Put on Some Speed

*** Introduction:

*** Verse 1:
G Am C2 (G)
There'll be no payoff today
G Am C2 (G)
I'm just refusing to pay
G Am C2
I'm gonna stand here and say
D Am
"C'mon, do your worst!"
D Am
Of course they'll never hear me
D C2 G
But we know 'bout that from the first

*** Verse 2:

I had some lessons to learn G Am C2 (G)
But they are not your concern G Am C2 (G)
I think at least you'd admit G Am C2
You get what you choose D Am
'Cause I'm out here watching D Am
Walking around in your shoes D C2 G

*** Chorus:

No one is running for help
'Cause no one saves you from yourself
You've got solutions you need
Well, put on some speed


*** Verse 3:

You never knew me at all G Am C2 (G)
Now you tell me who's at fault G Am C2 (G)
I left that book on the table G Am C2
For you to read, but D Am
You've got to be willing D Am
To pick up the language at least D C2 G

*** Chorus:

No one is running for help
'Cause no one saves you from yourself
You've got solutions you need
Well, put on some speed

*** Bridge

There's not a "they" who's gonna stop it
That idea went with Adam
Right after the fall
No longer can we call on our fathers
We're all alone, and it's all for all

*** Verse 4 (Instrumental):

. G Am C2 (G)
. G Am C2 (G)
. G Am C2
. D Am
. D Am
. D C2 G


*** Chorus:

No one is running for help
'Cause no one saves you from yourself
You've got solutions you need
Well, put on some speed
