Verse:
GbmGbm chord           
I thought of angels
AA chord
Choking on their halos
EE chord                       BmBm chord
Get them drunk on rose water
GbmGbm chord 
See how dirty I can get them
AA chord                         EE chord
Pulling out their fragile teeth
                     BmBm chord
And clip their tiny wings

Pre-Chorus:
              DD chord           GbmGbm chord            AA chord     
Anything you say can and will be held against you
    EE chord             BmBm chord
So only say my name
    GbmGbm chord             AA chord          
It will be held against you

So only say my name

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

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

Pre-Chorus:
              DD chord           GbmGbm chord            AA chord

So only say my name

It will be held against you

  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
