Won't Let You Down

D                           G          A            D
I've got a new song for you one that I wrote yesterday
                           G           A                  D
It doesn't have a tune in fact it's so new it ain't got a name
          Bm                 G             D        F#m
For that life of whiskey and wine  was so fine for awhile
A           G              D            F#m
Oh with the years and the times and the styles
      Bm                G   A  Bm              G      A
Then you walked in the room    cut through the gloom
Bm             G    Em            A
You made a new mood it wasn't too soon
      D                     F#m
And I won't let you down  I won't let you down
G           A                    D                   A
Even though I may not know everything that's around
     D                 F#m
And don't let me down  don't let me down
     G                      A                D    G    D
I'll give you my word  my word is all that I have

Bm G   Bm G  Bm G    Em A    D

D                                 G        A               D
Now I went to see the gypsy queen just to find out where I stand
                                  G              A             
She said you don't need any thing you've got it all
                    D
In the palm of your hand
          Bm                 G             D        F#m
For that life of whiskey and wine  was so fine for awhile
A           G              D            F#m
Oh with the years and the times and the styles
      Bm                G   A   Bm              G      A
Since you walked in the room    cut through the gloom
Bm             G    Em            A
You made a new mood it wasn't too soon
      D                     F#m
And I won't let you down  I won't let you down
G           A                    D                   A
Even though I may not know everything that's around
     D                 F#m
And don't let me down  don't let me down
     G                      A                D    G    D
I'll give you my word  my word is all that I have


 Bm G   Bm G  Bm G    Bm
