N.C.
I want to believe in myself once again
So I dream of a man whose hopes never end
To kiss with a girl who's as lovely as you
I'd give you my heart, if you gave me the truth
And [C5]for every tear that is lost from an [G5]eye
I'd [E5]dig me a well where no [A5]man could destroy
I [C5]want to believe in a freedom that's [G5]bold
But [E5]all I remember is the freedom of old
fig. 1
(with variation of fig. 1)
Well I lost me a wife, so I found me a plane
Flew all the way to California
This mess in my head is a mess getting out
Ya drink too much coffee, I drink too much stout
But [C5]after a while, when my mouth's not so [G5]dry
I'll [E5]dance up a storm, sure life's looking fi[A5]ne
But as [C5]darkness falls, I return to my [G5]bed
Don't [E5]ask me more questions, don't f**k with my head
(with variation of fig. 1)
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
Like thousands of people, left standing in their shoe
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
As thousands they grieve, as the Black Friday rule
play fig. 1 once
then use this as a fill:

PM....... PM...................
|guitar solo|
the beginning and a good chunk of it is just figure 1 played palm
muted. for better effect, mess around in the Am pentatonic scale,
with position at the 5th fret (7th without the capo). the solo
sounds good regardless of exactly what you play as long as you
stay in the Am pentatonic. i'm pretty sure that this riff is
reoccurring throughout, though

N.C.
The buildings they shake but my heart it beats still
Oh mother of Jesus, I feel pretty ill
I want to go home where my feet both feel safe
But there ain't no jobs in the old free state
So [C5]I must remain in my new adopted l[G5]and
I'm [E5]doing the best, Hell I'm [A5]doin' all I can
So [C5]next time you see me, don't ask for my [G5]name
N.C.
For I am the King and sure long may I reign
(with fig. 1)
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
Like thousands of people, left standing in their shoe
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
As thousands they grieve, as the Black Friday rule
(with fig. 1)
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
Like thousands of people, left standing in their shoe
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
As thousands they grieve, as the Black Friday rule

acoustic guitar shadows most of the electric work here,
except in the solo. note that figure 1 isn't the EXACT
guitar used during the verses or chorus, but it's nearly
the exact same. use the same chords and progressions and
it'll sound right. the solo is fun and it's a perfect time
to pull out your own chops and improv. to get the solo the
same as from the cd, just stay on the 5th fret and follow the
same general progression. have fun
