Intro:
Fm
Ohh...

Verse:
      Db                     Fm
Got a boy back home in Michigan
       Eb 
And it tastes like Jack when I'm kissing him
     Db                                      Fm
So I told him that I never really liked his friends
         Eb                          Ab
Now he's gone and he's calling me a bitch again
       Db                           Fm
It's a guy that lives in a garden state
       Eb 
And he told me that we'd make it 'til we graduate
     Db                                      Fm
So I told him the music would be worth the wait
       Eb                              Ab
But he wants me in the kitchen with a dinner plate

Pre-Chorus:

That we're meant to be
          Db                             Fm
But jealousy, jealousy, jealousy, jealousy
         Eb          Ab
Gets the best of me
      Db                          Fm
Look, I don't mean to frustrate, but I

           Db     Fm  Eb
I'm bad at love -ooh-ooh-
                           Db 
But you can't blame me for tryin'
         Fm     Eb
You know I'd be lyin' sayin'
Ab            Db    Fm  Eb
You were the one -ooh-ooh-
                   Db 
That could finally fix me
        Fm    Eb
Lookin' at my history
    Ab      Db 
I'm bad at love

Verse:
      Db
Got a girl with California eyes
Fm     Eb
 And I thought that she could really be the one this time
      Db                                  Fm
But I never got the chance to make her mine
            Eb                        Ab
Because she fell in love with little thin white lines
Db                         Fm
London girl with an attitude
         Eb
We never told no one but we look so cute
Db                              Fm
Both got way better things to do
      Eb                              Ab
But I always think about it when I'm riding through

Pre-chrous:
    Db                                 Fm

          Db                             Fm
But jealousy, jealousy, jealousy, jealousy

  1. TheyCallMeJewels

    for the last three chords i do F A C

  2. it actually is “i always think about her when im riding through”

  3. ukulady2018

    I sing and play this song at the same time and was wondering if there is a good sub for the swear word in the first verse where she says “Now he’s gone and calling me a _____ again”

  4. The first time I heard this song on the radio I loved it, but I though it was ‘Ready to Love’, not ‘Bad at Love’ and I couldn’t find the song anywhere. So glad I found it!!

  5. JustSomeoneWithADream

    No, it’s “riding through”

  6. The lyrics in the second verse are “I always think about her when i’m bad and blue” not “riding through”

  7. How do you find the strumming pattern?

  8. I can’t find the strumming patterns are they written anywhere?

  9. It’s okay, but a lot of these chords don’t fit in with the song.

  10. phanic! at the hometown

    just saying…i’d strum it either dduudu or ddu (i think it sounds better the second way but it’s all preference)

  11. I really liked how it sounded with a capo either on the 1st or 2nd fret

  12. what would be a good strumming pattern for this song

  13. i love halsey so much

  14. Great job!
