Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
My first tab, listen to the music it plays along to the record of Jake Coco
It is best with Acoustic Guitar.
Strum the verse chords once and play with the chord gently.


By Ben Olney.


(Verse 1)
A 
Summer after high school when we first met

E
We made out in your Mustang to Radio head

    F#m                                  D
And on my 18th birthday we got matching tattoos

         A
Used to steal your parents' liquor and climb to the roof

E
Talk about our future like we had a clue

F#m                                      D
Never planned that one day I'd be losing you


(Chorus)

               A                    E
And in another life you would be my girl

                  F#m                         D
We'd keep all our promises, be us against the world

               A                     E
And in another life I would make you stay
                    
                   F#m                           D
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away

                   A
The one that got away



(Verse 2)
(Play chords muted along to beat)

A
You were June and I was Johnny Cash

E
Never one, without the other, we made a pact

F#m                                            D
Sometimes when I miss you, I put those records on, whoa

A 
Someone said that you had your tattoo removed

E
They said they saw you downtown just singing the blues

F#m                                          D
It's time to face the music, I'm longer your muse



(Chorus) (unmuted normal strum) 

               A                    E
And in another life you would be my girl

                  F#m                         D
We'd keep all our promises, be us against the world
              
             A                     E
And in other life I would make you stay

                   F#m                           D
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away

                 A              
The one that got away



A                    E

Whoa whoa whoa whoa


                     F#m
Whoa whoa whoa whoa


                     D
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

                     F#m
The one that got away



(continue F#m)                   A    D        F#m
And all this money cant buy me a time machine, No
                        A       D      F#m
Cant replace you with a million rings, no
                                A        D   F#m
I should have told you what you meant to me, whoa

                    E                   
Cause now I pay the price



(Chorus as before)
