Taylor Swift - August Chords

[verse 1]
F                   A#           Gm
Salt air, and the rust on your door
                          C
I never needed anything more
F        A#             Gm
Whispers of "Are you sure?"
                    C
Never have I ever before

[chorus]
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
  A#                                   Gm
August slipped away into a moment in time
                      C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
  A#                                   Gm
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                        C
'Cause you were never mine

[verse 2]
  F           A#         Gm
Your back beneath the sun
                              C
Wishin' I could write my name on it
  F             A#                 Gm
Will you call when you're back at school?
                      C
I remember thinkin' I had you

[chorus]
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
  A#                                   Gm
August slipped away into a moment in time
                      C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
  A#                                   Gm
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                        C
'Cause you were never mine

[interlude]
F A# Gm C

[bridge]
  F                                         A#
Back when we were still changin' for the better
                Gm
Wanting was enough
                C
For me, it was enough
                 F
To live for the hope of it all
                         A#
Canceled plans just in case you'd call
           Gm
And say "Meet me behind the mall"
                    C
So much for summer love and saying "Us"
                    F        A#
'Cause you weren't mine to lose
        Gm                 C
You weren't mine to lose, oh

[chorus]
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
  A#                                   Gm
August slipped away into a moment in time
                      C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
  A#                                   Gm
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                        C
'Cause you were never mine

[outro]
  F                    A#
'Cause you were never mine
       Gm
Never mine
               C
But do you remember
    F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
            A#
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call
 Gm                                                       C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                     F
"Meet me behind the mall"
   F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
             A#
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call
  Gm                                                     C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                      F
"Meet me behind the mall"
    F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
             A#
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call
  Gm                             C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all (For the hope of it all)
         F                        A#
For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
           Gm                        C
(For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all)

[outro fades out]
F A# Gm C
