Intro: G C Em D C

                    G                        C
I say remember this moment In the back of my mind
                            Em
The time we stood with our shaking hands
     D                      C
The crowds in stands went wild 
                          G
We were the kings and the queens
                      C
And they read off our names 
                              Em
The night you danced like you knew our lives
       D              C
Would never be the same
                           Em                      C
You held your head like a hero On a history book page
                     Em   D                      C
It was the end of a decade But the start of an age

Chorus
       G                          C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C               G
One day we will be remembered

Verse 2
                      G                             C
I said remember this feeling I passed the pictures around
                          Em                 D
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
           C
Wishing for right now
                          G                                          C
We are the kings and the queens You traded your baseball cap for a crown
                       Em              D                    C
When they gave us our trophies And we held them up for our town
                    Em                              C
And the cynics were outraged Screaming, "this is absurd"
                       Em
'Cause for a moment a band of thieves in 
D                        C
ripped up jeans got to rule the world

Chorus
       G                          C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em                 D
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid
      G                           C
Long live all the mountains we moved
                      Em
I had the time of my life
                       D
Fighting dragons with you
                        G                     C
I was screaming, "long live the look on your face"
                       Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C                G
One day we will be remembered

Bridge
C            Em
Hold on to spinning around
    C     Em
Confetti falls to the ground
          C
May these memories break our fall

Verse 3
                 G
And you take a moment
            C
Promise me this:
                          Em
That you'll stand by me forever
        D                          C
But if God forbid fate should step in
                     G
And force us into a goodbye
                          C
If you have children someday
                        Em     D
When they point to the pictures
                     C
Please tell them my name
                    C
Tell them how the crowds went wild
                 D
Tell them how I hope they shine

Chorus
      G                            C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                      Em         D
I had the time of my life with you
           G                          C
Long,long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em                 D
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid
      G                           C
Long live all the mountains we moved
                      Em
I had the time of my life
                       D
Fighting dragons with you
      G                     C
long live the look on your face
                       Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C                G
One day we will be remembered

  1. What is the strumming pattern?

  2. MyPrettyWeeper

    This is one of my favorite Taylor Swift songs! Really easy and fun to play.

  3. Transpose +5 for easy chords that also sound pretty good

  4. I feel like Em7 sounds better than Em??

  5. lizzie1218

    I love this song so much. The graduating class at my school just sang this as their class song. GOING TO MISS ALL YOU SENIORS!

  6. I think the C sounds right but the D doesn’t. This is just my opinion though.

  7. I dont think the C chord sounds right, does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement chord please?? Thanks.

  8. I dont think the C chord sounds right, does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement chord please?? Thanks :)
