Welcome to this Small Bump Guitar Tutorial by Ed Sheeran!
I’ve had a whole bunch of requests for this song mainly Jerold haha. Ed Sheeran’s freestyle nature of playing always makes it hard because he never plays it the same way twice, but i’ve managed the structure it as simply as possible in my opinion. This is a little more advanced than most of his songs but for the beginners out there i’ll be teaching 2 versions!

  1. Method 1 – Fingerpicked version
  2. Method 2 – Easy strummed version

At the end of the video i’ll have a full play-through of each version. I also have a guest vocalist singing on top for context, she’s a fellow you-tuber and i’m just amazed by how she sounds in this song. Check out her youtube channel below 🙂

Em                                   Emadd9/B     Cadd9            G      
You're just a small bump unborn, in 4 months you're brought to life
             Em                      Emadd9/B      Cadd9            G      
You might be left with my hair but you will have your mother's eyes
               Em                            Emadd9/B    Cadd9         G
I'll hold your body in my hands I will be as gentle as I can, but for now 
you're a scan of my unmade plans
   Em             Emadd9/B      Cadd9               G        
A small bump, In 4 months you're brought to life


[PRE-CHORUS]

                 Am7              C                    G
I will hold you tightly, I will give you nothing but truth
             Am7           C                    D
If you're not inside me I will put my future in you


[CHORUS]

               Em        Emadd9/B Cadd9   G
'Cos you are my one, and only
                                     Em       Emadd9/B  Cadd9  G
You can wrap your fingers 'round my thumb and hold      me     tight
               Em        Emadd9/B Cadd9   G
'Cos you are my one, and only
                                     Em       Emadd9/B  Cadd9  G
You can wrap your fingers 'round my thumb and hold      me     tight
And you will be alright


[VERSE 2]

 Em                                  Emadd9/B    Cadd9        G    
You're just a small bump unknown and you'll grow into your skin
 Em                        Emadd9/B  Cadd9            G     
With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin
 Em                         Emadd9/B   Cadd9         G              
Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice and eyelids closed to be soon opened wide
  Em             Emadd9/B      Cadd9           G        
A small bump, in 4 months you will open your eyes


[PRE-CHORUS]

                 Am7            C                      G
I will hold you tightly, I will give you nothing but truth
             Am7            C                G    D
If you're not inside me I will put my future in you


[CHORUS]

               Em        Emadd9/B Cadd9   G
'Cos you are my one, and only
                                     Em       Emadd9/B  Cadd9  G
You can wrap your fingers 'round my thumb and hold      me     tight
               Em        Emadd9/B Cadd9   G
'Cos you are my one, and only
                                     Em       Emadd9/B  Cadd9  G
You can wrap your fingers 'round my thumb and hold      me     tight
And you will be alright


[BRIDGE]

D            Cadd9              Em7                       G
You can lie with me, with your tiny feet when your half asleep, I will
           D
leave you be
          Cadd9             Em7
Right in front of me for a couple weeks
      G            C   D
So I can keep you safe


[CHORUS]

               Em        Emadd9/B Cadd9   G
'Cos you are my one, and only
                                     Em       Emadd9/B  Cadd9  G
You can wrap your fingers 'round my thumb and hold      me     tight
               Em        Emadd9/B Cadd9   G
'Cos you are my one, and only
                                     Em       Emadd9/B  Cadd9  G
You can wrap your fingers 'round my thumb and hold      me     tight
And you will be alright


[OUTRO]

Em                                    Emadd9    Cadd9               G      
You were just a small bump unborn for four months then torn from life
           Em                    Emadd9      Cadd9        G     
Maybe you're needed up there but we're still unaware as why
