Hey, leave a message

Verse:
CC chord
Hey, call me back
         AmAm chord
When you get this

Or when you've got a minute
                 CC chord     GG chord
We really need to talk
 CC chord
Wait, you know what
              AmAm chord
Maybe just forget it
                      FF chord
Cause by the time you get this
                    CC chord       GG chord
Your number might be blocked

Pre-Chorus:
 AmAm chord                CC chord
Stay and blah blah blah
         FF chord                       CC chord GG chord
You just want what you can't have
   AmAm chord                  CC chord
No wait, I'll call the cops
             FF chord                      CC chord GG chord
If you don't stop I'll call your dad

Happy birthday by the way
         FF chord               GG chord              CC chord
It's not you it's me and all that other bullxxxx

Look, now I know we could've done it better
                        FF chord
But we can't change the weather
                          CC chord     GG chord
And the weather's come and gone
CC chord                                       AmAm chord
Books don't make sense if you read them backwards
                      FF chord
You'll single out the wrong words
                       CC chord      GG chord
Like you mishear all my songs

         AmAm chord                 CC chord
You hear stay and blah blah blah

You just want what you can't have
   AmAm chord                  CC chord
No wait, I'll call the cops
             FF chord                      CC chord GG chord
If you don't stop I'll call your dad

  1. definitely not a bee

    Use your pointer finger for the first note(first string) your middle finger for the second note(third string) and little finger for the last note(fourth string)

  2. I find it best to end the song with C after Fm

  3. strumming pattern is DDUUDU x2 but the second C and G you only play strumming pattern once

  4. acciolovegood

    it’s only Am, C, G, and F for the whole song (not the chord progression but that’s all I know) The strumming is DDU UDU (down down up, up down up) over and over until after the 1st chorus it’s a quick mute DUDU (down up down up) then DDU UDU the rest of the song (which is how it sounds in the actual song) hope this is clear!! :)

    What a data of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious familiarity about unpredicted emotions.|

  6. -5 was easiest for me :)

  7. lil tip; if fm is too hard for you, try dm, it’s easy and it’s quick to switch chords

  8. in case anyone wants to do a clean version of this song, you can replace bullxxxx with nonsense

    • I said “it’s not you it’s me, I tried to put this nicely. Was that nicely? Was is babe?”

  9. Honestly, the Fm is so satisfying, like I low key play it just to use it lol

  10. I LOVE BILLIE!;)

  11. Definitely not a hornet

    I’m having a little trouble playing Fm, any tips?

    • try dm, it’s basically f but it’s much easier to switch between f and dm (i’m not sure how to explain it so if u don’t know what it looks like google it lmao sorry)

    • apricot-princess

      what I do is play F normally
      which is…
      4| empty
      3| finger one on fret one
      2| empty
      1| finger 2 on fret two
      but I just add my pinky onto the third fret, fourth string or slide my wrist down and use my ring finger there instead.
      hope I helped :)
      also E natural sucks so I use Em which sounds fine so yeah I know a lot of people struggle with E (including myself)

  12. coolbeans15

    i need more of her songs on here :,)

  13. YESSSS!
