     C                C
Welllll, she was standing in the bar
     F              F
I said, "Hello, how do you do?"
    G           F                  C  C
She handed me a beer with a kangaroo


     C              C            F
She spoke of places I had never been
              F
That she had traveled to
    G                F                  C   C
And we slowed danced along to faster tunes


  C                                C                          F
I made her laugh, I made a pass, I showed her my half dollar ring
                          F
She said, "That's pretty cool,
    G                   F                  C    C
But classy girls don't kiss in bars, you fool"


Interlude: C C F F G F C

   C            C
So later on the crowd calmed down
    F            F
And I believe it was as if
  G                F              C   C
Something drew me closer to her lips


   C            C                 F                F
So picture my surprise when I had tried to lean in for a kiss
    G                   F                    C   C
And she just smiled and turned her head down


   C
I asked her, "Why?" and she replied,
 C                          F                        F
"It was nothing I was doing wrong, its just what it is"
      G                  F                C   C
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars like this


    F                  G
No, classy girls don't kiss in bars
    F                  G
Boys will break their backs and hearts
    F                 G                  C F  G  G 
But its alright, the hardest part is through


               C F  G  G
Oh it's through
               C F  G  G
Oh it's through
               C F  G  G
Oh it's through
                      C
The hardest part is through.

  1. I prefer using x037 (C) / x558 (F) / x77(10) (G) for the riff. It sounds more like the song

  2. an easier (imo) plucking pattern is if you use the same strings as the moon song (2324323) with 0007 for c, 0058 for f, and 007(10)

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
