Verse:
GbGb chord
I can't take them on my own, my own
Oh, I'm not the one you know, you know
I have killed a man and all I know
Is I am on the run and go.

Chorus:
                             BB chord
Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
                             GbGb chord

    Lyrics for people who love this song but cant play it well:

    I can’t play this my own, my own
    These are not the chords I know, I know
    I have killed my ears and all I know
    Is I am on the run and go

    Don’t want to call you in the nighttime
    Don’t want to give you all my pieces
    Don’t want to hand you all my troubles
    Don’t want to give you all my demons
    You’ll have to watch me struggle
    Play this ukulele song
    Cause I’m getting all the chords wrong

  7. JoshDunIsBae

    LOVE this song! I’m just confused about the key change, it doesn’t sound right when I’m singing as well as playing…

  8. The ACTUAL lyrics:

    I can’t do it on my own, my own,
    Pa, I’m not the one you know, you know
    I have killed a man and all, I know,
    Is I, am on the run and go-

    And then:

    I am up against the wall, the wall,
    Pa, I hear them coming down, the hall
    I have killed a man and all, I know
    Is I, am on the run and go

  9. imnotgoodatthis

  10. where it says nights, from, cerebral, and one-way in one of the verses, try changing the Eb to a D.

  11. thenamesizzy_

    THIS IS GORGEOUS :)

  12. Caitlyn O'loughlin

    That isn’t much betterwhen it comes to, “cold nights. . . “

  13. michelleyas

    For an easier version try -1 with capo on 1 to stay in the same key :)

  14. pencilislost246

    transpose +1 for easier version
