Paramore "The Only Exception" Guitar Chords and Lyrics

Yet another debut band ( for my Blog and Website, that is! ). Paramore are a Tennessee, USA band who have been around since 2004, have released 3 hit albums and been nominated for numerous Grammy and other awards - I just somehow haven't gotten round to listening to their songs that much, so this is my first attempt to work out an easy, chords and lyrics version of "The Only Exception", the third single from their 2009 album "Brand New Eyes". Lovely song, with gorgeous lyrics from Hayley Williams.

The song is in the somewhat tricky key of B major, and doesn't exactly use a standard pop/rock sequence of chords, but I think I've come up with a very playable version, even for early learning guitarists. I've changed the key from B major to G major - if you put your capo on the 4th fret this will bring your sound back to the original key. Intro, verses and chorus are all: G, Dm and Cmaj7 ( 332000 ), there is a Bridge which uses Am, G, and D, and an Outro with F, C, and G.

My guitar chords version of "The Only Exception" has been uploaded to my Pop songs chords page, you can find it at the link below:
