I remember your bare feet down the hallway

I remember your little laugh
                 AmAm chord 
Race cars on the kitchen floor

I remember you dancing before bed time then jumping on me waking me up
                     AmAm chord 
I can still feel you hold my hand
FF chord           GG chord                       CC chord 
Little man, from even that moment I knew
                           AmAm chord 
You fought it hard like an army guy
  FF chord                      GG chord 
Remember I leaned in and whispered to you

FF chord                  GG chord 
Come on baby with me

We're gonna fly away from here

Verse:
CC chord              AmAm chord                  FF chord 
I remember the drive home when the blind hope
          GG chord                      CC chord 
Turned to crying and screaming, "Why?"
                        AmAm chord 
Flowers piled up in the worst way
             FF chord                   GG chord 
No one knows what to say about a beautiful boy who died
 
Verse:
CC chord                    AmAm chord 
And it's about to be Halloween
             FF chord            GG chord                        CC chord 
You could be anything you wanted if you were still here
               AmAm chord              FF chord 
I remember the last day when I kissed your face
  GG chord 
I whispered in your ear

FF chord                      GG chord                          CC chord 
 Out of this curtained room in this hospital grey
                 FF chord 
We'll just disappear
                  GG chord 
Come on baby with me
                   CC chord       FF chord 
We're gonna fly away from here

Bridge:
            FF chord                GG chord                CC chord 
What if I'm standing in your closet trying to talk to you?
          FF chord                GG chord                    CC chord 
What if I kept the hand me downs you won't grow into?
              FF chord                   GG chord             CC chord 
And what if I really thought some miracle would see us through?

But what if the miracle was even getting one moment with you

    there something wrong it doesn’t sound right

      Hello Nicole, I have just tested it again and it sounds good to me… So not really sure what the issue is. You can change the key of the song by using the transposer.

  • nikkiuke says:

    the order of the chords like in the chorus and the second verse it doesn’t sound right. I think it should go ” F come n baby with G me we’re gonna fly away C from here F. you were my G best four C years “

    • Jonas says:

      Hi Nicole, I have just found the reason for the mix up! I’ve used the acoustic version of this song to get the chords! I have just listened to the studio version and it is one key down. I have now changed the chords to the same key as the studio recording. They should sound ok now! Can you confirm? Thank you for your help!

  • nikkiuke says:

    yes its perfect thanks!

  • Ellielovesuke says:

    love this! Thank you so much!

  • Sarahbeth says:

    this song is so sad but so easy to play I love it thank you!

  • Rowiee says:

    The chords are good, but the tab doesn’t sound right!

  • Nicola says:

    The bridge sounds better (in my opinion) if you play this instead :)

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
