Intro: Am

Am          G
Little black submarines
D      A
Operator please
Am         G       A
Put me back on the line
Am           G
Told my girl I'd be back
D      A
Operator please
Am       G          A
This is wrecking my mind


Am         G
Oh, can it be
    D              A
The voices calling me
A - B - C         D      A  
They get lost and out of time
  Am                G
I should've seen it glow
    D         A
But everybody knows
       C      D        A
That a broken heart is blind
A - B - C     D        A
That a broken heart is blind


Am          G
Pick you up, let you down
D      A
When I wanna go
Am         G       A
To a place I can hide
Am           G
You know me, I had plans
D      A
But they just disappeared
Am         G       A
To the back of my mind


Am         G
Oh, can it be
    D              A
The voices calling me
A - B - C         D      A  
They get lost and out of time
  Am                G
I should've seen it glow
    D         A
But everybody knows
       C      D        A
That a broken heart is blind
A - B - C     D        A
That a broken heart is blind


Am          G
Treasure maps for a change
D      A
Operator please
Am         G       A
Call me back when it's time
Am           G
Stolen friends and disease
D      A
Operator please
Am       G          A
Pass me back to my mind


Am         G
Oh, can it be
    D              A
The voices calling me
A - B - C         D      A  
They get lost and out of time
  Am                G
I should've seen it glow
    D         A
But everybody knows
       C      D        A
That a broken heart is blind
A - B - C     D        A
That a broken heart is blind
       C      D        A
That a broken heart is blind

  1. I personally like like picking the verses with G E C A pattern and strumming the chorus (strumming pattern DUD UUUD) Such a great song!! For peeps who like the black keys, listen to U2 as well!!

  2. As a tip for beginners having trouble changing between the A-B-C chords, try A-G-C instead, it sounds just as good, imo.

  3. its been forever since i even heard this song, and singing it was really freaky. you know those songs that remind you of your first ever heartbreak? this is that song for me. weird

  4. HappyBirthdayToYou

    The 1st and second verses are not switched BTW, and l personally like G-E-C-A for picking. l just LOVE this song!!! Thank you!!!

  5. It sounds almost exactly like the song. I had to slightly change the timing of the chords though. Other than that it’s great.

  6. The Uke-playing TARDIS

    This is…I don’t know how to describe it…. The best.

  7. if you want to pick the pattern is:
    A:—x———x
    E:——–x—–
    C:——x——-
    G:—x——x—

  8. the 1st and 2nd verses are flipped

  9. LoudMountain98

    this is a perfect version.
