                                                           https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3arEmkXZ8s
   [Intro]
D  Dsus4  D  Dsus4


   [Verse 1]
D         C          G      G6       Em
Hey lady, you, lady, cursin' at your life
         Am           D            Em
You're a discontented mother and a rich inventive wife
C                 D               G      G6           Em
I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do
      A                  Asus4        Gsus4                D
But I wish someone had a talked to me like I wanna talk to you


   [Chorus]
    G                        D               Em               Bm
Ooh I've been to Georgia and California, oh, anywhere I could run
C                  G                   Am               D   Dsus4  D
Took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
          G                 D              Em                  Bm
But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
C            G                  Am7   D       G    Gsus4
I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me


   [Verse 2]
D            C             G          G6   Em
Please lady, please, lady, don't just walk away
        Am                D                Em
Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today
C            D                G      G6      Em
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
          A                 Asus4                Gsus4           D
Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lies


   [Chorus]
   G                                 D
Oh I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece
        Em                    Bm
While I sipped champagne on a yacht
C                      G               Am                   D   Dsus4  D
I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got
          G                           D
I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things
       Em                     Bm
That a woman ain't s'posed to see
C            G                  Am7   D       G    Gsus4
I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me


   [Bridge Spoken]
G                               Gsus4
Hey, you know what paradise is? It's a lie. A fantasy we create about
G                                          Gsus4
People and places as we'd like them to be. But you know what truth is?
G                                                   Gsus4
It's that little baby you're holding, and it's that man you fought with
G
This morning, the same one you're going to make love with tonight.
C             D
That's truth, that's love


   [Chorus]
    Dsus4 G                       D
Sometimes I've been to cryin' for unborn children
     Em                 Bm
That might have made me complete
       C                         G                 Am              D     Dsus4  D
But I, I took the sweet life and never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet
  G                           D                   Em                  Bm
I spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that cost too much to be free
          C            G                  Am7   D       G
Hey lady, I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me


   [Link]
G  D  Em   Bm


   [Outro]
C            G         Am7   D       G
I've been to paradise, never been to me
G                         D               Em               Bm
(I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run)
C            G         Am7   D       G
I've been to paradise, never been to me
G                                  D              Em                    Bm
(I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece While I sipped champagne on a yacht)
C            G         Am7   D       G
I've been to paradise, never been to me
G                        D                Em       Bm
(I've been to cryin' for unborn children)

C      G    Am7   D
