D----------9---7-77----------------	
A---7-77----7------4-5------------
E -----------------------------------
       Em7          A	      	


Intro: 2x only bass then 2x with guitar.
verse: Em7, A

1)      Em7      	
Well he's not necessarily trying to say that he minds it
       A
But someone plays evil tricks on that kid
         Em7
Well he's not necessarily trying to say god can't be trusted
       A
But someone plays evil tricks on that kid
         Em7
And certain situations scream for deviations
       A
But somehow he always gets stuck in the middle
     Em7
Of this and that and man he should try less
          A
every time he's rejected man he loses affection

Ref.
        C	
But don't we all, don't we just got to give a little time
A                                           D                               Em7, D
Maybe give a friend a call instead of making him confused
A                      D                        Em7, D
What a terrible thing for you to do
A                       D                     Em7, D
What an awful thing for you to say
A                      D                      A
What a terrible thing for you to relay

2)
Well I know some people's they got a little less than nothing
But still find some to spare
And other people got more than they could use
But they don't share
And some people got problems man
They got awful complications
Other people got perfect situations
With no provocation

Ref.

But don't we all, don't we just got to give a little time
Maybe give a friend a call instead of making him confused
What a terrible thing for you to do
What an awful thing for you to say
What a terrible thing for you
Confused
What a terrible thing for you to do
What an awful thing for you to say
What a terrible thing for you to relay
