You say you stand DAA
by your man DDAA
Tell me something DAA
I don't understand DAA
 D strum              Bm strum
You said you loved me, and that's a fact 
 
The you left me DAA, 
said you felt trapped DAA 
D                                A
Well, some things you can't explain away 
Bm                                D 
But the heartache's with me till this day 


You didn't stand by me DAA

No, not at all DAA
 
You didn't stand by me DAA

No way DAA


All the times DAA
when we were close DAA
I'll remember DAA
these things the most DAA
 D strum                        B strum
I see all my dreams come tumblin' down 
I can't be happy DAA
without you around DAA
D strum                        A strum
So alone, I keep the wolves at bay 
Bm strum                          D
And there's only one thing I can say 
                

[Chorus] same cords as in the last chorus
You didn't stand by me DAA

No, not at all DAA
 
You didn't stand by me DAA

No way DAA

[Bridge:] 
         D       A     B
You must expla-a-a-ain why this must be 
        D      A     B
Did you li-i-i-ie when you spoke to me? 
 
Did you stand be me?DAA 
No, not at all DAA


Now I got a job,
 but it don't pay DAA
I need new clothes,DAA
 I need somewhere to stay DAA
    D strum                         B
But without all of these things I can do 
But without your love,DAA
 I won't make it through DAA
D struM                              A strum
But you don't understand my point of view 
Bm strum                      D
I suppose there nothing I can do



Chorus
You didn't stand by me DAA

No, not at all DAA
 
You didn't stand by me DAA

No way DAA

It's played as barre chords and the Bm alternates between 2nd fret root on 5th and 7th fret root on 6th. Otherwise, amazing tab.
