[Intro]

D7  Dm  C  
D7  Dm  C  G/B


[Verse 1]

Am               C                       Dm
Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
G               G7                  C              Em/B
Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same
Am                    C                             Dm
When our friends talk about you all it does is just tear me down
G                                     C
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name


[Refrain]
   Em                   Am              Em 
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, oooh, oooh
Bb                             C/G  
Mmm too young, too dumb to realize


[Chorus]
     G                      F      G              C
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
                        F    G          C
Shoulda gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  F                   G                Am    
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
D7            F                  Fm                   C     F C   Em/B
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man


[Verse 2]

Am           C                    Dm
My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
G                    G7                     C           Em/B
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
         Am     C                         Dm
Now I'll never, never get to clean up the mess I made ooh
G                                    C
And that haunts me every time I close my eyes


[Refrain]
   Em/B                 Am              Em 
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh, oooh, oooh
Bb                             C/G  
Mmm too young, too dumb to realize


[Chorus]
     G                      F      G              C
That I should've bought you flowers and held your hand
                        F    G          C
Shoulda gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  F                   G                Am    
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
D7            F                  Fm                   C    
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man


[Bridge]

            F                 G                       C G/B Am Em/G
Although it hurts I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
      D7
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
           Dm
To try and apologize for my mistakes
           G
But I just want you to know


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

Thank you :) I absolutely LOVE this song as well!
I did make a few mistakes in the initial tab though... :(

In the Refrain there should be an Em chord just before the Am chord and I also stuffed up the timing of the C and G chords at the end of the Refrain. Should be fixed up once it goes through though, along with some mistakes in the lyrics.

Hope you enjoy :)
Bruno Mars is AMAZING!
