Verses/Refrains all same chords
--The bass notes of G, E, C, G are just the 3rd note of that chord's scale being played under
In the song, that note is being played by a synth so you can choose to play it or not,
up to you. If you listen to the song, you'll hear the synth with that beat. Again, if
have a question or are confused just shoot me an email.

Verse 1:
 C/GAm/E
If you need a friend, don't look to a stranger,
 FC
You know in the end, I'll always be there.
 CAm
And when you're in doubt, and when you're in danger,
 FC
Take a look all around, and I'll be there.

Chorus 1:
 C
 I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
 Am
 I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
 F
 But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
 CAmGC
I promise, I promise you I will.

Verse 2:
When your day is through, and so is your temper,
You know what to do, I'm gonna always be there.
Sometimes if I shout, it's not what's intended.
These words just come out, with no gripe to bear.
Chorus 2:
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.(I promise you)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.(I promise you)
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,(I promise you)
I promise, I promise you...

Chorus 3:

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.(I promise you)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.(I promise you)
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,(I promise you)
I promise you, I promise you I will.
Bridge/Interlude:

I gotta tell you, need to tell ya I gotta tell you, i've gotta tell ya
Chorus 4:

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.(I promise you)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.(I promise you)
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,(I promise you)
I promise, I promise you...
Chorus 5/Outro:

I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.(i promise you)
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.(i promise you)
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.
I will. I will.

--I love this song from the '80s. I heard it again in Napoleon Dynamite so I looked for
on the internet, but to no avail so I decided to tab it myself. Hope you enjoy. Great
Thanks for the comment on the chorus chords--I was indeed incorrect. Thanks!!
