Intro: Db Gb Bbm F x2

Db
 Say you're sorry 
       Gb
 That face of an angel
       Bbm                          Gb 
 Comes out just when you need it to 
Db                     Gb
 As I paced back and forth all this time 
           Bbm                 Gb
 'Cause I honestly believed in you 
 Bbm
 Holding on 
      Gb
 The days drag on 
         Ab
 Stupid girl, 
                                    Ab
 I should have known, I should have known 

 
                 Db                        Bbm
That I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale 
            Gb
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
 Ab
Lead her up the stairwell 
           Db                     Bbm
This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town
          Gb                         Ab
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down 
         Bbm            Ab
Now it's too late for you 
           Gb                    Db - Db -
And your white horse, to come around 


Db
 Maybe I was naive,
Gb
 Got lost in your eyes 
     Bbm                       Gb
 And never really had a chance 
Db                    Gb     
 My mistake I didn't know to be in love 
            Bbm                          Gb
 You had to fight to have the upper hand 
       Bbm
 I had so many dreams 
       Gb
 About you and me 
       Ab
 Happy endings, now I know 

 
                 Db                        Bbm
That I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale 
            Gb
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
 Ab
Lead her up the stairwell 
           Db                     Bbm
This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town
          Gb                         Ab
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down 
         Bbm            Ab
Now it's too late for you 
           Gb                    Db    Bbm Gb Ab
And your white horse, to come around 


Bbm             Ab          Gb
 And there you are on your knees
Db               Ab        Gb
 Begging for forgiveness, begging for me 
Db            Ab            Gb           B
 Just like I always wanted but I'm so sorry 


                      Db                        Bbm
'Cause I'm not your princess, this ain't a fairytale 
           Gb                             Ab
I'm gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well 
          Db                       Bbm
This is a big world, that was a small town 
            Gb                    Ab
There in my rearview mirror disappearing now 
         Bbm           Ab              Gb
And it's too late for you and your white horse 
         Bbm           Ab              Gb                     Db   
Now it's too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now 


Gb      Bbm
 Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa 
Gb                 Db
 Try and catch me now 
  Gb Bbm
 Oh, it's too late 
Gb            Db
 To catch me now

  1. UkulelePlayingSquid

    Strumming pattern I use: DD U DD U D U
    During quick transitions I only use: DD U (1st chord in transition) —> DD U D (2nd chord in transition)
    (I hope this makes sense or helps anyone)

  2. A good strum would be D-mute-U-D-mute

  3. Strumming pattern??

  4. CharPlaysUkulele?

    1st finger: 2nd Finger: 3rd finger: 4th finger:
    3rd Fret 2nd Fret 1st Fret 1st Fret

    I hope that helps!

  5. Easy, sounds good, in my vocal range, what’s not to hate?

  6. This sounds really nice if you strum in thirds.

  7. this sounds really nice if you strum in thirds. 3 notes for each chord, except at the ones you only play once.

  8. Sabrina Kedra

    I love this song so much

  9. This song is fun but I am confused on why the Bb chord sounds strange

  10. VanillaGalaxies

    your first finger covers the bottom two strings first fret, your middle finger on the third string second fret, and your fourth finger on the forth string third fret

    kinda looks like this

    l x l l
    l x l l
    l — l x l
    l — l — l x

    @Kaka
