Intro:
  Em                      G         D               C
 Long ago, just like the hearse you died to get in again,
    Em     D
 We are so far from you.

Verse:
  Em                     G          D            C
 Burning on, just like a match you strike to incinerate
      Em             D
 the lives, of every one you knew.
               Bm       C                Em        D    
 And whats the worst to take, from every heart you break.
         Bm        C               Em    D        G
 like a blade you stain, I've been holding on tonight.

Chorus:
  G                           D                          Em      
 Whats the worst thing I can say? Things are better if I stay.
                 Eb                      G
 So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight!

Verse:
 Em                      G            D                   C
 Came a time, where every star fall brought you to tears again.  
    Em           D  
 we are the very hurt you sold.
                Bm      C                Em       D
 And whats the worst to take, from every heart you break.
         Bm       C                Em    D       G
 like a blade you stain, I've been holding on tonight.

Chorus:
  G                           D                          Em 
 Whats the worst thing I can say? Things are better if I stay. 
                 Eb                       G
 So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight!
  G                      D                         Em 
 And if I carry on this way, thing are better if I stay.
                 Eb                      G
 So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight!


 Em  C   G   D   
 Can you hear me?
 Em  C   G   D
 Are you near me?
 Em      C          G        D      
 Can we pretend to leave and then, 
       Em    C         G        D
 We'll meet again when both our cars collide!

Chorus:
  G                           D                          Em 
 Whats the worst thing I can say? Things are better if I stay. 
                 Eb                      G
 So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight!
  G                         D                         Em 
 Well if you carry on this way, thing are better if I stay.
                 Eb                      G
 So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight!

Y’all

JUST PLAY “A” INSTEAD “C”

IT’S NOT Cm OR C dim

OKAY

Pretty.Emo.

To be honest, after trying the whole song over many times, Cm has worked best. Gives it more of that tone that matches how you sing it.

lemon

the full chorus progression is E B Cdim Dbm A Am. it’s actually a pretty common progression even though no chord sheets i’ve found so far actually have the correct chords

rainn

hey guys! so i play this song a little differently and found a good way that sounds right!
if you go to -2 and put your capo on the first fret, that’s essentially how i play it. however, i usually switch out the bb for a gb – it just sounds better to me. i also switch out the gbm to gb, but that’s just my personal preference, gbm works well too.
FOR THE CHORUS: i put in some extra chords and it came out REALLY well. here’s how i play it:
(bm) so long
(gb) and goodnight
(g) so long
(a) and goodnight
(d)
i hope this helps!!! :)

rainn

I’M SO SORRY I MEANT THE SECOND FRET AT THE BEGINNING I’M SOrry i can’t think lol

rainn

Also! For -4, here’s the chord progression for the chorus:
(am) so long
(e) and goodnight
(f) so long
(g) and goodnight
(c)

gee.party.poison

-2 I think sounds really nice. I also put a capo on the second fret, to keep it in the same key, but it just fits my voice better on -2 and it is an easier version

caitions

Original tuning sounds better if you replace the C in the chorus with Am! Personally I play 1003 to keep the c but make it sound sadder lol. I also add an Ab for flavor.

Here’s what it would look like:

E                            B               Ab          Dbm
What's the worst thing I can say? Things are better if I stay
                Am+C (1003)            E 
So long and goodnight, so long and goodnight

imo, a lot of discussions about whether the C during the chorus is really a C. To me, it’s important to play the C, but before you play the E, slip a Cm in to smoothen things.

Crispy Baguette

The C can be changed to a Cm to match the minor progression, and a B can be added before the E on “so long, not”.

Dbm. Cm. B. E
So long and goodnight, so long not goodnight

Crispy Baguette

Dbm———————Cm———B————————E
So long and goodnight, so long not goodnight.

-4 if you’re looking for an easier version. That’s what works best for me.

Xx_Pillow_xX

In my opinion, -4 sounds the best and is the easiest to play

Ukeplayer8999

It sounds great with -4. is there an eaiser chord to replace abm with?

Brendon Urie's fivehead

F works for me.

G also works.

xnamelessclique

-4 is the easiest and sounds cute
btw for the strumming pattern i use ddu except intro and bridge but idk

RandomHuman

For me I find -4 the easiest. And instead of playing Ab I play G.
