sell me short!
[Bb]you've been wrong too lo[F]ng
[G]don't brush me [Eb]off
[Bb]just because I don't bel[F]ong
like it or n[G]ot I'm all you've g[Eb]ot,
[Bb]dispose me when I'[Eb]m shot[F]
just don't sell me sh[G]ort,[Eb]
I might not [Bb]be who you thoug[F]ht
[G] [Bb] [Eb] [G] [Bb] [F]  
Same thing for the rest of the song and the bridge
just uses the chorus chords. This song is actually a
little tough to get the rhythm thing down for a few
parts of the song so good luck! There is a part
breakdown down below.
we don't need any more fables
because the writers have passed
and left us lessonless
and we must find our own way
we don't need any more privilege
there is vivid desperation
that is powerless
that no surplus can repay
like the fix of rapture in a trance
oh, fates are sealed by circumstance
so you've got to take a chance
don't sell me short!
you've been wrong too long
don't brush me off
just because I don't belong
pass me on by, ignore my cry,
forget me when I die
just don't sell me short,
not while I'm still alive
everybody's talking about heaven on earth,
I'm still trying to figure out
just what I'm worth
I'm full of emotion
and stuff you can't contain
and you just want to
flush me down the drain
but you can't make me go away
