"How Can I Tell You"   (Cat Stevens)

[Intro] Em A D G

[Verse 1]
Em           A               D G D G      Em  A
How can I tell you that I love  you, I love you
      D     G        D              G
But I can't think of right words to say
Em              A               D G    D        G
I long to tell you that I am always thinking of you,
    Em                 A
I'm always thinking of you,
       D     G     D       G  D G D        G
But my words just blow away,     just blow away
   Em                   A
It always ends up to one thing, honey,
      D     G     D                 G    Em A
And I can't think of right words to say.

[Verse 2]
Wherever I am, girl,
I am always walking with you,
I am always walking with you,
But I look and you're not there,
Whoever I'm with I'm always,
I'm always talking to you,
I'm always talking to you,
And I'm sad that you can't hear,
Sad that you can't hear,
It always adds up to one thing, honey,
When I look and you're not there.

[Interlude] Em A D G D G  (repeat 4 times)

[Verse 3]
I need to know you,
Need to feel my arms around you,
Feel my arms surround you,
Like sea around a shore,
Each night and day I pray 
in hope that I might find you,
In hope that I might find you,
Because hearts can do no more,
Can do no more.
It always adds up to one thing, honey,
Still I kneel upon the floor.

[Interlude] Em A D G

[Verse 1]
Em           A               D G D G      Em  A
How can I tell you that I love  you, I love you
      D     G        D              G
But I can't think of right words to say
Em              A               D G    D        G
I long to tell you that I am always thinking of you,
    Em                 A
I'm always thinking of you,
       D     G     D       G  D G D        G
But my words just blow away,     just blow away
   Em                   A
It always ends up to one thing, honey,
      D     G     D                 G    Em A D
And I can't think of right words to say.

this version works well and if you replace the D G D G in second line with D Dsus4 D D6, it adds some color to this part. try it you'll like it!

correction: use D5 chord not D6

To do the nice fingerpicking part: capo on the 7th fret and finger out Am, D, G, C.
