VERSE Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Am7 It's true... that all that you know is all that you are (riff) You said that it's all that you want and more Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Am7 ...Fuck off and pour another drink-----... and tell me what you think (riff) You know that I'm too drunk to talk right now Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Am7 ...You put your cigarette out on my face... so beautiful... (riff) Please, woman don't break your back for me PRE-CHORUS F Fm (let ring) ...I'll put you out of your mis(ery) CHORUS Cmaj7 Tell me that it's all okay (tell me that it's all okay) Am7 I've been waiting on this all damn day (waitin' on this all damn day) Dm7 Call me in the mornin', tell me how last night went F Fm (let ring) I'm here.... but don't count on me to... VERSE Stay a little longer if you convince me And tell me all the things that you have against me Every time we make up, the truth is faded Everybody's blind when the view's amazing Damn, who are we right now? Can we have a little conversation? Figure it out with no intoxication We carry on, what is our motivation? We're never wrong, how the hell we gonna make it? Maybe we're used to this Tell me, what are we to do? It's like we only play to lose Chasing pain with an excuse I love that shit and so do you But don't break your back for me PRE-CHORUS I'll put you out of your mis(ery) CHORUS Tell me that it's all okay (tell me that it's all okay) I've been waitin' on this all damn day (waiting on this all damn day) Call me in the mornin', tell me how last night went I'm here, but don't count on me to stay SOLO (use verse chords) CHORUS Tell me that it's all okay (tell me that it's all okay) I've been waitin' on this all damn day (waiting on this all damn day) Call me in the mornin', tell me how last night went I'm here, but don't count on me to stay

Here’s how to play the chords used in the song (the way Post Malone plays them). Note, these can be a bit difficult - especially the F, Fm, and Dm7.

If you want some easier alternatives to these chords, try these out. Much more conventional, limited barre chords, etc. Specifically, the F and Fm chords require only a few strings. Also, the Dm7 is swapped out for a common D-minor chord. The song will still sound just fine if you use these.
