Verse:
F
Give me a second I, I need to get my story straight
   Dm
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the empire state
   Gm
my lover she's waiting for me just across the bar
              Bb                       C
My seats been taken by some sunglasses asking 'bout a scar

F
and I know I gave it to you months ago
Dm                                 Gm
I know you're trying to forget but between the drinks and subtle things
                              Bb                             C
the holes in my apologies you know I'm trying hard to take it back

Pre-Chorus:
C             Gm      Am                  Dm        C       Bb
so if by the time the bar closes and you feel like falling down
Bb             C
I'll carry you home 

Chorus:
F          F    Dm 
Tonight We are  young So let's set the world on
Bb               Bb    Bb           C
fire We can burn brigh-ter than the sun
F          F    Dm 
Tonight We are  young So let's set the world on
Bb               Bb    Bb           F     C
fire We can burn brigh-ter than the sun

Verse:
      F
Now I know that I'm not all that you got
Dm
I guess that I I just thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart
Gm                                         Bb
But our friends in back So let's raise the tab
                         C
Cause I found someone to carry me home 

Chorus:
F          F    Dm 
Tonight We are  young So let's set the world on
Bb               Bb    Bb           C
fire We can burn brigh-ter than the sun
F          F    Dm 
Tonight We are  young So let's set the world on
Bb               Bb    Bb           F     C
fire We can burn brigh-ter than the sun

Bridge:
F                  Dm F                      C
Carry me home tonight Just carry me home tonight
F               Dm    F                    C
Carry me home tonight Just carry me home tonight
F                         Dm                           F
The moon is on my side       I have no reason to run
                          C
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
F                           Dm                             F
The angels never arrived       but I can hear the choir
                         C
so will someone come and carry me home 

Chorus:
F          F    Dm 
Tonight We are  young So let's set the world on
Bb               Bb    Bb           C
fire We can burn brigh-ter than the sun
F          F    Dm 
Tonight We are  young So let's set the world on
Bb               Bb    Bb           F     C
fire We can burn brigh-ter than the sun

Outro:
             Gm       Am
So if by the time the bar closes
         Dm       C       Bb
and you feel like falling down
Bb             C       F
I'll carry you home, tonight

  1. Waterlogged

    I use ddD du udu ddu for the chorus and a mix of single strums and dduudu for the verses but that’s just me

  2. singingpanda

    lol I just realized I said that like months ago

  3. singingpanda

    +1 is in the key of Little Mix’s cover

  4. wait instead of now it’s but lol whoops

  5. The lyrics are: “Now our friends are back; so let’s raise a glass” :)

  6. singingpanda

    To play in the style of little mix do +1 and do the chorus before the first verse :)

  7. notquitebeginner

    FEMALE VOCALISTS: ITS BETTER FOR US TO CHANE IT UP TO +2 AND IF YOURE A BEGINNER YOU CAN CHANGE THE Bm TO A D IF YOU NEED TO.

  8. someone know the strumming pattern for this one??

  9. One of my favorite songs to play on ukulele it sounds so pretty!

  10. +2 is the easiest one. your welcome:)

  11. how the heck am i supposed to play a song this amazing and not lose my cool like honestly i love this song so much

  12. This is amazing! Super easy to learn too. Anyone frightened by the chords -5 is simpler for begginers. Also a good strumming pattern starting at the chorus is
    d-d u-u d-u

  13. Smashdiggity;)

    For all female *ALTO* vocalists, if you’re having trouble in the part that starts out “and so if by the time the bar closes…” what I do, is I just sing that part higher. With my voice, I can sing all the other parts perfectly fine without altering anything, but then again not everyone has a deep voice like I do. Just wanted to give a helpful tip if you’re struggling a lot with +2 :)

  14. On ”Carry me home tonight, carry me home tonight” it sounds better if you replace Dm with Bm… I think xD

  15. Love this song thank you so much

  16. the crazy uke chick

    if you struggle with Bb replace it with Bb6.

  17. TimidHeartDjoo2235

    Love it as is…fun and easy to play an sing along! :)

  18. JustAnothercliquemember

    -5 is a lot easier if you need to learn it quickly like me

  19. Bb instead of Dm sounds better in the bridge.

  20. dmlanuti

    love it <3
