Getaway Car - Taylor Swift

Piano notes for 'Getaway Car' by Taylor Swift from her new album 'reputation'

Verse 1:
It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
G  G    G     B   C    C      G     B    C    C 


I struck a match and blew your mind
G   B     C    C     G     B     C    C 


But I didn't mean it
C    E D C    G     A 


And you didn’t see it
C      E    D C    G  A 


The ties were black, the lies were white
G     B     C       C     G    B    C        C 


In shades of grey in candlelight
C      B     C    C   G   B C C 


I wanted to leave him
C   E D    C    G     A  


I needed a reason
C   E D   C    G A 
  
Pre-Chorus:


X marks the spot where we fell apart
G   G      G    C      G      G    G  G C


He poisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself
G     G  G      G    C    C   C   G    G  G G C


I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
C    B   B   B    C    D     C     B   B       C    C      D 


We never had a shotgun shot in the dark

Don't pretend it's such a mystery

Think about the place where you first met me
C         C C   C     C       C       C    C    G    E 


Ridin' in a getaway car
D E    D C   D E C    G 

There were sirens in the beat of your heart
E         C      D E   C   C    D    E   C     D 


I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave
C    C C        C     C   C   C   C    G    E 

Think about the place where you first met me

Verse 2:

It was the great escape, the prison break
G   G   G    B      C C       G    B C      C 


The light of freedom on my face
G      B    C   C G       B  C    C 


But you weren't thinkin'
E      D       C       G A 


And I was just drinkin'
C    E  D    C     G A 


Well, he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, "Go, go, go!"
G      C    C    C C      E C   C   C  C    C C           F    E    D

But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow
D     D     D     D  D    D D    D  C    E D 


And a circus ain’t a love story
C    C    C C    C   B   B   C C 


And now we're both sorry (we're both sorry)
C      C      B      B     C C     C        A   G G 


Pre-Chorus:

X marks the spot where we fell apart
G   G      G    C      G      G    G  G C


He poisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself

I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed
