Intro: D Bm G - 2x -


D
I'm so glad you made the time to see me
Bm
How's life, tell me how's your family
G                        D   A
I haven't seen them in a while
D
You've been good, busier than ever
Bm
We small talk, work and the weather
G                              D  A
You're guard is up, and I know why


Bm                    A
Because the last time you saw me
           D                          G
It's still burned in the back of your mind 
            Bm          A                  G    
You gave me roses and I left them there to die


   D
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            Gbm
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D                A              
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't
- D  -
Nothing but missing you
Gbm      
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G
When you were mine 
       D
I'd go back to December, 
A                           G 
Turn around and make it all right
     Bm               A            
I go back to December all the time


D Bm G - 2x -


D                         
These days I haven't been sleeping
Bm
Stayin' up playing back myself leaving
G                                      D  A 
When your birthday passed and I didn't call
       D            
Then I think about summer all the beautiful times 
Bm
I watch you laughing from the passenger side
G                               D  A
And realized I loved you in the fall


Bm                     A
And then the cold came the dark days
     D                  G
When fear crept into my mind
            Bm                   
You gave me all your love and
      A           G
All I gave you was goodbye


   D
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            Gbm
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D                A             
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't
- D  -
Nothing but missing you
Gbm      
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G
When you were mine 
       D
I'd go back to December, 
A                         G 
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A            
I go back to December all the time


D  Bm G - 2x -
 

            Bm            G 
I miss your tan skin your sweet smile
   D              A
So good to me, so right
            Bm              G
And how you held me in your arms
               D
That September night
                   A           Bm -stop  
The first time you ever saw me cry
                              G -stop
Maybe this is wishful thinking
                          D
Probably mindless dreaming
- D  -                                    A      
If you loved again I swear I'd love you right


       Bm               A               G 
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
          Bm               A           G 
So if the chain is on your door I understand


    D
But this is me swallowing my pride 
            Gbm                             
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D              A
Back to December...
   D  
It turns out freedom ain't
- D  -            
Nothing but missing you
Gbm                              
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G  
When you were mine 
       D  
I'd go back to December 
A                           G                           
Turn around and make it all right
       D         
I'd go back to December
A                         G
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A         
I go back to December all the time

D  Bm G         D  Bm G      
        All the time

Can anyone tell me whats the Strumming pattern please(☆^ー^☆)(☆^ー^☆)

UkuleleGirl

DD UU UDUDU AND D DUD

Tabea T

-2 is much easier

Lily Sue

I think DDUDU is the best strumming pattern for this song :)

Maggie_Potter

Hey? Strumming pattern???

Tabea T

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.

– I took that from under the comment section. They ask you to not ask for strumming patterns… I recommend you google it or listen carefully to the song :)

Hailey Lepird

You literally can ask for a strumming pattern it’s not a big deal

alittleinfinity

I found down two half steps was easiest:)

silenna

it was so great it was sort oflike easy because i’m a fast learner on ukuleles unless the chords to do are long.the chords of his song was hard hard for me on the first time of mine.when i tried it again i got so mastered it already so that’s how i learn the song it was great though it was tiring

UkeLover

I love this song my sister played on the piano for her school talent show.

Taylor Swift

I love you and tell her sister I love her too! <3
Love, Taylor
Hope to see you both at the rep tour!!
Camilla Cabello and Charli XCX will be there too!!!! <3
XOXO

sarika

Is tat u taylor ?

ireallycanttakethisstupidquarantine

ppphhhhtttttt ofc it isnt. do you really think taylor has time to go on a ukulele site and post a random comment for an instrument she doesnt even play?

Georgia Hazel Brisco

Taylor does play ukulele, but agree apart from that.

Gwen loves Taylor Swift and Harry Styles A LOTT :)

i feel your name sooooo hard but honestly if i were famous i would go on random websites, search myself up and comment weird stuff like, “lasagna is the bomb” and no one would no it was me and i could be weird and no one would no. thats probably just a thing i would do though. honestly, no one knows. i could be the real Taylor, you could be, that random person at the bottom of the comments could be her. the one who claimed they were Taylor really could be her. you never know.

Pkmn4ever

for the Bm chord it is easier to do the c chord and it sounds better

Rhinestone_Boy

After the final Bb add an F and say All the time again. It sounds better

shirlzstur

Up 3 half steps :)
