Taller than the tallest tree is --

That's how it's got to feel.

Come what may.

Only a fool would say

Fm  C         Am      C      C/B       Em             A7
But if you'll let me love you it's for sure I'm gonna love you 

F    G  Em7  A7  Dm7 G7   C
All the way,     all the way.

* Though this song never rose above #15 in popularity -- remember, rock and roll was in its infancy but already dominating music -- it did remain on the charts for 30 weeks, and become one of only 12 million-sellers. The same score was used when the song was re-recorded in 1963.
