Verse:
A
In many ways
        Bm   
They'll miss the good old days
D        A
Someday, someday


A     
Yeah, it hurts to say
    Bm    
But I want you to stay
D          A
Sometimes, sometimes


A
When we was young
    Bm
Oh, man, did we have fun
D        A
Always, always


A  
Promises
     Bm      
They break before they're made
D          A
Sometimes, sometimes

Chorus:
    A              E           Gbm
Oh, my ex says I'm lacking in depth
D            A
I will do my best
    A              E           Gbm
You say you want to stay by my side
D                        A
Darling, your head's not right
      A              E           Gbm
I see alone we stand, together we fall apart
      D                 A 
Yeah, I think I'll be alright
    A              E           Gbm
I'm working so I won't have to try so hard
D                    A
Tables they turn sometimes
        E
Oh, someday
                            A
Now I ain't wasting no more time


Verse -same as first-:
And now my fears
They come to me in threes
So I  sometimes

Say faith my friend
You say the strangest things
I find sometimes

Chorus:
    A              E           Gbm
Oh, my ex says I'm lacking in depth
D            A
I will do my best
    A              E           Gbm
You say you want to stay by my side
D                        A
Darling, your head's not right
      A              E           Gbm
I see alone we stand, together we fall apart
      D                 A 
Yeah, I think I'll be alright
    A              E           Gbm
I'm working so I won't have to try so hard
D                    A
Tables they turn sometimes
        E
Oh, someday
                            A
Now I ain't wasting no more time

In case anyone is wondering, I think this is the intro.

2—4——6—4——6—4——4—2
2—2——4—4——4—4——2—2
2—2——4—4——4—4——2—2
x—x——x—x——-x—x——x—x

If anyone has a better way to play it, though, then please let me know :D

You’ll find it muuuuuch easier and nicer to play this way:

A|-0–1—-4–2—-4–2—-1–0-
E|-0–0—-2–2—-2–2—-0–0-
C|-1–1—-2–2—-2–2—-1–1-
G|-2–2—-2–2—-2–2—-2–2-
………..*..*….*..*………
It sounds best if you just strum down with your thumb at the base of the neck to give it a good mellow sound. Also when doing the strums with the stars below them its best to bar the strings with your index finger.

Really hope this helps!

Jack

For the second one : instead of 2101, i’d say 2102
same at the end
