I find it easiest to just bar the first fret of each chord. Listen to the song for the rhythm.


Intro:
E E B B
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Abm Abm F# F#
All of my change I spent on you
E E
Where have the times gone baby
B B Abm Abm F# F#
It's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two

Verse 1:
E E
Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember
B B Abm Abm
The people we used to be It's even harder to picture
F# F# E E
That you're not here next to me You say it's too late to make it
B B Abm Abm
But is it too late to try? And in our time that you wasted
F# F# E E
All of our bridges burned down

Pre-Chorus:
B B Abm Abm
I've wasted my nights You turned out the lights
F# F# E E B B
Now I'm paralyzed Still stuck in that time when we called it love
Abm Abm F# F#
But even the sun sets in paradise

Chorus:
E E B B
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Abm Abm F# F#
All of my change I spent on you
E E
Where have the times gone baby
B B Abm Abm F# F#
It's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two
E E B B
If happy ever after did exist
Abm Abm F# F#
I would still be holding you like this
E E B B
And all those fairytales are full of shit
Abm Abm F# F#
One more fucken love song I'll be sick

Verse 2:
E E B B
You turned your back on tomorrow Cause you forgot yesterday
Abm Abm F# F#
I gave you my love to borrow But you just gave it away
E E B B
You can't expect me to be fine I don't expect you to care
Abm Abm F# F# E E
I know I've said it before But all of our bridges burned down

Pre-Chorus:
B B Abm Abm
I've wasted my nights You turned out the lights
F# F# E E B B
Now I'm paralyzed Still stuck in that time when we called it love
Abm Abm F# F#
But even the sun sets in paradise

Chorus:
E E B B
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Abm Abm F# F#
All of my change I spent on you
E E
Where have the times gone baby
B B Abm Abm F# F#
It's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two
E E B B
If happy ever after did exist
Abm Abm F# F#
I would still be holding you like this
E E B B
And all those fairytales are full of shit
Abm Abm F# F#
One more fucken love song I'll be sick
E E
Now I'm at a payphone

Verse 3:
B B
man fuck that shit I'll be out spending all this money
Abm Abm
while you're sitting round Wondering why it wasn't you who came
F# F#
up from nothing Made it from the botton Now when you see me I'm stunning
E E
And all of my cars start with a push of a button
B B
Telling me the chances I blew up or whatever you call it
Abm Abm
Switched the number to my phone So you never could call it
F# F#
Don't need my name on my show You can tell it I'm ballin'
E E
Swish, what a shame could have got picked
B B Abm Abm
Had a really good game but you missed your last shot

So you talk about who you see at the top
F# F#
Or what you could have saw But sad to say it's over for
E E
Phantom pulled up valet open doors
B B Abm Abm
Wiz like go away, got what you was looking for Now it's me who they want
F# F#
So you can go take that little piece of shit with you

Chorus:
E E B B
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
Abm Abm F# F#
All of my change I spent on you
E E
Where have the times gone baby
B B Abm Abm F# F#
It's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two
E E B B
If happy ever after did exist
Abm Abm F# F#
I would still be holding you like this
E E B B
And all those fairytales are full of shit
Abm Abm F# F#
One more fucken love song I'll be sick
E E
Now I'm at a payphone

This tab is very difficult and I have found a lot easier ones that sound more like the actual song. This doesn't sound a lot like the original song.
