Apes of the State - Timeline Guitar Chords

Apes of the State

acoustic punk, folk punk

Chords: A, D
I wrote this song. This is a simplified chord version of how I play it. I acutally  play two variations of the
A and the D chords  on the 5th fret. If you want to learn how to play it that way, watch this video:

Otherwise it sounds fine like this. 
Listen here for strumming pattern: https://apesofthestate.bandcamp.com/track/timeline
It stays consistent through the song except for some palm muting during the verses

[Intro]
A D 2x

[Verse 1]
A
Two years ago I was sitting on a tiny blue 
D
couch In the basement apartment of a college town the
A 
tears rolled out as I started to Break 
D
Down 
A
Cause I was lost and I was scared I was graduating 
D
school and for the first time in my life I felt so unprepared 
A
with no idea what direction I was heading to.. 
D

[Chorus]
A
And I was trying I was trying not to lose my 
D
mind Do do do do 
A
Yea I was trying I was trying not to lose my 
D
mind Do do do do 
A D 2x

[Verse 2]
A
One year ago I was sitting on the edge of the 
D
bed At my sister's house in Edison 
A
I pulled the needle out as I started to Break
D
Down 
A
Cause I was hurt and I was scared I tried to make it on my
D
own and I found out that I was just so unprepared and
A
that was how I learned
D 
That in order to be fixed
N.C.
I had to be broken first 

[Chorus]
A
And I was trying I was trying not to lose my 
D
mind Do do do do 
A
Yea I was trying I was trying to stop getting
D
high Do do do do 
A D 2x

[Verse 3]
A
Four months ago I met a girl with pretty brown 
D
eyes She looked at me and she said "I want you for mine" It made me
A
happier than I'd been
D
Well in a long time 
A
And when I found her I was scared Love never seems to
D
come when I'm prepared And I want to write her a 
A
song.. But every time I 
D
try, the words never seem to come out 
A
right 

[Chorus]
A
And I'm just trying I'm just trying not to lose my 
D
mind Do do do do 
A
But she makes me yea she makes me lose my god damn
D
mind Do do do do 
A D 2x
