The Chords

Tim Fite
Big Mistake

Capo VI

C: x32010 -or- x32013
Em: 022000 -or- 022003
Am: x02210 -or- x02x15
F: 133211

The alternate chords, while a bit tricky to play, sound more like the record.

The entire song, save the "hold Am" parts, is:
C Em Am F

Show me the best that you got, and I'll show you one better 
Show me your reddest rose, and I'll show you one redder 
Tell me a dirty joke, and I'll laugh it off lightly 
If I tell you a dirty joke, you might not like me 

Everyone gets to make one big mistake 
And if you're waitin' on me 
Well, I guess you're gonna have to wait (hold Am)

Ti-time-timing is everything if you've got nothin' but time 
(I got nothin' but time) 
And a lie don't mean nothin' if nobody knows when you're lying 
(lie when you lie) 
So lie when you do, lie when you don't 
Lie when you didn't, lie till you lie, lie, lie, lie 
They're wonderin' if anybody else is lying 

(end Am)

Everyone gets to make one big mistake 
And if you're waitin' on me 
Well, I guess you're gonna have to wait (hold Am)
'Cause I'm savin' mine up for a very, very special day 
When I can fuck it all up in the most spectacular way  (hold Am)

Everyone gets to make one big mistake 
And if you're waitin' on me 
Well, I guess you're gonna have to wait 
And wait, and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait 

Everyone gets to make one big mistake 
(mistake, mistake, mistake, mistake, mistake, mistake, mistake, mistake) 
And if you're waitin' on me 
Well, I guess you're gonna have to wait (you're gonna have to wait) 
'Cause I'm savin' mine up for a very, very special day 
(it doesn't even matter if it don't even matter) 
When I can fuck it all up in the most spectacular way (hold Am)

Show me the best that you got, and I'll show you one better 
Show me your reddest rose, and I'll show you one redder (hold Am)
Tell me a dirty joke, and I'll laugh it off lightly 
If I tell you a dirty joke, you might not like me (hold Am)
