Verse:
        C          C/B    Am
When a man loves a woman
                G                F
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
                 G
He'd trade the world
                        C
For a good thing he's found
C                       C/B    Am
If she is bad, he can't see it
        G           F
She can do no wrong
                      G
Turn his back on his best friend
                C     G
If he puts her down

        C           C/B   Am

Trying to hold on to what he needs
              C       C/B     Am
He'd give up all his comforts
               G           F
And sleep out in the rain

It ought to be

"put capo on second fret for all below" you mean to say. i'm supposed to stop playing half way through the song and change position of the capo, i'm sure the audience will be very patient for the 30 odd seconds this will take, i don't think.
idiot.
