    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

     

    Solo:  / G - - - / F - - - / x4

    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)

    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                        D                        Em                    F (hold)

    My dirty little secret   Dirty little secret  Dirty little secret--Who has to know?

    w/intro riff:

    / G - - - / F - - - / G - - - / F - - - D (hold) /
