Intro: Bbmaj7 Fmaj7 Gm Fmaj7

Verse 1:
Bbmaj7
Don't be that way
      Fmaj7
Fall apart twice a day
       Gm                          Fmaj7
I just wish you could feel what you say
Bbmaj7
Show, never tell
      Fmaj7
But I know you too well
        Gm                       C    Csus4   C 
Kind of mood that you wish you could sell

Chorus:
   Bbmaj7
If teardrops could be bottled
           Fmaj7
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
            Gm                              A
Told "that tight dress is what makes you a whore"
      Bbmaj7
If "I love you" was a promise
          Fmaj7
Would you break it, if you're honest
         Gm                                 C   Csus4   C 
Tell the mirror what you know she's heard before
Bbmaj7     A       Dm
Idontwannabeyouanymore

Verse 2:
Bbmaj7
Hands getting cold
       Fmaj7
Losing feeling's getting old
      Gm              Fmaj7
Was I made from a broken mold?
Bbmaj7
Hurt, I can't shake
           Fmaj7
We've made every mistake
     Gm                    C   Csus4   C 
Only you know the way that I break

Chorus:
   Bbmaj7
If teardrops could be bottled
           Fmaj7
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
            Gm                              A
Told "that tight dress is what makes you a whore"
      Bbmaj7
If "I love you" was a promise
          Fmaj7
Would you break it, if you're honest
         Gm                                 C
Tell the mirror what you know she's heard before
Bbmaj7     A
Idontwannabeyou
Bbmaj7     A
Idontwannabeyou
Bbmaj7     A           Dm
Idontwannabeyou... anymore

    D UU D works really well as a pattern and in some places like half through the second time to play the chorus do D UU D X. So it’d be “If I love you was a promise..” Is where you’d start the strum pattern with the mute. And for the second part of the second verse do the same thing. So on ” Hurt I can’t shake..” Is where you’d start to add the mute in with the pattern. Also the first half of the first verse sounds good with single down strums, and then on “Show, never tell..” Begin to strum D UU D to get into a groove. Wish y’all luck. The comments have really helped me so I’m paying it forward. ❤❤❤

  2. I agree DDU works great with this song!!!
