Verse 1:
               F
Hey homecoming queen
           C
Why do you lie
               Am
When somebody's mean?
             G
Where do you hide?
          F
Do people assume
              C
You're always alright?
                Am
Been'so good at smiling
              G
Most of your life
 
Pre-Chorus:
     F                C
Look damn good in the dress
                    Am
Zipping up the mess
                  G
Dancing with your best foot forward
F
Does it get hard
C
To have to play the part?
Am              G
Nobody's feeling sorry for ya
 
Chorus:
F              C                          Am
But what if I told you the world wouldn't end
               G                         F
If you started showing what's under your skin
            C                      Am
What if you let 'em all in on the lie?
             G                   F  C  Am  G
Even the homecoming queen cries

Hey homecoming queen
                C
How's things at home?
                 Am
Still walking on eggshells
                   G
When that curtains closed
               F
Did your daddy teach you
           G
How to act tough?
                  Am
Or more like your momma?
                   G
Sweep it under the rug
 
Pre-Chorus:
     F                C
Look damn good in the dress

Zipping up the mess
                  G
Dancing with your best foot forward

Did you want the crown
C
Or does it weigh you down
Am              G
Nobody's feeling sorry for ya
 
Chorus:
F              C                          Am

If you started showing what's under your skin?
            C                      Am
What if you let 'em all in on the lie?
             G                   F
Even the homecoming queen cries
                C                         Am
Yeah, what if I told you the sky wouldn't fall?
                 G                                  F
If you lost your composure, said to hell with it all
               C                     Am
Not everything pretty sparkles and shines
                G                   F
And even the homecoming queen cries
   C     Am
Oh yeah
