Verse:
                 G
I took a pill in Ibiza
        D
To show Avicii I was cool
           Em
And when I finally got sober felt 10 years older
    G
But xxxx it, it was something to do

                  G
I'm living out in LA
          D
I drive a sports car just to prove
      Em                      G
I'm a real big baller cause I made a million dollars
      D                     G
And I spend it on girls and shoes

Chorus:
                       G
But you don't wanna be high like me
                     D
Never really knowing why like me
                     Em                                      G
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
                         G
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
                     D
Never knowing who to trust like this
                   Em
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
G
Stuck up on that stage singing
G     D            Em        G
All I know are sad songs sad songs
        G     D            Em        G
Darling all I know are sad songs sad songs

Verse:
            G         D
I'm just a singer who already blew his shot
      Em
I get along with old timers
         G                      D               G
Cause my name's a reminder of a pop song people forgot
                   G
And I can't keep a girl no
         D
Cause as soon as the sun comes up
  Em                   G
I cut em all loose and work's my excuse
        D                     G
But the truth is I can't open up

Chorus:

But you don't wanna be high like me
                     D
Never really knowing why like me
                     Em                                      G
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
                         G
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
                     D
Never knowing who to trust like this
                   Em
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
G
Stuck up on that stage singing
G     D            Em        G
All I know are sad songs sad songs
        G     D            Em        G
Darling all I know are sad songs sad songs

Verse:
                     G
I took a plane to my hometown
             D
I brought my pride and my guitar
       Em
All my friends are all gone but there's manicured lawns
        G
And the people still think I'm a star
                G
I walked around downtown
           D
I met some fans on Lafayette
          Em
They said tell us how to make it cause we're getting real impatient
     G
So I looked em in the eye and said

Chorus:
                       G
You don't wanna be high like me
                     D
Never really knowing why like me
                     Em                                      G
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
                         G
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
                     D
Never knowing who to trust like this
                   Em
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
G
Stuck up on that stage singing
G     D            Em        G
All I know are sad songs sad songs
        G     D            Em        G
Darling all I know are sad songs sad songs

    Dx (change chord) duudxx

  2. SamaLlamaDingDong

    I think the strumming pattern dx(hold for one chord) duuddxx( fast for one chord) sounds nice… sorry if I wrote that confusingly…

  3. morgan miller

    +5 is the easiest, but sounds to high.

  4. +5 is easiest

  5. nyooooooooooooooooooooom

    +3 seems to match the song the best

  6. folieatristan

    i feel like with the right strum pattern this could be super cool!
