<< Go Back

This is a great song from Aerosmith. We play this song in the key of “A”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


Verse (A, E, F#, C#, D, A, E-repeat twice)
There was a time when I was so broken hearted. 
Love wasn't much of a friend of mine 
The tables have turned, yeah, cause me and them ways have parted 
That kind of love was the killin' kind 

Interlude (G, D, G, D, C, G, E)-hold E
Now listen 
All I want is someone I can't resist 
I know all I need to know by the way that I got kissed 

Chorus (A, E, F#, D, A, E, hold D)
I was cryin' when I met you. Now I'm tryin' to forget you. 
Your love is sweet misery 
I was cryin' just to get you. Now I'm dyin' cause I let you 
Do what you do - down on me 

Interlude 2 (G, Bb-C-F, G)
Now there's not even breathin' room between pleasure and pain. 
Yeah you cry when we're makin' love. Must be one and the same 

Verse 2 (same chords as first verse)
It's down on me, yeah, I got to tell you one thing. 
It's been on my mind girl I gotta say 
We're partners in crime. You got that certain something 
What you give to me takes my breath away. 

Interlude 3 (G, D, G, D, C, G, E)-hold E
Now the word out on the street is the devil's in your kiss. 
If our love goes up in flames, it's a fire I can't resist. 

Chorus (A, E, F#, D, A, E, hold D)
I was cryin' when I met you. Now I'm tryin' to forget you. 
Your love is sweet misery 
I was cryin' just to get you. Now I'm dyin' cause I let you 
Do what you do to me

INSTRUMENTAL

Interlude 4 (Eb, Bb, Eb, Bb, G#, Eb, E)-hold E
Cause what you got inside ain't where your love should stay. 
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love, if you give your heart away. Yeah 

Chorus (A, E, F#, D, A, E, hold D)
I was cryin' when I met you. Now I'm tryin' to forget you. 
Your love is sweet misery 
I was cryin' just to get you. Now I'm dyin' (hold chord on dyin’) just to let you. 
Do what you do what you do down to me, baby, baby, baby 

Chorus (A, E, F#, D, A, E, hold D)
I was cryin' when I met you. Now I'm tryin' to forget you. 
Your love is sweet misery 
I was cryin' when I met you. Now I'm dyin' cause I let you. 
Do what you do down to , down to, down to, down to 
I was cryin' when I met you. Now I'm dyin' to forget you. 
Your love is sweet 
I was cryin' when I met you 
(fade)
