Intro: D A D A

D    Gbm  Bm         G     D   A
Wise men say, only fools rush in 
    G  A    Bm    G          D    A   D
But I can't help falling in love with you
D     Gbm Bm            G  D  A
Shall I stay, would it be a sin 
   G  A    Bm    G          D    A    D
If I can't help falling in love with you

Gbm            Db7    Gbm            Db7
Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Gbm             Db7   Gbm         B7            Em   A
Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be

D    Gbm  Bm            G     D   A  
Take my hand, take my whole life too
    G  A    Bm    G          D    A    D      
For I can't help falling in love with you


D    Gbm  Bm            G     D   A  
Take my hand, take my whole life too
    G  A    Bm    G          D    A    D      
For I can't help falling in love with you
    G  A    Bm    G          D    A    D      
For I can't help falling in love with you

  1. DDU UDU

  2. what’s the strumming pattern?

  3. ameliaasder

    anyone know the strumming pattern? thanks!

  4. LittleRedCera

    Thank you! So much easier! and perfect for this song!

    • I usually play down stoke for the first part and then the shall I stay part and most of the song I play dd-du and then on the like a river flows part I play down strokes

  5. Mareekeeteo

    that was awesome thx i loved it

  6. Mareekeeteo

    i tried it it was great thxs

  7. I’m confused??? People are saying it’s hard to play a B7 but all you have to do is bar the second fret and place a finger on the C string second fret???

    It doesn’t change the sound but it’s a lot easier

    • ProbablyPanickingAtADiscoSomewhere

      Yeah, same XD I thought barring the fret and putting your second finger in place was what everyone did? But I guess not? Question mark?

  8. -2 is really easy and if u have trouble with b7, my trick is to put ur first finger on all strings in the second fret and ur second finger on the third sting on the third fret like normal. I love this trick and use it for many other chords.

  9. I love you
    I love you
    I love –

    I can dig Elvis

    See you then

  10. LuciaNadine young lady, there is proper eddicit and manners out there. Perhaps you should learn them because NOBODY SHALL EVER SPEAK THOSE FOUR WORDS. EVER

    • Supernatural1967

      I can dig Elvis. Cas dies on a Thursday. I could go for a milkshake. I love -. I owe you a vacation. Love Me Tender. Come on and shake it up baby now.

  11. Sammydcraig

    Other chords for Bm b7 and db7?

    • Simon Martinez-Herrera

      For Bm, just play D again. It works well. I just skipped B7 when it was supposed to be played, and it sounded fine. And for Db7, I played E7.

  12. LuciaNadine

    I can dig elvis

  13. i C G C C for intro try it guys!

  14. Oh man!! B7 is tough!

    • Kawaii20146

      It’s okay. Just put your second third and fourth finger one the second fret where they belong then use your fourth finger and out it on the third fret. I had difficulty as well but as people always say practice makes perfect! ?

    • ProbablyPanickingAtADiscoSomewhere

      Honestly, it’s not that difficult once you get the hang of it! Just simply bar the second fret with your first finger, then place your second finger on the third fret of the C string :) hope this helped! Just practice it a bit then you’ll get it!

  15. I love love this song! I also did C and Em at the beginning, instead of D and Gbm. That’s how i was taught so its natural to

  16. I can’t play B7 uuugh

  17. I played this for my grandma who has a picture with him and she started crying

  18. Transpose down 2 half-steps to get the twenty one pilots version :)

    Also much easier

  19. This song is great to play! Sounds really nice if sung like the coca cola christmas adver ;)
