Visiting Hours

Emotional but not cheesy. Simple, and yet, a masterpiece. Another amazing song by Ed Sheeran.

The chords used for this song sounds so good on the acoustic guitar. I tried my best to make it as accurate as possible. It’s super easy to play.

[Verse 1]
              G                      Em
I wish that heaven....had visiting hours
                  C         C*    G*  D*
So I could just show up and bring the news
                   G                            Em
That she's getting older and I wish that you'd met her
                        C                        C*  G*   D*
The things that she'll learn from me, I got them all from you

[Refrain]
    C                                 G                D
Can I just stay a while and we'll put all the world to rights?
     C                                    G                    D
The little ones will grow and I'll still drink your favourite wine
     Em                    B                  G           A7
And soon they're going to close but I'll see you another day
           G    
So much has changed 
          D            G     C  G
Since you been.......away........

[Verse 2]
              G                      Em
I wish that heaven....had visiting hours
                  C
So I could just swing by
        C    G D
and ask your advice
               G
What would you do in my situation?
              Em
I haven't a clue how I'd even raise them
               C
What would you do?
                  C  G      D
'Cause you always do what's right

[Refrain]
    C                              G           D
Can we just talk a while until my worries disappear?
    C                                    G        D
I'd tell you that I'm scared of turning out a failure
            Em              B             G               A7
You'd say remember that the answer in the love that we create
           G    
So much has changed 
          D            G     C  G
Since you been.......away........

[Instrumental]
G      Em     C     C  G  D
...........................
G      Em     C     C  G  D
...........................

[Verse 3]
              G                      Em
I wish that heaven....had visiting hours
             C                  C    G   D
And I would ask them if I could take you home
                        G
But I know what they'd say,
                  Em
that it's for the best
                C
So I will live life the way you taught me
            C  G  D
And make it on my own

[Refrain]
    C                                G           D
And I will close the door but I will open up my heart
    C                           G              D
And everyone I love will know exactly who you are
       Em              B                G             A7
'Cause this is not goodbye, it is just till we meet again
           G    
So much has changed 
          D            G
Since you been.......away...

    • Hi, Christie!

      You could try a soft strum and do it like:

      Down – Down – Up – Up Down Up Down

      As for the chords that have an asterisk (C* G* D*) that means, single strum.

      For the strumming pattern, the only important part is the Down – Down – Up – the strum after that, you could taylor to your own playing style, as for me, I do the Up Down Up Down before repeating the pattern again but you could switch it up 😉
