Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
Am

Verse 1:
    Am
As soon as you're born
      G              Am
They make you feel small
    Am
By giving you no time
    G         Am
Instead of it all,
           Am
'Till the pain is so big
          G         Am
You feel nothing at all.

Chorus:
   Am
A working class hero
      G          Am
Is something to be.
   Am            G
A working class hero
                 D | Am
Is something to be.

Verse 2:
      Am
They hurt you at home
          G            Am
And they hit you at school.
      Am
They hate you if you're clever
          G         Am
And they despise a fool.
              Am
'Till you're so fucking crazy
           G            Am
You can't follow their rules.

[Chorus]

Verse 3:
              Am
When they've tortured and scared you
      G         Am
For twenty odd years
  Am
Then they expect you
    G        Am
To pick a career,
          Am
When you can't really function,
        G          Am
You're so full of fear.

[Chorus]

Verse 4:
          Am
Keep you doped with religion
     G        Am
And sex and T.V.
          Am
And you think you're so clever
      G             Am
And classless and free.
             Am
But you're still fucking peasants
    G            Am
As far as I can see.

[Chorus]

Verse 5:
         Am
There's room at the top,
          G            Am
They are telling you still,
     Am
But first you must learn
         G           Am
How to smile as you kill
        Am
If you want to be like
     G            Am
The folks on the hill.

[Chorus]

Coda:
        Am
If you want to be a hero,
       G              Am
Well, just follow me.
        Am
If you want to be a hero,
       G/B         D | Am | Am
Well, just follow me.
