Intro: Gb  Gb  Ebm  Dbsus4  B  Dbsus4
 
Verse 1:
Gb       Gb             Ebm
 Betty, I won’t make assumptions
      Dbsus4                B
About why you changed your homeroom
                          Dbsus4
But I think it’s cause of me
Gb       Gb              Ebm
 Betty, one time I was riding
      Dbsus4             B
on my skateboard when I passed your house
                     Dbsus4
It’s like I couldn’t breathe
 
Pre-Chorus:
Gb             Gb            Ebm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Dbsus4            B
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Dbsus4
But this time it was true
    Ebm          Db       Gb   B
The worst thing that I ever did
    Ebm     Db      B    Db
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Gb                 Gb  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Ebm                 Db
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          B             Ebm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Db
Or lead me to the garden?
       Gb                Gb  
In the garden would you trust me
     Ebm              Db             B
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Ebm           Db
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Gb
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: Gb  Ebm  Dbsus4  B  B  Dbsus4
 
Verse 2:
Gb       Gb               Ebm
 Betty, I know where it all went wrong
     Db                 B
Your favorite song was playing
                         Db
from the far side of the gym
Gb      Gb             Ebm
 I was nowhere to be found
           Db
I hate the crowds you know that
B                          Db
 Plus I saw you dance with him
 
Pre-Chorus:
Gb             Gb            Ebm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Dbsus4            B
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Dbsus4
But this time it was true
    Ebm          Db       Gb   B
The worst thing that I ever did
    Ebm     Db      B    Db
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Gb                 Gb  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Ebm                 Db
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          B             Ebm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Db
Or lead me to the garden?
       Gb                Gb  
In the garden would you trust me
     Ebm              Db             B
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Ebm           Db
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Gb
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: Gb  Ebm  Db  B  B  Db
 
Bridge:
Ebm                    Db
I was walking home on broken cobblestones
              B
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
       Db
Like a figment of my worst intentions
Ebm                            Db
She said, "James get in let’s drive." Those days
            B
turned into nights, slept next to her
   Db                           Gb
But I dreamt of you all summer long
 
Interlude:
   Gb  Ebm  Db  B  B  Db
   Ebm Db   B
   Bm
 
Verse 3:
Gb       Gb                Ebm
 Betty, I’m here on your doorstep
      Dbsus4              B
And I planned it out for weeks now
                         Dbsus4
But it’s finally sinking in
Gb       Gb                Ebm
 Betty, right now is the last time
      Dbsus4            B
I can dream about what happens when
                Dbsus4
You see my face again
    Ebm   Db       Gb       B
The only thing I want to do
   Ebm      Db     B    Db
Is make it up to you
     Gb                 Gb    Ebm Db B Bbm Db
So I showed up at your party
        Gb                 Gb   Ebm Db B Bbm Db
Yeah, I showed up at your party
 
Chorus:
     Ab                 Ab   
So I showed up at your party
         Fm               Eb
Will you have me will you love me
         Db              Cm
Will you kiss me on the porch
            Bbm              Eb
In front of all your stupid friends?
       Ab                Ab   
If you kiss me, will it be
            Fm
just like I dreamed it
        Eb                 Db
Will it patch your broken wings
         Cm          Bbm            Eb
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
             Ab        Eb Db
But I know I miss you
 
Outro:
Dbsus2             Ab        Eb Db
 Standing in your cardigan
Dbsus2          Ab         Eb Db
 Kissing in my car again
Db
Stopped at a streetlight
            Ab        Ab    Db
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
