Many chord charts are for guitar but I have heard great piano licks on some.

Our Song, with words and music by this very popular artist Taylor Swift, has 
been requested numerous times and can't be ignored. Here are the chords.


D Em G A x2

      D                      Em                 G                 A
I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car
           D                  Em
He’s got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel
    G          A
The other on my heart
D                       Em
I look around, turn the radio down
        G                 A
He says baby is something wrong?
  D                 Em                G               A
I say nothing I was just thinking how we don’t have a song
And he says...

D               Em
Our song is the slamming screen door,
G                          A
Sneakin’ out late, tapping on your window
D                  Em                 G
When you’re on the phone and you talk real slow
           A                        D
Cause it’s late and your mama don’t know
                Em
Our song is the way you laugh
    G                         A
The first date “man, I didn’t kiss her, but I should have”
Em             A                       Em
And when I got home ... before I said amen
          D   G
Asking God if he could play it again

D Em G A

D                    Em                      G          A
I was walking up the front porch steps after everything the day
    D                      Em
Had gone all wrong or been trampled on
    G                A
And lost and thrown away
D                   Em             G            A
Got to the hallway, well on my way to my lovin’ bed
  D                    Em
I almost didn’t notice all the roses
G                A
And the note that said...

D               Em
Our song is the slamming screen door,
G                          A
Sneakin’ out late, tapping on your window
D                  Em                 G
When you’re on the phone and you talk real slow
           A                        D
Cause it’s late and your mama don’t know
                Em
Our song is the way you laugh
    G                         A
The first date “man, I didn’t kiss her, but I should have”
Em             A                       Em
And when I got home ... before I said amen
          D   G
Asking God if he could play it again

D Em G A
        Da da da da
D Em G A

     Em                          G
I’ve heard every album, listened to the radio
D          A            Em
Waited for something to come along
            G
That was as good as our song

D                     Em
Cause our song is the slamming screen door
G                          A         D
Sneaking out late, tapping on his window
                  Em                      G
When we’re on the phone and he talks real slow
               A                   D
Cause it’s late and his mama don’t know
                Em
Our song is the way he laughs
    G                         A
The first date “man, I didn’t kiss him, and I could have”
Em             A                       Em
And when I got home ... before I said amen
          D   G                 D Em G A
Asking God if he could play it again... 

         D Em G A    D Em G A
Play it again... Ho yea ho yea

      D                      Em
I was riding shotgun with my hair undone
       G                 A
In the front seat of his car
D                      Em
I grabbed a pen and an old napkin
      G
And I... wrote down our song

So, I like this rendition by Claytu2... good job!

Listen to all the runs in the r.h. in the Key of D.


The intro:

A, D, E, F#, E, D, B, A (single notes)


D/A, D, E, F#, E, D (single notes)


Em7/A, B, D, F#, E, D (single notes)


G/A, B, D, F#, E, D (single notes)


A/G, F#, E, D (single notes)


D/A, D, E, F#, E, D (single notes)

Em7/A, B, D, F#, E, F#, E, D (single notes)


G/A, B, D, F#, E, F#, E, D (single notes)


A/G, F# (single notes)


A/AC#E... then go right into the verse.


When you play a specific chord in this song, here are some of the inversions:

Em7 = E/GBDF#


D/F# = F#/F#AE


D = F#AD

This is a pretty easy song for the most part. Important to know the chord progressions
in the Key of D. Here's a great explanation of the Nashville Number System
