Dirty Little Secret

All-American Rejects

 

Capo 3 (originally played w/power chords and no capo--this is an easier, open-chord version)

 

Intro (w/intro riff):    / G - - - / F - - - / x4

                                     / F - - - /

 

G              D                              Em                 C

Let me know that I've done wrong    When I've known this all along

G                  D                   Em           C
    I go around a time or two  Just to waste my time with you

Pre-Chorus:
Am (2)                                                Em (2)

     Tell me all that you've thrown away  Find out games you don't wanna play
C (2)                   D (2)

You are the only one that needs to know

Chorus:

G                       C                        Em                     D
I'll keep you my dirty little secret (Dirty little secret)  Don't tell any-

G                       C                        Em                           D

one or you'll be just another regret (Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
      C (2, hold second measure)

My dirty little secret--Who has to know?

 

G                D                           Em            C
   When we live such fragile lives   It's the best way we survive

G                D                    Em          C
   I go around a time or two  Just to waste my time with you

Pre-Chorus and Chorus

Em (2)                             C (2)
The way she feels inside    Those thoughts I can't deny 
Em (2)                                   C (2)

These sleeping dogs won't lie     And all I've tried to hide
     G/B (2)                      Am (2)

It’s eating me apart   Trace this life out

I'll keep you my dirty little secret (Dirty little secret)  Don't tell any-

G                       C                        Em                           D

one or you'll be just another regret (Just another regret)

G                       C                        Em                     D
I'll keep you my dirty little secret (Dirty little secret)  Don't tell any-

G                       C                        Em                             D

one or you'll be just another regret (Just another regret, hope that you can keep it)
