Firework Chord Chart
by Katy Perry

This is my Firework chord chart by Katy Perry. Fun, simple and easy song. We can work a little bit on dynamics in this song meaning how loud we play or how many strums we use in certain sections. The second to last chorus we can let the strums ring out a bit more. You can work on strumming louder on the choruses and lighter on the pre-choruses and verses. 

The chords in this songs are very easy if you have a capo and you put it on the first fret of the guitar. Bigger you can use 4 down strums per chord.

Strumming:

1 + 2+ 3+ 4+
DD DD DD DD

If you want to add in some little flurries between chords, you can do this:

1 + 2+ 3+ 4 +a
DD DD DD DDU

 
 

Firework Chord Chart
by Katie Perry

Capo 1st fret

Intro: G Am Em C

Verse:
G                        Am                            Em                                    C
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,  drifting through the wind wanting to start again?
G                          Am                      Em                             C       
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?
G                          Am                        Em                                   C       
Do you ever feel already buried deep 6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
G                                     Am                              Em                                            
Do you know that there's still a chance for you  'Cause there's a spark in you

Pre-chorus:
C                        G          Am          Em     C
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
         G          Am               Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July

Chorus:
                                   G    Am                                     Em              C
'Cause baby you're a firework   Come on, show 'em what you're worth
                       G             Am                                   Em       C
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" As you shoot across the sky-y-y
                        G    Am                                 Em      C
Baby, you're a firework Come on, let your colors burst
                       G           Am                                                 Em               C
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own

Verse:
G                                Am                             Em                      C
You don't have to feel like a waste of space You're original, cannot be replaced
G                         Am                              Em                        C
If you only knew what the future holds  After a hurricane comes a rainbow
G                                    Am                           
Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
Em                                          C
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
G                           Am                            Em                                   
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow  And when it's time, you'll know

Pre-chorus:

C                        G          Am          Em     C
You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
         G          Am               Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July

Chorus:
                                   G    Am                                     Em              C
'Cause baby you're a firework   Come on, show 'em what you're worth

Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" As you shoot across the sky-y-y
                        G    Am                                 Em      C
Baby, you're a firework Come on, let your colors burst
                       G           Am                                                 Em               C
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own

Bridge:

G                           Am
Boom, boom, boom      
                                    Em                          C
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
                                         G                    Am
It's always been inside of you, you, you
                                          Em                  C
And now it's time to let it through-ough-ough

Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
