How Was I to Know  Reba McEntire

Intro: G C D G G C D
[G]My world rev[C]olved around you[G]
[G]Every word was a promise I was h[C]angin' [D]on [G]
[G]Swept up inside[C] a whirlwind[G]
[G]I just couldn't see the end till[C] you were g[D]one
I th[C]ought I would f[D]all apart
[C]With shattered dreams and a broken [D]heart
[C]Scramblin' in the d[D]ark

How was I to [G]know
That I'd be okay
Thought I'd lose it [C]all when you[G] walked a[D]way
How was I to [G]know
I [C]would be this st[G]rong
I had what it [C]takes a[G]ll alon[D]g
How was I to [G]kn[C]ow[D] [G] [G] [C] [D] [G]

[G]What I was [C]so afraid of [G]
Turned out to be my freedom [C]in disgu[D]ise[G]
Now I know wh[C]at I'm made of [G]
Guess it just took [C]some time to real[D]ize
[C]I was blind I coul[D]dn't tell
[C]Put too much faith in s[D]omeone else
[C]I gave up on myse[D]lf
