Capo on 4th

[Verse 1]
C
Summer after high school when we first met
Am
We make out in you mustang to radio head
    F                                      G
And on my 18th birthday we bought matching tattoos
        C
Used to steal your parent's liquor and climb to the roof
Am
Talk about our future like we had a clue
F                                        G
Never planned that one day i'd be losing you

[Chorus]
            C                   Am
In another life I would be your girl
                F                          G
We keep all our promises be us against the world
           C                     Am
In another life I would make you stay
                   F                             G
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
G(hold)
The one that got away.

[Verse 2]
C
I was June you were my johnny cash
      Am
Never one without the other we made a pact
F                           G
Sometimes when I miss you I put those records on...woe
C
Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Am
Saw you down town singin the blues
F                                              G
It's time to face the music i'm no longer your muse

[Chorus]
               C                    Am
But in another life I would be your girl
                F                          G
We keep all our promises be us against the world
            C                    Am
In another life I would make you stay
                   F                             G
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
G
The one that got away.

[Interlude]
The one the one the one
The one that got away.

[Bridge]
G                            Am            F
All his money can't buy me a time machine. no
G                         Am            F
Can't replace you with a million rings. no
Em                          Am           F
I shoulda told you what you meant to me. woe
G(hold)
Cause now I pay the price.

[Chorus]
           C                   Am            
In another life I would be your girl
                F                          G
We keep all our promises be us against the world
           C                     Am
In another life I would make you stay
                   F                             G
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
G(hold)
The one that got away.

[Interlude]
The one, the one, the one

[Outro]
           C                     Am
In another life I would make you stay
                   F                             G
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
G(one strum)
The one that got away

Very close except first 4 chords should be C,Em,Am and F.

It's quite wrong if you are sure the capos supposed to be on the 4th fret
