Verse 2 - Same as Verse 1 -

and your twisted words
your help just hurts

hello to high and dry

made me think that i need this too

if your on your way
i'm not gonna write you to stay
if all you have is leavin' im'a need a better reason
to write you a love song today

    thanks for the chords it came in handy

  • ukulilo says:

    the c above “i dont want it for a minute” sounds closer to the original when replaced with Bb

  • Samsonsmith says:

    Honestly is it that hard to add in the entire song rather than putting (same as whatever) because it’s really not that convenient.

  • Ella says:

    Is it really so hard to just put in the same chords again? It’s really annoying when you’re trying to learn a song and have to continuously scroll back and forth to find the lyrics and the chords.

  • Rachel says:

    Can you please add the rest of the chords.

  • chloe_uke says:

    Can you finish the song

  • Samsonsmith says:

    Can we seriously get this finished though cause like I’m tryna learn this song thnx

  • SucittarSucivron says:

    *flips keyboard* I’m going to go to Ultimate guitar for my chords then since this site likes to not write out complete tabs

  • Lilylovesherukulele says:

    I don’t care if you finish the song or not cause you’re just trying to do your best. Thank you for making a tab for this. :);)

  • Jishissmol123 says:

    Very easy and awesome song to perform on uke, thanks for the chords!

  • gracekratz1 says:

    +2 makes it a little easier!

  • Veronica Lodge says:

    intro: Gm, F, Bb (or Bbsus2), C, Dm, C, F, D

  • AugyJefferson says:

    It would be awesome if you were to finish out the chords on your songs. It may seem basic to you, but it is difficult to play a song that you want to learn if you have to scroll back and forth. It’s understandable that you want to get songs finished quickly but at this point I have been finding songs like this constantly and it just seems like you won’t ever finish them. I love this website but I have been going to different ones because of this very problem.
    Thanks! ;)

  • Cari says:

    I agree with others that it’s annoying to have to scroll back to figure out the chords, but otherwise this is spot on! Very nice!

  • SourPatchNerd says:

    Dude. I’m dislexic and this is super hard to read when you don’t put all of the chords. Like honestly. Don’t be lazy, actually do it, it’s not as convenient as you think it is.
