Valentine’s Day    (video)

 

    G ~

 

    G                                 D                  - C                       G

1.     I come to you with empty hands,       I guess I just forgot again,

C                       G                   - D                            G      - D

    I only got my love to send,         on Valentine's Day.

 

    G                      B7              - C                               G

2.     I ain't got a card to sign,        roses have been hard to find,

Cm                          G          Em    - C          D                G

    I only hope that you'll be mine,         on Valentine's Day.

 

          C                G              - D                      G

    I know that I swore that I         wouldn't forget,

C                      G         B7       Em        - D

    I wrote it all down: I lost it I guess.

 

     G                                B7              - C                                    G

3.     There's so much I want to say,       but all the words just slip away,

Cm                                 G      Em   - C       D                G

    the way you love me every day,       is Valentine's Day.

 

+ instrumental = verse 3

 

    C            G              D          G

    If I could I would deliver to you,

C                           G                 B7           Em   - D

    diamonds and gold, it's the least I can do.

 

     G                                B7     - C                          G

4.      So if you'll take my IOU,        I could make it up to you,

Cm                                  G         Em  - C        B7             Em     - D

    until then I hope my heart will do,        for Valentine's Day,

C         D                G

    for Valentine’s Day.
