  • D/F# sounds better than D, and the timing fits the accurate strumming pattern.
  • Lower key to the other versions.

The Weight  
Shawn Mendes 

Capo 3rd fret


[Intro]

Em Bm C G


[Verse]

Em        Bm       C                  G
I want to go back, forget that it's over
Em         Bm     C                   G
Painted in black, when you left me alone
Em      Bm            C
I never knew, she was sleeping next door
                   G         Em         Bm            C
With the kid I grew up with, and I can't go back to her
G        D    
Anymore, no more


[Chorus]

Em             C            G                       D
You tell me you were happier with him, but you want me to stay
Em                  C                G               D    
And you tell me that you needed time but you push me away
Em               C               G                    D
But then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
                             Em Bm C G
No, I can't lift the weight


[Verse]

Em        Bm         C                  G
Put you in the past, try to forget you cause it's over
Em        Bm           C                 G
And every time you ask I'll pretend I'm okay
Em            Bm
You're inside my head,
C
In the middle of the night when I don't feel right
G                       Em          Bm            C         G      D
I dream I can hold you, and I can't go back to you anymore, yeah, yeah


[Chorus]

Em             C            G                       D
You tell me you were happier with him, but you want me to stay
Em                  C                G               D    
And you tell me that you needed time but you push me away
Em               C               G                    D
But then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
                     Em    C      G                D
But, I can't lift the weight, and I can't lift the weight


[Bridge]

Em                              D
And I can't lift the weigh, no I can't life the weight
C                                G
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
Em                              D             
And I can't lift the weigh, no I can't life the weight
C                                   G
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
Em                              D
And I can't lift the weigh, no I can't life the weight
     C                             G
Yeah, you lower your standards and I raise the stakes
      Em                         D                   C      G
And I can't lift the weigh, no I can't lift the weight


[Chorus]

Em             C            G                       D
You tell me you were happier with him, but you want me to stay
Em                  C                G               D      
And you tell me that you needed time but you push me away
Em               C               G                    D
But then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
                     Em    C      G                D
But, I can't lift the weight, and I can't lift the weight


[Chorus]
 
Em             C            G                       D
You tell me you were happier with him, but you want me to stay
Em                  C                G               D   
And you tell me that you needed time but you push me away
Em               C              
But then you try to take me back
    G               D                               Em Bm C G
Say someday you will change, but I don't wanna wait

Em C G D
You tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay

and the last chorus is this:

Em C G D
You tell me you were happier within, you want me to stay
Em C G D
And you tell me that you needed time but you push me away
Em C G D
But then you try to take me back, say someday you might change
Em C D
but I don't wanna wait
