Intro - x2 -: A Dbm B


A                       Dbm
Kiss me hard before you go
B               A
Summertime sadness
A                     Dbm
I just wanted you to know
      B               A
That baby you're the best


          A               Dbm
I got my red dress on tonight
                B                     A
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
                 A                     Dbm
Got my hair up real big beauty queen style
            B                  A
High heels off, I'm feeling alive


A              Dbm
Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
            B                A
Telephone wires above all sizzling like your stare
       A             Dbm
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
         B            A
Nothing scares me anymore


A                       Dbm
Kiss me hard before you go
B               A
Summertime sadness
A                     Dbm
I just wanted you to know
      B               A
That baby you're the best


A                         Dbm
I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
B               A
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
A                    Dbm                
Got that summertime, summertime sadness 
B              A
Oh oh oh oh oh oh


             A           Dbm
I'm feelin' electric tonight
                   B              A
Cruising down the coast goin' by 99
            A                   Dbm
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
              B                    A
And now if I go, I'll be happy tonight


A              Dbm
Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
            B                A
Telephone wires above all sizzling like your stare
       A             Dbm
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
         B            A
Nothing scares me anymore


A                       Dbm
Kiss me hard before you go

Summertime sadness

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
B               A
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
A                    Dbm                
Got that summertime, summertime sadness 
B               A
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh


B                        Dbm   
I think I'll miss you forever
           A                        Gbm 
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies
B                    Dbm
Late is better than never
     A                        Gbm         B    A      B
Even if you're gone I'm gonna dri-i-i-i-ive, dri-i-i-ive

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness

  1. -2 Sounds better, but for beginners I recommend +3.

  2. Melanie Piotrowski

    Strum pattern??

  3. +3 is best for higher octive and in my opinion, is much easier to sing

  4. Tyler Russ

    -4 Capo 1st fret or for hire voices 3 fret try any in between

  5. -2 is also sounds better

  6. -4 makes it sound more accurate in my opinion and is easier if you’re a beginner like me. It’s easier to sing along to it, too. Also, I recommend playing G F Am Dm once before singing the “I think I’ll miss you forever” part, it makes a good bridge and gives you time to breathe. Enjoy :)

  7. I reccomend transposing to -4, sounds much better and is easier to play.

  8. +3 is easiest for me!

  9. gangstardelrey

    if you play a GM instead of an A when she says “Sadness” It sounds better too

    also if you want easier chords just play
    A = Dm
    Dbm = F
    B = c
    Gbm = Gm

  10. Ella ministrone

    i recommend the first three chords that this lovely lady Jenn provided, but definitely not the g, the G makes it major when it is in fact in a minor key. So, use Gm. instead, because otherwise it doesn’t sound right. Here is the pattern that you should use:
    Dm
    F
    C
    Gm.

  11. I recommend using the chords:

    Dm
    F
    C
    G

    It sounds better

  12. Transpose to +3
