Taylor Swift - All You Had To Do Was Stay Chords

[intro]
Bb  F  C  Dm

[verse]
Bb                            F
 People like you always want back
                    C
The love they gave away
                           Dm
And people like me wanna believe you
                       Bb
When you say you cha-a-anged
                          F
The more I think about it now
                 C
The less I kno-o-ow
                       Dm
All I know is that you drove us

Off the road

[pre-chorus]
Bb
(Stay!) Hey
                     F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
Had me in the palm of your hand
                               Dm                 C
Then, why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in?

[chorus]
Bb
(Stay!) Hey
                       F
Now you say you want it, back
                       C
Now that it's just too late
                           Dm
Well, it could've been easy
               C           Bb
All you had to do was (stay!)
                           F
All you had to do was (stay!)
                           C
All you had to do was (stay!)
                           Dm
All you had to do was (stay!)
               C
All you had to do was stay

[verse]
Bb                             F
 Here you are now, calling me up
                         C
But I don't know what to say
                         Dm
I've been picking up the pieces
       C            Bb
Of the mess you made
                            F
People like you always want back
                      C
The love they pushed aside
                            Bb
But people like me are gone forever

When you say goodbye

[pre-chorus]
Bb
(Stay!) hey
                     F
All you had to do was, stay
                           C
Had me in the palm of your hand
                               Dm                 C
Then, why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in?

[chorus]
Bb
(Stay!) Hey
                       F
Now you say you want it, back
                       C
Now that it's just too late
                           Dm
Well, it could've been easy
               C           Bb
All you had to do was (stay!)
                           F
All you had to do was (stay!)
                           C
All you had to do was (stay!)
                      Dm
All you had to do was (stay! stay! stay! stay! stay!)

[bridge]
Dm
 Let me remind you
Bb        F        C           Dm
This was what you wanted (oh, oh, oh-oh-oh)
    C
You ended it
Bb         F     C          Dm
You were all I wanted (oh, oh, oh-oh-oh)
     C            Bb
But not like this
         F    C
Not like this
             Dm
Not like this

Oh, all you had to do was

Had me in the palm of your hand
                               Dm                 C
Then, why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in?
