Intro: GG chord  DD chord  EmEm chord

EmEm chord          GG chord        DD chord           EmEm chord
   One went out at a bus-stop in Edinburgh
         GG chord         DD chord       EmEm chord
One went out in an English park
         GG chord        DD chord                EmEm chord
One went out in a night club, when I was fifteen
GG chord      DD chord            EmEm chord
Little lights in my heart


         GG chord          DD chord          EmEm chord
One went out when I lied to my mother
         GG chord              DD chord              EmEm chord
Said the cigarettes she found were not mine
         GG chord          DD chord
One went out within me
      EmEm chord
Now I smoke like a chimney
             GG chord            DD chord        EmEm chord
It's getting dark in this heart of mine
             GG chord            DD chord        EmEm chord
It's getting dark in this heart of mine


DD chord
We're born with millions
   GG chord             DD chord              CC chord
Of little lights shining in the dark
         EmEm chord          DD chord
And they show us the way
               GG chord              DD chord                 CC chord
One lights up, every time you feel love in your heart
    EmEm chord           DD chord
One dies when it moves away


         GG chord          DD chord               EmEm chord
One went out in the back streets of Manchester
         GG chord         DD chord          EmEm chord
One went out in an airport in Spain
         GG chord            DD chord
One went out, have no doubt
            EmEm chord
When I grew up and moved out
       GG chord               DD chord           EmEm chord
Of the place where the boy used to play


         GG chord              DD chord           EmEm chord
One went out when uncle Ben got his tumor
           GG chord          DD chord       EmEm chord
We used to fish and I fish no more
          GG chord        DD chord
Though we will not return
       EmEm chord
I know one still burns
     GG chord                   DD chord          EmEm chord
On a fishing boat of the New Jersey Shore
     GG chord                   DD chord          EmEm chord
On a fishing boat of the New Jersey Shore


DD chord
We're born with millions
   GG chord             DD chord              CC chord
Of little lights shining in the dark
         EmEm chord          DD chord
And they show us the way
               GG chord              DD chord                 CC chord
One lights up, every time you feel love in your heart
    EmEm chord           DD chord
One dies when it moves away


DD chord
We're born with millions
   GG chord             DD chord              CC chord
Of little lights shining in our hearts
         EmEm chord            DD chord
And they die along the way
                         GG chord
Till we're old and we're cold
          DD chord            CC chord
And we're lying in the dark
               EmEm chord               DD chord
'Cause they'll all burn out one day
GG chord           DD chord        EmEm chord
They'll all burn out one day
       GG chord           DD chord        EmEm chord
Oh oh, they'll all burn out one day
GG chord           DD chord        EmEm chord
They'll all burn out one day

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
