Verse:
Am
She always has a smile
     G                    D5  D
From morning to the night
    Am
The perfect poster child
     G                   D5  D
That was once in my life

Pre-Chorus:
  Am
a doll made out of glass
        G                              D5  D
All her friends think that she's great
    Em        D
But I can see through it all
    C    
And she's about to break

Chorus:
  Am               G
Remember last year when you told me
   D                    Em         
To always stay here and never leave me
     Am                 G
The light from your eyes made it feel like
D        Em
We-e-e-e were dancing in the moonlight


  Am               G
Remember last year when you told me
     D                 Em
That these will be lifelong stories
     Am                 G
The light from your eyes made it feel like
D        E
We-e-e-e were dancing in the moonlight


Post-Chorus:
 Am           G        D           Em 
-Ooh-ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh - ooh - ooh-
                       You-ou-ou-ou were dancing in the moonlight
 Am           G        D           Em 
-Ooh-ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh - ooh - ooh-
                       And I-I-I-I was dancing in the moonlight

Verse:
Am
Now she lost her way
    G              D
And she forgets to smile
Am
Never gets a break
     G              D
From this life in denial

Pre-Chorus:
  Am
a doll made out of glass
        G                              D5
All her friends think that she's great
    Em        D
But I can see through it all
    C  
And she's about to break, oh!

Chorus:
  Am               G
Remember last year when you told me
   D                    Em         
To always stay here and never leave me
     Am                 G
The light from your eyes made it feel like
D        Em
We-e-e-e were dancing in the moonlight

  Am               G
Remember last year when you told me
     D                 Em
That these will be lifelong stories
     Am                 G
The light from your eyes made it feel like
D        E
We-e-e-e were dancing in the moonlight

Post-Chorus:
 Am           G        D           Em 
-Ooh-ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh - ooh - ooh-
                       You-ou-ou-ou were dancing in the moonlight
 Am           G        D           Em 
-Ooh-ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh - ooh - ooh-
                       And I-I-I-I was dancing in the moonlight

Bridge:
Em      G           Am    Am    
I, I, I, miss those memories
Em           G                 C  Cm
We used to share just you and me

Chorus:
    Am               G
I remember last year when I told you
        D                    Em
I would always stay here and never leave you
  Am                 G
I told you the light in your eyes made it look like
D       -mute-        Em 
We-e-e-e were dancing in the moonlight


  Am               G
Remember last year when you told me
   D                    Em         
To always stay here and never leave me
     Am                 G
The light from your eyes made it feel like
D        Em
We-e-e-e were dancing in the moonlight

Outro:
 Am           G        D       Em 
-Ooh-ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh-ooh ooh-, oh
     Am                 G                  D
The light from your eyes made it feel like
                        Em

  1. saw that, funny.
    “is that a ghost”

  2. I’ve found that the best way to learn GV’s songs is by watching her play on You Tube. You might have to hit pause and do some experimenting but she usually plays fairly EZ chords and Uke chords aren’t all that hard to finger out. And that’s why we LOVE THE UKE!

  3. Gracie uke

    I love you Grace!

  4. What's up it's Ella!

    :)

  5. What's up it's Ella!

    I know some of this wrong,but I still like playing it!!!!

  6. Ella Schanzel

    This is not the same version, but I still really like it??????

  7. Sophia Guzman

    There is no strumming pattern, it’s fingerpicking. ?

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
