                                                         by St. Vincent

At the time of this post, there were no accurate tabs/chords for this song on the 
internet, so I decided to serve the people with my first post. This song can be 
found on St. Vincent’s album “Strange Mercy” or the awesome video at 

"Anything we can do to raise consciousness and help end the oppression of women 
worldwide is a cause I am fully behind. I chose the track 'Cheerleader' because I 
think it speaks to not wanting to be an idle object anymore. It’s about taking 
control of your own life and not kowtowing to the desires of others." 

- St. Vincent (Annie Clark)

It’s not exactly a beginner’s song but as long as you know your major and minor 
bar chords and the note names on the guitar, you’ll be good to go. Please enjoy, 
although stripped of it’s glorious effects.

(Intro)    |  G    Bm   |  Bb    Am   |

G           Bm
I've had good times
Bb             Am
With some bad guys
F           Am
I've told whole lies
F       D      
With a half smile
G            Bm
Held your bare bones
Bb         Am
With my clothes on
F              Am
I've thrown rocks
F                 D              
That hit both my arms

Bb                            Am
                I don't know what good it serves
Bb                           Am
        Pouring my purse in the dirt

            G                          Bb                      C
But I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be your cheerleader no more
            G                          Bb              Am
But I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be your cheerleader no more

G       Bm      Bb      Am

G              Bm      
I've played dumb
Bb                 Am
When I knew better
F          Am
Tried so hard
F              D
Just to be clever
G        Bm
I know honest thieves
Bb     Am
I call family
F           Am
I've seen America
F          D
With no clothes on

            G                      Bb                C
But I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
            G                      Bb                Am
But I-I-I-I-I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more

Bb                              Am
        I don't know what I deserve
Bb                              Am
        But for you I could work

Bb                              Am
Cause I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
Bb                              Am
I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
G                       Bb           C
I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
G                       Bb            C
I don't wanna be a dirt eater no more
G                       Bb            C
I don't wanna be a dirt eater no more
G                       Bb           Am ...
I don't wanna be a cheerleader no more
