I thought love was only true in fairy tales

Meant for someone else but not for me.

Thats the way it seemed.

C              G              D     Stop.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.


Chorus:
For the chorus the strumming pattern is simply down, down-up, down (V V^V). so you play
first chord (G) on the first down strum, and hit the C on the final down strum, and

change chords on the upstroke.

During the chorus Guitar two should play the guitar 2 inro riff over each line of the chorus.

               G   C  G
Then I saw her face,

    C       G     C  G

C     G     C   G
Not a trace

   C           G    C  G
of doubt in my mind.

Im in love,                   ooh

I thought love was more or less a given thing,

G                D               G
Seems the more I gave the less I got.

C                G
Whats the use in tryin?

C              G
All you get is pain.

C             G              D    Stop.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.

The solo for this song is very simple even for a begginer and sounds great when played
