Verse 1:
C                G
We are young and we are weak
C                G     (C)
Just as blank as we are bleak

We all live and work in the red

We all live and work in the red

What failure gave us suits our taste
G          C     D      G
There's no money to our names
G     C       D      G
Empty pockets to our graves
G          C     D       G
There's no court for our case

Banjo (Capo II):

For the intro, play this four times:
D|---5---4---2---0---------------------|
B|-0---0---0---0---0-----0---0-----0---|
G|-------------------2/4---0---------0-|
D|-----------------------------0h2-----|
G|-------------------------------------|
Then repeat the G lick four times:
D|-----------------------------------------|
B|-0-----0---0-----0---0-----0---0-----0---|
G|---------0---------0---------0---------0-|
D|---0h2-------0h2-------0h2-------0h2-----|
G|-----------------------------------------|

The banjo drops out for the verses, but you can 
also follow the guitar chords if you so desire.

During the chorus, drop out for the first line, 
and then come in with this:
D|---5---4---5---7---9---4---5-----|
B|-0---0---0---0---0---0---0-------|
G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|
Drop out again for the third line, and then return 
for the fourth with something along these lines:
D|---12-------12-------12-------12-|
B|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|

For the first break, play the intro melody four 
times. A variant can be played as follows: 
D|---5---4---2---0---------------------|
B|-0---0---0---0---0-----0---0-----0---|
G|-------------------2/4---0---------0-| 
D|-----------------------------0h4-----|
G|-------------------------------------|

For the second break, play the intro melody once 
before altering it with a roll:
D|---5---4---2---0---2-----2-----2-----2-----|
B|-0---0---0---0-------3-----3-----3-----(3)-|
G|-----------------4-----4-----4-----4-------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------|
Alternatively, this variant can be played with 
pull-offs:
D|---5---4---2---0---2p0---2p0---2p0---2(p0)-|
B|-0---0---0---0---0-----0-----0-----0-------|
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------|

For the outro, play the intro melody until the 
end, occasionally replacing it with its variants.
