Taylor Swift - Mean Chords

[verse 1]
C#m             B
You, with your words like knives and swords
A
And weapons that you use against me
C#m        B                 A
You, have knocked me off my feet again
A
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
C#m             B                     A
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
A
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
C#m   B                     A
You, pickin' on the weaker man

[pre-chorus 1]
B                        E               A      B
 Well you can take me down with just one single blow
    A
But you don't know, what you don't know...

[chorus]
E       B       C#m                  A
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E       B       C#m                      A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   E      D E
Why you gotta be so mean?

[verse 2]
C#m             B
You, with your switching sides and
     A
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
C#m        B              A
You, have pointed out my flaws again

As if I don't already see them
C#m          B
I walk with my head down
          A
Tryin' to block you out
         A
'Cause I never impress you
C#m     B           A
I just wanna feel okay again

[pre-chorus 2]
B
I bet you got pushed around
E        A        B
Somebody made you cold
B
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
A
You can't lead me down that road
                   A
And you don't know what you don't know

[chorus]
E       B       C#m                  A
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E       B       C#m                      A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   E     D E   B   A
Why you gotta be so mean?

[bridge]
          B
And I can see you years from now in a bar
E               A            B
 Talkin' over a football game
B
With that same big loud opinion
E            A        B
But nobody's listening
B
Washed up and ranting about the
E      B        A
Same old bitter things
B                                 E B    A
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I  can't sing
               E    B  C#m
But all you are is mean

[interlude]
A              E            B          C#m
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
    A                 E         B         C#m        A
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean
    E       B       C#m                  A
But someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
    E          B                A      A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean,  yeah--ah

[chorus 2]
E       B       C#m                      A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
    E          B               A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
A                   E
Why you gotta be so...Someday
B       C#m                 A
I'll be livin in a big ol' city why ya gotta be so mean
    E          B                A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean why ya gotta be so mean
E       B       C#m                      A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me why ya gotta be so mean
    E        B               A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
                   E
Why you gotta be so  mean?
