Intro: Dm F Gm A 

Dm                                 F
I was fine just a guy living on my own,
                         Gm
Waiting for the sky to fall
                                A
Then you called and changed it all,

Doll,


Dm                                   F
Velvet lips and the eyes to pull me in,
                            Gm
We both know you'd already win,
                  A
Mm your original sin,


Bb                             C       
You fooled me once with your eyes now honey,
Bb                              A
You fooled me twice with your lies and I say,


F                                Dm     
Sarah smiles like Sarah doesn't care,
                             Bb
She lives in her world so unaware,
                        C
Does she know that my destiny lies with her,
 F       Bb     C     Bb
Sarah -Sarah, Sarah, Sarah-
     F      C              Bb
Oh Sarah -Sarah- are you saving me?


Dm                                      F
Waking up to a kiss and you're on your way,
                               Gm
I really hoped that you would stay,
                                A
But you left and went your own way,

Babe,


Dm                                           F
I don't mind take your time I got things to do,
                                 Gm 
Besides sit around and wait for you,
                      A
Oh and I hope you do too,


Bb                             C
You fooled me once with your eyes now honey,
Bb                             A
You fooled me twice with your lies and I say,


F                                Dm
Sarah smiles like Sarah doesn't care,
                            Bb
She lives in her world so unaware,
                          C
Does she know that my destiny lies with her,
F Bb C Bb
Sarah,
     F Bb C
Oh Sarah,
          Bb
are you saving me?


Gm                    Dm
And it's killing me inside,
Gm                F
Consuming all my time,
                 Gm
You've left me blind,
                      Dm
And when I think I'm right,
                    Gm
You strip away my pride,
                  A
You cast it all aside but I say,


F -one strum-
Sarah smiles like Sarah doesn't care,
Dm                          Bb
She lives in her world so unaware,
                        C
Does she know that my destiny lies with her,
F  Bb  C  Bb
Sarah -Sarah-
    F       C             Bb
Oh Sarah -Sarah- are you saving me?

    If you’re a higher singer you can go up up an octave instead of down on “doll” and “babe”. Not really uke related but thought it might help somebody

  2. SpaceCatfood

    +2 works well for my vocal range

  3. At the end, when it goes “Are you saving me?” Add an F chord after “me” to kinda wrap up the whole song. Only at the very last line, though.

  4. thefairlylocalgarbagedisposal

    i use DD DU for the strumming pattern

  5. Sarah makes me nut

    lol good song

  6. Cattttttt

    Replacing C with Am sounds real neat bc it clashes into a cluster chord but goes together really well :)

  7. Not only is -5 easier, but it sounds so much better too :)

  8. HoldingOntoJoshDun

    Thanks so much!

  9. babypotato.inc

    is it just me who thinks that c doesnt belong in the pre chourus it just sound wrong to me

  10. coconut shark in the water

    verses: D D UUD DDU
    pre-chorus: DDDDDDDDU
    choruses: DDU UDU – DDDDU – DDDDU (on Bb it’s one D strum)
    bridge: DDDDDDDDU
    it seems pretty hard but once you’ve practised it it’s easier

  11. someonethatlikesmusic

    +2

  12. Does anyone know the strumming patteren?

  13. My name is Sarah so it feels like he is singing to me

  14. Strum pattern??

  15. Yeah, it’s Dm but thank u so much this song is 11/10

  16. -5 has easier chords

  17. GeorgianGuitarist

    Agreed^ It’s Dm
    Also you could throw in a quick Gm just before the the Dm of the chorus if you want to sound a bit fancier!

  18. riptideuker97

    nah, Dm is correct.

  19. im prety sure that in the chorus when they are singing sarah its supposed to be F C Bb C.
