Artist Name: Katy Perry

BEGINNERS READ THIS:

This is a simplified version of the song that only uses 4 basic chords. Great for 
beginners who want to practice the normal G, Am, Em and C chords.

EASIER OPTION:

Another way to play the song is to replace Am with A7sus4, Em with Em7 and C with 
Cadd9. This is an easier way to play if you’re not comfortable with changing 
chords yet and it also sounds good on Acoustic Guitar.

TO PLAY WITH ORIGINAL SONG:

Capo 1st fret if you have a capo. If you don’t have one, transpose the chords 
below up 1 half step.

[Intro]

G Am Em C


[Verse 1]

G                  Am  
  Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, 
Em                         
  drifting through the wind 
C                       
  wanting to start again? 
G                   Am               
  Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin 
Em                    
  like a house of cards,
C                        G 
  one blow from caving in? 
G                  Am                   
  Do you ever feel already buried deep? 
Em                   C                            
 6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing 
G                          Am                  
 Do you know that there's still a chance for you 
Em                          C
 'Cause there's a spark in you 


[Pre-Chorus]

                G          Am          Em     C 
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     G       Am             Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July 


[Chorus]

                    G   Am
Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em         C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G         Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em     C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G   Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G         Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em                C
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 


[Verse 2]

G                        Am  
  You don't have to feel like a waste of space
Em                C 
  You're original, cannot be replaced 
G                  Am
  If you only knew what the future holds 
Em                 C
  After a hurricane comes a rainbow 

G                      Am  
  Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed 
Em                     C 
  So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road 
G                       Am
  Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow 
Em                                C
  And when it's time, you'll know 


[Pre-Chorus]

                G          Am         Em     C 
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     G       Am             Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July 


[Chorus]

                    G   Am
Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em           C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G        Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em     C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G    Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                  Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G       Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                              Em          C
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 
 

[Bridge]

G               Am
Boom, boom, boom       
                       Em             C
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
                           G           Am 
It's always been inside of you, you, you 
                            Em             C
And now it's time to let it through-ough-ough 


[Chorus]

                    G   Am
Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em           C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G        Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em     C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G    Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                  Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G       Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                              Em          C
You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own 


[Outro]
 
G               Am
Boom, boom, boom 
                       Em              C
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
G               Am
Boom, boom, boom 
                        Em             C      (End on G after playing C)
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
