Right so I've looked for the chords to this song everywhere and there always seems 
to be something wrong with them, so I'm going to submit my own, I guess.

If there's anything wrong please e-mail: naturada137@gmail.com 

On the Brightside by Nevershoutnever 

This is an easy little song with only two phrases even used, so if you're looking 
for something really easy and nice to pick up, here you go. Finger-picking here is 
simple; just alternate between thumb for bass and fingers for the rest of the 
chord. It's straight eighth notes, so you can't go wrong. Most chord changes are 
on 1 or 3 of a bar so it's very straightforward. 

EDIT: The chords showed when you hover over their names are all 1 fret up because 
of the displayed tuning, so just play how I have them below if you want to be in 
tune with the song. I just thought that might cause mild confusion. 

Or don't. I mean, whatever you wanna do, you know? Heh.

(I usually use barre over open chords, but it's your choice) 

Verse 1: 
Am                     E           C7
 I met a man of two feet tall, this man was quite ambitious
     F                Fm  
In a world that is so vicious to us all 
Am         E            C7                              
  I said hi, as he replied 
                        F                 G    
He said listen to these words that I have lived by my whole life 

Chorus: 
C                     Am
  You're only as tall,   as your heart will let you be
F                          G 
  And you're only as small,  as the world will make you seem
C                          Am
  When the going gets rough, and you feel like you may fall
F                              G
  Just look on the bright side, you're roughly six feet tall  
Am (for 1 & 1/2 measures, then cut out) 

Verse 2:
Am                         E         C7
 I met a man of twelve feet tall, he towered like a giant
     F              Fm
In a world that was defiant of his height 
Am         E            C7                              
  I said hi, as he replied 
                        F                 G
He said listen to these words that I have dreaded my whole life 

Chorus: 
C                     Am
  You're only as tall,   as your heart will let you be
F                          G 
  And you're only as small,  as the world will make you seem
C                          Am
  When the going gets rough, and you feel like you may fall
F                              G
  Just look on the bright side, you're roughly six feet tall  
Am (1 & 1/2 bars and cut out) 

Verse 3: 
Am                     E            C7
 I am a man of six feet tall,  just looking for some answers
     F                  Fm   
In a world that answers none of them at all 
Am          E               C7
  I'll say hi, but not reply
                        F                  G
To the letters that you write because I've found some peace of mind 


Chorus: 
C                        Am
  Cause I'm only as tall,   as my heart will let me be
F                        G 
  And I'm only as small,  as the world will make me seem
C                               Am
  And when the going gets rough, and I feel like I may fall
F                              G                     C    
  I'll look on the bright side, I'm roughly six feet tall
