    G             (D)               (A)              (Bm)               G       (D)   (A) (1)

      Free to roam, made a home out of everywhere I've been

    Then you come crashing in

                  A (1)     Bm (1)

    G                    (D)                    (A)            (Bm)   G          (D)   (A) (1)

      I made a plan, stayed the man who can only love himself

    G (1)                            D (1)

    Lonely was the song I sang

                A (1)       Bm (1)

    'Til the day you came

        G (1)                      D (1)                     A (2)

    Showing me another way and all that my love can bring

    But I can only fall short for so long

                    D (1)        F#m (1)

    Down the road, later on

                 Am (1)                         Em (1)

    You will hate that I never gave more to you

         G (2)

    than half of my heart

              A (2)

    But I can't stop loving you

       G (2)

    I can't stop loving you

       A  (2)

    I can't stop loving you, With half of my

    Oh, half of my heart

    G               (D)                   (A)         (Bm)

    Half of my heart's got a real good imagination

    Half of my heart's got you

    G             (D)                     (A)           (Bm)

    Half of my heart's got a right mind to tell you

    G                          (D)           (A) (1)

    That half of my heart won't do

     

    G               (D)           (A)          (Bm)          

    Half of my heart is a shotgun wedding to a

    G                 (D)         (A) (1)

    bride with a paper ring

    G              (D)                  (A)      (Bm)         

    Half of my heart is the part of a man who's never

     G               (D)      (A) (1)

    truly loved anything

     

    G                     (D)    (A)   (Bm)

    Oh, half of my heart

    G                     (D)    (A) (1)

    Oh, half of my heart

    G                (D)    (A)   (Bm)

    Half of my heart

    G                    (D)    (A) (1)

    Oh, half of my heart

     

    End on D
