This song was tabbed from the acoustic version of 3 am, but you can probably
also use this for the regular version because their very similar.

h= hammer on

This song uses these 3 chords:  G, Cadd9, D

     
Intro--


   G x 4      Cadd9              G x 4      Cadd9

Here are the lyrics for the song:

Intro

Verse#1

She say it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat 
She's always worried about things like that 
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault 

Bridge
And she only sleeps when it's raining 
And she screams and her voice is straining 

Chorus
She says baby 
It's 3 am I must be lonely 
When she says baby 
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes 
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it 

Verse#2
She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing 
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all 
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to 

Bridge
And she only sleeps when it's raining 
And she screams and her voice is straining 

Chorus

Verse#3
She believes that life is made up of all that you're used to 
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days 
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway 
But outside it's stopped raining
