Intro: B  B  Abm  Gbsus4  E  Gbsus4
 
Verse 1:
B       B             Abm
 Betty, I won’t make assumptions
      Gbsus4                E
About why you changed your homeroom
                          Gbsus4
But I think it’s cause of me
B       B              Abm
 Betty, one time I was riding
      Gbsus4             E
on my skateboard when I passed your house
                     Gbsus4
It’s like I couldn’t breathe
 
Pre-Chorus:
B             B            Abm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Gbsus4            E
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Gbsus4
But this time it was true
    Abm          Gb       B   E
The worst thing that I ever did
    Abm     Gb      E    Gb
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              B                 B  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Abm                 Gb
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          E             Abm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Gb
Or lead me to the garden?
       B                B  
In the garden would you trust me
     Abm              Gb             E
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Abm           Gb
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  B
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: B  Abm  Gbsus4  E  E  Gbsus4
 
Verse 2:
B       B               Abm
 Betty, I know where it all went wrong
     Gb                 E
Your favorite song was playing
                         Gb
from the far side of the gym
B      B             Abm
 I was nowhere to be found
           Gb
I hate the crowds you know that
E                          Gb
 Plus I saw you dance with him
 
Pre-Chorus:
B             B            Abm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Gbsus4            E
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Gbsus4
But this time it was true
    Abm          Gb       B   E
The worst thing that I ever did
    Abm     Gb      E    Gb
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              B                 B  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Abm                 Gb
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          E             Abm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Gb
Or lead me to the garden?
       B                B  
In the garden would you trust me
     Abm              Gb             E
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Abm           Gb
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  B
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: B  Abm  Gb  E  E  Gb
 
Bridge:
Abm                    Gb
I was walking home on broken cobblestones
              E
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
       Gb
Like a figment of my worst intentions
Abm                            Gb
She said, "James get in let’s drive." Those days
            E
turned into nights, slept next to her
   Gb                           B
But I dreamt of you all summer long
 
Interlude:
   B  Abm  Gb  E  E  Gb
   Abm Gb   E
   Em
 
Verse 3:
B       B                Abm
 Betty, I’m here on your doorstep
      Gbsus4              E
And I planned it out for weeks now
                         Gbsus4
But it’s finally sinking in
B       B                Abm
 Betty, right now is the last time
      Gbsus4            E
I can dream about what happens when
                Gbsus4
You see my face again
    Abm   Gb       B       E
The only thing I want to do
   Abm      Gb     E    Gb
Is make it up to you
     B                 B    Abm Gb E Ebm Gb
So I showed up at your party
        B                 B   Abm Gb E Ebm Gb
Yeah, I showed up at your party
 
Chorus:
     Db                 Db   
So I showed up at your party
         Bbm               Ab
Will you have me will you love me
         Gb              Fm
Will you kiss me on the porch
            Ebm              Ab
In front of all your stupid friends?
       Db                Db   
If you kiss me, will it be
            Bbm
just like I dreamed it
        Ab                 Gb
Will it patch your broken wings
         Fm          Ebm            Ab
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
             Db        Ab Gb
But I know I miss you
 
Outro:
Gbsus2             Db        Ab Gb
 Standing in your cardigan
Gbsus2          Db         Ab Gb
 Kissing in my car again
Gb
Stopped at a streetlight
            Db        Db    Gb
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 :)
