Intro: C

Verse:
    C  C   Am          Am  F      C
You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
C  C   Am             Am        F      C
Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
         C  C   Am     Am       F  C
But you saw no fault no crack in my heart
C   C   Am         Am  F          C        
And you kneel beside my hope torn apart

Pre-Chorus:
       E7              Am        E7           Am
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from you
          C       G   C
And we’ll live a long life

Chorus:
            F          C             G             C
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
      F       C              G  
Cause oh that gave me such a fright
    Am     G       F          C
But I will hold as long as you like
     F          G          Am      F     C    Am    G
Just promise me we’ll be alright

Verse:
   C  C    Am
So lead me back
Am    F              C
Turn south from that place
    C    C   Am      Am  F      C
And close my eyes from my recent disgrace
          C   C   Am
Cause you know my call
Am     F       C
We’ll share my all
C       C    Am               F        C
Now children come and they will hear me roar
       
Chorus:
            F          C             G             C
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
      F       C              G  
Cause oh that gave me such a fright
    Am     G       F          C
But I will hold as long as you like
     F          G          Am      F     C    Am    G
Just promise me we’ll be alright

Bridge: 
    Am            F                    C
But hold me still bury my heart on the coals
    Am            F                     C
And hold me still bury my heart next to yours

Chorus:
            F          C             G             C
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
      F       C              G  
Cause oh that gave me such a fright
    Am     G       F          C
But I will hold as long as you like
     F          G          C
Just promise me we’ll be alright

Outro:
       E7              Am        E7           Am
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from you
          C       G   C
And we’ll live a long life

  1. If your voice is high as mine is, you might find it easier to play it 5 half steps down.

  2. Josephine

    I think the first C in the pre-chorus sounds better as an F :)

  3. I pick the strings like this: G & A strings together then E string then C string. Chords like they have here and it gives it a great feel.

  4. so good omg <3

  5. Is there a way to get the authentic finger picking? I have ukuelel banjo and I want to know the best picking pattern, any suggestions?

  6. I absolutley love this song<3 its so sad but perfect and easy to play on the ukulele!
