Army  Ben Folds Five

Song: Army
Album: The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner
(see bottom for chords)
VERSE 1 (see below for guitar interlude played during verse)
Well I tho[G#]ught about the army
Dad said, "S[D#m]on you're fucking high"
And I th[C#]ought, yeah there's a first for everything[G#]
So I took my old man's advice, three sad semesters
It was o[D#m]nly fifteen grand
spent in b[C#]ed, I thought about the army
[G#]I dropped out and jo[C#/F]ined a band instead
CHORUS (piano solo)
[D#m] [A#m] [G#maj7]  
[D#m] [A#m] [G#maj7]  
VERSE 2 (same as verse 1 except for Fm chord)
Grew a moustache and a mullet
Got a job at chick-fillet
Citing artistic differences
the band broke up in May
And in J[Fm]une reformed without me
And they got a different name
I nuked another grandma's apple pie
And hung my head in shame, no
CHORUS (listen to song for the arrangement of the chords)
[D#m]Been [A#m]think[G#maj7]ing a lot today
[D#m]Been [A#m]think[G#maj7]ing a lot today
BRIDGE
[F#]Oh [C#]Oh Think I'll write a scr[G#]eenplay
[F#]Oh [C#]Oh Think I'll take you to LA[G#]
[F#]Oh O[C#]h Think I'll get it done y[Cm]esterday

HORN INTERLUDE ("")
[G#] [D#m] [C#] [G#]  
[G#] [D#m] [C#] [G#]  
VERSE 3 (same chords as previous verse)
In this time of introspection
On the eve of my election
I say to my reflection
God please spare me more rejection
'Cause my peers, they criticize me
And my ex-wives all despise me
Try to put it all behind me
But my redneck past is nipping at my heels
CHORUS (same as previous chorus)
ENDING
I thought about[F#maj7]
[A#] the ar[G#maj7]my
