    Well I thought about the army

    same as verse 1 except for Fm chord)
    Grew a moustache and a mullet
    Got a job at chick-fillet
    Citing artistic differences
    the band broke up in May
    Fm
    And in June reformed without me 
    And they got a different name
    I nuked another grandma's apple pie
    And hung my head in shame, no

    same chords as previous verse)
    In this time of introspection
    On the eve of my election
    I say to my reflection
    God please spare me more rejection
    'Cause my peers, they criticize me
    And my ex-wives all despise me
    Try to put it all behind me
    But my redneck past is nipping at my heels
    same as previous chorus)
