The Very Famous 6/8 Song – The Only Exception

This is by Paramore.. The Only Exception.. Love the chords, love the song, love the melody.



Capo 4 (what’s a capo?)

G Dm Cma7
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
- G Dm Cmaj7
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to reassemble it
- G Dm Cma7
And my momma swore that she would never let herself forget
- G Dm Cmaj7
And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love if it does not exist

- G
But darling you are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception,
G
you are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception

G Dm Cmaj7
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
- G Dm Cmaj7
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone but keep a straight face
- G Dm C
And I've always lived like this keeping a comfortable distance
- G Dm Cmaj7
And up until now I had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness
-
Cause none of it was worth the risk

G
You are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception,
G
you are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception

Am G D Am G D

Am G D
I've got a tight grip on reality, but I can't let go of what's in front of me here
- Am
I know your leaving in the morning when you wake up
- G D
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream
C
Whoa, oh, oh

G
You are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception,
G
you are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception

G
You are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception,
G
you are the only exception,
Dm Cmaj7
you are the only exception

- F C G
And I'm on my way to believing,
- F C G
Oh and I'm on my way to believing
