G              Em         C         G
Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two
       C              G
Where summers lasted longer than
     Am             D Dsus4 D
Well longer than we do
     C              G
When nothing really mattered
          Am             Em
Except for me to be with you
       C               Am             G
But in time we all forgot and we all grew

         C             G
Your melody sounds as sweet
         Am               Em
As the first time it was sung
        C                G             D Dsus4 D
With a little bit more character for show
     C                G
And by the time your father's heard
   Am                    Em
Of all the wrong you've done
     C               Am
I'm putting out the lantern
          Am7           G
Find your own way back home

   G              Em
If I'd forgotten how to sing
   C               G
Before I sung this song
    C               G
I'd write it all across this wall
   Am              D Dsus4 D
Before my job is done
         C             G
And I'll even have the courtesy
     Am             Em
Of admitting I was wrong
       C              Am                G
As the final words before I'm dead and gone

C                       G
You've never been so divine
     Am              Em
In accepting your defeat
          C                G            D Dsus4 D
And I've never been more scared to be alone
    C            G              Am           Em
If love is not enough to put my enemies to sleep
    C                Am
I'm putting out the lantern
              Am7         G
Find your own way back home

  2. i just enjoy ukuleles

    Sounds better with a capo on the first fret in my opinion.

  3. +5 sounds a lot better in my opinion and its easier if you are a beginner ;)

  4. And for “I’m putting out the lantern, find your own way back home,” instead of doing C, Am, Am7, G, I use C, G, D, G. :) that just sounds better to me.

  5. In my opinion, if you replace most of the Am’s with D’s, it sounds better :) but that’s just me

  6. am i the only one who feels that AM7 sounds weird, like its not the right chord?

  7. bowtiesfezes_are_cool

    In my opinion, you don’t even need the Dsus4 in there. If you find it uncomfortable, try simply continuing on through with D.

  8. i transposed to 5+ because thats a little bit easier for my voice

  9. does anyone know the strumming pattern for this song?

    • if you look at the text below it says that we can’t share strumming patterns, melodies or tempo, because of copyright reasons

    • In my personal opinion, I think DUD works really well for this song but that’s what works for me after playing along to it 7 times

  10. littlemosquito

    I agree with caromcmo and I also replace the A7 with a GBM and then the C instead of the G I personally think it sounds better

  11. ah this is so fun to play!

  12. Nope it does not ^^^^

  13. Ending this on a C instead of a G sounds good as well.

  14. panicatthepianos

    awesome song! It’s easier to play a Dsus2 instead of a Dsus4 if you’re having trouble with that and it sounds really cool too!!

  15. this song is way to fun to play i love it

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
