        I just heard their cover on youtube and I thought it was amazing.
 I wasn't able to find any chords to their cover so I just made
 one myself. Well, according to my ears those are the chords
 that he used, though he wasn't strumming, but it is fun to play and BTW 
it's the pitch that I can reach. That's one reason I like 
this cover.It's my first time to submit so take it
 easy on the feedback...or not :D   dont forget to rate! >_<

When I was your man
Boyce Avenue feat. Fifth Harmony (Cover)

Intro:
C  Cm  G  
C  Cm  G  Bm


Verse 1:
Em        G                              Am
Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
D               D7                  G              Bm
Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same
Em                    G                             Am
When our friends talk about you all it does is just tear me down
D                                     G
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name


Refrain:
            Bm          Em              Bm 
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, oooh, oooh
C                             G   
Mmm too young, too dumb to realize


Chorus:
     D                      C      D              G
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
                        C    D          G
Shoulda gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  C                   D                Em    
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
D            C                  Cm                   G                Bm
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man


Verse 2:
Em           G                    Am
My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
D                   D7                     G           Bm
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
         Em     G                         Am
Now I'll never, never get to clean up the mess I made ooh
D                                     G
And that haunts me every time I close my eyes


Refrain:
            Bm          Em              Bm 
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, oooh, oooh
C                             G   
Mmm too young, too dumb to realize


Chorus:
     D                      C      D              G
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
                        C    D          G
Shoulda gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  C                   D                Em    
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
D            C                  Cm                   G                
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man

Bridge:
            C                 D                       G D Em Bm
Although it hurts I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
      Am/C
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
           Cm
To try and apologize for my mistakes
           D
But I just want you to know

Chorus:
                   C      D                      G
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
                 C    D           G
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
                  C             D                     Em    
Take you to every party cause I remember how much you love to dance
D7                  C             Cm               G                
Do all the things I should've done when I was your man
D7                  C             Cm               G
Do all the things I should've done when I was your man

Sounds good. I like A7 to Am7 better for the intro in this key though instead of C. Pretty sure you're right as far as how Boyce Avenue does it, hard to tell cuz he only uses like 2 strings

I want to post or [tab]
