Verse:
Gbm           
I thought of angels
A
Choking on their halos
E                       Bm
Get them drunk on rose water
Gbm 
See how dirty I can get them
A                         E
Pulling out their fragile teeth
                     Bm
And clip their tiny wings

Pre-Chorus:
              D           Gbm            A     
Anything you say can and will be held against you
    E             Bm
So only say my name
    Gbm             A          
It will be held against you
E             D           Gbm            A  
Anything you say can and will be held against you
E               Bm
So only say my name

Chorus:
             Gbm                 D
If heaven's grief brings hell's rain
           A                         E
Then I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Gbm  
-I know I'm bad news-
D 
For just one yesterday
A                    E
-I saved it all for you-
                       Gbm                         D
I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
            A                         E
Still I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Gbm  
-I know I'm bad news-
D 
For just one yesterday
A                    
-I saved it all for you-
E
For just one yesterday

Verse:
Gbm                              A
Letting people down is my thing baby
                     E
Find yourself a new gig
                       Bm
This town ain't big enough for two of us
Gbm
I don't have the right name
A
O-o-or the right looks
E                      Bm
But I have twice the heart

Pre-Chorus:
              D           Gbm            A     
Anything you say can and will be held against you
    E             Bm
So only say my name
    Gbm             A          
It will be held against you
E             D           Gbm            A  
Anything you say can and will be held against you
E               Bm
So only say my name 

Chorus:
             Gbm                 D
If heaven's grief brings hell's rain
           A                         E
Then I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Gbm  
-I know I'm bad news-
D 
For just one yesterday
A                    E
-I saved it all for you-
                       Gbm                         D
I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
            A                         E
Still I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Gbm  
-I know I'm bad news-
D 
For just one yesterday
A                    
-I saved it all for you-
E
For just one yesterday

Verse:
  Gbm  E         D
If I spilled my guts
     Gbm               E               Bm   D
The world would never look at you the same way
     Gbm     E                  D
I'm here to give you all of my love
    Gbm                        E            D
So I can watch your face as I take  it all away -away, away...-

Chorus:
             Gbm                 D
If heaven's grief brings hell's rain
           A                         E
Then I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Gbm  
-I know I'm bad news-
D 
For just one yesterday
A                    E

                       Gbm                         D
I want to teach you a lesson in the worst kind of way
            A                         E
Still I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Gbm  
-I know I'm bad news-
D 
For just one yesterday
A

For just one yesterday

  1. astronomical

    +3 is the easiest for me, although -2 is also easy and sounds great with a capo on the second fret!

  2. klance.spidey_pool

    +3 is much easier, so i would try it ;)

  3. I just started playing it with Em at first because I couldn’t play the E, but now that I can play E I actually think Em sounds better.

  4. I just randomly stumbled upon this, and I this is PERFECT! I LOVE this song so much and the NAILED IT!! (Also an easier way to make an E chord is to put the first finger on A string on the second fret and bar the other strings on the fourth fret.)

  5. There is an easier way to play and e chord. I have no idea why this site makes it so hard. Put one finger on the a string on the second fret and the other three on the other three strings on he fourth fret. most definitely easier and sounds the same

  6. theissiestthing

    I would go -2 if you’re looking for an easier version, but thank you :) xoxo

  7. scottish_potato

    +3 is pretty easy

  8. pete's bass

    i believe the words are “reign” not “rain” but otherwise its perfect!

  9. Perfect! :D
