            F                 C
That first morning we locked eyes

I made a vow that you'd be mine

With every season, we may sway
         F              C
We're together all the way

I'll be with you all the way

This same progression is used throughout the verses, emphasizing the narrative of unwavering love and the passage of time. Chorus The chorus introduces Am into the mix but maintains the foundational C and F chords, reinforcing the song's main message of commitment "all the way." Instrumental Sections Instrumental sections follow a similar chord pattern as the rest of the song, with the addition of Am, providing a moment for reflection and emphasizing the song's emotional resonance. Playing Tips: Strumming Pattern: For a song like this, a steady, gentle strumming pattern can effectively convey the tenderness of the lyrics. A simple down-down-up-up-down-up pattern can work well, giving each chord progression a full and resonant sound. Dynamics: Pay attention to the song's emotional dynamics. The verses should be played with a sense of introspection, while the chorus can be slightly more pronounced to underscore the declaration of "all the way." Emotion Through Rhythm: Let the rhythm breathe life into the song. Slight pauses before the chorus or a softening of the strumming during more reflective lines can add depth to your performance. Chord Transitions: Practice the transitions between the C, F, and Am chords. For beginners, the F chord can be challenging because it typically requires a barre. If you're struggling with the F chord, you can use a simpler version (x33211 or xx3211 that doesn't require barring all the strings. Vocal Emphasis: If you're singing along, match the emotion of your voice with the guitar playing. The simplicity of the chord progression allows for vocal nuances to stand out, highlighting the song's heartfelt lyrics.
