Stupid Boy    (video)    (intro)

 

G - D - A (2x)

 

G D A

1. Well, she was precious like a flower,

G D A

she grew wild, wild but innocent.

G D A

A perfect prayer in a desperate hour,

G D A

she was everything beautiful and different.

 

G - D A

Stupid boy, you can't fence that in,

G - D A

stupid boy, it's like holdin' back the wind.

 

G D A

She laid her heart and soul right in your hands,

G D A

and you stole her every dream and you crushed her plans.

G D

She never even knew she had a choice,

Bm A G

and that's what happens when the only voice she hears

D A

is telling her she can't.

 

- - - - G - D - A G - D - A

Stupid boy ! Stupid boy !

 

- G D A

2. So what makes you think you could take a life,

G D A

and just push it, push it around ?

G D A

I guess to build yourself up so high,

G D A

you had to take her and break her down. Well.....

And you stupid boy, oh, you always had to be right,

G D A

and now you lost the only thing that ever made you feel
