Verse 1
=======
D                             Em    G
They're trying hard to put me in my place
    Bm               A          G
And that is why I've gotta keep runnin'
    D                      Em    G
The future's mine and it's no disgrace
    Bm             A          G
Cos in the end the past means nothing

You tell me I'm free then you tie me down
And from my chains I think it's a pity
What did it cost you to wear my crown
You don't like me why don't you admit it

Pre-chorus
      A                  Em
D'you feel a little down today
        G                 D
Bet you ain't got much to say
                 A                    Em
But you're gonna miss me when I'm not there
           G
You know I don't care
