1. Alone until my eighteenth year, we met four springs ago,

      G                         D                   G                            D

    she was shy and had a fear of things she did not know.

      G                 D                     G                    D

    But we got it on together in such a super way,

            G                       D                          G                              D

    we held each other close at night and traded dreams each day.

 

    And she said,

        C                                                        - G

    "Rocky, I've never been in love before,        don't know if I can do it,

D                                                                G                           G7

    but if you let me lean on you, take my hand, I might get through it."

    C                                                    G

    I said, "Baby, oh, sweet baby, it's love that sets us free,

             D                                                              C                        G

    and God knows, if the world should end, your love is safe with me."

 

            G                           D                               G                       D

2. We found an old gray house and you would not believe the way,

            G                        D                     G                    D

    we worked at night to fix it up, took classes in the day,

      G                        D                     G                     D

    paintin' walls and sippin' wine, sleepin' on the floor,

            G                        D                            G                                D

    with so much love for just two, soon we found there'd be one more.

 

    And she said,

        C                                                      - G

    "Rocky, I've never had a baby before,       don't know if I can do it,

D                                                                G                           G7

    but if you let me lean on you, take my hand, I might get through it. “

    C                                                   G

    I said, "Baby, oh, sweet baby, it's love that sets us free,

              D                                                             C                        G

    and God knows, if the world should end, your love is safe with me."

3. We had lots of problems then, but we had lots of fun,

     G                        D                       G                        D

    like the birthday party, when our baby girl turned one.

   G                          D            G                             D

    I was proud and satisfied, life had so much to give,

     G                       D                        G                           D

    'till the day they told me that she didn't have long to live.

 

    She said,

        C                                                     - G

    "Rocky, I've never had to die before,        don't know if I can do it..."

 

       A                      E                     A                E

4. Now it's back to two again, the little girl and I,

           A                             E                           A                                   E

  who looks so much like her sweet mother, sometimes it makes me cry.

         A                   E                       A                       E

    I sleep alone at nights again, I walk alone each day,

             A                                  E

    and sometimes when I'm about to give in,

         A                              E

    I hear her sweet voice say, to me ...

 

        D

    "Rocky, you know you've been alone before,

A

    you know that you can do it,

E                                                                 A                              A7

    but if you'd like to lean on me, take my hand, I'll help you through it.”

   D                    Dm                           A

    I said, "Baby, oh, sweet baby, it's love that sets us free.

              E                                                            D                           A

    And God knows if the world should end your love was safe with me."

                        D                                                                 - A

    She said, "Rocky, you know you've been alone before ....
