Capo 2

 

Intro: / E - - - / x5

 

E (4)

All I can see is black and white

And white and pink with blades of blue

That lay between the words I think

on a page I was meaning to send to you

A (2)

I couldn't tell if it would bring my heart

The way I wanted when I started

E (2)

Writing this letter to you

 

CHORUS:

B7 (2)

But if I could you know I would

Just hold your hand and you'd understand

A7 (hold 2 beats)

I'm the man who loves you

 

/ E - - - / x2

 

E (3 1/2)

All I can be is a busy sea

Of spinning wheels and hands that feel

For stones to throw and feet that run

But come back home

A (2)

It make no difference ever known

                                                      E (2)

It make no difference ever known to me

E (hold 4)

All I can see is black and white

And white and pink with blades of blue

That lay between the words I think

on a page I was meaning to send to you

A (2)

I couldn't tell if it would bring my heart

The way I wanted when I started

E (2) (w/harmonized 6ths Riff)

Writing this letter to you

 

B7 (2)

But if I could you know I would

Just hold your hand and you'd understand

Just hold your hand and you'd understand

I'm the man who loves you

I'm the man who loves you

 

Jam on E
