E  F#m  G#m  F#m                                 E
I  love you,        'Cause you tell me things I want to know,
E  F#m   G#m  F#m                   E
And it's true  that it really only goes to show
G#7              C#m             Am                     F#   B
That I know that I-I-I-I should never, never, never be blue.
 
E   F#m    G#m   F#m                  E
Now you're mine,  My happiness still makes me cry.
E   F#m  G#m  F#m                     E
And in  time   you'll understand the reasons why
G#7            C#m                               
If I cry it's not because I'm sad But you're
    Am                       E     Eaug
The only love that I've ever had.
          A      B                  E   Eaug
I can't believe    it's happened to me.
           A      B              E
I can't conceive    of any more    misery.
 
E   F#m   G#m                 A
Ask me    why      I'll say I love you
        G#m                A    E
and I'm always thinking of you.
E   F#m  G#m  F#m                             E
I  love you,     'Cause you tell me things I want to know,
E   F#m   G#m  F#m                    E
And it's true    that it really only goes to show
G#7              C#m             Am                     F#   B
That I know that I-I-I-I should never, never, never be blue.
 
E   F#m  G#m                A
Ask me   why    I'll say I love you
        G#m                 A   E  Eaug
and I'm always thinking of you.
          A      B                  E   Eaug
I can't believe    it's happened to me.
           A      B              E
I can't conceive    of any more    misery.
E   F#m   G#m                 A
Ask me    why      I'll say I love you
        G#m                A    E  A  E   A  G#m7
and I'm always thinking of you.    you    you
