How Was I To Know  John Montgomery

[D] [E9] [Em9] [Gm] [A] 

Well I hoped and I prayed and I loved you from afar     [D]
I cried and I dreamed and I wished on every star                [F#m]
But nothing I'd do got me closer to you                 [G]
So I locked all my feelings inside                              [A]

Then one night across a crowded room                    [D]
You looked my way your eyes held something new  [F#m]
You walked right up to me and smiled tenderly           [G]
And your words came as such a surprise                  [A7sus] [A7]
CHORUS:
How was I to know, you never let it show                [D] [E9]
What a beauty like you might see                        [Em9]
In a poor boy like me                                   [Gm] [A]
How could I have seen, you walk out of my dreams        [D] [E9]
Shine your light on my sleepin' heart                   [Em9]
And into my soul, How was I to know                     [Gm] [A7] [Gm] [A7] [D]

You took my hand and led me out the door                        [D]
We talked and we laughed 'bout all the times before     [F#m]
When two lonely people so much in love                  [G]
Passed like ships in the night                                  [A7sus] [A7]

CHORUS

BREAK:                  [D] [E9] [Em9] [Gm] [A]

How could I have seen, you walk out of my dreams        [D] [E9]
Shine your light on my sleepin' heart                   [Em9]
And into my soul, How was I...                          [Gm] [A7] [Gm] [A7]
How was I to know                                       [Gm] [A7]
                [D] [E9] [Em9] [Gm] [A] [D].
