Then strum individual strings on the C chord.

C             Am                    C
Yesterday I thought that I walked alone
          Am              G
And that love was just a memory
        C     Am                     C
But a nightingale followed me back home
        F         G               C
And my love was waiting there for me
        C       Am                  C
I had lost my faith as lovers often do
           Am                      G
When the storm clouds gather over head
          C     Am                  C
But the nightingale sang a note so true
        F         G              C     
That I knew I'd lost my fear instead
        C         Am                    C
And to think that I said love was for fools
          C          Am           F        G
And that time would never heal these old wounds
           C    Am                     C
But the nightingale saved a prayer for me
          F          G                 C
In the twilight he played a faithful tune
         C        Am                C
I have heard the lark over in the vale
           Am                       G
And I've heard the lonesome whippo-will
           C      Am                  C
But the sweetest song is the nightin-gale's
       F          G           C
And I know I'll never get my fill
         C        Am                    C
And to think that I said love was for fools
          C          Am           F        G
And that time would never heal these old wounds
           C    Am                     C
But the nightingale saved a prayer for me
          F          G                 C
In the twilight he played a faithful tune
          C    Am                      C
But the nightingale saved a prayer for me
          F          G                 C   D7  G7  C
In the twilight he played a faithful tune
