Intro -x2-: Cm  Eb

Verse:
   Cm                                                   Eb    
Written in these walls are the stories that I can't explain
   Cm                                                     Eb
I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days
    Cm                               Ab                              Eb
She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
    Cm                                 Ab                           Eb
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone

Pre-Chorus:
            Ab     Bb     Cm
And I'll be gone gone tonight
                      Ab        Bb    Cm
The ground beneath my feet is open wide
                     Ab      Bb       Cm
The way that I been holdin' on too tight
                   Bb  
With nothing in between

Chorus:
     Eb 
The story of my life I take her home
    Ab                                   Cm
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
    Ab      Eb
Is frooooozen -the story of, the story of-
     Eb
The story of my life I give her hope
    Ab                                Cm          Ab
I spend her love until she's broke inside
                Eb
The story of my life -the story of, the story of-

Verse:
   Cm                                                Eb
Written on these walls are the colors that I can't change
 Cm                                                 Eb   
Leave my heart open but it stays right here in its cage
  Cm
I know that in the morning
      Ab                             Eb
I'll see us in the light upon your ear
   Cm                     Ab                 Eb
Although I am broken, my heart is untamed still

Pre-Chorus:
            Ab     Bb     Cm
And I'll be gone gone tonight
                     Ab        Bb      Cm
The fire beneath my feet is burning bright
                     Ab      Bb       Cm
The way that I been holdin' on too tight
                   Bb  
With nothing in between

Chorus:
     Eb 
The story of my life I take her home
    Ab                                   Cm
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
    Ab      Eb
Is frooooozen -the story of, the story of-
     Eb
The story of my life I give her hope
    Ab                                Cm          Ab
I spend her love until she's broke inside
                Eb
The story of my life -the story of, the story of-

Bridge:
             Fm                            Bb
And I been waiting for this time to come around
           Fm                                    Bb
But baby running after you is like chasing the clouds

Chorus: 
    Eb 
The story of my life I take her home
    Ab                                   Cm
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
   -Ab-     -Eb-       Eb
Is frooooozen


     Eb
The story of my life I give her hope -I give her hope-
    Ab                                Cm          Ab
I spend her love until she's broke inside 
                Eb
The story of my life -the story of, the story of-
                Eb         Ab
The story of my liiiiiiiiife
                Cm        Ab
The story of my liiiiiiiiife -the story of, the story of-
             Eb
The story of my life

Is it just me or is Ab the worst chord in ukulele history? Not because it’s hard to play but because, in every single song I’ve played it in, it doesn’t sound like it should be there.

Why does it say ear? Isn’t it supposed to be see us in a light upon a hill??

@Hinetai There are alternates for Ab, but they don’t sound as perfect as the original in this song; but if you want an easier version, you can just search it up here (On the forum or ask Jonas), or find it on Google!

i use ddu-u on -3. the strumming pattern doesn’t sound the best but it’s easy and sounds okay, if you find a better one let me know, i’d love to know it :)
