Verse:
A
Waking up to kiss you and nobody’s there
Gbm
The smell of your perfume still stuck in the air
D
It’s hard
A
Yesterday I thought I saw your shadow running round
     Gbm
It’s funny how things never change in this old town
   Dmaj7 D       E
So far from the stars

Pre-Chorus:
Bm7                      E
  And I want to tell you everything
                  A              E           Gbm
The words I never got to say the first time around
Bm7              E
  And I remember everything
                      A                   E        Gbm
From when we were the children playing in this fairground
                          D
Wish I was there with you now

Chorus:
       Gbm
If the whole world was watching I’d still dance with you
      Dmaj7
Drive highways and byways to be there with you
A
Over and over the only truth
Gbm   E           A       D
Everything comes back to you
Gbm  E A
Mmm-mm-mm

Verse:
  A
I saw that you moved on with someone new
       Gbm
In the pub that we met he’s got his arms around you
     Dmaj7   D
It’s so hard
   E
So hard

Pre-Chorus:
Bm7                      E
  And I want to tell you everything
                  A              E           Gbm
The words I never got to say the first time around
Bm7              E
  And I remember everything
                      A                   E        Gbm
From when we were the children playing in this fairground
                          D
Wish I was there with you now

Chorus:
       Gbm
If the whole world was watching I’d still dance with you
      Dmaj7
Drive highways and byways to be there with you
A
Over and over the only truth
Gbm   E           A       D
Everything comes back to you
    A
You still make me nervous when you walk in the room
     Gbm
Them butterflies they come alive when I’m next to you
Dmaj7
Over and over the only truth
Gbm   E           A       D
Everything comes back to you
Gbm  E A
Mmm-mm-mm

Bridge:
Gbm                     E   
  And I know that it’s wrong
                  A
That I can’t move on
                            D
But there’s something about you

Chorus:
       Gbm
If the whole world was watching I’d still dance with you
      Dmaj7
Drive highways and byways to be there with you
A
Over and over the only truth
Gbm    E           A       D
Everything comes back to you
    A
You still make me nervous when you walk in the room
     Gbm 
Them butterflies they come alive when I’m next to you
Dmaj7
Over and over the only truth
Gbm   E           A       D
Everything comes back to you
Gbm  E A
Mmm-mm-mm
Gbm   E           A       D
Everything comes back to you
Gbm  E A
Mmm-mm-mm

  1. Love. This. Song.

  2. genre:Cute

    same

  3. This is me and my boyfriends song, I sang it for him when I surprised him at his house. We’re long distance so I don’t get to see him to much and he cried his eyes out☺️

  4. Luv it

  5. What is the strumming pattern

  6. What is the strumming pattern?

    • sorry your not allowed to ask that but you can always look it up on YouTube and go to the ukulele teacher he is really great at teaching the songs you would like to know

  7. Instead of using E use E6 instead for better sound!! Strumming pattern could be DDUUDU kinda fast following the tempo.

  8. Is there an easyer wasy to play this song?

    • BeccaKiblin

      Transpose down 2

    • JubeJube

      Yes there is, if you go up to right above the chords you will see 0 and then down and up correct? If u do then click on the -2 and it gives u way easier chords. Hope this helps!!

  9. Caitlin707

    Love it

  10. +3 SOUNDS AMAZING! and you can just play the F chord instead of Fmaj7 , much easier!

  11. You can play E like this
    A: 2
    E: 4
    G: 4
    C: 4
    With your thumb across e, g and c

  12. livplaysuke

    Does anyone know a different chord i can use instead of E?

    • ollierocks1324

      you can hold E like this, which is a lot easier:
      |-|1|-|-|
      |-|-|-|4|
      |-|-|-|3|
      |-|-|-|2|
      if that is difficult too, then you can click the -2 button on the transpose and put a capo on the second fret.

    • MeganTurtle

      E7 sounds good and it’s easier

    • Hi there,
      I now use E in this song as I have practiced moving from different chords to it, however I started with E7. I’m pretty sure they sounded the same (to me it does anyway!) If you don’t know it, E7 is:

      A 2
      E 0
      C 2
      G 1

      I hope this helps.

      -Bex.

    • JubeJube

      You can use Em, I use that and it works just fine!!!

    • Try using an E7 chord, but instead of pressing down on the C string, put ur finger down on it lightly. This is the exact E chord without any changes to the song

  13. ollierocks1324

    that works as lyrics. Cool. lol

  14. ollierocks1324

    Heard it on the radio and I thought it was a great song. thought I’d play it on the Uke and now it’s my favorite song! beautiful tab. Thanks!

  15. LOVE THIS THANK YOU!!!!

  16. Bookworm0404

    Yay so glad you did this song I love it more than words can describe!!!

  17. courtneynel21

    yaaas

  18. I recommend -2 with a capo, it’s the easiest
