Intro: C  G  Am  F

C
We were both young when i first saw you 
F
I close my eyes and the flashback starts 
Am                       F
Im standing there on a balcony of summer air 


C
See the lights, See the party the ball gowns 
       F
I see you make your way through the crowd 
          Am
And say hello 
              G
Little did i know 


           F                      G
That you were romeo you were throwing pebbles 
          Am                       C
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet 
            F
And i was crying on the staircase 
  G                      Am         C
Begging you please don't go, and i said 


  C
Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone 
 G
I'll be waiting all theres left to do is run 
 Am
You'll be the prince and i'll be the princess 
 F                G                 C
Its a love story baby just say yes 


 C
So i sneak out to the garden to see you 
 F
We keep quite because we're dead if they know 
 Am
So close your eyes 
        G
Escape this town for a little while


            F                   G
Cause you were Romeo I was a scarlet letter 
         Am                        C
and my daddy said stay away from Juliet 
         F
But you were everything to me 
            G                      Am            C
and i was begging you please don't go and i said 


 C
Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone 
 G
I'll be waiting all theres left to do is run 
 Am
You be the prince i'll be the princess 
 F                G                 C
Its a love story baby just say yes 


  C
Romeo save me, they try to tell me how to feel
  G
This love is difficult, but it's real
  Am
Don’t be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
 F                G 
Its a love story baby just say yes, oh

Solo: C  G  Am  F

                 Am     
I got tired of waiting, 
F               C              G
  wondering if you were ever coming around 
             Am        F
My faith in you was fading
                         C           G
Then i met you on the outskirts of town and i said 


  C
Romeo save me i've been feeling so alone 
   G
I keep waiting for you but you never come 
    Am
Is this in my head, i don't know what to think 
     F                       G
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said


  D
Marry me Juliet you'll never have to be alone 
   A
I love you and thats all I really know 
   Bm
I talked to your dad go pick out a white dress
 G                 A            D
Its a love story baby just say yes 


D   A   Bm
Oh, oh, yes 
         G                           D
We were very young when i first saw you

The strumming pattern is D-D-U-U-D-U-.

I’m not sure if it’s the real one but the videos I’ve seen used the strumming pattern. (it’s called the island strum)

If you do -2 it sounds nicer and is easier for people with lower voices, but the chords are a bit strange and may be difficult for some players :)
