A fantastic and simple song...the tempo starts slow and picks up as it goes. This is how I like to play it. To make for easier playing you can use the alternate version of Asus2 throughout (I believe Mat himself does this live sometimes). I think the fuller one sounds better, but both give the same effect. Happy playing :)

Verse

I'm Asus2sure that I'mCm7 moving to St LoBsus4uis ThreAsus2e long years wonderCm7ing here in New YorBsus4k City I guAsus2ess I'm looking for the Cm7right way to do Bsus4this I gueAsus2ss I'm looking for the rCm7ight things to call pBsus4retty

Pre-chorus

YounAsus2g boys playing in the paCm7rk turning their backs to Bsus4take a shot You Asus2know I'll stay sharp around hereCm7 'cause they're stoning and lBsus4eaving type It's the kAsus2ind of love that comes and gCm7oes when there's company cBsus4oming around

Chorus

Asus2What's a boy toCm7 do who knows no man noBsus4w? Asus2What's a boy toCm7 do who knows no man noBsus4w?

Verse

Daddy's been looking down his nose at all of them And I've been looking round for someone to tell me who I am He kept saying I was to young to finish a fight I'd die each time they came I never got to draw my knife

Pre-chorus

Well it was just a pair of shoes in a middle school room with the world watching in And angel is crying I'm dying just a little inside as they ran away Funny which words stick around 20 years down when you're driving alone

Chorus

What's a boy to do when there's no man at home? What's a boy to do when there's no man at home?

Bridge 1

Well I'll Asus2stack all my boCm7oks in peBsus4rfect rows From the Asus2biggest down tCm7o the Bsus4smallest ones And I bAsus2uy all the pCm7erfect Bsus4clothes Bullet Asus2proof and black, where ICm7 look like a Bsus4son...

Pre-chorus

Well it was just a rain night at his house A bottle spinning around the room And everybody's singing and slipping down the bottom halfway rush of blood And I was grabbing Missy but I was trying to find the light switch in the dark

Chorus

What's a boy to do with no man in his heart? What's a boy to do with no man in his heart?

Bridge 2

It's all qAsus2uiet for the first time With nBsus4o voices left to fall I saw a boy Cm7at the bottom of the bridge His caAadd9r was left there on the top It's Asus2four o'clock in the morning Didn'tBsus4 need to be like this There'sCm7 a white sheet left to cover up What sAadd9hould have been a holy kiss It's Asus2not like those days Cm7It's not like I'm scareBsus4d of you

Chorus

What's the sAsus2on of man and aCm7 boy to do?Bsus4 What's the sAsus2on of man and aCm7 boy to youBsus4?
