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

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

Interlude: Ab        Ab     Fm     Eb

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

Chorus:
Ab
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
Eb
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over town
Fm
I'm swearing if i go there now
Db
I can change your mind turn it all around

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’

Definitely not a hornet

Does anyone know the strum pattern..?

So is -2

hardlyreal

+5 is easy
