          G          D          G           '
I thought love was only true in fairy tales 
G            	  D                G        '
Meant for someone else but not for me. 
C                 G
Love was out to get me 
C                   G
That's the way it seemed.

Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

I'm in love,  Ooooo  I'm a believer
	    F		 [D: last 2 bars of Intro Riff]
I couldn't leave her if I tried.


Verse 2:
-------

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.

The single, produced by Jeff Barry, hit the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for the week ending December 31, 1966 and remained there for seven weeks, becoming the last #1 hit of 1966 and the biggest-selling record for all of 1967.
