Taylor Swift - Better Man Chords

[intro]
E  B  A  A

[verse 1]
E                              B
I know I'm probably better off on my own

Than lovin’ a man
    A                              A
who didn't know what he had when he had it
E                                  B
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
                    A
Never again, I just wish
                          A
I could forget when it was magic

[pre-chorus]
                 A
I wish it wasn't 4 AM, standing in the mirror
       B
Saying to myself, "You know you had to do it"
   A                                     A
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run

[chorus]
E
Sometimes, in the middle of the night,
      B
I can feel you again
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
             E/B             A
and I just wish you were a better man
      E
And I know why we had
                        B
to say goodbye like the back of my hand
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
              E/B           A
and I just wish you were a better man
  E B A A
a better man

[verse 2]
E                              B
I know I’m probably better off all alone
                       A
Than needing a man who could change his mind
              A
At any given minute
                  E
And it was always on your terms
                  B
I waited on every careless word
                       A
Hoping they might turn sweet again
                   A
Like it was in the beginning

[pre-chorus]
          A
But your jealousy, oh, I can hear it now
        B
Talking down to me like I'd always be around
        A
Push my love away like
                         A
it was some kind of loaded gun
        B
Oh, you never thought I'd run

[chorus]
E
Sometimes, in the middle of the night,
      B
I can feel you again
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
             E/B             A
and I just wish you were a better man
      E
And I know why we had to say goodbye
         B
like the back of my hand
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
              E/B            A
and I just wish you were a better man
  E  B  C#m7 E/B  A
a better man

[bridge]
  A
I hold onto this pride
                B
because these days it's all I have
      A                                C#m7
And I gave to you my best and we both know
      E/B       A
you can't say that
                  E
I wish you were a better man
           B
I wonder what we would've become
               A
If you were a better man
    C#m7               E/B
We might still be in love
              E
If you were a better man
     B
You would've been the one
               A
If you were a better man

Yeah, yeah

[chorus]
E
Sometimes, in the middle of the night,
      B
I can feel you again
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
             E/B             A
and I just wish you were a better man
      E
And I know why we had to say
                 B
goodbye like the back of my hand
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
              E/B            A
and I just wish you were a better man
           E
a better man
(Sometimes, in the middle of the night,
I can feel you again)
     B
We might still be in love,
               C#m7   E/B
if you were a better man
(But I just miss you and
I just wish you were a better man)
A
Yeah, yeah
E
I know why we had to say goodbye
         B
like the back of my hand
           C#m7
But I just miss you,
             E/B             A
and I just wish you were a better man
    E
a better man

[outro]
    B
We might still be in love
              A
If you were a better man
     C#m7                 E/B
You would've been the one
               E
If you were a better man
