G  Bm7

G                                                 Bm7
Okay I can see it now its all the same thing
Just different wrapping around it
No need to soften your words, 
             C                           Cm
theyre still gonna hurt, So dont pull punches

G                                                                  Bm7
I tried to be everything youd ever want and sometimes
I even stood on my heart and stomped
Now Im finally alone 
         C                                     Cm
And dressed for the show, but going nowhere

Em                                      Cm
They dont need to see me crying

Ill get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
C                                                  Cm
Im gonna dance until youre all gone
Ill get my little black dress on

You came lifted me up but then you dropped a hurricane
Now Im fighting to find the ground again, to steady my feet
Get up off my knees and just remember
That I am more than just somebodys puppet 
I can find the cord and then Ill cut it
I stand a pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance

(no prechorus)

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

I?ll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I?m gonna dance until you?re all gone
I?ll get my little black dress on
I got my little black dress on
And if I tell myself that nothing?s wrong
This doesn?t have to be a sad song
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.
