[Intro]
N.C.
One, two, one, two, three, four,
G  Em  Am  D

[Verse 1]
G*  N.C.                     Em
I could live without so many things,
                Am
I don’t need to drink anymore,
                D
I don’t need to sleep no more,
D
Than three or four hours,
       G                
And if I didn’t have to 
               Em
talk to no one else,
            Am
I’d be fine by myself,
         Cmaj7
With one exception to the rule.

[Verse 2]
G                     
I could walk the snow 
           Em
without my shoes,
                Am
I don’t need to sing the blues,
        D
Or keep searching for clues,
D
About how you’re feeling.
    G                 
And I don’t even need 
                Em
to be your only man,
             Am
Just love me when you can,
             Cmaj7
One day I’ll understand,
                  G
I’m under your command.

[Chorus 1]
G                   C       G
And I could go for days and days,
                  C    Am
Darling you would be amazed,
                D
At all the tiny tragedies,
D
We drive right by.
G                       D/F#   Em
No matter what I say or what I do,
             Am
There’s only one thing true,
              Cmaj7
You’re the exception to the rule.

[Verse 3]
G*  N.C.
I don’t need to be on this plane,
           Em
Or in this car,
               Am
I’ve been both near and far,
              D
Pretending to be a big star,
D
And never believing it.
G                      
I could walk the block 
              Em
right by your side,
                  Am
Our whole world a mile wide,
          Cmaj7
Until the day we died,
                     G
No darling don’t you cry.

G                  C         G
And I could go for years and years,
        C             Am
Darling what I really fear is,
               D
All the broken people,
D
That we pay no mind to.
G                       D/F#   Em
No matter what I say or what I do,
             Am
There’s only one thing true,
              Cmaj7*
You’re the exception to the rule.

G                  C    G
And I could go for ever more,
         C              Am
Maybe we open a general store,
        D
In some small town,
D
Where no one could find us.
G                    
No matter what I say 
   D/F#   Em
or what I do,
                Am
I can’t live without you,
                   Cmaj7*
Cause you’re the exception 
to the rule.
