Iím Not Sayiní (That I Love You) --- Gordon Lightfoot

 

[D]Iím not [G]sayiní that I [D]love you,
Iím not [G]sayiní that Iíll [D]care
[G]If you [D]love me.
 

[G]Iím not sayiní that Iíll [A]care,
Iím not [G]sayiní Iíll be [A]there
When you [D]want me.
 

            Now I [G]may not be a-[A]lone each time you [D]see me,
            A-[G]long the street or [A]in a small ca-[D]fť
            But [G]still I wonít de-[A]ny you or mis-[D]treat you
            [E]Baby, if youíll let me have my [A]way. [A7]
 

[D]Iím not [G]sayiní Iíll be [D]sorry,
[D]For all the [G]things that I might [D]say
[G]That make you [D]cry.
 

I canít [G]say Iíll always [A]do
The [G]things you want me [A]to
Iím not [G]sayiní Iíll be [A]true
But Iíll [D]try.

 
Now I canít [G]give my heart to [D]you,
Or tell you [G]that Iíll sing your [D]name
[G]Up to the [D]sky.
 

I canít [G]lay the promise [A]down,
That Iíll [G]always be a-[A]round
When you [D]need me.
 

          Now I [G]may not be a-[A]lone each time you [D]see me,
          Or [G]show up when I [A]promised that I [D]would.
          But [G]still I wonít de-[A]ny you or mis-[D]treat you
          [E]Baby, it you love me like you [A]should. [A7]
 

[D]Iím not [G]sayiní Iíll be [D]sorry,
[D]For all the [G]things that I might [D]say
[G]That make you [D]cry.
 

I canít [G]say Iíll always [A]do
The [G]things you want me [A]to
Iím not [G]sayiní Iíll be [A]true
But Iíll [D]try.
