Capo on 2nd Fret
Bm Bm A A G G
You, with your words like knives and swords
(G G)
And weapons that you use against me
Bm Bm A A G G
You, have knocked me off my feet again
(G G)
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Bm Bm A A G G
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
(G G)
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Bm Bm A A G G
You, pickin' on the weaker man

A A D D G G A A
Well you can take me down with just one single blow
G G -once
But you don't know, what you don't know...


D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G......Stop
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
...... D D D D -once
Why you gotta be so mean?


Bm Bm A A
You, with your swithching sides and
G G
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Bm Bm A A G G
You, have pointed out my flaws again
-stop
As if I don't already see them
Bm Bm A A
I walk with my head down
G G
Tryin' to block you out
G G
'Cause I never impress you
Bm Bm A A G G
I just wanna feel okay again

A A
I bet you got pushed around
D D G G A A
Somebody made you cold
(A A)
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
G G
You can't lead me down that road
G G -stop
And you don't know what you don't know


D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
Someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D D D D -once Asus4 Asus4 G G
Why you gotta be so mean?


A A
And I can see you years from now in a bar
D D G G A A
Talkin' over a football game
(A A)
With that same big loud opinion
D D G G A A
But no one's listening
(A A)
Washed up and ranting about the
D D* *once A A* G G*
Same old bitter things
A A D D* A A* G G*
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I can't sing
-no chord D D A A Bm Bm
But all you are is mean
G G D D A A Bm Bm
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
G G D D A A Bm Bm G G
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean


(*Palm mute*)
D D* Asus4 Asus4* G G*
But someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
D D* Asus4 Asus4* G G* G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah--ah
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
(G G) D D
Why you gotta be so...Someday
Asus4 Asus4 G G
I'll be livin in a big ol' city (why ya gotta be so mean)
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (why ya gotta be so mean)
D D Asus4 Asus4 G G
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me (why ya gotta be so mean)
D D* *once Asus4 Asus4* G G*
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
D D*
Why you gotta be so mean?

Replacing Bm with D and Asus4 with A sounded better in my opinion.

I had another way of playing it: C G Dm F. I dont know if this is the original key but it sure sounds good:)
