ALternatively, you can play barre chords like so without the capo
The real version is played without a capo and using barre chords

Intro A, Em Dmaj7 X2 

Verse 1

A                                 Em                   Dmaj7    
When i was younger i saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind.
  A                                                Em         Dmaj7
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it.
    A                                  Em        Dmaj7
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 does not 
Dmaj7
exist. But darling..

CHORUS
A
You are the only exception
G           D 
You are the only exception
A          
You are the only exception
G           D              A
You are the only exception

Verse 2
                                  Em                 Dmaj7
Maybe i know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts.
    A                                         Em                    Dmaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face.
    A                                      Em        Dmaj7
And i've always lived like this keeping a comfortable, distance.
  A                                        Em                   Dmaj7
And up until now i swored to myself that i'm content with loneliness,
       A
'cause none of it was ever worth the risk.

CHORUS
   A
But you are the only exception
G           D 
You are the only exception
A         
You are the only exception
G           D          
You are the only exception

BRIDGE Bm     A   E X2

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

CHORUS
   A
But you are the only exception
G           D
You are the only exception
A         
You are the only exception
G           D          
You are the only exception

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

Outro

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

Great tab, sounds great just noticed a few problems with some of the lyrics, the most noticable being that where it says "I know you're leaving tomorrow, when you wake up", it should be 'in the morning'
