Intro

Am    G  10x

Verse 1

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

Instrumental

Am G  8x

Verse 2

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

Chorus

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

Instrumental

Am G  8x

Verse 3 (samma ackord)

Am         G                     Am                        G                      Am    G  Am    G
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Am              G                        Am                                   G           Am    G  Am    G
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done

Bridge

G     G                    G            G
And I don't wanna live that way
G            G               G             G
Reading into every word you say
G     G                            G      G
You said that you could let it go
         G                             G                         G                     G
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know...

Chorus / Outro (same chords as before)

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

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

Somebody...
