Intro: C  G  Am  F

C
We were both young when i first saw you 
F
I close my eyes and the flashback starts 
Am                       F
Im standing there on a balcony of summer air 


C
See the lights, See the party the ball gowns 
       F
I see you make your way through the crowd 
          Am
And say hello 
              G
Little did i know 


           F                      G
That you were romeo you were throwing pebbles 
          Am                       C
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet 
            F
And i was crying on the staircase 
  G                      Am         C
Begging you please don't go, and i said 


  C
Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone 
 G
I'll be waiting all theres left to do is run 
 Am
You'll be the prince and i'll be the princess 
 F                G                 C
Its a love story baby just say yes 


 C
So i sneak out to the garden to see you 
 F
We keep quite because we're dead if they know 
 Am
So close your eyes 
        G
Escape this town for a little while


            F                   G
Cause you were Romeo I was a scarlet letter 
         Am                        C
and my daddy said stay away from Juliet 
         F
But you were everything to me 
            G                      Am            C
and i was begging you please don't go and i said 


 C
Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone 
 G
I'll be waiting all theres left to do is run 
 Am
You be the prince i'll be the princess 
 F                G                 C
Its a love story baby just say yes 


  C
Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel
  G
This love is difficult, but it's real
  Am
Don’t be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
 F                G 
Its a love story baby just say yes, oh

Solo: C  G  Am  F

                 Am     
I got tired of waiting, 
F               C              G
  wondering if you were ever coming around 
             Am        F
My faith in you was fading
                         C           G
Then i met you on the outskirts of town and i said 


  C
Romeo save me i've been feeling so alone 
   G
I keep waiting for you but you never come 
    Am
Is this in my head, i don't know what to think 
     F                       G
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said


  D
Marry me Juliet you'll never have to be alone 
   A
I love you and thats all I really know 
   Bm
I talked to your dad go pick out a white dress
 G                 A            D
Its a love story baby just say yes 


D   A   Bm
Oh, oh, yes 
         G                           D
We were very young when i first saw you

The strumming pattern is D-D-U-U-D-U-.

I’m not sure if it’s the real one but the videos I’ve seen used the strumming pattern. (it’s called the island strum)

Loreline Kate

Thank you!

I love fortnite and minecraft

ummmm you didn’t have to comment anything. Take the L

Not gonna say

Then why are you commenting? You’re the one that didn’t have to comment anything. :(

Nishinoya-senpai

what are you? 9? its basic courtesy to say thank you ya know

Alexa

your name is the ugliest thing iv’e ever heard

Not gonna say

People could say that about your name. Not that it’s a bad name.

Not gonna say

But it depends on who you’re talking about. :)

Aubrey

thats really mean alexa

Leah

Yeah you probably shouldn’t be committing on these tabs Alexa you seriously shouldn’t be cause you are just being plain old disgusting with your rudeness and meanness

Alex

don’t be rude

Livvy

Ok but can you play despacito 2?

grass

dirt

Definitely, XD!

Nishinoya-senpai

omg yes pls-

Nishinoya-senpai

i a g r e e

way

Willing to bet $20 no one in this comment thread is over 16 lmfao

Mads26

I love fortnite and mincraft, don’t be so rude. They comment so people can ask about stuff that isn’t included. It’s helpful

Dontbeshyputsomemore

Nobody asked bro u r so salty

Aubrey

Nishinoya-senpai

like tsukkishima- im sorry… but still that fortnite kid was being pretty rude…

Leah

Excactly!!!

httpbecky

i use D-D-U-U-D without the extra upstrum because it’s easier for me but it sounds great!

Musicrox29

Thank you I really like people like you who actually comment something helpful

ukulila

Jeez why y’all all so bitter down here. Relax guys

Hi 👋🏻

I Agree

Vic

I dubble agree

Aubrey

THANK you

Uku-let's go!

i triple agree

Sophie Foster

I find it hilarious that the comments on “Where Have You Been?” is all mean and hating on names but on “Can’t Help Falling in Love” there’s literally a giant chain which consists of people saying ‘I like your name’. XD Ohhhhhhhhh the arguments that happen on ukutabs are epic.

Sophie Foster

I meant “Love Story” wrong song :PPPP

Aubrey

u like the keeper of the lost cities books, dont you.

Elaxiber

Hey what do D and U mean? (Sorry i’m new to this)

Jaimie

You don’t have to apologize! D and U mean down strum and up strum. So for instance d-d-u-u-d-u means Down strum- down strum- up strum- up strum- down strum- up strum. :) hope that helps

Nishinoya-senpai

agh these are the ppl i’m looking for on ukutabs- I send u love

Leah

D means down and U means up! Good luck with your ukulele journey!!

Leah

Ok there are soo many meanness on the poor guy you guys can seriously stop now he is just telling us a recommendation of a strumming pattern just like what people do on other tabs when they tell you a easier transpose Like stop being mean!
And thanks for the strumming pattern recommendation although I use a mixer between DDDDDD and DUDUDU
But thanks unknown!

melissa

i agree

electra

scoopskipotato

taylor

its we were both young you look it up

Aubrey

yeah it is

Amy

Hey guys! The strumming pattern that I find works best with this is d-u-D-u-d-u-D-u (The capital is for a heavy down)

Ukulele Pro

The strumming pattern I like is U-D-U-D-U-D… I would do down strums for the first verse and then change it to the down-up when the chorus hits. For the second verse, you can either strum down-up or you can down strum again like verse 1, up to you. For the part where it goes “Romeo save me, I’ve been feeling so alone. I keep waiting for you but you never come.” you should down strum quietly and then when it goes “Is this in my head, I don’t know what to think. He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said” I would do a crescendo while strumming down-up. The lines after I would strum down-up super hard to show emotion. Then the second to last line do down strums and the last line do down strums and strum up on the last word “you” quietly. These are my thoughts on the strumming pattern for this song but do whatever you think works the best!

Tsuki

This song is amazing! I love it so much!

Musicrox29

same!

Nishinoya-senpai

TSUKKI- HELLO

Kageyama

Thank you, Lily! That was very helpful, as I am a beginner in ukulele. And y’all, stop hating. That’s not what we were put on this Earth for.
