Intro:
    C D Em G
    Am Am Em Em

                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
           Am
 That went off too soon
                       Em
 And I miss you in the June gloom too
                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
                  Am
 I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you never know
                        Em                                               C
 May the Bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July


C                            D
 I’ll be as honest as you’ll let me
             Em                 G
 I miss your early morning company, if you get me
Am
 You are my favorite "what if"
            Em
 You are my best "I’ll never know", and


C            D
 I’m staring to forget
 Em               G             Am
 Just what summer ever meant to you
                          Em
 What did it ever mean to you?


C          D
 I’m sorry I didn’t mean any of it
Em              G
 I just got too lonely, lonely, oh-oh
Am
 In between being young and being right
          Em
 You were my Versailles at night


                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
           Am
 That went off too soon
                       Em
 And I miss you in the June gloom too
                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
                  Am
 I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you never know
                        Em                                               C
 May the Bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July

 
C                           D
 My nine to five is cutting open old scars
  Em                      G
 Again and again till I’m stuck in your head
Am                                 
 Had my doubts, but I let them out, you're the drought
     Em
 And I’m the holy water you have been without
 

C           D
 And all my thoughts of you
 Em                 G
 They could heat or cool the room
       Am
 And no, don’t tell me you cried 
        Em
 Honey, you don’t have to lie


C          D
 I’m sorry I didn’t mean any of it
Em              G
 I just got too lonely, lonely, oh-oh
Am
 In between being young and being right
          Em
 You were my Versailles at night


                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
           Am
 That went off too soon
                       Em
 And I miss you in the June gloom too
                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
                  Am
 I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you never know
                        Em                                               C
 May the Bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July


C           D                  Em       G
 I wish I’d known how much you loved me
Am                        Em
 I wish I cared enough to know
C          D             Em
 I’m sorry every song’s about you
     G                Am                            Em
 The torture of small talk with someone you used to love


                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
           Am
 That went off too soon
                       Em
 And I miss you in the June gloom too
                        C
 It was the fourth of July
                D                    Em         G
 You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
                  Am
 I said I’d never miss you, but I guess you never know
                        Em                                               C
 May the Bridges I have burned light my way back home on the fourth of July

  1. What’s the strumming pattern???

  2. PatrickStumpIsMyFather

    Fireworks are dangerous children so just remember,
    stay in drugs don’t do school

  3. I like +5, pretty easy chords and I think it sounds better with my voice

  4. What’s the strumming pattern?

  5. -2 sounds so much better and is closer to the original

  6. I agree, the c sounds funny

  7. Sociopathsunday

    the C on July feels kinda… wrong. I dunno, it might just be me.
