[Intro]

C


[Verse 1] (pm)

C                  
Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago
Gsus4
I was in your sights, you got me alone
Am                              Fmaj7
You found me, you found me, you found me-e
C
I guess you didn't care, and I guess liked that
    Gsus4
And when I fell hard, you took a step back
    Am                      Fmaj7      C
Without me, without me, without me-e


[Pre-Chorus] (pm)

              Gsus4                   Am
And he's long gone, when he's next to me and I 
       Fmaj7                   
Realize, the blame is on me


[Chorus 1] (one)

       Am              Fmaj7                   Gsus4
'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
       C        C/B   Am
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Fmaj7             Gsus4
Flew me to places I'd never been 
          C      C/B
'Till you put me down, oh


[Chorus 2] (st)

Am              Fmaj7                    Gsus4
I knew you were trouble when you walked in 
       C        C/B    Am
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Fmaj7               Gsus4
Flew me to places I'd never been
        C (stop)                 Am
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!


[Post-Chorus] (st)

Am  Fmaj7 Gsus4         C        C/B    Am 
Ahh  oh   oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Am  Fmaj  Gsus4         C        C/B
Ahh  oh   oh, trouble, trouble, trouble


[Verse 2] (pm)

No apologies, he'll never see you cry
Pretends he doesn't know, that he's the reason why
You're drowning, you're drowning, you're drowning-e-e-e-ing
Now I heard you moved on, the whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt, it's all I'll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see-e-e-e-e


[Pre-Chorus] (pm)

He was long gone, when he met me
And I realize, the joke is on me,  yeah


[Chorus 1] (st)

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been 
'Till you put me down, oh


[Chorus 2] (st)

I knew you were trouble when you walked in 
It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!


[Post-Chorus] (st)

Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble


[Bridge]

          Fmaj7            Am
And the sadest fear, comes creepin' in
         Fmaj7
That you never loved me or her, 
   Gsus4                      (C  C/B)
Or anyone, or anything, yeah yeah 


[Chorus 1] (st)

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been (never been)
'Till you put me down, oh


[Chorus 2] (st)

I knew you were trouble when you walked in (you were right there)
It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!


[Post-Chorus] (st)

Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble


[Chorus 2] (st)

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
trouble, trouble, trouble


END!

Clearly wrong. these are not the right chords, and it doesn't sound right at all to me. there is just something wrong with it.

Nowadays everyone thinks they can play the guitar, but it just isn't for everyone.
