   / Bruno Mars          /  This is an inCREDIBLE vocal performance, worthy
  / When I Was Your Man /  of carrying an otherwise unusually simple piano-vocal

Intro:
 D7               Dm7              C                %
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+

 D7               Dm7              C                %       G/B
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+



1.& 2.Verse:
   Am               C                Dm               %
+|:=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
1. The same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now.
2. My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways.

   G                G7               C                Em/B
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same.
   Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out' my life.

  *Am               C                Dm               %
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down.
   Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, oh.

   G                %                C                Em/B
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name.
   And it haunts me every time I close my eyes.



1.& 2.Pre-Chorus:
   Am               %                Em               %
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   It all just sounds like: ooh

   Bb               %                Gsus4            G (break)
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   mm, too young, too dumb to realize that I should have bought you



1.& 2.Chorus:
   F                G                C                %
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   flowers and held your hand. Should have give you all my

   F                G                C                %
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   hours, when I had the chance. Taken you to every

   F                G                Am               D7
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   party, cause all you wanted to do was dance. Now my baby's

   F                Fm 
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
   dancing but she's dancing with another man.

  1.
   C                %       F        C                %       G/B
  +=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---:|+



2.
 C                % 
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+

Bridge:
 F                %                G                %
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 Although it hurts, I'll be the first to say that I was

 C                G/B              Am               Em/G
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 wrong!

 D7               %                Dm7              %
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 Oh, I know I'm probably much too late to try and apologize for my mistakes,

 G                %                G (break)
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 but I just want you to know. I hope be buys you



Final Chorus:
 F                G                C                %
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 flowers. I hope he holds your hand. Give you all his

 F                G                C                %
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 hours, when he has the chance. Take you to every

*F                G                Am               D7
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 party, cause I remember how you loved to dance. Do all the things

 F                Fm               C                D7
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 I should've done, when I was your man. Do all the things

 F                Fm               C
+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+=...
 I should've done, when I was your man.

You might have noticed two stars* in the tab. These show where he spices
it up with a couple of chord variations when performing on The Ellen Show.

+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=----+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=----+=
 Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, no!

+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=-----=---+=---=---=---=---+=---=---=---=---+
 I should have done, baby, when I was your man.
