[Verse]
1.     You can cry a million tears         You can wait a million years
2.     When your night turns to dark   Who'll be lovin you by candlelight
4. Take a chance and play your part Make romance it might break your heart
6.     It may rain,      it may shine      Love may age like fine red wine
8. Take a chance and play your part Make romance it might break your heart

Thanks very much for the chart. :)

If your hand's too small to get your thumb to the 6th string (like mine is),

you can play D x 5 4 x 7 x

(Dsus x 5 5 x 7 x)

and Bm 7 x 7 7 x x

A7 can be played with 1st finger on 6th string instead of thumb (2nd finger on 4th string and pinky on 3rd string)

This D chord gives you the advantage of playing the first 4 chords with your pinky anchored in the same spot (3rd string 7th fret). I've seen her play it that way on youtube.

Lizabeth, i think you're right, but shouldn't your "spelling" of the D chord be

x 5 4 7 x x .........? That works perfectly.
