1. Summer after high school when we first met,

          Em

    we make out in you Mustang to Radio Head,

          Am                                                                   F

    and on my 18th birthday we bought matching tattoos.

                    C

    Used to steal your parent's liquor and climb to the roof,

           Em

    and talk about our future like we had a clue,

     Am                                                            F

    never planned that one day I'd be losing you.

 

                 C                            Em

In another life I would be your girl,

                           Am                                        F

we keep all our promises, be us against the world.

                 C                                 Em

In another life I would make you stay,

                             Am                                              F

so I don't have to say you were the one that got away,

                               C

the one that got away.

2. I was June, you were my Johnny Cash,

              Em

    never one without the other, we made a pact,

    Am                                                                        F

    sometimes when I miss you, I put those records on, woah.

      C

    Someone said you had your tattoo removed,

     Em

    saw you down town singin’ the blues,

          Am                                                                F

    it's time to face the music, I'm no longer your muse.

 

+  CHORUS

 

               - Em             - Am              - F                                   G

+  The o.......ne, the o......ne, the o......ne, the one that got away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                   Am          F      G

+  All his money can't buy me a time machine, no,

                                           Am      F        G

    can't replace you with a million rings, no.

                                                      Am        F       G

    I should’ve told you what you meant to me, woah,

                                       G7

    cause now I pay the price.

In another life I would be your girl,

                           Am                                        F

we keep all our promises, be us against the world.

                 C                                 Em

In another life I would make you stay,

                             Am                                              F

so I don't have to say you were the one that got away,

                               C

the one that got away.

 

               - Em             - Am              - F

+  The o.......ne, the o......ne, the o......ne.

                      C                                Em

    In another life I would make you stay,

                                 Am                                              F

    so I don't have to say you were the one that got away,

                                  C

    the one that got away.
