[Verse 1]
N.C.                                D  G  D
Darling, you've got to let me know,
N.C.                                D  G  D
Should I stay or should I go,
N.C.                                G  F  G
If you say that you are mine,
N.C.                                D  G  D
I'll be here 'til the end of time,
N.C.                                A7
So you've got to let me know...
N.C.                                D  G  D
...Should I stay or should I go?


[Verse 2]
N.C.                               D  G  D
It's always tease, tease, tease,
N.C.                               D  G  D
You're happy when I'm on my knees,
N.C.                                    G  F  G
One day it's fine, and next it's black,
N.C.                               D  G  D
So if you want me off your back,
N.C.                               A7
Well, come on, and let me know...
N.C.                               D  G  D
...Should I stay or should I go?


[Verse 3]
N.C.                       D         G  D
Should I stay, or should I go now?
                           D         G  D
Should I stay, or should I go now?
                         G      F  G
If I go there will be trouble,
                            D        G  D
And, if I stay, it will be double,
                         A7
So, come on, and let me know...

First time playing the intro, strum the top three stings muted once after the last D. Then the second time, on the high e, play the 5th fret and hammer on to 8. Then the next to times, just play them normally
