Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
OK, so I am a beginner guitar player, and I don't have a capo... i was messing about 
what sounded good, and this seems to be a nice version of this song with no capo.. and it's easy.



[Verse]
Am

When I was younger
      Em
I saw my daddy cry
                  D
And curse at the wind
Am
He broke his own heart
And I watched
Em                        D
As he tried to reassemble it

Am
And my momma swore that
          Em                 D
She would never let herself forget
Am
And that was the day that I promised
Em
I'd never sing of love
            D
If it does not exist
Em
But darling,


[Chorus]
Am
You, are, the only exception
Em             D
You, are, the only exception
Am
You, are, the only exception
Em             D
You, are, the only exception


[Verse]
Am
Maybe I know, somewhere
Em
Deep in my soul
                 D
That love never lasts
Am
And we've got to find other ways
Em
To make it alone
         D
Keep a straight face
Am
And I've always lived like this
            Em            D
Keeping a comfortable, distance
Am
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I'm
Em              D
Content with loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk


[Chorus]
A7     Am
Well, You, are, the only exception
Em             D
You, are, the only exception
Am
You, are, the only exception
Em             D             C
You, are, the only exception


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

C  Em
Ohh---


[Chorus]
Am
You, are, the only exception
Em              D
You, are, the only exception
Am
You, are, the only exception
Em                  D
You, are, the only exception
Am
You, are, the only exception
E7                   D
You, are, the only exception
Am
You, are, the only exception
E7                   D
You, are, the only exception
En                   C
And I'm on my way to believing
A7      Em            Am              Am
Oh, And I'm on my way to believing

soo wrong
good effort though
but before you just post stuff, actually try and look up other chords
like maybe a G
then maybe a Dminor
and then perhaps a Cadd9
lol
i like the enthusiasm tho
