* A note about lyric sheets with chords: The music of any song moves along at a regular and rhythmic pace, and you should be playing your strums and chord changes accordingly. Many times, the placement of the lyrics will not seem to line up exactly with the placement of the chord changes. This is totally natural, though it can be a little confusing sometimes when looking at the lyric sheets with chords. Make it your priority to master playing along with the chord changes in a steady manner, and when that becomes comfortable, you can try to add in the singing. Some words and syllables will line up directly with a chord change, while other have more fluidity. Again, the guitar part is STEADY. The singing part is looser and more interpretive. Have fun!


Once upon a yesterday
You said you were here to stay
Oh - and I believed you baby

You told your story fine
Perfected every line
Oh - how I believed you baby

You said
Everything will be alright
And I believed you baby

Now I'm
Crying all through the night
Cause I believed you baby
