Have gotten lots of song requests for more of Taylor's songs. She is a hit with a few of my older students. Here's one for beginner's to learn and play chords in C Major.


Ours was written in 2011 by the beautiful Taylor Swift. It's an easy progression to play. You may be thinking of another song of hers, Our Song that's a good one, too.

Chords and Lyrics: Ours


Key of C
Moderately fast
4/4 Time signature


Intro: C  Am7  F (2x)


Verse 1:

  C       Am7                 F
Elevator buttons and morning air
  C               Am7                        F
Strangers silence makes me wanna take the stairs
    C                 Am7                 F
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares
           C  G/B            F   
But right now, my time is theirs

Verse:

  C                        Am7            F
Seems like theres always someone who disapproves
        C                  Am7                F
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
          C                 Am7           F
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
       G     C  G/B                F   G/B
The jury's out, but my choice is you

Chorus:

    F                    G 
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
  C                   Am
People throw rocks at things that shine
     F          G          Am
And life makes love look  hard
                 F
The stakes are high
             G
The waters rough
                  
But this love is ours

C  Am7  F (2x)

Verse 2:

 C                   Am7                     F   
They never know what people have up their sleeves
 C                     Am7                F             
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
 C               Am7                 F
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
    G         C   G/B                        F    G/B
But I don't care, cause right now you're mine

Chorus:
                F                     G            
And you'll say don't you worry your pretty little mind
  C                   Am
People throw rocks at things that shine
     F          G         Am
And life makes love look hard
                F
The stakes are high
             G
The waters rough
                  
But this love is ours

C  Am  F

C  Am  F

Bridge:

Am              G            F
And it's not theirs to speculate
         C    G/B   Am             G   
If it's wrong and your hands are tough 
             F          C      G/B 
but they are where mine belong in
Am                 G                  
I'll fight their doubt and give you
F               C    G/B   F     G
faith with this song for you

Verse:

C                Am7                F
Cause I love the gap between your teeth
C                Am7               F
And I love the riddles that you speak
          C                    Am7             F                     
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos 
C               G/B                  F    G/B
will be ignored cause my heart is yours

Chorus:

    F                     G
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
  C                   Am
People throw rocks at things that shine
     F           G        Am
And life makes love look hard

Chorus:

    F                     G
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
  C                   Am
People throw rocks at things that shine
     F          G          C    Am
But they can't take what's ours
 F          G           Am
They can't take what's ours
                F
The stakes are high
             G
The waters rough
                  C
But this love is ours
