[Intro]

C F Am G


[Verse 1]

              C          F
You don't have to be so scared
              Am         G
You don't have to go tonight
           C            F     
I just need to hold on tight
                   Am          G
For one hell of a ride
           C              F
And we lost it all just now
             Am               G
To the nights that left you out
            C         F
So we'll let this go somehow
                      Am      G
But you're gonna be proud     so proud


[Chorus]

                     C
And I just needed you to pick me up
          F
Like you did when we were younger
          Am
When the lightning and the thunder
        G
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
C
To lift me up
          F
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
       Am
You'll forever be my father
            G
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one


[Instrumental]

C F Am G


[Verse 2]

        C               F
How can I fit all these words
     Am            G
Into such a simple verse
         C                    F
It's the last time that we'll speak
             C  G
So listen to me please


[Chorus]

                   C
And I just needed you to pick me up
          F
Like you did when we were younger
          Am
When the lightning and the thunder
        G
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
C
To lift me up
          F
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
       Am
You'll forever be my father
            G
I'll be saving tears in jars for this one


[Instrumental]

C F Am G


[Chorus]

                  C                 F          Am      G  
And I just needed you to pick me up Whoa oh oh oh oh oh   (2x)
                   C
And I just needed you to pick me up
          F
Like you did when we were younger
          Am
When the lightning and the thunder
        G
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
C
To lift me up
          F
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
       Am
You'll forever be my father
            G
I'll be saving tears in jars for this one


[Verse 3]

        C                   F
Did you know that you're my heart
                Am       G
And it hurts to be apart
         C               F
And this cut it hurts so deep 
              Am      G      C
So sing me to sleep

I always used to play the intro like this:

D-15--4x-16--4x-15--4x-13--4x
A--16-----16-----16-----16---

Yours is a lot easier, though same pattern.
Anyway, thanks for the tab, I love this song.

lyrics are not 'You don't have to leave tonight'
its 'You don't have to GO tonight' ;)
