[Intro]
G C6 G C6
 
         G      C6          G     C6    G   C6  G  C6
I've got every reason on earth to be mad,
       G        C6       G     C6       D7
cause I've just lost the only girl I had
   C7                       
If I could get my way, I'd get myself locked up today,
           G   C6        D7         G  C6  G  C6
but I can't,    so I'll cry instead.
 
        G          C6              G       C6         G   C6  G  C6
I got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet,
G       C6       G     C6         D7
I can't talk to people that I meet
   C7                       
If I could see you now, I'd try to make 
                            G     C6       D7        G  C6  G
you sad somehow, but I can't,     so I'll cry instead.
 
C6          Bm
Don't wanna cry when there's people there,
      A7
I get shy when they start to stare;
    D                           Em              A7        D7
I'm gonna hide myself away, but I'll come back again some day
 
          G        C6     G    C6          G   C6  G  C6
And when I do you better hide all the girls,
  G        C6             G       C6            D7
I'm gonna break their hearts all round the world
    C7
Yes I'm gonna break 'em in two, 
    
and show you what your loving man can do;
          G  C6       D7      G   C6  G  C6
until then    I'll cry instead.
 
            Bm
Don't wanna cry when there's people there,
      A7
I get shy when they start to stare;
    D                           Em              A7        D7
I'm gonna hide myself away, but I'll come back again some day
 
          G        C6        G    C6           G   C6  G  C6
And when I do you better hide     all the girls,
   G       C6               G     C6            D7
I'm gonna break their hearts all round the world
    C7
Yes I'm gonna break 'em in two, 
    
and show you what your loving man can do;
          G      C6       D7       G  C6  G
until then        I'll cry instead.
