Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

by Brian Adams

tabbed by Chris Marks

Okay, this is a two guitar song for the most part.
Guitar 1 is nylon string acoustic, and guitar 2 is simply acoustic
Both guitars are standard tuning, but guitar 5 is CAPO 5
12/8 time
This is a long song, there's no way around it.  It was a pain in the ass to tab,
but here it is
Words are lined up as close as I could get them, full lyrics at the bottom

chords:  (relative to CAPO 5)

         Gsus  x00233

         G     x00232

         Bb    1332xx

         F/A   032010

Each character is a sixteenth note

  /3\  = triplet
   v   = chord stroke for guitar 2
   V   = accent chord stroke for guitar 2
   ->  = move note to first half of next character
  /7\  = quick pitch bend to fret 7
   2   = two notes (32nd notes)
   32  = 32nd notes

  / = slide up to
  \ = slide down to
  a = fret 10
  b = fret 11
  c = fret 12
  d = fret 13
  e = fret 14
  < = squish back (ie 32nd notes as will be denoted above)

  woman?


Lyrics:
 verse 1
To really love a woman,
To understand her,
You gotta know her deep inside...
Hear every thought,
See every dream,
And give her wings when she wants to fly...
Then when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms,
You know you really love.... a woman.

 chorus
When you love a woman you tell her that she's really wanted.
When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one.
Cause she needs somebody to tell her that it's gonna last.... forever,
so tell me hare you ever really, really, really ever loved.... a woman?

 verse 2
To really love a woman,
Let her hold you,
'Til you know how she needs to be touched...
You've got to breathe her,
Really taste her,
'Til you can feel her in your blood...
And when you can see your unborn children in her eyes,
You know you really love.... a woman.

 chorus

 bridge
You've got to give her some faith,
Hold her tight,
A little tenderness,
You gotta treat her right...
She will be there for you,
Taking good care of you...
You really gotta love your woman, yeah

 post-solo
And when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms,
You know you really love.... a woman.

 chorus

 outro
So tell me have you ever really, really, really ever loved a woman?
Oh, just tell me have you ever really, really, really ever loved a woman?
