Intro:
Bm
I got your picture
- Bm -
I'm coming with you
        G
Dear Maria, count me in
              D                                     A
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle and I'm the pen

Verse:
D
When the lights go off
            G
I wanna watch the way you take the stage by storm
Em                                       A
The way you wrap those boys around your finger
                            D
Go on and play the leader
                                               G
Cause you know it's what you're good at
                              Em
The low road for the fast track
                             A      A/Bb
Make every second last

Chorus:
Bm
Cause I got your picture
- Bm -
I'm coming with you
        G
Dear Maria, count me in
              D                                     A
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle and I'm the pen
           Bm                                       G
Make it count when I'm the one who's selling you out
            D
Cause it feels like stealing hearts
                  A
Calling your name from the crowd

Verse:
D
Then in the field
                                        G
You'll be the showgirl of the home team
                Em
I'll be the narrator
          A
Telling another tale of the American dream
D
I see your name in lights
G
We could make you a star
Em
Girl, we'll take the world by storm
    A                  A/Bb
It isn't that hard

Chorus:
Bm
Cause I got your picture
- Bm -
I'm coming with you
        G
Dear Maria, count me in
              D                                     A
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle and I'm the pen
           Bm                                       G
Make it count when I'm the one who's selling you out
            D
Cause it feels like stealing hearts
                  A
Calling your name from the crowd

Bridge:
D
Take a breath
           A            Gbm
Don't it sound so easy?
G
Never had a doubt
             G      A       D           A       Gbm  G      G    A
Now I'm going crazy watching from the floor
D                                   A             Gbm   G
Take a breath and let the rest come easy
G
Never settle down
               G             A             D        A      Gbm       G
Cause the cash flow leaves me always wanting more

Chorus:
Bm
Cause I got your picture
- Bm -
I'm coming with you
        G
Dear Maria, count me in
              D                                     A
There's a story at the bottom of this bottle and I'm the pen
           Bm                                       G
Make it count when I'm the one who's selling you out
            D
Cause it feels like stealing hearts
                  A
Calling your name from the crowd

  1. Once again, strumming pattern?

  2. Anonymous person

    Dude the lyrics is wrong
    it’s *take a breath and the rest come easy

  3. Justrash I don’t know if you’ll like it, but you could, in my opinion, substitute a Gbm (F#m) chord for that…

  4. Are there any good substitutes for the Bm chord in this song?

    • twenty-one-phans

      A lot of the time I just play F instead, it doesn’t sound exactly the same, but it’s close enough for me, then again I have a concert uke, not a soprano

  5. youraverageloser

    Strumming Pattern??

    • dodieismywife

      and also you can change it for parts like in the chorus to make it suit the timing thing better idk

  6. little-deeer

    a bit easier to play in -2

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.
