INTRO: A E A E A E

A            E       F#m    D  A         E
Once under a scarlet sky    I told you never ending lies,
E                             B      D        A
But they were the words of a drunken vagabond
E                             B      D        A
Who knew very well he would break your heart before long
D      A       E
Oh forgive me Genevieve.
A             E       F#m      D     A     E
Now I've come back to see      Sweet Lady Genevieve,
E                             B      D        A
This time I'll give you some security
E                             B      D
And I won't make promises I can't keep
D                       A
So will you come back to me
D       B       E              A    E    A
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet Lady Genevieve?
       E
Let me rock you, hold you,
B         D         A
Take you in my arms.
E
Forgive me, please,
C#                  F#m      B                 E
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.
A             E       F#m      D     A     E
Oh if you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve,
E                      B      D        A
I'm not the impetuous fool you used to know
E                      B      D        A
I know that I used you and I hurt you so,
D                       A
But that was so long ago
D       B       E              A   E   A   E   A   E   A
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet Lady Genevieve.
E
Oh, love me,
B         D         A
Take me in your arms.
E
Let me rock you, hold you,
C#                  F#m      B                 E
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.
A            E       F#m    D  A       E
Once under a starry sky     I led you on and told you lies
E                             B      D        A
Drank too much whiskey on that hot summer night.
E                             B      D        A
I acted so slyly because you were acting so shy,
D      A       E
Oh forgive me Genevieve.

A             E       F#m      D     A     E
If you come back to me          Sweet Lady Genevieve,
E                             B      D        A
You're not the child who smiled so innocently
E                             B      D
And I'm not the rogue that I used to be,
D                       A
So will you come back to me
D       B       E              A   E   A   E   A   E   A   E
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet Lady Genevieve?
A       E        A       E       A       E    A   E
Oooooooooooooooooooooh Genevieve

A       E        A       E       A       E    A
Oooooooooooooooooooooh Genevieve
