Chorus:
CC chord                       FF chord            CC chord
Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck.
CC chord                       GG chord
Some nights I call it a draw.
CC chord                            FF chord                 CC chord
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle.
FF chord              CC chord                 GG chord
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off
 
 
       FF chord         CC chord           FF chord         CC chord
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost.
               FF chord         CC chord          GG chord
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh.
FF chord          CC chord          FF chord        CC chord
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?

Most nights, I don't know anymore
 
Verse:
CC chord
This is it, boys. This is war.
FF chord            CC chord
What are we waiting for?
FF chord             CC chord                 GG chord
Why don't we break the rules already?
       CC chord
I was never one to believe the hype.
FF chord                   CC chord
Save that for the black and white.
       FF chord                    CC chord
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked,
     GG chord
But here they come again to jack my style
               CC chord
And that's alright
            FF chord           CC chord
I found a martyr in my bed tonight.
    FF chord                    CC chord
She stops my bones from wondering
     GG chord
Just who I am, who I am, who I am.
CC chord         FF chord     CC chord      FF chord      GG chord
Yeah, oh who am I    mmmm   mmmmm
 
Chorus - same pattern as first -:
Well, some nights, I wish that this all would end
Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights, I always win, I always win...
 
       FF chord         CC chord           FF chord         CC chord
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost.
               FF chord         CC chord          GG chord
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh.
FF chord          CC chord          FF chord        CC chord
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
FF chord                     GG chord       CC chord    FF chord  CC chord  FF chord  CC chord  GG chord
Most nights, I don't know anymore
 
Interlude: CC chord-FF chord-CC chord-FF chord-CC chord-FF chord-GG chord
 
So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?
No. When I see stars, that's all they are.
 
                          GG chord
When I hear songs, they sound like a swan.
         FF chord           CC chord            FF chord            GG chord
So come on. Oh, come on. Oh, come on. Oh, come on!
 
Verse - same pattern as first -:
That is it, guys, that is all.
Five minutes in and I'm bored again.
Ten years of this, and I'm not sure if anybody understands.
This is not one for the folks back home.
I'm sorry to leave, Mom, I had to go.
Who the xxxx wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?
 
Bridge:
             FF chord
My heart is breaking for my sister
         CC chord
And the con that she called love.
            FF chord
But when I look into my nephew's eyes,
FF chord
Man, you wouldn't believe
CC chord                                      GG chord
The most amazing things that can come from.
                 CC chord    FF chord   CC chord   FF chord   CC chord   GG chord
Some terrible nights.
 
Outro - same pattern as before -:
The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me
I called you up, but we'd both agree
It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance.

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues. Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick.
