This is a simplified version of the song that I created for a 5-year-old student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.

7 (2)                             10 (2)

    This indecision got me climbing up the walls

   7 (2)                             10 (2)

Been cheating gravity and waiting on the fall

7 (2)                                        10 (2)

   How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all

7 (2)                                          10 (2)                  

    Our hope's gone up in smoke, swallow your crown

 

Pre-Chorus:

7 (2)               10 (2)

       Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you

7 (2)                10 (2)                                   

       Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you

 

Chorus:

3                            0                       7      5

    Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you

3                            0                       7      5

    Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for you now

3                            0                7                     5

    Give me some rope I'm coming out of my head, into the clear

          3      4    5   6           

When you    go   I   come loose

    These premonitions got me crying up a storm

7 (2)                                     10 (2)               

     Leave your condition, this position does no harm
