Intro -x2-: Em C G

Em           C        G
Walking down 29th and Park
Em        C            G
I saw you in another’s arms
Em       C               G
Only a month we’ve been apart
          Em          C            G
You look happier
Em        C            G
Saw you walk inside a bar
Em            C                 G 
He said something to make you laugh
Em          C                      G
I saw that both your smiles were twice as wide as ours
               Em     C            G
Yeah, you look happier, you do

Em            C              G
Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you
     Em            C              G
But ain’t nobody love you like I do
Em              C                G
Promise that I will not take it personal, baby
Em                C               G
If you’re moving on with someone new

                     Em     C    G
Cause baby you look happier, you do
                    Em         C        G
My friends told me one day I’d feel it too
                    Em       C        G
And until then I'll smile to hide the truth
                  Em      C    G
But I know I was happier with you

Em          C             G
Sat in the corner of the room
Em               C            G
Everything’s reminding me of you
Em         C     G                                Em
Nursing an empty bottle and telling myself you’re happier
C      G
Aren’t you?

Em            C              G
Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you
     Em            C              G 
But ain’t nobody need you like I do
Em                  C              G
I know that there’s others that deserve you
        Em            C                  G
But my darling, I am still in love with you

                     Em     C     G
But I guess you look happier, you do
                       Em     C          G
My friends told me one day I’ll  feel it too
                Em       C         G
I could try to smile to hide the truth
                 Em     C      G
But I know I was happier with you

Interlude -x2-:
Heya heya heya
Em   C    G 

                Em    C     G
Baby, you look happier, you do
                     Em        C       G
I knew one day you’d fall for someone new
                      Em         C       G
But if he breaks your heart like lovers do
                       Em       C       G
Just know that I’ll be waiting here for you

  1. I strum once for each chord cuz nothing else works for me and it still sounds good

  2. For strumming I use DDTD. Am(DDTD) F(DDT) C(DDDTD)

  3. Try
    (A) DU (F) DU (C) DDU
    it sounds pretty close to the original

  4. xmaisiecan'tsingx

    I found that DDU-UDU works best (1x with A and F and 2x with C) x

  5. I was wondering if anyone knew if you had to do finger picking or if you could just strum and if so does anyone know the pattern

  6. Simone de Vries

    I use DDU DDU DDUUDU as a stumming pattern and it really works for me.

  7. 0 with capo on the 2nd free sounds like the song!!!

  8. i think for beginners use DU {Am} , DU {F} , D{C} {hold} at each chord.

  9. For the strumming pattern, I foundthat DDU DDU DDU DDU sounded the best. So you do Am F C C for the whole song except for the outro where the strumming pattern is just D D D D but the same notes. Hope that makes sense lol. ?

  10. At the Verse i Play a simple Finger Picking from C to e to a to e 1 on a 1 on f 2 on c
    And at the Chorus and pre corus a simple DDUUDU

  11. I feel like this song is very easy it has only three chords and honestly I am pretty sure a beginner can do this I know it can be hard to switch cords like from A to C or anything like that but you will get the hang of it my strumming pattern for the whole song down up down up down Up up

  12. PizzaChunkie24

    OK, I love this song, but I think its more difficult level 2 or 3. there are just 3 chords, but they are very often.

  13. Sofi’s Uke

    my strum pattern is DDUD for the first two notes and the last note gets one strum, it sounds similar to the video, lmk if you use this one :)

  14. Maeve Stanley

    Love this song soooooooooo much!!!!!??????❤️❤️❤️❤️!!!!! It is so AMAZING

  15. I just go with the flow and do what come naturally ar feels right at the time!!!

  16. Sampo salmela

    Paska biisi 0/5 en panis

  17. Kawaii~UkulelePlayer

    I love dis song soo much

  18. I use DDUUD, but it’s the same idea

  19. My strumming pattern is DDDUD, it’s really easy and it sounds good ?

    • Ukenewbie

      I’m in between UUD (A) UUD (F) UUDUDUDU (C) as the basic strumming for the song (and then varying it sometimes to go with the flow) or Starting with a Down stroke (and doing everything in the opposite direction). Would be interested in seeing what others think. If this is a good strumming pattern or not. Thanks!
