Verse 1:
C                            G  
  The buttons of my coat were, tangled in my hair
Am                             G                        F
   In doctor's office lighting, I didn't tell you I was scared
G                                 C
  That was the first time we were there
 

                   G  
Holy orange bottles, each night I pray to you
Am                             G                       F
   Desperate people find faith, so now I pray to Jesus too
G
  And I say to you
 
Chorus:
C         G  
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
F         G
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
Am     G                    F
Ooh-ah, you'll get better soon
G  
    'Cause you have to

Interlude: C  G  Am  G
 
Verse 2:
C                       G  
  I know delusion when I, see it in the mirror
Am                           G                          F
   You like the nicer nurses, you make the best of a bad deal
G                         C
  I just pretend it isn't real
 

                           G  
I'll paint the kitchen neon, I'll brighten up the sky
Am                          G                              F
   I know I'll never get it, there's not a day that I won't try
G
  And I say to you
 
Chorus:
C         G  
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
F         G
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
Am     G                    F
Ooh-ah, you'll get better soon
G  
    'Cause you have to
 
Bridge:
Dm                   G                C
   And I hate to make this all about me
    G                      Am
But who am I supposed to talk to?
C                     F
What am I supposed to do
Fm
   If there's no you?
 
Verse 3:
C                             G  
  This won't go back to normal, if it ever was
Am                           G                       F
   It's been years of hoping, and I keep saying it because
G
  'Cause I have to
 
Chorus:
C     G  
Ooh-ah, you'll get better
F         G
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
Am     G                    F   G  
Ooh-ah, you'll get better soon


C         G  
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
F         G
Ooh-ah, soon you'll get better
Am     G                  F
Ooh-ah, you'll get better soon
G  
    'Cause you have to

Outro: C  G  Am  G  F

Add a C at the end for a more resolving conclusion

This song makes me cry every time I play it my best friend had cancer a year ago. It’s such a pretty song and every time I hear it it reminds me that he did get better thankfully. I used DD UDU💜💜

Taylor Swift

Hey buddy! I’m so happy you love the song. It was such a hard one to write and record. I’m sending you all my love and I’m so so happy he got better.
-Taylor

This is the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard. This reminds me of my aunt and uncle who have had Cystic Fibrosis since they were born. I am incredibly grateful, because they have lived for this long, but I know one day they will die because of this, and it is very hard. Taylor Swift did an amazing job describing how hard it is, even though she wasn’t talking about CF, I love this song.❤️

Hi! what’s the strumming pattern for this song on uke?

Paige

I love this song, makes me think of my best friend who passed 5 years ago on my 15th birthday from heart disease, he loved Taylor swift as much as i do. Still have the video of him dancing to shake it off at school one day lol! Such a beautiful piece and grateful Taylor was willing to share it with us!

If anyone prefers to fingerpick the song I use CEEA through the verses, CCEA through the chorus and GGCE through the bridge :))
