Intro: Bbm Gb Gb Db - x2 -

Verse:
         Bbm           Gb
Leave me out with the waste,
        Db          Ab
This is not what I do.
         Bbm            Gb
It's the wrong kind of place
      Db           Ab
To be thinking of you.
         Bbm    Gb
It's the wrong time,
    Db        Ab
For somebody new
       Bbm    Gb
It's a small crime,
         Db      Ab
And I've got no excuse.

Chorus:
        Bbm    Gb
Is that alright?
Db       Ab                  Bbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded.
        Gb
Is that alright, yeah?
Db            Ab                             Bbm
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it?
         Gb
Is that alright?
Db       Ab                  Bbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded
        Gb
Is that alright?
        Db            Ab
Is that alright with you?

Verse:
         Bbm           Gb
Leave me out with the waste,
        Db          Ab
This is not what I do.
         Bbm            Gb
It's the wrong kind of place
      Db           Ab
To be cheating on you.
         Bbm    Gb
It's the wrong time,
    Db        Ab
She's pulling me through.
       Bbm    Gb
It's a small crime,
         Db      Ab
And I've got no excuse.

Chorus:
        Bbm    Gb
Is that alright?
Db       Ab                  Bbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded.
        Gb
Is that alright, yeah?
Db            Ab                             Bbm
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it?
         Gb
Is that alright?
Db       Ab                  Bbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded
        Gb
Is that alright?
        Db            Ab
Is that alright with you?

Bridge:
        Bbm Gb Db Ab
Is that alright?
        Bbm Gb Db Ab
Is that alright?
        Bbm               Gb Db Ab
Is that alright with you?
        Bbm
Is that alright?
        Gb
Is that alright?
        Db            Ab
Is that alright with you?

  1. It sounds good when if at the start of each chord you pluck G and A together and then pluck C then E then A

    Super easy to learn and works well with the melody of the song! Only wish there was a variety of chords throughout the song as it gets a bit boring to play. Thank you ukutabs!!!

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.
