Ha, you're blinded by her jewelry
                   Cm
When you turn your back
                Ab
She pulls out a flask
       Bb                   Eb
And forgets his infidelity

Go back to being plastic

  1. melaniieeeee

    I think that Am, C, F, G with a DDU-UDU strumming pattern sounds similar yo the song and is super easy as well :)

  2. High Warlock Of Brookyln Magnus Bane

    In -3 Change the last G to a C

  3. -3

  4. Jayden Granger

    I used +2 and single strumed down then patted my ukulele once. +2 seemed to be more in my vocal range. It sounded more indie but I was cool with that. On the chorus I did fast down strums

  5. LIVEfromtheTARDIS

    its not perfect but try Am C F Dm

  6. -3 and end the song on a c not a g

  7. CharSepticEye

    In my opinion, the song doesn’t sound quite like Melanie’s. Her version gives off a creepier vibe. It may not sound right, but if you change the chords to Em C Am B or Em C G B, it might sound kinda better. This is completely optional and only works if you change the notes you sing a bit.

  8. Some Random Emo

    Instead of using Ab = G# I use Gm, it just sounds better to me^^

  9. i don’t know why but Ab sounds a little bit weird

  10. -3 is the easiest

  11. I find that -3 is easy and best with my vocal range aswell.

  12. I was playing at -1 it’s soo much easier there

  13. IvannaSheeran

    How is the pattern??? i need it :)

  14. Humperdink

    For -3 transpose, switch the Am and C chord with capo on third fret and I also finger pick. Pick the g and a string then the c string for chords Am and F, then for G and C, pick c and a then e.

  15. I just used Am,C, F, G. It’s much easier and sounds great

  16. I found -1 to be easy for me

  17. I really like the way it sounds at +2

  18. I use Am, C, F, and G in a pattern with a capo on the third fret.
