[Intro]

A  Em  D  A  Em  D 


[Verse 1]

A                                 Em                   D
When i was younger i saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind.
  A                                                Em         D
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it.
    A                                  Em        D
And my mamma swore she would never let herself forget.
    A                                                 Em
And that was the day that i promised I'd never sing of love if it does not
D
exist. But darling..


[Chorus]

A
You are the only exception
Em           D
You are the only exception

A
You are the only exception
Em           D              A
You are the only exception


[Verse 2]

  A                                Em                 D
Maybe i know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts.
    A                                         Em                    D
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face.
    A                                      Em        D
And i've always lived like this keeping a comfortable, distance.
  A                                        Em                   D
And up until now I have swored to myself that I'm content with loneliness,
       A
Because none of it was ever worth the risk.


[Chorus]

A
You are the only exception
Em           D
You are the only exception

A
You are the only exception
Em           D           
You are the only exception



[Bridge]

Bm  Bm  A  E  Bm  Bm  A  E 


[Verse]

           Bm
I've got a tight grip on reality, But i can't
    A                      E
let go of what's in front of me here.
              Bm
I know you're leaving in the morning, when you wake up,
         A                                  E
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream.
   Bm
whoa

(Pause)


[Chorus]

   A
You are the only exception
Em           D
You are the only exception
A
You are the only exception
Em           D
You are the only exception

   A
But you are the only exception
Em           D
You are the only exception
A
You are the only exception
Em           D
You are the only exception


[Outro]

G          D                  A
And i'm on my way to believing
     G         D                  A
Oh, And i'm on my way to believing

(Last line strum each chord once)

Great tab! I believe that the D is actually supposed to be a D major 7 chord. You can play it 000222

Outro is G D A, but other than that, great chords!
