[Verse]

    D                  A    G
I'm standing on the outside lookin' in
    D                  A    Bm
I'm standing on the outside lookin' in
      Am         Em         G        D
Whoa-oh, I never strayed outside the law
    D                  A    G
I'm standing on the outside lookin' in
    D                A       Bm
A room full of money and I'm born to win
     Am                 Em           G           D
And no amount of work's gonna get me through the door
     D            A    G
When I go walkin' down Blue Water bay
    D                  A     Bm
I surface in the city at the end of the day
      Am         Em  G           D
Whoa-oh, I got a bad case of the benz
    D                  A    G
I'm standing on the sidewalk you can see
D             A    Bm
Somebody everybody wants to be
     Am                   Em      G     D
But they got the means to justify every end
  D                  A       G
I got a friend broke through illegally
         D              A    Bm
Pulled a job on a small town t.a.b.
Am                     Em         G        D
Five grand down on his own little piece of Eden


[Bridge]

(Single strums)
D
And I know ...
D
And I know ...

(Resume full strumming)
    E                          A
The first thing I'll do when I get into town
         F#             B
Is buy a 22 and cut the whole thing down
G                         C             B    A  G 
No amount of work's gonna buy my way to free-ee-dom


[Short break]


[Chorus]

    E              A
I'm on the outside lookin' in
    E                       C#m
I'm standing on the outside lookin' in
     B        A      E
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, oh yeah
    E                       A
I'm standing on the outside lookin' in
    E                       C#m
I'm standing on the outside lookin' in
B     A     E


[Outro]

E   A   E   C#m   B    A   E           x 3
F# Ab A        B        A      E       x 3
          Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, oh yeah
