Bastille - What Would You Do: chords

Dm
Boys and girls, wanna hear a true story?
A#
Saturday night was at this real wild party
F
There was liquor overflowin' the cup,
C
About 5 or 6 strippers trying to work for a buck.
Dm
So I took one girl outside with me,
A#
Her name was Londy, she went to Junior High with me,
F
I said, "Why you up in there dancing for cash?
C
I guess a whole lot's changed since I seen you last."
She said...

Chorus:
Dm
What would you do if your son was at home
A#
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor,
F
Cause he's hungry and the only way to feed him is to
C
Sleep with a man for a little bit of money?
Dm
And his daddy's gone in and out of lock down,
A#
I ain't got a job now, he's just smokin' rock now,
F
So for you this is just a good time
C
But for me this is what I call life

Girl, you ain't the only one to have a baby
That's no excuse to be living all crazy
So she stared me right square in the eye
And said, "Everyday, I wake up, hoping to die"
She said, "They're gonna know about pain
'Cause me and my sister ran away
so our daddy couldn't rape us
Before I was a teenager
I done been through more of that
shit you can't even relate to"

Chorus:
"What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
'Cause he's hungry, and the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man for a little bit of money?
And his daddy's gone in and out of lockdown
I ain't got a job now; he's just smokin' rock now
So for you, this is just a good time
But for me, this is what I call life"

Dm
(What would you do?) Get up off my feet
and stop making tired excuses
A#
(What would you do?) Get up off my feet
and stop making tired excuses
F
(What would you do?) Get up off my feet
and stop making tired excuses
C
(What would you do?) Get up off my feet!

Chorus:
"What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
'Cause he's hungry,
and the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man for a little bit of money?
And his daddy's gone in and out of lockdown
I ain't got a job now; he's just smokin' rock now
So for you, this is just a good time
But for me, this is what I call life"

What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
'Cause he's hungry,
and the only way to feed him is to
Sleep with a man for a little bit of money?
And his daddy's gone in and out of lockdown
I ain't got a job now; he's just smokin' rock now
So for you, this is just a good time
But for me, this is what I call life"

What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
'Cause he's hungry...
