The Song:

E7  A7  C  B7

E7
We walk hand in hand 'til life does us part
A7
me and the world, my scum sweetheart
C
We met long ago with a flirt and a stare
B7
together ever since, a lethal love affair
E7
I tried to get out, to get up and go
A7
I was afraid of the fall, the vertigo

C
You made me suffer, guilt was your game
B7
you had control of what I became
E7
A rotten romance if I'd stayed I'd die
A7
t'was a fond farewell, when I said goodbye
C
Now I'm free, on solid ground
B7
no more of you pushing me around

CHORUS
You're my scum sweetheart
You're the world, you broke my heart
You're my scum sweetheart
You're the world, you broke my heart

E7  A7  C  B7

E7
You're the world, full of lies
A7
how could I think of compromise?
C
It seems to me a solitaire affair
B7
I was in need, but you didn't care
E7
Please stay away, heartbreaker
A7
you're not gonna be my soul taker
C
I've got friends that want to see you
B7
they'd stay away if they had a clue

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO

E7
It's a black heart that I see
A7
it's evil, it's bad and all in between
C
Whatever it is I'll do my part
B7
to keep you from being their scum sweetheart

REPEAT CHORUS.

END.

These have got to be pretty accurate because they came straight 
from Barry Blair on an interview on AOL.

Try playing a E7#9 instead of just E7.


legionbenji - 2005-09-18

Just fyi, the aforementioned E7#9 (which is the correct chord) can be played two main ways:
020103
or
076780
Personally I prefer to play this chord the second way and play the other chords barred to make little lead fills easier to throw in there.
