Love Story Guitar Chords 

Here are the chords of the song, along with the lyrics.

We were both young when I first saw you
D
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
A
I’m standing there on a balcony in summer air
                         Em                                 G
See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
D
See you make your way through the crowd
A
And say hello, little did I know
             Em                    G

 

That you were Romeo
D
You were throwing pebbles
A
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
             Em                             G
And I was crying on the staircase
             D
Begging you please don’t go
A                          Em

 

And I said
G
Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
D
I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
A
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
Em
It’s a love story, baby, just say yes
G

 

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
D
We keep quiet ’cause we’re dead if they knew
A
So close your eyes, escape this town for a little while
                         Em                                     G

Oh, oh, oh

 

‘Cause you were Romeo,
D
I was a scarlet letter
A
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
                   Em                                 G
But you were everything to me
 D
I was begging you please don’t go
               A                        Em
And I said
G

 

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
D
I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
A
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
Em
It’s a love story, baby, just say yes
G

 

Romeo, save me, they’re trying to tell me how to feel
D
This love is difficult, but it’s real
A
Don’t be afraid, we’ll make it out of this mess
Em
It’s a love story, baby, just say yes
G

 

(Single Strokes)
I got tired of waiting, wondering if you were ever coming around
                         D                                            A
My faith in you was fading
                                 Em
When I met you on the outskirts of town
                                         G

 

(Normal Strumming now)
And I said
G
Romeo save me, I’ve been feeling so alone
D
I keep waiting for you but you never come
A
Is this in my head, I don’t know what to think
Em
He knelt to the ground and he pulled out a ring
G

 

And said
Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone
D
I love you and that’s all I really know
A
I talked to your dad, you’ll pick out a white dress
Em
It’s a love story, baby, just say yes
G

 

We were both young when I first saw you
G                                                            D
