Capo: 2nd fret; Key Bm

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