Lyrics and Chords

Intro: (x2)
A5 | A5 | F5 | G5
or [Riff]
{{*}}
Verse 1:
  A5
There I was completely wasting,
C5      G5       A5
Out of work and down,
A5
All inside it's so frustrating
       C5        G5      A5
As I drift from town to town.
{{*}}
 F5
Feel as though nobody cares
C5
If I live or die,
 F5
So I might as well begin
            E5
To put some action in my life.
{{*}}
Chorus:
A5                                    A5(VII)
  Breaking the law, breaking the law.
                                    A5(VII)
Breaking the law, breaking the law.
A5(VII)                               A5(VII)
  Breaking the law, breaking the law.
                                    A5(VII)
Breaking the law, breaking the law.
{{*}}
Verse 2:
A5(VII)
  So much for the golden future
C5      G5     A5
I can't even start.
A5
I've had ev'ry promise broken,
        C5    G5     E5
There's anger in my heart.
{{*}}
 F5
You don't know what it's like,
C5
You don't have a clue,
F5
If you did you'd find yourselves
E5
  Doin' the same thing too!
{{*}}
