Intro: D A Gbm A G

       D             A               Gbm   A    G
As I choke, try to wash it down with something strong
D            A              G
Dry but the taste of blood remains
D           A              Gbm   A   G
Cold, empty mattresses and falling stars
D             A                 G
My, how they start to look the same

Chorus:
D
So keep in happiness
                     A
And torture me while I tell you,
       G
"Let's go in style"
D
a million hooks around
                   A
a million ways to die
               G      A
Darling, it's cold outside


D           A               Gbm   A   G
No, no more eyes to see the sun
    D          A               Gbm   A   G
You slide into bed while I get drunk
D            A            Gbm
Slow conversations with a gun
A    G         D          A          G
Mean more than I've ever said to anyone

Chorus:
D
So keep in happiness
                     A
And torture me while I tell you,
       G
"Let's go in style"
D
a million hooks around
                   A
a million ways to die
               G      D
Darling, let's go inside
      A
It'll be alright


    D                                    A
But last night, you said you ended up in Palm Springs dancing on tables
        G
Almost fought some bitch at the club
           D                     A
Got kicked out of your hotel and lost your shoes
      D                                A
Well, xxxx, what am I supposed to be, impressed?
                                           G
You're just another set of bones to lay to rest
                       D              A           D
So I'll say goodnight, hope you had a really good time


D                           A                            D       G
And I will soon forget the color of your eyes and you'll forget mine


Chorus:
D
So keep in happiness
                     A
And torture me while I tell you,
       G
"Let's go in style"
D
a million hooks around
                   A
a million ways to die
               G      D
Darling, let's go outside
      A
It'll be alright


  D                                      A
But last night, you said you ended up in Palm Springs dancing on tables

  1. Definitely not a hornet

    Strum pattern? c:

  2. theghosttofyou

    The lyrics are actually right, they’re just for a different version of the song. I never heard the actual Spotify version until a few days ago. Also the chords are okay, they need a bit of work but it’s good for beginners.

  3. Crazedfalconduck

    A bunch of these lyrics ate wrong

  4. Death Of A Vessel

    At the beginning it’s just “Choke/tried to wash you down with something strong/try but the taste of blood remains”

  5. Any suggestions for what to play after ‘taste of blood remains’ and ‘how they start to look the same’? It feels weird to just have silence there and it’s not a continued F I don’t think.

    • This comment was like a year ago but I play it as Gbm instead of G and continue to it, so when it says the G on ‘remains’ and ‘same’, I play Gbm D Gbm G.

  6. twentyoneukeleles

    so great!

  7. killjoysmakesomenoise

    i find bm sounds better than d.

  8. the correct version is -2, this is a little bit off
