How To Play

Capo: 2nd fret

Intro:  G  D4/F#  Em7  Cadd9  x2
 
G
I had to catch my breath
D4/F#                 Em7
When I saw you there across the room
Cadd9
Holding her hand
G
I’d have never guessed
D4/F#                            Em7
That starting over would look so good on you
Cadd9
But here I am
D                            Em7
Still believing there might come a day
D                          Cadd9
We’ll pick up where we left off
 
           G
And by the way
              D4/F#
Your eyes are dancing
             Em7
I’ll say the chances of that 
            Cadd9
Are getting slim
           G
And by the way
                D4/F#
My hearts still breaking
           Em7
It’s going take me a while
        Cadd9
To love again
   Em7          D4/F#         Cadd9
So many things that I forgot to say
      D4/F#
By the way
 
G
I should’ve let you know
D4/F#                      Em7
All the way’s you made me feel alive
Cadd9
I guess it’s too late
G
So I’ll just get my coat
D4/F#                      Em7
And make my way into this breezy night
Cadd9
Give you one last wave
D                              Em7
Maybe you’ll drop what you’re doing
D
And come over here and say 
    Cadd9
I’m looking good
 
           G
And by the way
              D4/F#
Your eyes are dancing
              Em7
I’ll say the chances of that 
            Cadd9
Are getting slim
           G
And by the way
                 D4/F#
My hearts still breaking
           Em7
It’s going take me a while
        Cadd9
To love again
   Em7         D4/F#     Cadd9
So many things that I forgot to say
 
       G
By the way
               D4/F#
You still look amazing
                     Em7
And I must have been crazy
               Cadd9
To let you get away
 
       G
By the way
             D4/F#
If you ever wondered
                 Em7
I still got the same old number
        Cadd9
Just in case
         Em7
I still miss you
            D4/F#
And I still love you
       G    D4/F#  Em7  Cadd9
By the way
       G    D4/F#  Em7  Cadd9  G (strum down once)
By the way oh
