Acoustic Cover of Ska Classic - Catch 22 - 1234 1234

Recording my acoustic guitar cover of ska anthem 1234, by Catch 22.
Just finished recording my newest cover song. I decided to go with one of my favorite ska classics, 1234 1234.The song was originally released as Catch 22 on the Keasbey Nights album and was re-recorded and re-released (Wikipedia) along with the entire rest of the album as Streetlight Manifesto. Lyrics and chords are posted below.

Enjoy!

Catch 22 - 1234 1234 (Cover)
Lyrics - Chords - C Am F G -
You, you try, you try to get by,
you’re never going to pull it off,
you shouldn't even try.
You're a wet cigarette,
you’re always second best,
they're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
So you fight for them to realize,
there's more to life,
there's more to you,
there's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done, the battle's been won,
you sit back, you smile,
And this is what you hum, you hum,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
1234 1234

You, you try, you try to get by,
you’re never going to pull it off,
you shouldn't even try.
You're a wet cigarette,
you’re always second best,
they're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves.
You fight for them to realize,
there's more to life,
there's more to you,
there's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done, the battle's been won,
you sit back, you smile,
And this is what you hum, you hum,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
1234 1234

(Years!) go by, the time it does fly,
Every single second is a moment in time,
that passes oh so quick, and it seems like nothing,
but when you're looking back, well it amounts to everything,
(Whoa) I've got myself, I've got my friends,
I've got my little family, but that's not where it ends,
This one goes out to you, it goes out to everyone,
It's in the name of honesty because life has just begun.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
1234 1234

Look around little brother can you tell me what you see?
You're a big boy now, so take responsibility,
you never had it hard, but now it's getting tough,
so you (whine! whine! whine!) and you say you've had enough.
You say I'm full of shit, that I'm a hypocrite
I shouldn't talk when I can't take the advice that I give,
Well maybe you're right, but open your eyes:
the main difference here is that I (try! try! try!)

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
1234 1234

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh.
1234 1234
