This is actually a piano song, but it is possible to play it with a guitar.
However, the original part is more complex than that.

The is almost always the same pattern throughout the song, except
for the duu-duu-duu part where the two first bars must be 
doubled in time (and keep the note F# as the chord) before 
changing to the two others.     

[lyrics]
Bad day, looking for a way
Oh, looking for the great escape
Gets in his car and drives away
Far from all the things that we are
Puts on a smile and breaths it in and breaths it out
He says bye-bye, bye to all of the noise
Oh he says bye-bye bye to all of the noise

Hey child, things are looking down,
That's OK you don't need to win anyways
Don't be afraid just eat up all the gray
and it will fade away
Don't let yourself fall down

Bad day, looking for the great escape
He says bad day, looking for the great escape
On a bad day, looking for the great escape
Great escape
