Walking Contradiction lyrics & chords

INTRO
A5

VERSE 1
A5 D5 G5 A5
Do as I say not as I do because
A5 D5 G5 A5 The shit's so deep you can't run away
A5 D5 G5 A5 I beg to differ on the contrary
A5 D5 G5 A5 I agree with every word that you say
A5 D5 G5 A5 Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
A5 D5 G5 A5 My wallet's fat and so is my head
A5 D5 G5 A5 Hit and run and then I'll hit you again
A5 D5 G5 A5 I'm a smart ass but I'm playing dumb

BRIDGE
A5 D5 G5 A5 x2

VERSE 2 A5 D5 G5 A5 Standards set and broken all the time
A5 D5 G5 A5 Control the chaos behind a gun
A5 D5 G5 A5 Call it as I see it even if
A5 D5 G5 A5 I was born deaf, blind and dumb
A5 D5 G5 A5 Losers winning big on the lottery
A5 D5 G5 A5 Rehab rejects still sniffing glue
A5 D5 G5 A5 Constant refutation with myself
A5 D5 G5 A5 I'm a victim of a catch 22

CHORUS
D5 G5 A5 I have no belief
D5 A5 G5 But I believe
D5 G5 A5 I'm a walking contradiction
D5 G5 A5 And I ain't got no right

A5 D5 G5 A5 x2
VERSE 3
A5 D5 G5 A5
Do as I say not as I do because
A5 D5 G5 A5 The shit's so deep you can't run away
A5 D5 G5 A5 I beg to differ on the contrary
A5 D5 G5 A5 I agree with every word that you say
A5 D5 G5 A5 Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
A5 D5 G5 A5 My wallet's fat and so is my head
A5 D5 G5 A5 Hit and run and then I'll hit you again
A5 D5 G5 A5 I'm a smart ass but I'm playing dumb

CHORUS
D5 G5 A5 I have no belief
D5 A5 G5 But I believe

How to read these chord schemes

1 - chord name, 2 - chord designation, 3 - chord scheme

Chord name

There is the name of a chord before the symbols. If it's "*" added to a name, it means that this chord is played in different positions during the song.

Chord designation

There are 6 symbols in a designation, read it from left to right. The first symbol defines the thickest string (6th string), the second symbol defines 5th string and so on.

"0" means open string

"x" means this string isnt played

"Number" means number of a fret.

Example:

x02220

6th string isnt played
5th string is open
4th string is played on 2nd fret
3rd string is played on 2nd fret
2nd string is played on 2nd fret
1st string is open

Chord scheme

Imagine that you are looking at the fret while playing guitar - the closest string to your eyes is the 6th, the thickest string. There are 6 horizontal lines defines strings, the upper one is the thinnest string (1st string).
And there are 4 lines defined frets - no exact frets numbers defined.
In some schemes there is a thick line on the left - it defines the nut.

  • "0" means open string
  • "x" means this string isnt played
  • Fat dots mean fingers positions

Example:

G5 355xxx
