	     C/G                 Am
	This guy's the one that makes you feel
	    Eb                G
	So safe, so sane, and so secure, and

Chorus:

	C /D C7/E         F                 Fm
	Baby      if he loves you more than me
	C/G
	Maybe it's the best thing
	D7/F#
	Maybe it's the best thing (maybe it's the best thing)
	   G7sus4 [N.C. except organ]
	For you
	             G7sus4 [N.C. except organ]
	But it's the worst that could happen
	[1: C/G  2: C]
	 To me

Verse 2:

	I'll never get married
	Never get married
	You know that's not my scene
	But a girl like you
	Needs to be married
	I've known all along you couldn't
	Live forever in between, and

[repeat chorus]
