[Verse 1]
G
   In a castle
D/F#
   Down a long road
Dm                   C
   A little girl was born
G
   To a king and
D/F#
   To a queen and
Dm                     C
   Her mother’s eyes welled with tears of joy
Cm                      G
   Staring at the tiny face
B7                   C
   Of a miracle she made


[Chorus 1]
 G        D/F#   Em   C
She would say I love you
Am               F    G 
She would say I love you


[Verse 2]
G
   Summer came and went
D/F#
   Unrolling 
Dm              C
   Trees all stripped to the bone
G
   Daddy’s little girl 
D/F#
   In his arms, well
Dm                    C
   They sit upon his throne
Cm
   Who is that thief 
 G
   Hiding in the dark
 B7                                 C
Just a little girl who stole his heart


[Chorus 2]
G        D/F#   Em   C   
He would say I love you
G        D/F#   Em   C   
He would say I love you
Am              F    G
He would say I love you


[Bridge]
Bm                               Em
With only these three words repeating
           C
A simple greeting 
                        G
But it’s all you would keep
Bm                        Cdim7
  Clever lips can be misleading
   C
A tongue can fly away
    Em     G    A
And won’t come back
         G
But it’s only these words 
D             
We recognize


[Instrumental]
G    D/F#    Dm    C    
Cm    G      A7    C   D


[Last Verse]
G
  6 o’clock A.M
D/F#
  The alarm rings out
Dm               C
 Awoken from a dream
G
  No more castle 
D/F#
  Down a long road
Dm                  C
  No more kings and no more queens
Cm                               G
  But she’s a princess none the less
B7                                      C
  And a handsome prince is what she’ll get


[Final Chorus]
G       D/F#   Em   C  
He will say I love you
G       D/F#   Em   C  
He will say I love you
G       D/F#   Em   C  
He will say I love you
Am             F    G
He will say I love you
Am             F    G
He will say I love you
Am             F   C   G  
He will say I love   you

[Outro]

G  D/F#  Dm  C  G
