A             
It's been a long time since it came around
Bm
Its been along time but I'm back in town
D                                     A
and this time I'm not leaving without you


A
You taste like whiskey when you kiss me oooh
Bm
Id give anything again to be your baby doll
D                                       A
Yeah this time I'm not leaving without you


       D                       
I said sit back down where you belong
        A                         G
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
 D  
Sit back down on the couch where we
      E
Made love for the first time and you said to me

         D                               A
Theres something, something about this place
 D                                    A               G
Something about lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
 D                           A              G
Something something about my cool Nebraska guy
      E                              A
Yeah something about, baby you and I


 A                 
It's been two years since I let you go,
   Bm                          
I couldve listened to a joke or rock n roll
    D                                            A
And muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart


    A
On my birthday you sang me a heart of gold
     Bm
With a guitar hummin and no clothes.
     D                                 A
Yeah this time I'm not leaving without you


D
Sit back down where you belong
        A                         G
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
D
Sit back down on the couch where we
     E
Made love for the first time and you said to me,


        D                               A
Theres something, something about this place
 D                                    A                G
Something about lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
D                             A             G
Something something about my cool Nebraska guy
       E                      A

Come on! - put your drinks up -
A   G    D    A x2
 

-same chord progressions as before-

We got a whole lot of money but we still pay rent
'Cause you can't buy a house in heaven
There's only three men that I'ma serve my whole life
It's my daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ

Something, something about the chase, six whole years
I'm a New York woman, born to run you down
So have my lipstick all over your face
Something, something about just knowing when it's right

So put your drinks up for Nebraska
For Nebraska, Nebraska, I love you

You and I, you, you and I
Baby, I'd rather die without you and I
You and I, you, you and I
Nebraska I'd rather die without you and I

Outro:
A
Been along time since I came around
Bm
Its been along time but I'm back in town
D                                       A
And this time Im not leaving without you

    Strumming pattern? I am a noob at figuring the strumming patterns

  2. It sounds very incorrect

  3. veera vain

    -2 is easieeeer

  4. its confusing please add the chords on the 3rd verse of the song

  5. the_redQUEEN

    I play with an E7 instead of an E and for the ‘My Daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ’ bit I hold the E7 :)
    I’m struggling with the ‘Nebraska Nebraska I love you’ though :/
    Besides that, great chords!

  6. I think you missed an entire verse….

    • There were even more verses missing! Thank you for noticing and reporting, I’ve added them now (same chord pattern as the previous verses).
