Intro -x2-: Bbm Gb Db

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

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm            Gb              Db
Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you
     Bbm            Gb              Db
But ain’t nobody love you like I do
Bbm              Gb                Db
Promise that I will not take it personal, baby
Bbm                Gb               Db
If you’re moving on with someone new

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

Verse:
Bbm          Gb             Db
Sat in the corner of the room
Bbm               Gb            Db
Everything’s reminding me of you
Bbm         Gb     Db                                Bbm
Nursing an empty bottle and telling myself you’re happier
Gb      Db
Aren’t you?

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm            Gb              Db
Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you
     Bbm            Gb              Db 
But ain’t nobody need you like I do
Bbm                  Gb              Db
I know that there’s others that deserve you
        Bbm            Gb                  Db
But my darling, I am still in love with you

Chorus:
                     Bbm     Gb     Db
But I guess you look happier, you do
                       Bbm     Gb          Db
My friends told me one day I’ll  feel it too
                Bbm       Gb         Db
I could try to smile to hide the truth
                 Bbm     Gb      Db
But I know I was happier with you

Interlude -x2-:
Heya heya heya
Bbm   Gb    Db 

Outro:
                Bbm    Gb     Db
Baby, you look happier, you do
                     Bbm        Gb       Db
I knew one day you’d fall for someone new
                      Bbm         Gb       Db
But if he breaks your heart like lovers do
                       Bbm       Gb       Db
Just know that I’ll be waiting here for you

    I like it as is at first, but I think +2 is really pretty!

  2. anonomysdancerk

    I really love this song. I think that it is easy enough for beginners (like me) but complex sounding enough for more advanced players. :)

  3. I love Ed. Sadly, most of his songs are too hard for me….BUT NOT THIS ONE!!!!!!!!! :)

  4. pb12345679

    I use DDUUDU and it really works! also for affect sometimes its cool to just do one strum for each chord. ;)

  5. Banana lover

    I love Ed Sheerans songs, especially on a he ukulele. The strumming pattern I use is, DDU-DDU-DDU-UDU

  6. the second verse is great if you only play one strum on each chord until ” you’re happier aren’t you”

  7. Loranlovesukulele

    That ‘down down up’ helps! Its a really nice song and i love ed sheeran and the ukulele AND your tips!?

  8. I use DDUD

  9. I am learning how to play this song for an open mic. I love it so much. I am also using as a pattern dudu

  10. i use dduudu

  11. hi fellow phamily member

  12. I use DUDDUD

  14. brooklyn_louis

    -3

  15. I LOVE THIS SONG! XD

  16. try down up down up

  17. The pattern “D-D-U-U-D-U” works best for me.

  18. i’m using d-d,u-d-u but not sure if it sounds right. it fits the rhythm though.

    What Strumming pattern would be the best??

  20. Hi, I’d just like to say that I prefer the sound of the -5 chords versus the 0 ones, and they are super easy too. That’s just my opinion, though. :)
