Verse 1:
I [(C)]once met a young girl [(F)]filled with [(C)]fire,
That [(C)]saw through my front to this [(G)]shell of a[(C)] man
She[(C)] knew I'd be a handful [(F)]from the [(C)]start,
This [(C)]strong willed woman had an [(G)]angels [(C)]heart
(Electric Guitar kicks in now)
The [C]holes in these wings don't [F]allow me to [C]fly
So you'd [C]better brace for a [G]life of [C]pain,
And if [C]fate is the path to this [F]better [C]life
Some[C]how I feel you'll never see the [G]faces [C]change
Chorus:
F* G*
Through thick and thin, She stood by you
Fill
She held the key to my broken heart
Fill:

Verse 2:
C* F* C*
I look back and wonder, sit and ponder,
C* G* C*
How I could have ever neglected you?
C* F* C*
For the blood soaked soil on the old ball field,
C* G* C*
I gambled on a hand I wasn't ready to lose
But if the [C]tables were turned, and [F]I faced the [C]troubles,
[C]Tough times and struggles I [G]put you [C]through
I'd of [C]been there as you were through [F]hardship and [C]horror
My [C]life and my love are [G]pledged to [C]you
Chorus x1
Fill x1
Bridge:
Re[F]member the [C]nights she [G]waited and [C]wondered,
[F]Fused to a [C]myth that it had [G]taken it's toll.
But this [F]Godless [C]man has [G]mended [C]his way,
[F]Never again will she [G]be alone...
Verse Lead x2
Verse 3:
I[(C)] remember it well, still I[(F)] always[(C)] knew
That[(C)] she was destined[(G)] to be my[(C)] bride
This[(C)] woman had pride, she was[(F)] full of [(C)]life,
I could [(C)]see the passion [(G)]in her[(C)] eyes.
She [C]thought she found a man, But she [F]fell for the [C]devil
An [C]evil monster [G]in dis[C]guise.
Now I'll [C]honor and obey, for[F]ever [C]stay.
[C]True to you, my [G]Irish [C]rose
Chorus x1
Fill x2
