Intro: Gbm D D A - x2 -

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

Chorus:
        Gbm    D
Is that alright?
A       E                  Gbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded.
        D
Is that alright, yeah?
A            E                             Gbm
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it?
         D
Is that alright?
A       E                  Gbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded
        D
Is that alright?
        A            E
Is that alright with you?

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

Chorus:
        Gbm    D
Is that alright?
A       E                  Gbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded.
        D
Is that alright, yeah?
A            E                             Gbm
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it?
         D
Is that alright?
A       E                  Gbm
Give my gun away when it's loaded
        D
Is that alright?
        A            E
Is that alright with you?

Bridge:
        Gbm D A E
Is that alright?
        Gbm D A E
Is that alright?
        Gbm               D A E
Is that alright with you?
        Gbm
Is that alright?
        D
Is that alright?
        A            E
Is that alright with you?

Gbm D A E

  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

  2. hey! could you please post the strumming pattern for this song?!

    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.
