Intro: Ab  Ab  Fm  Ebsus4  Db  Ebsus4
 
Verse 1:
Ab       Ab             Fm
 Betty, I won’t make assumptions
      Ebsus4                Db
About why you changed your homeroom
                          Ebsus4
But I think it’s cause of me
Ab       Ab              Fm
 Betty, one time I was riding
      Ebsus4             Db
on my skateboard when I passed your house
                     Ebsus4
It’s like I couldn’t breathe
 
Pre-Chorus:
Ab             Ab            Fm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Ebsus4            Db
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Ebsus4
But this time it was true
    Fm          Eb       Ab   Db
The worst thing that I ever did
    Fm     Eb      Db    Eb
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Ab                 Ab  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Fm                 Eb
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          Db             Fm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Eb
Or lead me to the garden?
       Ab                Ab  
In the garden would you trust me
     Fm              Eb             Db
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Fm           Eb
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Ab
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: Ab  Fm  Ebsus4  Db  Db  Ebsus4
 
Verse 2:
Ab       Ab               Fm
 Betty, I know where it all went wrong
     Eb                 Db
Your favorite song was playing
                         Eb
from the far side of the gym
Ab      Ab             Fm
 I was nowhere to be found
           Eb
I hate the crowds you know that
Db                          Eb
 Plus I saw you dance with him
 
Pre-Chorus:
Ab             Ab            Fm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Ebsus4            Db
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Ebsus4
But this time it was true
    Fm          Eb       Ab   Db
The worst thing that I ever did
    Fm     Eb      Db    Eb
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Ab                 Ab  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Fm                 Eb
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          Db             Fm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   Eb
Or lead me to the garden?
       Ab                Ab  
In the garden would you trust me
     Fm              Eb             Db
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Fm           Eb
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Ab
But I know I miss you
 
Interlude: Ab  Fm  Eb  Db  Db  Eb
 
Bridge:
Fm                    Eb
I was walking home on broken cobblestones
              Db
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
       Eb
Like a figment of my worst intentions
Fm                            Eb
She said, "James get in let’s drive." Those days
            Db
turned into nights, slept next to her
   Eb                           Ab
But I dreamt of you all summer long

Verse 3:
Ab       Ab                Fm
 Betty, I’m here on your doorstep
      Ebsus4              Db
And I planned it out for weeks now
                         Ebsus4
But it’s finally sinking in
Ab       Ab                Fm
 Betty, right now is the last time
      Ebsus4            Db
I can dream about what happens when
                Ebsus4
You see my face again
    Fm   Eb       Ab       Db
The only thing I want to do
   Fm      Eb     Db    Eb
Is make it up to you
     Ab                 Ab    Fm Eb Db Cm Eb
So I showed up at your party
        Ab                 Ab   Fm Eb Db Cm Eb
Yeah, I showed up at your party
 
Chorus:
     Bb                 Bb   
So I showed up at your party
         Gm               F
Will you have me will you love me
         Eb              Dm
Will you kiss me on the porch
            Cm              F
In front of all your stupid friends?
       Bb                Bb   
If you kiss me, will it be
            Gm
just like I dreamed it
        F                 Eb
Will it patch your broken wings
         Dm          Cm            F
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
             Bb        F Eb
But I know I miss you
 
Outro:
Ebsus2             Bb        F Eb
 Standing in your cardigan
Ebsus2          Bb         F Eb
 Kissing in my car again
Eb
Stopped at a streetlight
            Bb        Bb    Eb
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 :)
