Outro verse

Refrain                   C
Just the words of a love song
Am                   F     Dm
Just the beat of my heart

Just the pledge of my life, my love, for you


Notes: * bass note or one strum, you choose
Notes: + add extra notes, high octave scale run

(Piano notes for C played Arrpegio: CGEGCBGE, low to high)
Would have to use alternate tuning (perhaps open C)to play 
exact note run from piano, don't have the low C on guitar,
this is not an exact transcription.
