Verse
G          C        G           C
You're not punk and i'm telling everyone
G         C        D     C
Save your breath i never was one
G         C    G        C
You don't know what i'm all about
G            C        D       C
Like killing cops and reading Kerouac

They're the ones who used to call me friend

I'm coloring outside your guidelines
      A                          C               [G    A   B   C]
I was passing out while you were passing out your rules
[E           D]                     Main Riff
 1, 2, 3, 4, who's punk? what's the score?


Verse (same as first)
I got a friend, her name is Boxcar
Cigarettes and beer in El Sob
Her hair was blue, now it's green
I like her mind, she hates the scene

I listened to the Dear You re-recording while tabbing this out. So that should explain
any different words or anything like that.
