[Intro]
G  Bm7

[Verse]
G                                  Bm7
Okay I can see it now it's all the same thing
Bm7
Just different wrapping around it
F
No need to soften your words
         C                    Cm
They're still gonna hurt, So don't pull punches

G                                             Bm7
I tried to be everything you'd ever want and sometimes
Bm7
I even stood on my heart and stomped
F       
Now I'm finally alone 
     C                         Cm           Em
And dressed for the show, but going nowhere


[Pre-Chorus]
Em                  C      Cm    G
They don't need to see me crying


[Chorus]
G                                Bm7
I'll get my little black dress on
Bm7                             C
And if I put on my favorite song
C                                 Cm
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone
                                 G
I'll get my little black dress on


[Verse]
G                                               Bm7
You came, lifted me up, but then you dropped a hurricane
Bm7                           F
Now I'm fighting to find the ground again
F
To steady my feet
    C                    Cm
Get up off my knees and just remember

     G
That I am more than just somebody's puppet
Bm7
I can find the cord and then I'll cut it
F                                C                   Cm
I stand a pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance


[Chorus]
G                                Bm7
I'll get my little black dress on
Bm7                             C
And if I put on my favorite song
C                                 Cm
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone
                                 G
I'll get my little black dress on

G                              Bm7
I got my little black dress on
Bm7                                  C
And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong
C                               Cm
This doesn't have to be a sad song
Cm                                Em
Not with my little black dress on


[Bridge]
Em                         C                                G
It's time to connect the dots and draw a different picture up
                             D                       Em
And paint it with the colors of everything I ever was
Em                            C                            G
Return to the scene of the crime, the day I let the music die
                       D                       G
And rewrite the final lines cause this time I


[Chorus]
G                                Bm7
I'll get my little black dress on
Bm7                             C
And if I put on my favorite song
C                                 Cm
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone
                                 G
I'll get my little black dress on

G                              Bm7
I got my little black dress on
Bm7                                  C
And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong
C                               Cm
This doesn't have to be a sad song
Cm                                G    Bm7
Not with my little black dress on

Great tab, these chords sound very accurate. One little correction, at the prechorus, I think a Cm sounds more accurate when she sings "Crying". But other than that, this sounds awesome.

Switch the G and the C in the bridge. Otherwise it's good.
