Working Class Hero
WORKING CLASS HERO- John Lennon


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

Chorus 1:

  Am            G       D            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

Chorus 2:

  Am            G       D            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

Chorus 3:

  Am            G       D            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

Chorus 4:

  Am            G       D            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

Chorus 5:

  Am            G       D            Am
A working class hero is something to be
  Am            G       G            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                   Am
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

About the artist behind Working Class Hero:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
