Verse 1:
       BmBm chord
It was 6:48, I was walking home
 
Stepped through the gate, and I'm all alone
        EmEm chord
I had chicken on the plate, but the food was cold
 
Then I covered up my face so that no one knows
DD chord
I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble
AA chord
But then came trouble
         BmBm chord
When my mom walked into the living room
 
She said, "Boy, you gotta tell me what they did to you"
          EmEm chord
I said, "You don't wanna know the things I had to do"
 
She said, "Son, you gotta tell me why you're black and blue"
DD chord
I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble
AA chord
But then came trouble
 
Pre-Chorus:
        BmBm chord
And my heart was pumping, chest was screaming
  EmEm chord
Mind was running, air was freezing
 DD chord
Put my hands up, put my hands up
   GbGb chord
I told this kid I'm ready for a fight
 
Chorus:
  BmBm chord                          EmEm chord
Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain
                DD chord
Every time you curse my name
            GbGb chord                   EmEm chord
I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen
  BmBm chord                           EmEm chord
Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground
                 DD chord
It's only gonna let you down
            GbGb chord
Come the lightning and the thunder
 EmEm chord                           BmBm chord
You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
 
Verse 2:
         BmBm chord
Well I squared him up, left my chest exposed
 
He threw a quick left hook and it broke my nose
        EmEm chord
I had thick red blood running down my clothes
 
And a sick, sick look 'cause I like it though
DD chord
I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble
AA chord
But then came trouble
 
Pre-Chorus:
       BmBm chord
And my heart was pumping, chest was screaming
 EmEm chord
Mind was running, nose was bleedin'
 DD chord
Put my hands up, put my hands up
GbGb chord
I told this kid I'm ready for a fight
 
Chorus:
  BmBm chord                           EmEm chord
Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain
                DD chord
Every time you curse my name
            GbGb chord                    EmEm chord
I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen
 BmBm chord                           EmEm chord
Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground
                DD chord
It's only gonna let you down
           GbGb chord
Come the lightning and the thunder
 EmEm chord                           BmBm chord
You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
 
Verse 3:
       BmBm chord
It was 6:48, he was walking home
 
With the blood on his hand from my broken nose
           EmEm chord
But like every other day, he was scared to go
 
Back to his house 'cause his pops was home
DD chord
Drowning his troubles in whiskey bubbles
AA chord
Just looking for trouble
              BmBm chord
Well, there's no excuse for the things he did
 
But there's a lot at home that he's dealing with
             EmEm chord
Because his dad's been drunk since he was a kid
 
And I hope one day that he'll say to him
DD chord
Put down those bubbles and that belt buckle
AA chord
In this broken bubble
 
Chorus:
 BmBm chord                           EmEm chord
Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain
                DD chord
Every time you curse my name
            GbGb chord                    EmEm chord
I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen
  BmBm chord                           EmEm chord
Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground
                DD chord
It's only gonna let you down
          GbGb chord
Come the lightning and the thunder
  EE chord                           BmBm chord
You're the one who'll suffer, suffer

Please 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 try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
