C          Dm      G7                     C
I beg your pardon..I never promised you a rose garden.

rain, sometimes.

When you take you got to give, so, live and let 
             Dm
live, or let go..whoa..whoa..whoa..whoa..

I could promise you things like big diamond rings,
                                              Dm
but you don't find roses growing on stalks of clover..
                        G7
so, you better think it over.
         C
Well, if sweet talking you could make it come true
                                                 Dm
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter..
                  G7
but what would it matter?

CHORUS:
    Dm                    G7              Gm
So, smile for a while and let's be jolly, love shouldn't 
      A    A7
be so melancholy..
Dm                                           F    G7
come along and share the good times while we can..an..

C
I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon..
 
but if that's what it takes to hold you,
                 Dm
I'd just as soon let you go.
                        G7
But there's one thing I want you to know.
           C
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep,
                                           Dm
and there won't always be someone there to pull you out..
                      G7
and you know what I'm talking about..

CHORUS:
    Dm                    G7              Gm
So, smile for a while and let's be jolly, love shouldn't 
      A    A7
be so melancholy..
Dm                                           F    G7
come along and share the good times while we can..an..
