Intro -x2-: Bm A D

Verse 1:
Bm          A        D
 I'm not a stranger to the dark
       G        Bm
Hide away, they say
                  A
'Cause we don't want your broken parts
      Bm                       A   D
I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
 G              Bm
Run away, they say
            A
No one will love you as you are

Pre-Chorus:
   G                            A      Bm
But I won't let them break me down to dust
                         A       D
I know that there's a place for us
              A
For we are glorious

Chorus:
          D
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
           Bm
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
     G
I am brave, I am bruised
      A
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
D
 Look out 'cause here I come
        Bm
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
        G
I'm not scared to be seen
       A
I make no apologies, this is me

Post-Chorus:
 D
Oh-oh-oh-oh -Oh-oh-oh-oh-
 Bm
Oh-oh-oh-oh -Oh-oh-oh-oh-
G                   A
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

Verse 2:
Bm          A        D
Another round of bullets hits my skin
       G        Bm                  A
Well, fire away 'cause today, I won't let the shame sink in
      Bm                       A   D
We are bursting through the barricades
 G              Bm
And reaching for the sun -we are warriors-
            A
Yeah, that's what we'll become

Pre-Chorus:
G               A         Bm
 Won't let them break me down to dust
                         A       D
I know that there's a place for us
              A
For we are glorious

Chorus:
          D
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
           Bm
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
     G
I am brave, I am bruised
      A
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
D
 Look out 'cause here I come
        Bm
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
        G
I'm not scared to be seen
       A
I make no apologies, this is me

Post-Chorus:
D
Oh-oh-oh-oh -Oh-oh-oh-oh-
 Bm
Oh-oh-oh-oh -Oh-oh-oh-oh-
G                   A
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
This is me

Bridge:
D                             Bm
  And I know that I deserve your love
 G                      A
There's nothing I'm not worthy of
          D
When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
           Bm
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
            G
This is brave, this is bruised
            A
This is who I'm meant to be, this is me

Chorus:
D
Look out 'cause here I come -look out 'cause here I come-
             Bm
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum -marching on, marching, marching on-
        G
I'm not scared to be seen
       A
I make no apologies, this is me

  1. uke is life

    strumming pattern?

    • Usually when theres no strumming pattern, what i like to do is listen to the song once and flow with my heart. But what i use is (first chord)d-d-d-u (second chord ) d-u-d-u-d-u (repeat) hipe this helps im not a pro 😅

  2. Lysmonster

    For everyone saying “it’s we are warriors, not we are glorious”, both are in the song. The first time, it should be “we are warriors”. The second time around, it should be “for we are glorious”.

  3. laylamaes2000

    I love this song so much. Now I can play it on the ukulele

  4. -2 . You’re welcomed.

  5. krhawker

    -2

  6. FINALLY! I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!

  7. chicken nugget

    I found that -2 was easiest

  8. -2 is easiest

  9. This is very helpfull! Thank you for this, I’ve really wanted to play one of The Greatest Showman songs, and now I can! My mother doesn’t want to get the movie and I’m hoping that this’ll motivate her to! I am very grateful for this, and I am sure many other are too!

    • I meant others!
      And do you have other The Greatest Showman songs? I would love to play more, although I do have learn a chord,
      (Bm!)

      • I am very sorry for commenting so much, but I believe that the chords just changed. Before they were A, G, F and Bm; but now they have changed to chords I do not know. I may just be mistaken (forgive me if I am) but I am sure that they have changed from A, G, F and Bm toBb, Cm, Eb, and Ab.

      • Bm is easy once u learn it

  10. Nah. It’s definitely ‘warriors’.

  11. This song is really great! Im 12 and I used the song in -2 it was very easy for me to play and still sounded like the original song from the movie. The chords were Am, F, G, and C.

  12. PLEASEHELP

    Don’t worry. It’s ‘We are WARRIORS’

  13. brooklynalxndr

    The easiest version is -2

  14. -7, -2, and +5 are the easiest for me, though -5 might work if you don’t struggle with an E chord like me. Love this song and checked everyday to see if it was uploaded since seeing the movie.
