Intro: Ab Db Fm F x2

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

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


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

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


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


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


Db      Fm
 Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa 
Db                 Ab
 Try and catch me now 
  Db Fm
 Oh, it's too late 
Db            Ab
 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
