Intro Verse:

 C                    Gdim  G7
Ev'rything went wrong,     and the whole day long,

     Dm7 G7  C     Fdim  G7
And feel so blue.

 C              Gdim    G7
For the longest while,       I'd forgot to smile,

     Dm7 G7  C  C7
Then  I  met you.

 Em          C7              B7
Now that my blue days have passed,

                           Em      Gdim
Now that I've found you at last.


C                           G7                       C
I'll be loving you always, with a love that's true always.

C                    C7      E     
When the things you planned need a helping hand,

B7                E       G7
I will understand always, always.

C                       C7    B7  Bb7   
Days may not be fair always;        

A7                          Dm
That's when I'll be there always.

F6             Dm7-5  C              D9
Not for just an hour, not for just a day,

G7                       C               (G7)
Not for just a year, but always.

Interlude Verse:

C                    Gdim  G7
Dreams will all come true       growing old with you,

    Dm7   G7   C     Fdim    G7
And time will fly.

C               Gdim  G7
Caring each day more      than the day before,

      Dm7   G7   C     C7
The spring rolls by.

Em             C7             B7
Then when the springtime has gone,

                         Em      Gdim
Then will my love linger on.
