You got to listen to the song to get a feeling how to strum the 
chords. It has a very distinctive strumming pattern. I love it!

Intro & parts of verses:

During the first two lines in verses, play same as intro.

Well, I stood stonelike at midnight suspended in my masquerade

And I combed my hair till it was just right and commanded the night brigade

      F        C          G             C            F           C      G    C
I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch
   F             C              G       C             F           G       C  F C F 
I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came out with my soul untouched
   G                                                   F                      Am 
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said "Sit down" I stood up   
F    G   F      C  G  C  F  C  G  C 
Ooh-ooh growin' up

Follow the same pattern from verse one.

The flag of piracy flew from my mast my sails were set wing to wing 
I had a jukebox graduate for first mate she couldn't sail but she sure could sing
I pushed B-52 and bombed `em with the blues with my gear set stubborn on standing
I broke all the rules strafed my old high school never once gave thought to 
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said “Come down” I threw up
Ooh-ooh growin' up

I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere and you know it's really hard 
to hold your breath
I lost everything I ever loved or feared I was the cosmic kid in full costume 
Well my feet they finally took root in the earth but I got me a nice little 
place in the stars
I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said “Sit down” I stood up
Ooh-ooh growin' up

End on C
