It always feels like I'm waiting for something
             Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramBB

             B/Bb
It always feels like I'm waiting
             Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramBB

Chord diagramA augmentedA|-4444--6666--2222---44444444-6666-7777-9999/4444/2222--------------| Play this once with below timing
Chord diagramE MajorE|-------------0000----------------------7777/2222/0000--------------|

Play the chords with this timing:
(x46600)
     Whoever put that fist in the square
                  688
Must have been a good friend to the mayor
(x799xx)          (799877)
    Driving by spanish roundabout art
   (244322)    (022100)
It's gotta be who you know...
