Verse:
C                F    
Here I am again, the same old situation
Am7                    F    
Why does the guy thing have to be so complicated?
C                           F    
I should’ve played it cool, instead I made a fool
Am7              F    
Oh, the things I do

Chorus:
C                        D7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Am7                        G
I do stupid things when it comes to love
F                           D7    
And even if I always end up crying
          D                                                       
Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying  


C       F          Am7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        F                          C F     Am7 F    
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

Verse:
C                          F    
I should’ve shut my mouth, I could’ve kept it quiet
Am7                          F    
I might have freaked him out ’cause I was so excited
C                         F    
But I just couldn’t wait, I took a leap of faith
Am7              F    
Oh, the things I say

Chorus:
C                        D7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Am7                        G  
I do stupid things when it comes to love
F                           D7    
And even if I always end up crying
          G                                                     
Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying  


C       F          Am7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        F                          C F     Am7 F    
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

Bridge:
Am7          G        F    
And I think sometimes I tend to be my own worst enemy
Am7          G        F                                             D7    
And maybe someday I’m gonna catch a shooting star falling out of the blue
          G        G 
Do what I do

Verse:
C                          F    
And just as I’m giving up, my heart is palpitating
Am7                     F    
Here comes another one and it's so intoxicating
C                     F    
Being where I’ve been I know that in the end
Am7              F    
I’ll do it all again

Chorus: 
C                        D7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Am7                        G   
I do stupid things when it comes to love
F                           D7    
And even if I always end up crying
F                           D7    
Well, love will find me, there ain’t no denying    
       G                                                      
That you can’t blame a girl for trying  

Outro: 
C       F          Am7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        F                          C F     Am7 F     C
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

  1. K wait this sounds really wrong to me 😂

  2. Chords for all verses that I think sound better:
    C/Dm/Am/F
    Chorus 1 and 2:
    C/Gaug/Am/C7/F/G/C/Dm/Am/F/C/Dm/Am/F
    Bridge:
    Em/Am/Dm/Em/Am/D/G
    Chorus 3:
    C/Gaug/Am/C7/F/G/F/G/C/Dm/Am/F/C/Dm/Am/F/C

  3. I <3 my uke thank you for posting this song

  4. I prefer to use Am is stead of Am7 just sound better and easier also strumming patten for me is DDU UDU

  5. I think it’s Em and Am instead of Em7 and A7

  6. GIRLTREBLE

    I love this song!!! Me and my friend did a duet with this music and won first place in school talent show!!! Thank you UkuTabs and kudos to Sabrina Carpenter!!! You go girl!!!!

  7. If it’s hard for you to play D7 Dm works fine too. :)

  8. Oh my gosh. I am so sorry! I didn’t see the part that said don’t ask for rhthym!

  9. So I don’t know what the actual strumming pattern is, but I’ve been using: D x D x on the verses, and then DDU on the chorus

  10. For most of it I do DUD DUD. Your ways are good too!?✊?

  11. strumming pattern??
