                             Don't - Ed Sheeran
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: ConorGAL

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

Here is the performance go to 16:33: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lR3vIjAZDnM
While the other versions are tabbed from Ed's performance on SNL with a band, this is Ed 
playing without a
band in concert in Vicar Street, Dublin. However the other tabs are fine just for 
whatever reason Ed plays
it half a step higher in this performance, this tab is if you want to play along with 
the video.

[Verse 1]

F#m            C#m
I met this girl late last year she said
D                   E
Don't you worry if I disappear I told her
F#m                         C#m
I'm not really looking for another mistake
D                                    E
I called an old friend thinking that the trouble would wait but then
F#m                       C#m
I jumped right in a week later returned
D                                E
I reckon she was only looking for a lover to burn
F#m                        C#m
But I gave her my time, for two or three nights
D                            E
Then I put it on pause until the moment was right
F#m              C#m
I went away for months
D                       E
Until our paths crossed again, she told me
F#m                       C#m
I was never looking for a friend
D                               E
Maybe you can swing by my room around ten
F#m                         C#m
Baby bring the lemon and a bottle of gin
D                                  E
We'll be inbetween the sheets till' the late AM
F#m                                              C#m
Baby if you wanted me then you should have just said
D
She's singing...


[Hook]

E                  F#m
Don't fuck with my Love
         C#m     D
That heart is so cold
E           F#m
All over my home
              C#m           D
I don't wanna know that thing
E                  F#m
Don't fuck with my love
       C#m      D
I told her, she knows
     E       F#m
Take aim and reload
              C#m           D      E
I don't wanna know that thing


[Verse 2]

F#m                      C#m
For a couple of weeks I only want to see her
D                                 E
We drink away the days with a take away pizza
F#m                            C#m
Before a text message was the only way to reach her
D                                              E
Now she's staying at my place and loves the way I treat her
F#m                          C#m
Singing out Aretha, all over the track like a feature
D                                               E
And never wants to sleep I guess that I dont want to either
F#m                     C#m
But me and her we make money the same way
D                E
Four cities, two planes the same day
F#m                             C#m
And those shows have never been what its about
D                               E
Maybe we'll go together and just figure it out
F#m                                   C#m
I'd rather put on a film with you and sit on the couch
D                                         E
But we should get on the plane or we'll be missing it now
F#m                                         C#m
Wish I'd have written it down, the way that things played out
D                           E
When she was kissing him how I was confused about
F#m                       C#m                     D
She should figure it out why I'm sat here singing...


[Hook]

E                  F#m
Don't fuck with my Love
         C#m     D
That heart is so cold
E           F#m
All over my home
              C#m           D
I don't wanna know that thing
E                  F#m
Don't fuck with my love
       C#m      D
I told her, she knows
     E       F#m
Take aim and reload
              C#m           D      E
I don't wanna know that thing


[Verse 3]

(Knock knock knock)
F#m         C#m
     On my hotel door
D                       E
I don't even know if she knows what for
F#m                           C#m
She was crying on my shoulder I already told you
D                           E
Trust and respect is what we do this for
F#m                    C#m
I never intended to be next
D                                     E
But you didn't need to to take him to bed, thats all
F#m                       C#m
And I never saw him as a threat
D                                      E
Until you disappeared with him to have sex of course
F#m                           C#m
Its not like we were both on tour
D                                  E
We were staying on the same fucking hotel floor
F#m                                 C#m
And I wasn't looking for a promise or commitment
D                              E
But it was never just fun and I thought you were different
F#m                     C#m
This is not the way you realise what you wanted
D                                  E
It's a bit too much too late if I'm honest
F#m                C#m                 D
All this time god knows I'm singing...


[Hook]

E                  F#m

All over my home

I don't wanna know that thing

Don't fuck with my love

All over my home

              C#m           D      E
I don't wanna know that thing

in the opening riff, the first 2 notes are two 8th frets rather than two 9th frets
