Intro: Gb


Gb                  
Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago
Db
I was in your sights, you got me alone
Ebm                              B
You found me, you found me, you found me-e-e-e-e


Gb
I guess you didn't care, and I guess liked that
    Db
And when I fell hard, you took a step back
    Ebm                      B          Gb
Without me, without me, without meeeee


              Db                       Ebm
And he's long gone, when he's next to me and I 
       B                   -stop
Realize the blame is on me


       Ebm              Abm                        Db 
'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
       Gb        Db      Ebm 
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Abm                  Db 
Flew me to places I'd never been 
          Gb      Db 
'Till you put me down, oh
Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in 
       Gb        Db      Ebm
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Abm                  Db
Flew me to places I'd never been
        Gb -mute                Ebm
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!


Ebm  B   Db            Gb        Db      Ebm 
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Ebm  B   Db            Gb        Db
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble


Gb
No apologies, he'll never see you cry
   Db
Pretends he doesn't know, that he's the reason why
       Ebm                                B 
You're drowning, you're drowning, you're drowning-e-e-e-ing


      Gb
Now I heard you moved on, the whispers on the street
  Db
a new notch in your belt, it's all I'll ever be
    Ebm                    B                Gb
And now I see, now I see, now I see-e-e-e-e


            Db                 Ebm
He was long gone, when he met me
            B                      B -once
And I realize, the joke is on me,  yeah


Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
       Gb        Db      Ebm
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Abm                  Db
Flew me to places I'd never been 
          Gb      Db
'Till you put me down, oh
Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in 
       Gb        Db      Ebm
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Abm                  Db
Flew me to places I'd never been
        Gb            Db         Ebm
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!

Ebm  B   Db            Gb        Db      Ebm 
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Ebm  B   Db            Gb        Db
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble


        Abm                 Ebm 
And the sadest fear, comes creepin' in
         Abm 
That you never loved me or her, 
   Db          B         Db
Or anyone, or anything, yeah yeah 


Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in

It's a shame on me now-ow
           Abm                  Db
Flew me to places I'd never been - never been -
          Gb      Db
'Till you put me down, oh
Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in - you were right there -
       Gb        Db      Ebm
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Abm                  Db
Flew me to places I'd never been
        Gb            Db         Ebm
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!

Ebm  B   Db            Gb        Db      Ebm 
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Ebm  B   Db            Gb        Db
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble


Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
         Gb        Db       
Trouble, trouble, trouble
Ebm              Abm                       Db
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
         Gb        Db
trouble, trouble, trouble

  1. I try to help

    do +1 with a capo on the first fret. Sounds just like the original.

  2. Just do +1 and so C instead of B

Please 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.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
