Do Nothing(Chords)

Caesars Palace

Key: A

This looks confusing so I'll try and explain what I was trying to do - The first 2 lines of  
each verse occupy 3 bars per line with the A chord played for 1 and a half bars. After those  
first 2 lines the remainder is a bar each. This happens every time it comes to a new verse. 

These chords sound most appropriate when played as barre chords 


Intro (3 bars) - Repeat x3 
1      2      3      4     |1      2      3      4     |1      2      3      4

verse 1 
A                          |A             E            |D 
Another day,just           trying to stay on my         feet  
Another night, when        I just         roam the      streets  


Chorus (2 bars) 
1      2      3      4     |1      2      3      4     |      
D                          |A                        
And everything is such a blur

verse 2

A                          |A             E            |D 
Another day, and            things don't  change a      bit  
Another job, that           I just        have to       quit  


Chorus 
1      2      3      4     |1      2      3      4     |  
D                          |A 
When nothing else is going  right 
she makes me wanna party    all night  
I'm trying hard to help my-|self but I'm just a 
do-                     no-|thing             <-- D and A chords not played on this last line.
