She said baby don't leave
Be home stay close be close to me
Boy don’t be gone, boy
Don’t be gone

He said baby you know
I gotta run, I gotta go
I won't be long, girl
I won't be long

She said boy don't you flirt
And baby please just don't get hurt
And if you feel alone then here
Take my shirt

He said forever girl
I know you hate the weather girl
So maybe you should hold onto
My sweater girl

She ran picked up the phone
Said babe I miss you come back home
It can't be long, boy
It can't be long

He said I hate this place
I miss your smile I miss your face
I wrote a song, girl
I wrote a song

She said you make me better boy
I just mailed you a letter boy
And oh just so you know I'm still in
Your sweater boy

He said girl don't be hurt
I've sweat a lot and smell of dirt
And I think I'd feel naked
Without your shirt

there's really no need for drop d. why not put all of this on a half step down guitar man, holding the E chord the whole time?

this is how he played it live, but yes, that would work too

There's no way the tuning is D G# C#...whatever. Hedley tunes down half a step on a lot of their songs, and if you do that (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb), then the chords for the Sweater Song are simply E and A.
