Intro: Bb F C Dm

Bb                            F                       
 People like you always want back 
                    C
The love they gave away
                           Dm           
And people like me wanna believe you 
                       Bb
When you say you cha-a-anged
                          F                    C
The more I think about it now the less I kno-o-ow
                       Dm                      
All I know is that you drove us off the road

  
Bb
Stay, hey
                     F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
Had me in the palm of your hand, hand
                         Dm                C
Why'd you have to go and lock me up when I let you in?


Bb
Stay, hey
                       F
Now you say you want it, back
                       C
Now that it's just too late
                           Dm
Well, it could've been easy
               C           Bb
All you had to do was, stay
                           F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
All you had to do was, stay
                           Dm
All you had to do was, stay
               C
All you had to do was stay 


Bb                            F                          
 Here you are now calling me up 
                         C
but I don't know what to say
                         Dm           
I've been picking up the pieces 
       C            Bb
Of the mess you made
                            F                        
People like you always want back 
                      C
The love they pushed aside
                            Dm 
And people like me are gone forever 

When you say goodbye


Bb
Stay, hey
                     F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
Had me in the palm of your hand, hand
                         Dm                C
Why'd you have to go and lock me up when I let you in?


Bb
Stay, hey
                       F
Now you say you want it, back
                       C
Now that it's just too late
                           Dm
Well, it could've been easy
               C           Bb
All you had to do was, stay
                           F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
All you had to do was, stay
                      Dm
All you had to do was  



                  
Let me remind you 
Bb        F        C           Dm      C
This was what you wanted ohohoh,  you ended it
Bb        F     C            Dm     C            G*

         F     C 
Not like this
             Dm 
Not like this
                  
Oh, all you had to do was

Had me in the palm of your hand, hand
                         Dm                C
Why'd you have to go and lock me up when I let you in?

  1. FGCA is easier and fun to play!

  2. -5 is definitely the easiest.

  3. if you end on stay with an f it resolves nicely

  4. I think it’s “lock me out” not lock me up. Great chords though!
