Intro: B Gb Abm E 

Verse:
      B
She's dropping out of school cause she don't need the grade,
      Gb
The colors in her hair don't seem to fade,
      Abm                              E
I get dressed up when I go out but she gets dressed down

      B
She's 17 I've told her I'm 20,
      Gb
I couldn't take her out cause Mom's got no money,
      Abm                                            E
It's stuff like this that makes me wish that I could change somehow

B       Gb       E
Sitting here at home, it's obvious

Chorus:
B        Gb       Dbm           B
She's so out of reach, and I'm finding it hard cause
    E
She makes me feel, makes me feel,
       Em
Like I try, like I try, like I'm trying too hard,
      B       Gb    Dbm          B
Cause I'm not being me, and it's getting me down
    E
She makes me think, makes me think,
       Em
That I try, that I try, that I'm trying too hard again
B   Gb                                 Abm   E
        Cause I'm trying too hard again

Verse:
      B
She's got a rude tattoo but she keeps it covered,
Gb
I play guitar but she's into drummers,
      Abm                                      E
She's seen my face around but she doesn't even know my name
  B 
I pierced my lip so she thinks I'm cool,
  Gb
I ripped my jeans and I dropped out of school,
  Abm                                                    E
I followed her around the town but she thinks that I'm a weirdo now

B       Gb      E
Sitting here at home, it's obvious

Chorus:
B        Gb      Dbm           B
She's so out of reach, and I'm finding it hard cause
    E
She makes me feel, makes me feel,
       Em
Like I try, like I try, like I'm trying too hard,
      B       Gb    Dbm          B
Cause I'm not being me, and it's getting me down
    E
She makes me think, makes me think,
       Em
That I try, that I try, that I'm trying too hard again

Bridge:
Abm     Gb       E
    But now, who knew?
      B                   Abm
She's in the crowd of my show
    Gb     E
Nothing to lose,
      B                            Abm
She's standing right in the front row
    Gb       E
The perfect view,
                     Em
She came along after all,
But here's something that you should know

B         Gb      Dbm           B
You're so out of reach, and I'm finding it hard cause
    E
She makes me feel, makes me feel,
         Em
Yeah she makes me feel, makes me feel

Chorus:
B        Gb      Dbm           B
She's so out of reach, and I'm finding it hard cause
    E
She makes me feel, makes me feel,
       E
Like I try, like I try, like I'm trying too hard,
      B       Gb    Dbm          B
Cause I'm not being me, and it's getting me down
    E
She makes me think, makes me think,
       Em
That I try, that I try, that I'm trying too hard again
B   Gb                                 Abm   E
       Cause I'm trying too hard again
                                B
Cause I'm trying too hard again

  1. I feel like it sounds better when you play Cmaj7 instead of Cm

  2. ThatOneGirlOnTheInternet

    It’s ROSE tattoo. Not rude tattoo.

  3. JessicaGClifford

    If you +1 and play a G instead of the FM its easier :)

  4. Kkukulele

    Picking pattern for beginning riff:

    Capo on first fret

    C string: 0-0-8-6-3-3-0-3-5-3-0-0-8-6-3-3-0-3-5

  5. I found that taking it up 1/2 a step made the chords a lot easier ! Great though :)
