Verse 1:
-------
           [C             Em                ] F
I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill
           [C         Em          ]  F
I threw the day old tea from the cup
[Am                G       ][ F       Dm7   C]
   Packed up the photo album Matthew had made
[   F           G              ] C
Memories of a life that’s been loved

           [C            Em             ] F
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
           [C            Em             ] F
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
[Am            G             ] [ F        Dm7      C]
   Dad always told me don’t you cry when you’re down
                [ F          G          ] C
But mum there’s a tear every time that I blink


Pre-Chorus:
----------
[Dm            F            ][ C         G       ]
   Oh I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up but I know
[Dm                F        ][  C               G ]
   A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved


Chorus 1:
--------
           [ C          Em ]
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
[F          G ]         [C            Em ]
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
[F          G ]
When I fell down you’d be there
[Am          F        ][   C          G]
Holding me up, spread your wings as you go 
         [Am                F ]        [C            G  ] 
And when God takes you back, he’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home


[C  Em ]  F   [G C  Em ]  F


Verse 2:
-------
                [C               Em               ]   F
I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
           [C            Em            ] F
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
[G Am                  G    ]         [   F      Dm7      C]
     John said he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek
           [F              G   ]      C
And wiped a tear from the side of my face


Pre-Chorus 2:
------------
[Dm            F            ][ C              G       ]
   And I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know
[Dm             F        ][C                    G ]
   A life with love is a life that’s been lived


Chorus 2:
--------
           [ C          Em ]
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
[F          G ]         [C            Em ]
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
[F          G ]
When I fell down you’d be there
[Am          F        ][   C          G]
Holding me up, spread your wings as you go 
         [Am                F ]        [C            G  ] 
And when God takes you back, he’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home


Bridge:

C     Em     F     '
Ooh   ooh    ooh
C     Em     F     '
Ooh   ooh    ooh
C     Em     F     '
Ooh   ooh    ooh

Chorus 3:
--------
           [ C          Em ]
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
[F          G ]         [C            Em ]
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
[F          G ]         [ Am              F        ][  C             G       ]
You got to see the person I have become, spread your wings and I know that when
[Am               F    ][   C         G      ] C
God took you back, he said Hallelujah, you’re home

Supermarket Flowers - Ed Sheeran
Supermarket Flowers - Ed Sheeran

"Supermarket Flowers" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. It was included on his third studio album (2017).

The song is the 12th and final track on the standard version of Sheeran's third studio album. In an interview with MTV, Sheeran revealed that the song is about his late grandmother. He said "She was in a hospital near my house where I was making the album so I saw her quite a lot while making the album and she passed away while I was in the studio. So that's my first reaction for anything that happens to me, good or bad, pick up a guitar." He also said that the song is supposed to "really make you cry". Sheeran had not intended to put the song in the album 'Divide' as it was simply a personal tribute to his grandmother that was written from the viewpoint of his mother. His father first suggested that he should play the song at her funeral, which he did, and his grandfather then urged that it should be included in the album after hearing it at the funeral. Sheeran said: "My grandfather just turned to me [at the funeral], he was like you have to put that out, that has to go on the record. It's such a good memory, that's why it’s ended up on there."
