Verse:
Ab                Db    
Here I am again, the same old situation
Fm7                    Db    
Why does the guy thing have to be so complicated?
Ab                           Db    
I should’ve played it cool, instead I made a fool
Fm7              Db    
Oh, the things I do

Chorus:
Ab                        Bb7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Fm7                        Eb
I do stupid things when it comes to love
Db                           Bb7    
And even if I always end up crying
          Bb                                                       
Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying  


Ab       Db          Fm7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        Db                          Ab Db     Fm7 Db    
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

Verse:
Ab                          Db    
I should’ve shut my mouth, I could’ve kept it quiet
Fm7                          Db    
I might have freaked him out ’cause I was so excited
Ab                         Db    
But I just couldn’t wait, I took a leap of faith
Fm7              Db    
Oh, the things I say

Chorus:
Ab                        Bb7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Fm7                        Eb  
I do stupid things when it comes to love
Db                           Bb7    
And even if I always end up crying
          Eb                                                     
Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying  


Ab       Db          Fm7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        Db                          Ab Db     Fm7 Db    
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

Bridge:
Fm7          Eb        Db    
And I think sometimes I tend to be my own worst enemy
Fm7          Eb        Db                                             Bb7    
And maybe someday I’m gonna catch a shooting star falling out of the blue
          Eb        Eb 
Do what I do

Verse:
Ab                          Db    
And just as I’m giving up, my heart is palpitating
Fm7                     Db    
Here comes another one and it's so intoxicating
Ab                     Db    
Being where I’ve been I know that in the end
Fm7              Db    
I’ll do it all again

Chorus: 
Ab                        Bb7    
‘Cause I’m young and I’m dumb
Fm7                        Eb   
I do stupid things when it comes to love
Db                           Bb7    
And even if I always end up crying
Db                           Bb7    
Well, love will find me, there ain’t no denying    
       Eb                                                      
That you can’t blame a girl for trying  

Outro: 
Ab       Db          Fm7
Oooohhh      Oooohhhh
        Db                          Ab Db     Fm7 Db     Ab
No, you can’t blame a girl for trying

  1. HAHA Me too. Like wtf. It doesn’t even have the strumming pattern.

  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??
