Intro: D   F   G   A  G   F   D  G  D


Chorus:
           Em     A                       D
I beg your pardon  I never promised you a rose garden
               Em       A                          D
Along with the sunshine  there's gotta be a little rain sometimes
         G                                               Em
When you take you gotta give so live and let live or let go oh oh oh oh 
           A                             D
I beg your pardon I never promised you a rose garden


Verse:
        D
I could promise you things like big diamond rings
        D                                       Em
But you don't find roses growing on a stalks of clover
                       A
So you better think it over

          D
Well it's sweetin' talkin' you could make it come true
        D                                        Em
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter
                  A
But what would it matter

Pre-Chorus: 
   Em                    A
So smile for a while and lets be jolly
C                    B
Love shouldn't be so melancholy
Em                                           G   A
Come along and share the good times while we can..


Chorus:
           Em     A                       D
I beg your pardon  I never promised you a rose garden
               Em       A                          D             C   B  Em  G
Along with the sunshine  there's gotta be a little rain sometimes
           A                             D
I beg your pardon I never promised you a rose garden


Verse:
        D
I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
       D                                              Em
But if that's what it takes to hold, I'd just as soon let you go
                        A
But there's one thing I want you to know

           D
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep
          D                                Em
And there won't always be someone there to pull you out
                     A
And ya know what I'm talking about


Pre-Chorus:
   Em                    A
So smile for a while and lets be jolly
C                    B
Love shouldn't be so melancholy
Em                                           G   A
Come along and share the good times while we can..


Chorus:
           Em     A                       D
I beg your pardon  I never promised you a rose garden
               Em       A                          D
Along with the sunshine  there's gotta be a little rain sometimes
           Em     A                       D
I beg your pardon  I never promised you a rose garden
               Em       A                          D              Em  A
Along with the sunshine  there's gotta be a little rain sometimes

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
