1. Well, it was January, not the Fourth of July,

††††††††D

††† a snow white morning and a clear blue sky,

†††††† ††††††††††††††G†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††D

††† we were miles from nowhere, but somehow or other love found us.

††† †††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††C

††† We were laughing and looking in each otherís hearts,

††† D

††† talking and touching, tryin' so hard,

††††† G†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††† ††††††D

††† not to notice what was goin' on all around us.

 

†††††††††† ††††††††G†††††††††††††††††† †††††††††Em

There were fireworks flashing, thunder clappin',

C†††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

big waves crashin' on the shore,

†††††††††††† †††††††††G††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††Em

there were church bells ringing and angels singin',

†††† ††C††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††D

all gathered 'round heaven's door.

††† C†††††††††† ††††††††††††††Bm††††††††††† †††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Then we kissed and I saw the light, I could go on about this all night,

††††††††G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††C††††† - D
