                     TEARDROPS ON MY GUITAR - Taylor Swift
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Krista

Tuning: Capo On 3rd

So... I'm 99% sure about everything except the chorus.
You can't really hear the acoustic guitar during that part,
so I kind of had to guess, except the last part which can be heard.
And I don't normally write out tabs, usually I do chords,
so any questions / comments /(constructive) criticism is welcome.

[Verse 1]
Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't see
That I want and I'm needing everything that we should be
I'll bet she's beautiful, that girl he talks about
And she's got everything that I have to live without

[Verse 2]
Drew talks to me, I laugh cause it's so damn funny
That I can't even see anyone when he's with me
He says he's so in love, he's finally got it right,
I wonder if he knows he's all I think about at night

[Chorus]
He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

[Verse 3]
Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can't breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly,
The kind of flawless I wish I could be
She'd better hold him tight, give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes and know she's lucky cause

[Chorus]
He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge]
So I drive home alone, as I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down and maybe
Get some sleep tonight

[2nd Chorus]
He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do
He's the time taken up, but there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into

[Outro]
Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't see
