[Verse 1]

     Dm                                F
We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
     C                                Bb
We jumped, never asking why
     Dm                F
We kissed, I fell under your spell
C                             Bb
A love no one could deny


[Pre-chorus]

Bb                         Dm                         
Don’t you ever say I just walked away
F                 Bb    
I will always want you
Bb                    Dm
I can’t live a lie, running for my life
F                 Bb
I will always want you


[Chorus]

                        F                  C               
I came in like a wrecking ball
                    Dm            Bb
I never hit so hard in love
                              F                      C
All I wanted was to break your walls
                               Dm      Bb
All you ever did was break me
             Dm           Bb
Yeah, you wreck me


[Verse]

  Dm                    F
I put you high up in the sky
        C                                  Bb
And now, you’re not coming down
   Dm                        F
It slowly turned, you let me burn
       C                                   Bb
And now, we’re ashes on the ground


[Pre-chorus]

Bb                         Dm                         
Don’t you ever say I just walked away
F                 Bb    
I will always want you
Bb                    Dm
I can’t live a lie, running for my life
F                 Bb
I will always want you


[Chorus]

                       F                  C               
I came in like a wrecking ball
                    Dm            Bb
I never hit so hard in love
                              F                      C
All I wanted was to break your walls
                               Dm      Bb
All you ever did was break me
                       F                  C  
I came in like a wrecking ball
                                 Dm                  Bb
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
                                   F                   C
Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
                               Dm      Bb
All you ever did was break me
             Dm           Bb
Yeah, you wreck me


[Bridge]

                                    Dm   
I never meant to start a war
                                         F
I just wanted you to let me in
                                C     
And instead of using force
                                      Bb
I guess I should’ve let you win
                                    Dm   
I never meant to start a war
                                         F
I just wanted you to let me in
                                       C
I guess I should’ve let you win

(this part is a cappella but here are the chords anyway)

Bb                         Dm                         
Don’t you ever say I just walked away
F                 Bb    
I will always want you


[Chorus]

                       F                  C               
I came in like a wrecking ball
                    Dm            Bb
I never hit so hard in love
                              F                      C
All I wanted was to break your walls
                               Dm      Bb
All you ever did was break me
                       F                  C  
I came in like a wrecking ball
                                 Dm                  Bb
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
                                   F                   C
Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
                               Dm      Bb
All you ever did was break me
             Dm           Bb
Yeah, you wreck me

These are the actual chords, I played my piano along with the song and verified that they were right, something just happened somehow so now where the chords are placed is not at the right spot but THOSE ARE THE CHORDS.

Thanks for your work on this - I'm not a super great guitarist so I transposed it up two steps for ease and added the capo on the third fret because I "think" that gets me to something close to the more "country-ish" version of this song that The Gregory Brothers have done on YouTube and your chord progressions were pretty spot-on for that version that I most wanted to play anyway so thanks!

Thank you chrissy. I hear a few things slightly different

Whole Song in Dm, so A#=Bb

Verse
Chords are Dm - F/C - C/E - Gm (sounds quite like a Bb, but not exactly)

Bridge "I never meant to start......"
Chords are Dm - Dm - F - F - A - A - Bb - Bb - Dm - Dm - F - F - Asus4 - A
