Welcome to this One Guitar Tutorial by Ed Sheeran! This has been such a heavily requested song, I’m not sure why it’s taken me this long to teach it but here we are! This is a great track and once you break it down is actually quite simple. The only inconvenience is that the actual recording is in DADGAD tuning. In this video however, I’ll teach you 2 different ways of playing the song.

  1. Easy version – Using standard tuning and basic strummed chord shapes.
  2. Studio version – DADGAD tuning and fingerpicking like the actual recording.

Once you master the fingerpicking pattern or strumming pattern, everything else is quite easy!

If you want to find out more about the tuner i’m using check out my review for it below:

[Verse]
D
Tell me that you turned down the man 
             A     Bm
Who asks for your hand
                      G    D
Caus' you're waiting for me
D                                      
And I know, you're gonna be away a while,
              A   Bm          G    D
But I've got no plans at all to leave

[Pre-Chorus]
               A            G
And would you take away my hopes and dreams 
          Em         G        A
And just stay with me

[Chorus]
D
All my senses come to life
            A/C#
While I am stumbling home as drunk as I
      Bm                               A
Have ever been, and I'll never leave again
       G                A
Cause you are the only one
D
And all my friends have gone to find
         A/C#
Another place to let their hearts collide
Bm                                   A
Just promise me you'll always be a friend
     G               A 
Cause you are the only one

[Verse]
D
Take my hand and my
               A  Bm
heart and soul I will
                 G       D
Only have these eyes for you
D
You know everything changes
                  A     Bm  
But we'll be strangers
           G      D
If we see this through.

[Pre-Chorus]
                A                 G
And you could stay within these walls and bleed
          Em        G    A      
But just stay with me

[Chorus]
D
All my senses come to life
            A/C#

Cause you are the only one
D
And all my friends have gone to find
         A/C#
Another place to let their hearts collide
Bm                                   A
Just promise me you'll always be a friend
     G               A 
Cause you are the only one

[Bridge]
G                  D
I'm stumbling off drunk
               A
Getting myself lost
       Bm      
I am so gone,
        A           G
So tell me the way home
                 D                    A
I listen to sad songs, singing about love
      
And where it goes wrong
