Intro: G  D  C  D  G  D  C  D

Verse:
G
You must have been in a place so dark
C                     G
You couldn’t feel the light
Em               D                   Cadd9
Reaching for you through that stormy cloud
G                               C           G
Now here we are gathered in our little home town
G                         D               Cadd9  G
This can’t be the way you meant to draw a crowd

Chorus:
    Bm               C
Oh, why? That’s what I keep asking
          G                     D         D
Was there anything I could have said or done?
    Bm       C                       G
Oh, I had no clue you were masking a troubled soul
    D          D           Em  D
God only knows   what went wrong
    C   Em         Am                     D           G  
and why      you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Interlude: D  C  D  G  D  C  D

Verse:
    G                                 C       G
Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a 17-year old
Em                D                 Cadd9
Rounding third to score the winning run
G                                 C               G
You always played with passion no matter what the game
         G                  D                    Cadd9  G
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

Chorus:
    Bm               C
Oh, why? That’s what I keep asking
          G                     D       D
Was there anything I could have said or done?
    Bm       C                       G
Oh, I had no clue you were masking a troubled soul
    D          D           Em  D
God only knows   what went wrong
    C   G         Am                     D           Em  
and why     you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Interlude:
   D  C  G  Em  D  C  G  
   A  A  A  A   Em7  C

Verse:
        G                          C            G
Now the oak trees a-swaying in the early autumn breeze
    Em            D             Cadd9
The golden sun is shining on my face
G                           C            G
Tangled thoughts I hear the mocking bird sing
G                     D                Cadd9  G
This old world really ain’t that bad a place

Chorus:
    Bm              C
Oh, why? There’s no comprehending
    G                  D             D
And who am I to try to judge or ex - plain
    Bm            C
But I do have one burning question
    G                    D             D
Who told you life wasn’t worth the fight
          Em  D
They were wrong
     C
They lied
           Em   D        C
Now you’re gone   and we cry
G                  Am     D                            G     D    C
It’s just not like you to walk away in the middle of a song


                 D   G     D    C  D  
Your beaut - i - ful song


     G       D    C  D           D   G
Your absolutely      beaut – i - ful song

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.
