G D

There's a place in the world for the angry young man

Am7 D

With his working class ties and his radical plans

G D

He refuses to bend, he refuses to crawl,

Am7 D

And He's always at home with his back to the wall.

F G/B C

And he's proud of his scars and the battles he's lost,

G/B A D

And he struggles and bleeds as he hangs on his cross-

G D Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C F C

And he likes to be known as the angry young man.

 

LEAD IN: Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C

 

G D

Give a moment or two to the angry young man,

Am7 D

With his foot in his mouth and his heart in his hand.

G D

He's been stabbed in the back, he's been misunderstood,

Am7 D

It's a comfort to know his intentions are good.

F G/B C

And he sits in a room with a lock on the door,

G/B A D

With his maps and his medals laid out on the floor

G D Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C

And he likes to be known as the angry young man.

 

F Gm7

I believe I've passed the age

Bb C

Of consciousness and righteous rage

F Bb

I found that just surviving

C D

was a noble fight.

G Am7

I once believed in causes too,

C D

I had my pointless point of view,

G/B C A

And life went on no matter who was wrong or right.

D

Oh.

 

G D

And there's always a place for the angry young man,

Am7 D

With his fist in the air and his head in the sand.

G D

And he's never been able to learn from mistakes,

Am7 D

So he can't understand why his heart always breaks.

F G/B C

And his honor is pure and his courage as well,

G/B A D

And he's fair and he's true and he's boring as hell-

G D Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C

And he'll go to the grave as an angry old man.

 

 

Instrumental: F Gm7 Bb C F Bb C D G Am7 C D G/B C A D

(listen for timing)

 

G D

There's always a place for the angry young man

Am7 D

With his working class ties and his radical plans

G D

He refuses to bend, he refuses to crawl,

Am7 D

And He's always at home with his back to the wall.

F G/B C

And he's proud of his scars and the battles he's lost,

G/B A D

And he struggles and bleeds as he hangs on his cross-

G D Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C F C

And he likes to be known as the angry young man.

 

 

CODA: Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C F C

Cmaj7 D G/B C Am7 G/B C(let ring)

 

 

extra notes: On the "man" parts, the chord switch is pretty quick.
