Em7 G/B A7sus4 A7 F#m7 Bm Bm7 When lonely feelings chill the mea - dows of your mind, G G/B A7 A7/9 A7 Gdim A7-9 DM7 Just think if Win - ter comes, can Spring be far behind? G#m7 Fdim(III) C#7 F#m7 Cdim B7 Beneath the deepest snows, the secret of a rose Em7 G/B A7/9 A7 Gdim D B7 Is merely that it knows you must believe in Spring! Em7 G/B A7sus4 A7 F#m7 Bm Bm7 Just as a tree is sure its leaves will reappear; G G/B A7 A7/9 A7 Gdim A7-9 DM7 It knows its emp - ti - ness is just the time of year G#m7 Fdim(III) C#7 Gm7 Gdim B7 The frozen mountain dreams of April's melting streams; Fm7 Fdim Bb7 Gdim Dm7 How crystal clear it seems -- you must believe in Spring! Em7 G/B A7sus4 A7 F#m7 Bm Bm7 You must believe in love, and trust it's on its way, G G/B A7 A7/9 A7 Gdim A7-9 DM7 Just as the sleep - ing rose a - waits the kiss of May G#m7 Fdim(III) C#7 F#m7 Cdim B7 So in a world of snow, of things that come and go, Em7 G/B A7sus4 A7 Gdim A7-9 B7 Where what you think you know, you can't be certain of, G5 G5/F# G/B A7sus4 A7+5 Bm You must believe in Spring and love.
