Intro - C Then C, Bm, Am, G, F, G, C

C                          Bm              Am          
Prove to me I'm not gonna die alone.
                G                          F               
Put your arm around my collarbone
                         C              G
And open the door.

Don't lie to me
                Bm               Am
If you're putting the dog to sleep.
         G            F                                         C             G
That pet you just couldn't keep, and couldn't afford.


         C                          Bm              Am     
Well prove to me I'm not gonna die alone.
G          F                              C                                             G
Unstitch that (shit?) I've sewn to close up the hole that tore through my skin.
               C                           Bm             Am
Well my trust in you is a dog with a broken leg... 
G           F                                                     C                 G
Tendons too torn to beg for you to let me back in. 

                            C                                 Bm              Am         
You said I can't prove to you you're not gonna die alone.
       G             F                                           C                      G
But trust me to take you home to clean up that blood all over your palms.
                            C                   Bm                 Am
You can't keep running out kicking yourself off the bed.
G             F                                                      C               G
Kicking yourself in the head. Because you're kicking me too.

                F                  Am                      C                               
Put your trust in me, I'm not gonna die alone(2x)
I don't think so.
                F                 Am                       C 
Put your trust in me, I'm not gonna die alone(2x) 
I don't think so.

Outro - F, Am, C, G (repeated)

If the chord changes matched the words it would be perfect

i usually replace Bm with 320001 and then go onto C/G instead of G.

I now play the verse as: C, C/B, Am, Am/G, F. And the final "put your trust in me" I have the F as an Fmaj7.
