Indentation wrong? Letter game not working

What am I doing wrong here? The console keeps telling me the indentation is wrong on line 37.

Here is my exact code:

import random import os import sys

words = [ 'apple', 'banana', 'orange', 'coconut', 'strawberry', 'lime', 'grapefruit', 'lemon', 'kumquat', 'blueberry', 'melon' ]

def clear(): if os.name == 'nt': os.system('cls') else: os.system('clear')

def draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word): clear()

print('Strikes: {}/7'.format(len(bad_guesses))) print('')

for letter in bad_guesses: print(letter, end=' ') print('\n\n')

for letter in secret_word: if letter in good_guesses: print(letter, end='') else: print('_', end ='') print('')

def get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses): while True: guess = input("Guess a letter: ").lower()

if len(guess) != 1:
  print("You can only guess a single letter!")
elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
  print("You've already guessed that letter!")  
elif not guess.isalpha():
  print("You can only guess letters!")
else:
  return guess

def play(done): clear() secret_word = random.choice(words) bad_guesses = [] good_guesses = []

while True: draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word) guess = get_guess(bad_guesses, good_guesses)

if guess in secret_word:
  good_guesses.append(guess)
  found = True
  for letter in secret_word:
    if letter not in good_guesses:
      found = False
    if found:
      print("you win!")
      print("The secret word was {}".format(secret_word))
      done = True

  else:
    bad_guesses.append(guess)
    if len(bad_guesses) == 7:
      draw(bad_guesses, good_guesses, secret_word)
      print("You lost!")
      print("The secret word was {}".format(secret_word))
      done = True

  if done:
    play_again = input("Play again? Y/N ").lower()
    if play_again != 'n':
      return play(done = False)
    else:
      sys.exit()

def welcome(): start = input("Press enter/return to start or Q to quit ").lower() if start == 'q': print("Bye!") sys.exit() else: return True

print('Welcome to Letter Guess!')

done = False

while True: clear() welcome() play(done)

It's not your "exact code" if you don't blockquote it — particularly with indentation issues. See the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below for how to display code. :arrow_heading_down:

Or use the snapshot function in the workspace and provide the link to it.
