Bitter Old Man
INTRO D G A G D G A G i was born a bitter old man who got his heart broken in catalonia, 1936. D G i haven't felt right since, so i gave up on life before i arrived. A G D i knew this place wasn't safe for anyone but fascists and republicans and their apologists. A G D Em A but i swear to god, i'm gonna die full of naive optimism; a teenager's heartbreaking conviction G A that things can be different. oh yeah, things are gonna be real different when we're finished D around here. Em G A i always wanted to die young. D Em G A i always wanted to die young. D Em G i always wanted to die young; A Em D G A G now i feel younger every day, and i just hope i die younger than i am. D i can hear you from a dozen states away G A G D shivering through a dope sick morning of no money left and nothing else to steal. D G A lord only knows that i've had my share, because there were years when i was ready to die, G D but it's only been recently that i've been willing to live.
