Mad World(Chords)

Adam Lambert

Key: Am
So I was playing along to Adam Lambert's Studio  
version of this song using the Gary Jules progression 
when I noticed that it didn't fit at all. With some  
moving of the capo I found the right progression for his 
key right at the head of the guitar, standard tuning. 

Am               C 
All around me are familiar faces 
G                         D 
Worn out places, worn out faces  
Am                            C 
Bright and early for their daily races 
G                        D 
Going nowhere, going nowhere 
Am                         C 
Their tears are filling up their glasses 
G                      D 
No expression, no expression  
Am                             C 
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow 
G                    D 
No tomorrow, no tomorrow 

Am 
And I find it kind of funny 
D 
I find it kind of sad 
Am 
The dreams in which I'm dying 
D 
Are the best I've ever had 
Am 
I find it hard to tell you 
D 
I find it hard to take 
Am 
When people run in circles 
D 
It's a very, very 
 Am  G     D 
         Mad World  
 Am  G     D 
         Mad world 

Am                               C 
Children waiting for the day they feel good 
G                         D 
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday  
Am                             C 
And I feel the way that every child should 
G                   D 
Sit and listen, sit and listen  
Am                          C 
Went to school and I was very nervous 
G                           D 
No one knew me, no one knew me  
Am                          C 
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson 
G                                  D 
Look right through me, look right through me 

Am 
And I find it kind of funny 
D 
I find it kind of sad 
Am 
The dreams in which I'm dying 
D 
Are the best I've ever had 
Am 
I find it hard to tell you 
D 
I find it hard to take 
Am 
When people run in circles 
D 
It's a very, very 
 Am  G      D 
         Mad World  
 Am  G     D 
         Mad World  
 Am  G     D 
         Mad World  
 Am  G     D 
         Mad World.
