Capo 3 (Key of F)

          D                G               D                 G 
Well I've heard those city singers singin 'bout how they can love 
D               G              D               G
Deeper than the oceans, higher than the stars above 
     D               G             D                    G
Well I come from the country and I know I ain't seen it all 
      D                 G             D          A         D
But I heard that oceans salty and the stars they sometimes fall 
    Em                               Bm
But that would not do justice to the way I feel for you 
     G             G/F#       Em               A   
So I had to sing a song about all the things I knew 

           D               G       D                 G
My love is deeper that the holler, stronger than the rivers 
Bm              G                  Em            A
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill 
           D              G               D       D/C#      Bm
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December 
    Em          G/F#       G  
And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill 
    Em              A                   D
And longer than the song of the whippoorwill 

From the back roads to the Broadway shows with a million miles between 
There's a least a million love songs that people love to sing 
And everyone is different and everyone's the same 
So this is just another way of sayin' the same thing 


Fiddle break

Real Good job on an awesome love song.

The G/F# and D/C# bother me a little. There is something about those chords that just irritates me. Not in this song, but in general. I don't like the sound of those chords. Maybe I'm not playing them right, but I skip over them in this song. Other than that, great job.

I'm with tpmadden. I just play the chord listed first in place of those so G and D is what I play in their place when I play and sing this song.

Those are transition chords - they walk you "up" or "down" to the next chord. You can hear it in the song as you follow the bass and, if you play alone, it adds character to the song. Alot of my tabs have them. It's definitely not mandatory...
