Verse:

          E          B          E           E
I thought love was only true in fairy tales 
E            	  B                E        E
Meant for someone else but not for me. 
A               E
Love was out to get me 
A                 E
That's the way it seemed. 
A              E             	B7     B7(hold)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams. 


Chorus:

              [E    A] [E 
Then I saw her face, 
    A]   [E    A] [E 
Now I'm a believer 
 A]  [E    A] [E 
Not a trace 
   A]         [E    A] [E    A] 
Of doubt in my mind. 
       E      A            E     
I'm in love, Ooooo   I'm a believer! 
	    D		  B7    (Last 2 bars of Intro Riff -OR-  B7, B7)
I couldn't leave her if I tried. 


I thought love was more or less a given thing, 
Seems the more I gave the less I got. 
What's the use in tryin'? 
All you get is pain. 
When I needed sunshine I got rain. 


Chorus


Lead Break: E7  B7  E7  E7 (2 times)


A               E
Love was out to get me 
A                 E
That's the way it seemed. 
A              E             	B7     B7(hold)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams. 


Chorus
