Verse:
Gbm                           Asus2                         E
 two jumps in a week a bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy?
Gbm                        Asus2                       E
Flying on your motorcycle, watching all the ground beneath you drop
      Gbm                            Asus2                   E
You'd kill yourself for recognition, kill yourself to never ever stop
    Gbm                          Asus2                   E
You broke another mirror, you're turning into something you are not

Verse:
Gbm                       Asus2                     E
 drying up in conversation you will be the one who cannot talk
Gbm    
All your insides fall to pieces
Asus2                                  E
you just sit there wishing you could still make love
Gbm    
they're the ones who'll hate you
         Asus2                     E
when you think you got the world all sussed out
Gbm                                   Asus2                   E
they're the one's who'll spit at you, you will be the one screaming out

Chorus:
               Gbm       
 don't leave me high     
Asus2             E
   don't leave me dry    
               Gbm       
Don't leave me high

The best thing that you ever, ever had
         Gbm    
It's the best thing that you ever had
    Asus2                        E
The best thing you have had has gone away

Chorus:
                  Gbm       
 so don't leave me high     
Asus2             E
   don't leave me dry    
               Gbm       
Don't leave me high      
Asus2             E
  don't leave me dry    
               Gbm       Asus2   E
Don't leave me high    
               Gbm

  1. that one soprano

    If you are a female soprano singer like me, I’d suggest going with +5, as the chords are relatively easier to play, and the tune goes very well with that type of voice, especially if you can go pretty high. Hope this helps! :)

  2. cyberdog

    -4 sounds best to me

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.
