This is a very simple version of "Your Song" for guitar (not piano).
I sometimes give this transcription to my students so they can work on
arpeggiation and finger-picking (this song sounds very pretty when done
this way). The chord progression [B]-[Bm/A]-[Bm/Ab]-[G] is just a simple
walking-bass note progression.
Since this transcription is NOT in the original KEY (Eb), feel free to use
a capo to change the key to suit your voice (I transcribed this a 1/2 step
lower to suit my voice). Capo on the 1st fret puts it in the original key.

D=XX0323  G=320033  A=X02220  F#m=244222  Bm=X24432  Em7=022033
Bm/A=X04430  Bm/Ab=4X4430

[D] [G] [A] [F#m] [Bm] [Bm/A] [Bm/Ab] [G]
[D] [A] [F#] [Bm] [D] [Em7] [G] [D]

[VERSE]
[D]It's a little bit [G]funny, this[A] feeling in[F#m]side
[Bm]I'm not one of [Bm/A]those who can [Bm/Ab]easily hi[G]de
[D]I don't have much [A]money, but, [F#]boy if I [Bm]did
[D]I'd buy a big [Em7]house where [G]we both could [A]live

[D]If I was a [G]sculptor, but[A] then ag[F#m]ain no
[Bm]Or A man who [Bm/A]makes potions in A [Bm/Ab]travelling [G]show
[D]I know it's not [A]much but it's the [F#]best I can [Bm]do
[D]My gift is my [Em7]song, and [G]this one's for [D]you
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Chorus]
[A]And you can tell [Bm]everybody [Em7]this is your [G]song
[A]It may be [Bm]quite simple [Em]but now that it's [G]done
I [Bm]hope you don't mind, I [Bm/A]hope you don't mind
[Bm/Ab]That I put down in [G]words,

How [D]wonderful [Em]life is while [G]you're in the [A]world
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
[D]I sat on the [G]roof [A] and kicked off the [F#m]moss
[Bm]Well a few of the [Bm/A]verses, well [Bm/Ab]they've got me quite [G]cross
[D]But the sun's been quite [A]kind, while I [F#]wrote this [Bm]song
[D]It's for people like [Em7]you that [G]keep turned [A]on

[D]So excuse me [G]forgetting, [A] but these things I [F#m]do
[Bm]You see I've for[Bm/A]gotten if they're [Bm/Ab]green or they're [G]blue
[D]Anyway, the [A]thing is, [F#]what I really [Bm]mean
[D]Yours are the [Em7]sweetest eyes [G]I've ever [D]seen
-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Chorus]
[A]And you can tell [Bm]everybody [Em7]this is your [G]song
[A]It may be [Bm]quite simple [Em]but now that it's [G]done
I [Bm]hope you don't mind, I [Bm/A]hope you don't mind
[Bm/Ab]That I put down in [G]words,
How [D]wonderful [Em]life is while [G]you're in the [A]world

I [Bm]hope you don't mind, I [Bm/A]hope you don't mind
[Bm/Ab]That I put down in [G]words,
How [D]wonderful [Em]life is while [G]you're [A]in the [D]world
