(Intro)

        A                Em9     A
There's something in the way she moves
Em9            D      G        A
   Or looks my way or calls my name
     Em             Em/F# G        C       D
That seems to leave this  troubled world behind
A                  Em9      A
And if I'm feelin' down and blue
Em            D       G       A
  Or troubled by some foolish games
    Em           Em/F# G       C         A
She always seems to    make me change my mind

           A        Em   D      A
And I feel fine any time she's around me now
      F#m
She's around me now
       Bm7/E
Almost all the time
           A            Em   D          A
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
           F#m         Bm6
She's been with me now
        Bm7/E
Quite a long, long time
           A    G  D  A
And I feel fine

   A                Em9    A
It isn't what she's got to say
Em           D         G           A
  Or how she thinks or where she's been
   Em           Em/F# G        C        D
To me the words are   nice the way they sound
  A                 Em9       A
I like to hear them best that way
Em           D      G         A
  It doesn't matter what they mean
         Em        Em/F#  G       C       A
Well she says them mostly just to calm me down

           A        Em   D      A
And I feel fine any time she's around me now
      F#m            Bm7
She's around me now
       Bm7/E
Almost all the time
           A            Em   D          A
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
           F#m           Bm7
She's been with me now
        Bm/E
Quite a long, long time
           A     G  D  A
And I feel fine

              Csus2             G/B     Csus2      D
Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning
      G/B    Csus2  D
And I find myself careening
     Csus2          G/B               Em     A
Into places where I should not let me go now
D           Csus2   
She has the power to go
      G/B    Csus2   D
Where no one else can find me
   G/B   Csus2   D
To silently    remind me
       G/B               D                 Bm7
Of the happiness and the good times that I know

   A                Em9    A
It isn't what she's got to say
Em           D         G           A
  Or how she thinks or where she's been
   Em           Em/F# G        C        D
To me the words are   nice the way they sound
  A                 Em9       A
I like to hear them best that way
Em           D      G         A
  It doesn't matter what they mean
         Em        Em/F#  G       C       A
Well she says them mostly just to calm me down

           A        Em   D      A
And I feel fine any time she's around me now
      F#m            Bm7
She's around me now
       Bm7/E
Almost all the time
           A            Em   D          A
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now
           F#m           Bm7
She's been with me now
        Bm/E
Quite a long, long time
           A     G  D  A
And I feel fine
