Intro:
    Am C F
    Am C F G
    Am G C F
    C F C G


Am                        C      F
I had a dream about a burning house
Am
You were stuck inside
               F   C G
I couldn't get you out
Am                     G      C    F
I laid beside you and pulled you close
      C                   F C    G
And the two of us went up in smoke

Pre-Chorus:
F            Am                  C         F
Love isn't all that it seems I did you wrong
F                   Am         C              F
I'll stay here with you, until this dream is gone

Chorus:
C
I've been sleepwalking
G
Been wandering all night
Am                                     C
Trying to take what's lost and broken and
     F
Make it right
C
I've been sleepwalking
G
Too close to the fire
             Am                                   C  F
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
F               C    G
In this burning house

Verse:
Am                             C        F
See you at a party and you look the same
Am
I could take you back
                    F  C    G
But people don't ever change
Am                       G   C    F
Wish that we could go back in time
     C                           F    C   G
And I'd be the one you thought you'd find

Pre-Chorus:
F            Am                  C         F
Love isn't all that it seems I did you wrong
F                   Am         C              F
I'll stay here with you, until this dream is gone

Chorus:
C
I've been sleepwalking
G
Been wandering all night
Am                                     C
Trying to take what's lost and broken and
     F
Make it right
C
I've been sleepwalking
G
Too close to the fire
             Am                                   C  F
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
F               C    G
In this burning house

Bridge:
C                            F
The flames are getting bigger now
F                 G
In this burning house
C -walk down to-  Am
I can hold on to you somehow
F                  G
In this burning house
       C  -walk down to-  Am 
Oh when I don't want to wake up
F                G
In this burning house


C
I've been sleepwalking
G
Been wandering all night
Am                                     C
Trying to take what's lost and broken and
     F
Make it right
C
I've been sleepwalking
G
Too close to the fire
         Am                                   C  F
But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
F                  G
In this burning house

  1. For the pre-chorus it’s sounds better if you do
    F C G F
    “Love isn’t all that it seems I did you wrong
    F C G
    I’ll stay here with you until this dream is
    F
    gone”

  2. Down-down-up-up-down-up… and for the pre chorus do plucking with all chords

  3. What’s the picking pattern

  4. Sp00ky Jim Christmas

    ~For anyone asking~
    The strum pattern is d d u-u-d-u

  5. Gretchen Weiner

    What is the strum pattern

  6. Anybody have a good strumming pattern?

  7. just go down on the uke once with your thumb on each string, otherwise it is jolly when this is a sad song

  8. Strum pattern?

  9. so happy that this song is FIANALLY in a tab version, but for the last two verses the C chord is missing in “this (c) burning house”. It shows in the first two but it was missing in the last.
