Intro:
    C  G  C  G
    C  G  D  G
                                
Verse:
C       G
Old man on his way back home
C                 G
Late from work today
C       G
Far out on a dirt road
     D                 Em
And couldn't find his way
      C           G
With tears in his eyes, he knew
          C          G
There was no one in sight
      C               G
And tried to tell himself
     D           G
That it'll be alright

Chorus:
  C              Em
Why's it always darkest
 G
Right before the dawn
    C            D
If liars can be honest
      G
Then right can be wrong
      C                Em
And when you find the doorway
        G     G   C  
Are you in or you out
     C            G
You have to stand up
   D             Em
Before you fall down
     C           G
You need to get lost
   D            G
Before you get found

Interlude:
    C  G  C  G
    C  G  D  G

Verse:
C           G
Young girl with a broken heart
 C             G
Walking home alone
C          G
Teardrops made of Maybelline 


D          Em
On a goodbye note
C                G
And looking down at the shadows on the ground
    C              G
She almost didn't see
    C            G
a blue-eyed man with a flower in his hand
         D                 G
Walkin right out of her dreams

And she said

Chorus:
  C              Em
Why's it always darkest
 G
Right before the dawn
    C            D
If liars can be honest
      G
Then right can be wrong
      C                Em
And when you find the doorway
        G     G   C  
Are you in or you out
     C            G
You have to stand up
   D             Em
Before you fall down
     C           G
You need to get lost
   D            G
Before you get found

Bridge:
Em
We're never gonna know it all
Bm
Like houses, we will fall
      C
And break in stormy weather
     D
And be put back together better
Em
We're never gonna know the way
Bm
Never know which words to say
     C        C     Am     C   D
And don't you worry it'll be okay

Chorus:
  C               Em
Why's it always stormin
 G
Right before the calm
  C            Em
Why are we so lonely
   D
Before it's said and done

Chorus:
  C              Em
Why's it always darkest
 G
Right before the dawn
    C            D
If liars can be honest
      G
Then right can be wrong
      C                Em
And when you find the doorway
        G     G   C  
Are you in or you out
     C            G
You have to stand up
   D             Em
Before you fall down
     C           G
You need to get lost
   D            G
Before you get found

Outro:
    C  G  C  G

  1. These other PCs have a different screen resolution. That means you can see maybe 1024×768 and maybe they’re only seeing 800×600. This means that webpages, and just about everything they do will be a little messed up because generally nowadays things are formatted for 1024×768. This is not your error, and you sh7&udnl#821o;t worry about it. If I’m wrong, I don’t know what to tell you.

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

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
