CHORUS:
A          Bm      E7                     A
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.
               Bm        E7
Along with the sunshine..there's gotta be a little 
A
rain, sometimes.
         D
When you take you got to give, so, live and let 
             Bm
live, or let go..now..now..now

I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.

A
I could promise you things like big diamond rings,
                                              Bm
but you don't find roses growing on stalks of clover..
                   E7
so, girl, think it over.
   A
If sweet talking you could make it come true
                                                 Bm
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter..
                  E7
but what would it matter?


BRIDGE:
    Bm                    E7              Em
So, smile for a while and let's be jolly, love shouldn't 
      Gb      Gb7
be so melancholy..
Bm                                        D    E7
come on and share the good times while we can..an..


CHORUS:
E7         Bm      E7                     A
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.
               Bm        E7
Along with the sunshine..there's gotta be a little 
A
rain, sometimes.
         D
When you take you got to give, so, live and let 
             Bm
live, or let go..now..now..now
           E7                             A
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.


#2.
A
I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon..
 
but if that's what it takes to hold you,
           Bm
I'd rather let you go.
                        E7
But there's one thing I want you to know.
           A
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep,
                                           Bm
and there won't always be someone there to pull you out..
                      E7
and you know what I'm talking about.


BRIDGE:
    Bm                    E7              Em
So, smile for a while and let's be jolly, love shouldn't 
      Gb      Gb7
be so melancholy..
Bm                                           D    E7
come along and share the good times while we can..an.


CHORUS:
E7         Bm      E7                     A
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.
               Bm        E7
Along with the sunshine..there's gotta be a little 
A

         D
When you take you got to give, so, live and let 
             Bm

           E7                             A
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.


OUTRO:
E7         Bm      E7                     A
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden...(Fade.)
