Intro: G

Verse:
G                                                 D
You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset
                                         Am
She's going off about something that you said 
                                       C
'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do
G                                       D
I'm in the room it's a typical Tuesday night 
                                                Am
I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like 
                                      C
And she'll never know your story like I do 

Pre-Chorus:
    Am                      C
But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts 
G                       D
She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers 
Am                              C
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
                D
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time 

Chorus:
             G
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you 
D                                     Am
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
                C                   G
You belong with me, you belong with me

Verse:
G                                               D
Walkin' the streets with you and your worn out jeans 
                                              Am
I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be 
                                        C
Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself 
Hey isn't this easy 

Verse:
    G                                                 D
And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town
                                                   Am
I haven't seen it in a while since she brought you down 
You say you're fine, I know you better then that 
C
Hey whatcha doing with a girl like that 

Pre-Chorus:
Am                    C
She wears high heels, I wear sneakers 
G                      D
Shes cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers 
Am                     C
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
                D 
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time 

Chorus:
             G
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you 
D                                     Am
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
                C
You belong with me
G
Standing by and waiting at your back door 
D                                        Am
All this time how could you not know, baby 
                C
You belong with me, you belong with me 

Interlude: G D Am C

Bridge:
                  Am
Oh I remember you drivin' to my house
       C
In the middle of the night 
        G
I'm the one who makes you laugh 
         D
When you know you're about to cry 
      Am
And I know your favorite songs 
        C
And you tell me about your dreams 
        G
Think I know where you belong 
        D
Think I know it's with me

Verse:
          G
Can't you see that I'm the one who understands you 
D                                     Am
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
                C
You belong with me
G
Standing by and waiting at your back door 
D                                        Am
All this time how could you not know, baby 
                C                   G
You belong with me, you belong with me 
                D
You belong with me 
                              Am
Have you ever thought just maybe
                C                   G
You belong with me, you belong with me
