Hellogoodbye - Getting Old chords

Chords
Transpose
The intro is played on ukelele but this way sounds decent on guitar. And I
tried to put in the count for the strumming pattern; I hope it's right but
I haven't done that in years so please correct me if it's not.  Also, the
second half of the verses has a distinct rhythm so listen to the song for
it. Enjoy!
