I watched the Andy Grammer tutorial on Youtube
to learn how to play this song!
And he's the one that teaches it in the video
So I KNOW it's right! [=
                       Enjoy!

Artist: Andy Grammer
Song: Keep Your Head Up

Intro x1/Verses/Chorus/Bridge: Dm C Am G
Pre-chorus: Em F G

Verse 1:
Dm                        C
 I've been waiting on the sunset
             Am
Bills on my mindset
          G                  Dm
I can't deny they're getting high
                 C
Higher than my income
            Am
My income's breadcrumbs
          G            Dm      
I've been trying to survive
                  C
The glow that the sun gives
             Am
Right around sunset
G            Dm
Helps me realize
               C
This is just a journey
          Am
Drop your worries
G                     Em
You're gonna turn out fine.

Pre-chorus:
F                    G
Oh, you'll turn out fine.
Em    F                    G
Fine, oh, you'll turn out fine.

Chorus:
                        Dm       C
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
                    Dm       C
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
            Dm              C
I know it's hard, know it's hard,
     Am          C
To remember sometimes,
                        Dm       C
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.

Verse 2 (Same progression as Verse 1.):
Dm                       C
 I've got my hands in my pockets,
              Am
Kickin' these rocks.
           G                          Dm
It's kinda hard to watch this life go by.
                C  
I'm buyin' into skeptics,
         Am
Skeptics mess with,
    G                Dm
The confidence in my eyes.
                   C
I'm seeing all the angles,
              Am
Starts to get tangled
  G               Dm
I start to compromise
                C
My life and the purpose.
          Am
Is it all worth it?
G                   Em
Am I gonna turn out fine?

Pre-chorus:
F                   G
Oh, you'll turn out fine.
Em    F                   G
Fine, oh, you'll turn out fine.

Chorus:
                        Dm       C
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
                    Dm       C
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
            Dm              C
I know it's hard, know it's hard,
     Am          C
To remember sometimes,
                        Dm       C
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.


Bridge:
Dm           C
Only rainbows after rain,
    Am             G
The sun will always come again.
Dm           C
It's a circle, circling,
 Am                     G
Around again, it comes around again.
      Dm           C
I say only rainbows after rain,
    Am             G
The sun will always come again.
Dm           C
It's a circle, circling,
 Am                     G
Around again, it comes around

Chorus:
                        Dm       C
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
                    Dm       C
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
            Dm              C
I know it's hard, know it's hard,
     Am          C
To remember sometimes,
                        Dm       C
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.

                    Dm       C
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
                    Dm       C
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.
                    Dm       C
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
                     Am         G
And you can let your hair down, eh.

Dm C
              Am             G
I said "Ooooh know know know know!"

Good tab EXCEPT.....
In the video tutorial, Andy Grammer states that in the Dm chord he doesn't play the D note (3rd fret) on the B string. Instead, he plays a C note (1st fret) on the B string, making this chord a Dm.
