Intro:
        C G D Em  C G D
Ah ah oh...
        C G D Em  C G D
Ah ah oh...


C           G
You were in college, 
        D         Em
Workin' part time waitin' tables
C      G          D                           
Left a small town never looked back


C         G          D        Em
  I was a flight risk, with a fear of fallin'
C                G           D - once
Wonderin' why we bother with love

If it never lasts.


C G   D                       C G                       
   I say "Can you believe it?" 
D                         C G
 As were lyin on the couch
    D                      C    G
The moment I could see it, yes, yes
D - once -
I can see it now


C                       G                          D
Do you remember we were sittin' there by the water?
                        Em          Dsus2       C
You put your arm around me- for the first time.
                      G                               D
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
                        Em          Dsus2     C  
You are the best thing- that's ever been mine.


C       G                 D             Em            C
  Flash forward and we're takin' on the world together
              G        D             Em         C
And there's a drawer of my things at your place
             G               D
You learn my secrets and you figure out
Em              C
Why I'm guarded.
              G             D once
You say we'll never make my parents mistakes


C G D
     But we got bills to pay
C G D
     We got nothin' figured out
C G D                          C    G
     When it was hard to take, yes, yes
D
 This is what I thought about.


C                       G                          D
Do you remember we were sittin' there by the water?
                        Em          Dsus2       C
You put your arm around me- for the first time.
                      G                               D
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
                        Em          Dsus2      C  
You are the best thing- that's ever been mine.


C                       G                        D
Do you remember all the city lights on the water?
                          Em         Dsus2      C
You saw me start to believe- for the first time


                      G                               D
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
                        Em          Dsus2     C G D     
You are the best thing- that's ever been mine.

Interlude:
              C G  D
     Oh oh ohh..
          

      Em                   C
And I remember that fight, 2:30 am
       G
'Cause everything was slippin' right
Em          Dsus2
Out of our hands


  Em                 C                           Dsus2
I ran out cryin' and you followed me out into the street....


C G         D
   Braced myself for the goodbye 
C G             D
   'Cause that's all I've ever known
C G        D
   And you took me by surprise, 
C G            D                      C once
   You said "I'll never leave you alone"


-palm muted-
          C                 G                         D
You said "I remember how we felt sittin' by the water
                         Em                Dsus2 D
And everytime I look at you, it's like the first time
C                     G
I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter
D                     Em          Dsus2 D
She is the best thing that's ever been  mine"


C                G
- Hold on, we can make it last -
D          Em         D
- Hold on -, never turn back


C                     G                               D
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
                        Em          Dsus2                     
You are the best thing- that's ever been mine


C          G                  C
- Hold on -, Do you believe it?
           G
- Hold on -, We're gonna make it now
C         G
- Hold on - And I can see it
C      G       Dsus2 once
- Yeah, yeah... I can see it now, see it now, see it now -

    Love playing this. I definitely think +5 is best

  2. +5 is the easiest

  3. I find it sounds better to play Gsus2 instead of Dsus2

  4. MidNightSparkles

    I think +5 is super easy!

  5. taylor001

  6. this is awesome all the 2008 memories are flooding back!
