When I Was Your Man


Intro :   D7  Dm  C  (2 times)  Em  

Am                       C                         Dm
  Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
G                           G7                     C                 Em
  Our song on the radio, but it don’t sound the same
Am                                 C                                           Dm
  When our friends talk about you all that it does is just tear me down
G                                                               C
  Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

                                   Em        Am     Em
* It all just sound like ooh,ooh,oooh,oooh
Bb                                           C
Hmmm too young, too dumb to realize

             G                                       F       G                      C
** That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
                                 F              G                C   
Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                            F                             G                        Am
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
D7                      F                           Fm                  C              Em
Now my baby is dancing, but she’s dancing with another man 

Am                   C                                 Dm
  My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
G                                    G7                                 C           Em
  Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
            Am       C                                  Dm
  Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
G                                               C
  And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

(*,**)


                   F                    G                                   C   G Am Em
Although it hurts I’ll be the first to say that I was wrong
           D7  
Oh, I know I’m probably much too late
                Dm 
To try and apologize for my mistakes
                 G
But I just want you to know
                               F       G                                 C
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
                         F      G                C
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
                              F                      G
Take you to every party cause I remember
                         Am 
how much you love to dance
D7                          F                     Fm                           C
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man!
D7                          F                     Fm                           C
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man!
