Verse:
D               D
am I better off dead
Bm                A
am I better off a quitter
D                       D
They say I'm better off now
Bm                   A
Than i ever was with her
G                     Bm             A
As they take me to my local down the street
            Gbm      G            Bm             A
I'm smiling but I'm dying trying not to drag my feet
D              D           Bm                A
They say a few drinks will help me to forget her
D                 D      Bm            A
But after one too many I know that I'm never
G             Bm                      A
Only they can see where this is gonna end
             Gbm        G            Bm              A
But they all think I'm crazy but to me it's perfect sense

Chorus:
D
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
A
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over town
Bm
I'm swearing if i go there now
G
I can change your mind turn it all around
D
And I know that I'm drunk but I'll say the words
A
And she'll listen this time even though 
Bm
Dial her number and confess to her 
G
I'm still in love but all i heard was nothing

Interlude: D        D     Bm     A

Verse:
D            D            Bm                   A
So I stumble there, along the railings and the fences
D                     D                Bm          A
I know if I'm face to face that she'll come to her senses 
G                       Bm              A                                   
Every drunk step i take leads me to her door
Gbm                       G
If she sees how much I'm hurting
       Bm               A
She'll take me back for sure

Chorus:
D
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
A
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over town
Bm
I'm swearing if i go there now
G
I can change your mind turn it all around
D
And I know that I'm drunk but I'll say the words
A
And she'll listen this time even though 
Bm
Dial her number and confess to her 
G
I'm still in love but all i heard was nothing

D

A
She said nothing
Bm                                    G
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

         D
Oh I got nothing
Nothing
A
I got nothing
Nothing

Bm                                    G
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

Oh you're coming down your hands are shaking

D               D
am I better off dead

am I better off a quitter

They say I'm better off now

Than I ever was with her

  1. Definitely not a hornet

    Does anyone know the strum pattern..?

  2. So is -2

  3. +5 is easy

  4. UkuleleGirl

    In the verses it’s ‘G, D, Bm, A’, not ‘D, D, Bm, A’ and in the chorus it’s ‘And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred’

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.
