Intro:
Em | G | Dsus2 | Cadd9 | Asus2

Verse 1:
Em                     G
No one knows what it's like 
          Dsus2
To be the bad man 
          Cadd9
To be the sad man 
  Asus2
Behind blue eyes
    Em                      G
And no one knows what it's like 
      Dsus2
To be hated 
      Cadd9
To be fated 
           Asus2
To telling only lies 

Chorus 1:
       Cadd9   D
But my dreams 
               G  
They aren't as empty 
      Cadd9      D        E  Esus4  E  Esus4  E    
As my conscience seems to be 
       Bm          Cadd9 
I have hours, only lonely 
           D              
My love is vengeance 
             Asus2
That's never free 
 
Verse 2:
(same chords)
No one knows what it's like 
To feel these feelin's 
Like I do 
And I blame you 
No one bites back as hard 
On their anger 
None of my pain an' woe 
Can show through 

Chorus 2:
       Cadd9   D
But my dreams 
               G  
They aren't as empty

As my conscience seems to be 
       Bm          Cadd9 
I have hours, only lonely 
           D              
My love is vengeance 
             Asus2
That's never free

       Em     G       Dsus2  
Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it

Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it

Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it

Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it

Verse  3:
(same chords)
No one knows what it's like 
To be mistreated 
To be defeated 
Behind blue eyes 
And no one knows how to say
That they're sorry 
An' don't worry 
I'm not telling lies 

Chorus 3:
       Cadd9   D
But my dreams 
               G  
They aren't as empty 
      Cadd9      D        E  Esus4  E  Esus4  E    
As my conscience seems to be 
       Bm          Cadd9 
I have hours, only lonely 
           D              
My love is vengeance 
             Asus2
That's never free 

Verse 4:
Em                     G
No one knows what it's like

To be the bad man

To be the sad man

    1. Right Derek, it’s pretty useful to learn a song. Alternatively, you can learn music theory and how to read a music sheet, but that takes a bit more time. And guitarists are lazy haha!

  1. As an avid bassist, I always love hearing alternate takes of an original song. Limp Bizkit did a good job recording The Who’s original recording. I actually like LB’s version better. Thanks for sharing the chord progression, actually comping to it and playing over it with my JamMan Looper.

    1. I really love both versions to be honest. I hesitated to put The Who’s version, I think it belongs here as well. Have fun with the JamMan, it’s a cool device!
