Intro: Db  Db  Bbm  Absus4  Gb  Absus4
 
Verse 1:
Db       Db             Bbm
 Betty, I won’t make assumptions
      Absus4                Gb
About why you changed your homeroom
                          Absus4
But I think it’s cause of me
Db       Db              Bbm
 Betty, one time I was riding
      Absus4             Gb
on my skateboard when I passed your house
                     Absus4
It’s like I couldn’t breathe
 
Pre-Chorus:
Db             Db            Bbm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Absus4            Gb
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Absus4
But this time it was true
    Bbm          Ab       Db   Gb
The worst thing that I ever did
    Bbm     Ab      Gb    Ab
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Db                 Db  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Bbm                 Ab
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          Gb             Bbm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Ab
Or lead me to the garden?
       Db                Db  
In the garden would you trust me
     Bbm              Ab             Gb
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Bbm           Ab
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Db
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: Db  Bbm  Absus4  Gb  Gb  Absus4
 
Verse 2:
Db       Db               Bbm
 Betty, I know where it all went wrong
     Ab                 Gb
Your favorite song was playing
                         Ab
from the far side of the gym
Db      Db             Bbm
 I was nowhere to be found
           Ab
I hate the crowds you know that
Gb                          Ab
 Plus I saw you dance with him
 
Pre-Chorus:
Db             Db            Bbm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Absus4            Gb
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Absus4
But this time it was true
    Bbm          Ab       Db   Gb
The worst thing that I ever did
    Bbm     Ab      Gb    Ab
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Db                 Db  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Bbm                 Ab
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          Gb             Bbm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Ab
Or lead me to the garden?
       Db                Db  
In the garden would you trust me
     Bbm              Ab             Gb
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Bbm           Ab
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Db
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: Db  Bbm  Ab  Gb  Gb  Ab
 
Bridge:
Bbm                    Ab
I was walking home on broken cobblestones
              Gb
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
       Ab
Like a figment of my worst intentions
Bbm                            Ab
She said, "James get in let’s drive." Those days
            Gb
turned into nights, slept next to her
   Ab                           Db
But I dreamt of you all summer long
 
Interlude:
   Db  Bbm  Ab  Gb  Gb  Ab
   Bbm Ab   Gb
   Gbm
 
Verse 3:
Db       Db                Bbm
 Betty, I’m here on your doorstep
      Absus4              Gb
And I planned it out for weeks now
                         Absus4
But it’s finally sinking in
Db       Db                Bbm
 Betty, right now is the last time
      Absus4            Gb
I can dream about what happens when
                Absus4
You see my face again
    Bbm   Ab       Db       Gb
The only thing I want to do
   Bbm      Ab     Gb    Ab
Is make it up to you
     Db                 Db    Bbm Ab Gb Fm Ab
So I showed up at your party
        Db                 Db   Bbm Ab Gb Fm Ab
Yeah, I showed up at your party
 
Chorus:
     Eb                 Eb   
So I showed up at your party
         Cm               Bb
Will you have me will you love me
         Ab              Gm
Will you kiss me on the porch
            Fm              Bb
In front of all your stupid friends?
       Eb                Eb   
If you kiss me, will it be
            Cm
just like I dreamed it
        Bb                 Ab
Will it patch your broken wings
         Gm          Fm            Bb
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
             Eb        Bb Ab
But I know I miss you
 
Outro:
Absus2             Eb        Bb Ab
 Standing in your cardigan
Absus2          Eb         Bb Ab
 Kissing in my car again
Ab
Stopped at a streetlight
            Eb        Eb    Ab
you know, I miss you

this song gets me everytime 💛for the strumming pattern i did a single stroke and then DDU for prechorus and the chorus. i think it sounds pretty if you do single stroke on “the worst thing that i ever did” part too.

Ally

Instead of the two Cs side by side at the beginning of each verse I changed the second C to a G; I think it sounds much more fluid. After the key change I switched the second D to an A, not sure if another chord would suit better but it seems ok.. hope this helps!

Ely

if you don’t feel ✨comfortable✨ saying “tell me to go **** myself” the non-explicit version says “tell me to go straight to hell”. it’s a nice alternative and it has the same meaning :>

Bella

Please listen to the original then LOLO’s version from betty’s view. And then the cover from August/Inez’s point of view on YouTube it really tells the story.

Kenzie Corcoran

anyone know the strumming pattern??

mathilde

I used DD-UDU, single stroke at first and last “the wrost thing that i ever did”!

zoe

i used DdDd which is just soft and light strums and i think it sounds really good. i also did the same as other people on the “worst thing that I ever did” with single strum:) I feel this song you can also use judgement as to when strumming should be soft/hard.

zoe

wait sorry meant soft and hard strums not soft nd light whoops

Pearl

I loooove this song! I think its so cool that taylor has matured and is singing more sof songs than her upbeat reputation! Thanks! this was so much help!

sadboy

if you switch out gsus4 for g7 it’s easier and i think it sounds better :)
