You with the sad eyes, don't be discouraged
     F            Am           G

        Am       G                   F     C                   
And the darkness inside you make you feel so small

So don't be afraid to let them show
     F  C       F  C          Gsus4            Am
Your true colors, True colors are beautiful, like a Rainbow

So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors, true colors

  1. Tropical Uke

    For those of you wondering, for the strumming pattern I just do one down stroke for each of the chords. I think it sounds more dramatic that way. Hope it helps. :)

  2. For the first three lines, it sounds really good if you slowly pick each string . Also use it on ‘like a rainbow’

  3. Such a great song ! I love it.

  4. Tom Cabanski

    Gsus4 is just add your pinkie on the last string to g. Super easy.

  5. I’m pretty sure it’s “I see your true colors” as she’s does, not “I’ll see…” like she thinks she will.
    Also the second verse isn’t just “whispers” it’s “show me a smile then, don’t be unhappy can’t remember when I last saw you laughing…”

  6. Anybody else here cuz of pride

  7. peaceful_thinking3

    -5 and 0 are the simplest for and me and I think they sound the best

  8. What strumming pattern should we use

  9. ghostnoodles~

    I like using Gsus4, c, e7, am at the ending….

    It sounds more dramatic

  10. Carterlmusic

    Do we use a capo?

  11. It sounds better if the intro would be Am-G-C-F :)

  12. luv this song ?❤?which is the easiest transpose?

  13. Becca7611

    yes it wound be great to have all the chords but it ended up working for me

  14. I know its so hard to scroll up and down in thesame time while struming/plying the song

  15. Totally agree with above. Would love to have chords all the way thru.

  16. dov.softball77

    It needs the chords all the way through. It takes away from the song when you have to stop to keep scrolling up and down

  17. Thank you for sharing. I like this version and I am having fun with it!

  18. What happened to the rest of the song?

  19. Would be really great to have the chords all the way through :)
