Verse 1:


Summer after high school when we first met


We make-out in your Mustang to Radiohead

  Am                                                       F

And on my 18th Birthday We got matching tattoos


Used to steal your parents’ liquor And climb to the roof


Talk about our future Like we had a clue

Am                                                     F

Never planned that one day I’d be losing you


* Chorus:

C                          Em7

In another life I would be your girl

    Am                                   F

We keep all our promises Be us against the world

C                              Em7

In another life I would make you stay

  Am                                         F

So I don’t have to say You were the one that got away


The one that got away


 Verse 2:


I was June and you were my Johnny Cash


Never one without the other We made a pact

Am                                                                 F

Sometimes when I miss you I put those records on (whoa)


Someone said you had your tattoo removed


Saw you downtown singing the Blues

 Am                                                       F

It’s time to face the music I’m no longer your muse But *

C          Em7      Am       F 

The one The one The one The one that got away




G                                         Am       F           

All this money can’t buy me a time machine (No)

G                                 Am     F        

Can’t replace you with a million rings (No)

G                                      Am         F               G

I should’ve told you what you meant to me (Whoa) ‘cos now I pay the price *
