Brendan Benson chords for Poised and ready

Guitar chords with lyrics

I like playing this song mostly with bar chords... makes it simpler for me and
prob for everyone who's used to those. Just play with it and let me know what you think of it.
Oh on the 1st bridge after the first two lines there a pretty easy bass mini riff
you can probably figure out... adds a lot to the song. If not here it is...

Intro:  A chord diagramC majorC - A chord diagramG+G - A chord diagramA minorAm - A chord diagramG+G

                                   Verse 1
A chord diagramC majorC
You're poised and ready
                  A chord diagramG+G
Unable to make a sound
Your hands are sweaty
           A chord diagramA minorAm
As you look down
You're running already
                  A chord diagramG+G
When you hit the ground

                                   Verse 2 (same chords)
                                           (C-G-Am-G)
You're willing and able
So nice to have around
The head of the table
Is tightly wound
The noise is loud
So turn it down

                                   Chorus 1

A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramG+G
When you think about it
        A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramA minorAm
Try to wrap your head around it
          A chord diagramFF
You find none of it
      A chord diagramG+G            A chord diagramA augmentedA
Makes any sense at all
A chord diagramFF                    A chord diagramG+G
And people you once trusted
         A chord diagramE minorEm            A chord diagramA minorAm
Are now looking so disgusted
             A chord diagramFF              A chord diagramG+G
And they're waiting anxiously
            A chord diagramD MajorD
For you to fall

                                    Verse 3 (again same chords... as verse 1)
                                            (C-G-Am-G)
You take for granted
And take what you can grab
Fore say what's landed
Into your lap
You shake the hand
And take a stab

                                    Verse 4 (and again verse 1 chords)
                                            (C-G-Am-G)
And there's no need to doubt it
There's never been
Two ways about it
It takes a thick skin
There's ways around it
But no way in

                                    Chorus 2 (same as 1st chorus)
When you think about it
Try to wrap your head around it
You find none of it
Makes any sense at all
And people you once trusted
Are now looking so disgusted
And they're waiting anxiously
For you to fall

                                    Bridge 1 (* = insert cool riff here)

     A chord diagramE minorEm       A chord diagramA minorAm
And there you go   (*)
 A chord diagramE minorEm                    A chord diagramA minorAm
Telling everybody you know  (*)
 A chord diagramE minorEm                A chord diagramA minorAm
Selling a one man show
    A chord diagramD MajorD
So take a look around you now
     A chord diagramFF
And soak it up and take a bow

                                    Verse 4 (same as 1st verse)
                                            (C-G-Am-G)
You're living and crawling
And trying to catch a breath
You're stalling and dying
A chord diagramA augmentedA sudden death
And all the while
You second guess

For it to stop
The clown was done

You're like a boy
             A chord diagramA augmentedA
In a china shop

You're poised and ready

Your hands are sweaty
As you look down
You're running already
When you hit the ground
