Basket Case | Green Day


<< Go Back

This is a great song from Green Day. We play this song in the key of “Eb”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


Intro\Verse:
Eb               Bb
Do you have the time
C                G
To listen to me whine
Ab                 Eb                Bb
About nothing and everything all at once
Eb            Bb
I am one of those
C              G
Melodramatic fools
Ab                Eb               Bb
Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it

Chorus:
Ab           Bb              Eb
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Ab           Bb                Eb
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
Ab              Bb
It all keeps adding up
Eb             C#    C   (drums come in)
I think I'm cracking up
Ab             Bb
Am I just paranoid?
            Eb
I'm just stoned

Interlude: x2
Eb Bb C Bb

Verse:
I went to a shrink
To analyze my dreams
She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
I went to a whore
He said my life is a bore
And quit my whining 'cause it's bringing her down

Chorus x1

Interlude: x4
Eb Bb C Bb 

Bridge:
Ab             Bb
Grasping to control
(quiet)
So you better hold on

Interlude x2

Chorus x1

Outro: 
Eb C Ab Eb Bb x4
Ab Eb Bb (Let ring..)
