[D] Almost [A] you fell in love [D] me
Almost you were my bride to [A] be
But each [D] promise that was made
You have [G] broken and be-[D] trayed
You've [E] left me with a faded memo-[A] ry. [A7]
Al-[D] most, [A] my precious dreams came [D] true
Almost, you whispered, dear, I [A] do
But [D] someone new came by
And you [G] left me her to [D] cry
Oh! how close, we [A] were Al-[D] most.
Almost, I heard the church bells ring
Almost, I heard the choir sing
But I hear now instead
All those unkind words you said.
I remember ev'ry little thing.
Almost, your heart I did possess
Almost, you brought me happiness
But dreams just won't come true
And there's nothing I can do
Oh! how close we were, Almost.
