[Intro]

  Am  


[Verse 1]

   Am                       G             Am
As soon as you're born they make you feel small
   Am                    G          Am
By giving you no time instead of it all
         Am                      G          Am
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 2]

     Am                        G          Am
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
     Am                                 G         Am
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
            Am                         G            Am
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 3]

             Am                          G          Am
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Am                      G        Am
Then they expect you to pick a career
         Am                           G          Am
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 4]

         Am                      G         Am
Keep you doped with religion and sex and T.V.
        Am                         G             Am
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
           Am                        G            Am
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Verse 5]

        Am                       G           Am
There's room at the top they are telling you still
    Am                          G            Am
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
       Am                  G            Am
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
  Am                    G            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be


[Outro]

       Am                     G           Am
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
       Am                     G           D          Am
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

About the artist behind Working Class Hero:

John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940–8 December 1980) was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles. As a member of the group, Lennon was one of the lead vocalists and co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with bassist Paul McCartney.

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine". Lennon revealed his rebellious nature and wit on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night, in books such as In His Own Write, and in press conferences and interviews. He was controversial through his work as a peace activist, artist, and author.

Lennon had two sons: Julian Lennon, with his first wife Cynthia Lennon, and Sean Ono Lennon, with his second wife, avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. After a self-imposed retirement from 1976 to 1980, Lennon reemerged with a comeback album, but was murdered one month later in New York City on 8 December 1980. In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Lennon number 38 on its list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles at number one.
