Has anyone worked this out? If so, I'd be grateful to know what you figured out.
It's not too late to bloom and twist your fate and become a rock solid kind of dude.

Yeah. It is fairly easy.

Intro "You want to grow up.... C-G-D-C-G"

The verses then switch to D..

"I used to go out in a Mustang... D-C-G"

Refrain: "don't give it away"..is Em-D-C


If that does not help, I can chart it out for you when I have some time.
Love each other, Motherfuckers!

Here you go:



C G D
You want to grow up to paint houses like me, a trailer in
C G
my yard till you're 23
C G D
You want to be old after 42 years, keep dropping the hammer
C G
and grinding the gears

D C G D C
Well, I used to go out in a Mustang, a 302 Mach One in
G
green
D C G D
Me and your Mama made you in the back and I sold it to buy
C G
her a ring
C G C
And I learned not to say much of nothing and I figured you
G
already know
C G D
but in case you don’t or maybe forgot, I’ll lay it out real
C
nice and slow

C G C
Don’t call what your wearing an outfit. Don’t ever say your
G
car is broke
C G D
Don’t worry about losing your accent, a Southern Man tells
C G
better jokes
C G C
Have fun but stay clear of the needle. Call home on your
G
sister’s birthday
C G
Don’t tell them you’re bigger than Jesus, don’t give it
Em D C G
away

Six months in a St. Florian foundry, they call it Industrial Park.
Then hospital maintenance and Tech School just to memorize Frigidaire parts.
But I got to missing your Mama and I got to missing you too.
So I went back to painting for my old man and I guess that’s what I’ll always do

So don’t try to change who you are boy, and don’t try to be who you ain’t.
And don’t let me catch you in Kendale with a bucket of wealthy-man’s paint.

Don’t call what your wearing an outfit. Don’t ever say your car is broke.
Don’t sing with a fake British accent. Don’t act like your family’s a joke.
Have fun, but stay clear of the needle, call home on your sister’s birthday.
Don’t tell them you’re bigger than Jesus, Don’t give it away.

Don’t give it away.
Love each other, Motherfuckers!
