willow - Taylor Swift

Piano notes for 'willow' by Taylor Swift


Verse 1:


I'm like the water when your ship rolled in that night
G     G   G    A B     B      B      G     G    A   B    G E 

Rough on the surface, but you cut through like a knife
G        G    G   A B        B   B   G     G        A    B  G E 

And if it was an open-shut case
B    C B   A   G   A G    A   A B 

I never would've known from that look on your face
B  C B    A G         A        A     G     A   A    B   G E 

Lost in your current like a priceless wine
G     G   G      B B     B  A     A A     G E 


Chorus:

The more that you say, the less I know
E       G     A     B    A    A    A  G   A 

Wherever you stray, I follow
E G A B     A     A    C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand
E      G A      B   A    A  A    G    A E 

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G    A  E     G   G   A E 


Verse 2:

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind
G      G  G  A B     B  B   G    G      A  B    G E  F# G F#

Head on the pillow, I could feel you sneakin' in
G       G   G   A B   B   B      G   G     A B    G E 

As if you were a mythical thing
B  C   B     A   G   A G A   A B 

Like you were a trophy or a champion ring
C       B      A   G  A G  A  G   A A B    G E 

And there was one prize I'd cheat to win
G       G     G     B    B     B    A   A  G E 


Chorus:

The more that you say, the less I know
E       G     A     B    A    A    A  G   A 

Wherever you stray, I follow
E G A B     A     A    C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand
E      G A      B   A    A  A    G    A E 

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G   A  E       G   G   A E 

You know that my train could take you home
E       G     A     B    A    A       A     G   A 

Anywhere else is hollow
G A B        A    A  C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand
E      G A      B   A    A  A    G    A E 

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G    A   E     G   G   A E 



Bridge:

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind
G      D  D  D D    G   G  F#    D    D D C  C B 

They count me out time and time again
A        A      G   A    A      B    A     G G 

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind
G      D  D  D D    G   G  F#    D    D  C  C B 

But I come back stronger than a '90s trend
A    A  A      G       A A       A   A  B A G  G 


Verse 3:

Wait for the signal, and I'll meet you after dark
G      G   G   A B      B   B    G      G   A B  G E 

Show me the places where the others gave you scars
G        G    G    A B     B      B   G G      A    B    G E 

Now this is an open-shut case
C       B   A   G  A  G   A    B 

I guess I should've known from the look on your face
B   C    B   A G          A       A     G    A   A    B   G E 

Every bait-and-switch was a work of art
G G     G    B       B      B  A   A     A  G E 


Chorus:

The more that you say, the less I know
E       G     A     B    A    A    A  G   A 

Wherever you stray, I follow
E G A B     A     A    C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand
E      G A      B   A    A  A    G    A E 

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G    A       E G   G   A E 

You know that my train could take you home
E       G     A     B    A    A       A     G   A 

Anywhere else is hollow
G A   B      A   A  C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand
E      G A      B   A    A  A    G    A E 

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G    A       E G   G   A E 


The more that you say, the less I know
E       G     A     B    A    A    A  G   A 

Wherever you stray, I follow
E G A B     A     A    C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand
E      G A      B   A    A  A    G    A E 

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G    A       E G   G   A E 

You know that my train could take you home
E       G     A     B    A    A       A     G   A 

Anywhere else is hollow
E G A        B     A  A C B A G 

I'm begging for you to take my hand

Wreck my plans, that's my man
A         G    A       E G   G   A E
