[Bass:]    [C]    [Eb]    [F]    [G]    [F]    [Eb]    [C]    [F]    [Eb]    [C]    
I beg your [Dm]pardon, [G]I never promised you a [C]rose garden
along with the [Dm]sunshine, [G]there's gotta be a little [C]rain sometimes.
When you [F]take you gotta give so live and let live or let [Dm]go, oh, oh, oh, oh,
I beg your [G]pardon, I never promised you a [C]rose garden.

I could [C]promise you things like big diamond rings
but you don't find roses growing on a stalks of [Dm]clover
so you better think it [G]over.
Well it's [C]sweetin' talkin' you could make it come true
I would give you the world right now on a silver [Dm]platter
but what would it [G]matter?
So [Dm]smile for a while and [G]lets be jolly
[Em]love shouldn't be so [A7]melancholy.
[Dm]Come along and share the good times while we [F]can.[G].  

I beg your [Dm]pardon, [G]I never promised you a [C]rose garden
along with the [Dm]sunshine, [G]there's gotta be a little [C]rain sometimes[Em]    [A7]    [Dm]    
[F]I beg your [G]pardon I never promised you a [C]rose garden

I could [C]sing you a tune and promise you the moon
but if that's what it takes to hold you, I'd just as soon [Dm]let you go,
but there's one thing I [G]want you to know.
You better [C]look before you leap, still waters run deep
and there won't always be someone there to [Dm]pull you out
and you know what I'm [G]talking about.
So [Dm]smile for a while and [G]lets be jolly
[Em]Love shouldn't be so [A7]melancholy
[Dm]Come along and share the good times while we [F]can.[G]    

I beg your [Dm]pardon, [G]I never promised you a [C]rose garden
along with the [Dm]sunshine, [G]there's gotta be a little [C]rain sometimes.
I beg your [Dm]pardon, [G]I never promised you a [C]rose garden
along with the [Dm]sunshine, [G]there's gotta be a little [C]rain sometimes.

[BASS:]
I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden
along with the sunshine, there's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
When you take you gotta give so live and let live or let go, oh, oh, oh, oh,
I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden.

I could promise you things like big diamond rings
but you don't find roses growing on a stalks of clover
so you better think it over.
Well it's sweetin' talkin' you could make it come true
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter
but what would it matter?
So smile for a while and lets be jolly
love shouldn't be so melancholy.
Come along and share the good times while we can..

I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden
along with the sunshine, there's gotta be a little rain sometimes
I beg your pardon I never promised you a rose garden

I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
but if that's what it takes to hold you, I'd just as soon let you go,
but there's one thing I want you to know.
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep
and there won't always be someone there to pull you out
and you know what I'm talking about.
So smile for a while and lets be jolly
Love shouldn't be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can.

I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden
along with the sunshine, there's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden
along with the sunshine, there's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
