ERIC CHURCH - Mr. Misunderstood

This song is from the album Mr. Misunderstood(2015), released on 06 November 2015.
I really liked the sudden tempo change in the song. The production was really interesting, it had the right amount of suspense and color that made the song very enjoyable. The vocals were pretty good, it sounded like it belonged.

[INTRO] G C G C
[VERSE]
G
Hey there, weird kid in your high-top shoes
                C
Sitting in the back of the class; I was just like you
G
Always left out, never fit in
   C
Owning that path you're walking in
G              C    G          C
Mr. Misunderstood, Mr. Misunderstood

G
Now, your buddies get their rocks off on Top 40 radio
        C
But you love your daddy's vinyl, old-time rock and roll
G                                       C
Elvis Costello, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and think Jeff Tweedy is one bad mother
G            C     G           C
Mr. Misunderstood, Mr. Misunderstood

[CHORUS]
          D
One day you'll lead the charge, you'll lead the band
C                     D
Guitar Hero with lightning hands
           D
And the girls will like your tattoos and the veins in your arms
            C                G
They'll be helpless to your musical charms
G                             C
And they'll all hold up their hands
      G                C
And they'll all wanna dance
     G              C   G            C
With Mr. Misunderstood, Mr. Misunderstood

[VERSE]
G                 C                       G         C
First time I met Alabama Hannah, I was skinny as a rail
G                     C                       G                     C
Red hair tied up in a blue bandana; she was hotter than the devil's Hell
G                     C                  G                    C
She turned me on to Back Porch Pickers, Jackson Pollock, and gin
G                      C                      G                  C
Her daddy didn't trust my intentions, so he turned to his daddy's old .410
      G           C     G          C
I'm Mr. Misunderstood, Mr. Misunderstood

[CHORUS]
        D
Had an axe to grind, so off I went
C                        G
Mad at the sun for coming up again
 D
I lost religion, found my soul in the blues
              C            G
Rubbed the velvet off my blue suede shoes
        G                       C
Yeah, everybody held up their hands
            G                   C
And every soul on Beale Street danced
      G         C       G         C
With Mr. Misunderstood, Mr. Misunderstood

[VERSE]
G                          C
So I went with it like a colt on my Plymouth
             G                   C
Through the glass behind my rear-view
G                     C                     G       C
Took a left when the world went right down 16th Avenue
G                        C
Played with fire and I played on ledges
         G                        C
Every circus, stage, and county fair
           G                C                    G                C
I tried to file my points, sand my edges, and I just grew out my hair
    G            C        G            C
I'm Mr. Misunderstood, I'm Mr. Misunderstood

[CHORUS]
           D
They're standing in line, chasing the buzz
        C                      G
Til the next big things and already was
      D
And hell if they know what they're trying to find
       C                     G
If it ain't that same old, been-done kind
       G                          C
Yeah, gives the head-scratchers fits
          G                       C
Wondering how in the hell they missed
G              C   G          C
Mr. Misunderstood, Mr. Misunderstood

[VERSE]
G
Hey there, weird kid in your high-top shoes
               C
Sitting in the back of the class; I was just like you
G             C
Mr. Misunderstood (I understand)
G             C
Mr. Misunderstood (I understand)
G             C
Mr. Misunderstood (I understand)
G             C
Mr. Misunderstood (I understand)
G             C
Mr. Misunderstood (I understand)
G                 C
I'm Mr. Misunderstood (let's go out of here)
