CAPO ON 4TH FRET

[Intro]
   
G  Dm  Cmaj7  x2


[Verse 1]

G                                 Dm                    Cmaj7
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
   G                                                Dm          Cmaj7
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it
    G                                      Dm         Cmaj7
And my mama swore that she would never let herself forget
    G                                                  Dm
And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love 
                Cmaj7
if it does not exist, but darling


[Chorus]

G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7           G
You are the only exception


[Verse 2]

                                  Dm                   Cmaj7
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
    G                                         Dm                     Cmaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face
    G                                        Dm        Cmaj7
And I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance
    G                                              Dm              Cmaj7
And up until now I had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk


[Chorus]

G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7        Am
You are the only exception


[Solo]

G  D  Am  G  D


[Bridge]

           Am
I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't 
    G                           D
Let go of what's in front of me here
              Am
I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up
         G                                  D          C
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream, whoa


[Chorus]

G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7
You are the only exception

G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7
You are the only exception
G
You are the only exception
Dm          Cmaj7
You are the only exception


[Outro]

    F          C                G
And I'm on my way to believing
        F          C                G
Oh, and I'm on my way to believing.
