remember keys
Verse 1:
I knew you once
And it was nice
            A              A7
I knew your brain and your heart
All your insides

Verse 2:
Oh i could tell
Just with a look
              A         A7
What you were thinking
              D         D7
That's all it took

You shared your secrets
And i shared mine
            Em      Em7
Silence was comfy
                  A     A7
Without having to try

Verse 3:
We swapped our smiles
Gifted advice
                A     A7
Yes, i knew you once
And it was nice

D    G   A  A7  D
D    G   A  A7  D

  1. pals… the title is a bit wonky

  2. Faloesh3214

    Looks like she plays the original at +5

  3. perfect

  4. The song is called “I Knew You Once” not “I Know Yo Once”

  5. The song title is I Knew You Once not “I Know Yo Once”

  6. the title of the song is “I Knew You Once”

  7. two Things:
    is the title messed up or is that just me?
    also, in the bridge, after the G, put your pinky on the fifth fret of the A string (last one) while still holding the G, and do the same where it says Em7 but hold an Em :)
    bonus Thing:
    the fingerpicking is CEAE (second third last third) :)
