Intro:  / Em - - - / - - - - /

 

Em                      G      C                    G

      It's a little bit funny   this feeling inside

Em                       G                  C            G (1/2)    G/F# (1/2)

    I'm not one of those who can      easily hide

Em                              G       C                   G

      I don't have much money      but boy if I did

G                         Am            C                            D (2)

     I'd buy a big house where      we both could live

 

Em                          G        C                             G

    So excuse me forgetting      but these things I do

Em                 G           C                                       G (1/2)    G/F# (1/2)

    See, I've forgotten if     they're green or they're blue

Em                    G        C                       G

    Anyway the thing is      what I really mean

                         Am             C                     D (2)

    Yours are the sweetest eyes      I've ever seen

 

Chorus:

D                         Em           Am                       C

   And you can tell everybody      this is your song

D                        Em             Am                  C

   It may be quite  simple but      now that it's done

Em                                  G                                 A                              C (2 hold)

    I hope you don't mind    I hope you don't mind     that I put down in words

          G (hold)   Am (hold)  C (hold)          D (2)

How wonderful life is now you're in the world

 

Em                 G        C                      G

    If I was a sculptor,     but then again no

Em                               G           C                       G (1/2)    G/F# (1/2)

    Or a girl who makes potions in       a traveling show

Em                       G         C                           G

    I know it's not much but     it's the best I can do

G                        Am        C                      D

    My gift is my song and      this one's for you
