    B             Gb
You cut me down a tree
    E                  B
And brought it back to me
    Abm                 Gb
And that's what made me see
      E           B
Where I was going wrong
                Gb
You put me on a shelf
    E               B
And kept me for yourself
      Abm          Gb
I can only blame myself
    E              B
You can only blame me


    E               B
And I could write a song
  Abm           Gb
a hundred miles long
      E                B
Well, that's where I belong
    Abm           Gb
And you belong to me
    E                B
And I could write it down
   Abm            Gb
Or spread it all around
    E                 B
Get lost and then get found
   Abm              Gb  B
Or swallowed in the sea


    B           Gb
You put me on a line
    E              B
And hung me out to dry
    Abm                 Gb
And darling that's when I
  E              B
Decided to go to see you
                   Gb
You cut me down to size
    E            B
And opened up my eyes
Abm        Gb
Made me realize
     E           B
What I could not see


    E               B
And I could write a book
    Abm                  Gb
The one they'll say that shook
    E                  B
The world, and then it took
   Abm               Gb
It took it back from me
    E                B
And I could write it down
    Abm           Gb
Or spread it all around
    E                 B
Get lost and then get found
    Abm                 Gb
And you'll come back to me
    E                B
Not swallowed in the sea

Interlude -x2-: Dbm  E  B  Gb

    E               B
And I could write a song
  Abm           Gb
a hundred miles long
      E                B
Well, that's where I belong
    Abm             Gb
And you belong with me
     E                     B
The streets you're walking on
  Abm             Gb
a thousand houses long
      E                B
Well, that's where I belong
    Abm             Gb
And you belong with me
        E             B
Oh what good is it to live
     Abm             Gb
With nothing left to give
   E              B
Forget but not forgive
    Abm            Gb
Not loving all you see
        E                     B
Oh the streets you're walking on
  Abm             Gb
a thousand houses long
     E                B
Well that's where I belong
    Abm             Gb
And you belong with me
    E                B
Not swallowed in the sea


Abm             Gb
You belong with me
    E                B
Not swallowed in the sea
      Abm             B
Yeah, you belong with me
    E                B
Not swallowed in the sea

  1. If you need it a bit lower, I suggest transposing -4

  2. dionejasper

    Easier if you transpose it up one half step!

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.
