Verse 1:
Dm      C                Dm     C        Dm    C    Dm    C
Now and then I think of when we were together
Dm            C                Dm        C     Dm   C  Dm    C
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Dm          C             Dm        C
Told myself that you were right for me
Dm          C              Dm        C
But felt so lonely in your company
Dm           C                Dm        C       Dm   C  Dm  C
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

Instrumental:
Dm | C | Dm | C (4x)

Verse 2:
Dm           C            Dm      C        Dm       C   Am  C
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Dm         C            Dm
Like resignation to the end
C          Dm   C   Dm  C
Always the end
Dm         C                   Dm        C
So when we found that we could not make sense
Dm       C                   Dm       C
Well you said that we would still be friends
Dm         C               Dm       C       Dm   C  Dm C
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

Chorus 1:
Dm      C              Bb     C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm       C             Bb
Make out like it never happened
         C          Dm
And that we were nothing
    C             Bb       C
And I don't even need your love
         Dm              C
But you treat me like a stranger
         Bb       C      Dm
And that feels so rough
    C               Bb      C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm         C                   Bb
Have your friends collect your records
          C           Dm
And then change your number
  C                  Bb         C
I guess that I don't need that though
Dm              C               Bb      C
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Dm | C | Dm | C
Dm              C               Bb      C 
Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Dm | C | Dm | C
Dm              C               Bb      C 
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Verse 3:
Dm             C                Dm         C          Dm  C Dm C
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Dm          C                Dm              C      Dm   C Dm C
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
C
And I don't wanna live that way
C
Reading into every word you say
C
You said that you could let it go
C                                       (stop)
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

Chorus 2:
Dm      C              Bb     C
But you didn't have to cut me off
Dm       C             Bb
Make out like it never happened
         C          Dm
And that we were nothing
    C             Bb       C
And I don't even need your love
         Dm              C
But you treat me like a stranger
         Bb       C      Dm
And that feels so rough
    C               Bb      C
You didn't have to stoop so low
Dm         C                   Bb
Have your friends collect your records
          C           Dm
And then change your number
  C                  Bb         C
I guess that I don't need that though
Dm              C               Bb      C
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Dm          C    Bb          C
Somebody         (I used to know)
Dm          C       Bb        C
Somebody    (That I used to know)
Dm          C    Bb          C
Somebody         (I used to know)
Dm                         C            Bb        C
Somebody    (Now you're just somebody that I used to know)
Dm    C   Bb       C
      (I used to know)

    Ben,

    Good Job!

    I’ve always wanted to play guitar. Years ago I took bass guitar lessons and had to stop when I changed jobs. I hope to learn more about the right guitar to buy and we come back here to take some lessons.

    Once again good job and all the best to you,

    Carl

      Don’t hesitate to reach for me if you need any help! And bass playing is not so far from guitar playing, so I’m sure you’ll be fine 😉
