I have never posted a song before, but I have used this site regularly for
many years. After looking at all the versions here of this song and some of
the chord names were not right I decided it was time to put back. This how
I play it. The chord names are correct. Standard shapes. In my opinion it
sounds fuller. This just my interpretation of the song, but I think you will
find that you can play it dead on with the various versions of the song
you will find out there. And it is easier than trying to mute strings up
around the 5th-7th frets. The voicing is obviously different from the
original.

One odd chord: A*= Aadd9 flat5  = x0120x

Sideways by Citizen Cope (aka Clarence Greenwood)  Easy Version

[Intro] 
Em  Dsus2  A*  Dsus2
Em  Dsus2  A*  Dsus2

[Verse 1]
Em                       Dsus2
   You know it ain't easy        For these thoughts here to leave me
A*                                Dsus2
  There're no words to describe it      In French or in English
Am                           Em              
    'Cause diamonds they fade   
                       A*                      Dsus2
And flowers they bloom      And I'm telling you

[Chorus 1]
                          Am                                           
That these feelings won't go away
                         Em
They've been knockin' me sideways
                         A*                                       
They've been knockin' me out lately
                   Dsus2
Whenever you come around me
                     Am                                  
These feelings won't go away
                         Em
They've been knockin' me sideways
                     A*
I keep thinking in a moment that
                        Dsus2
Time will take them away
                         Am           Dsus2  A*
But these feelings won't go away
                     Am            Dsus2 A*
These feelings won't go away  

[Verse 2]
Am               Dsus2
   It ain't easy        For these thoughts here to leave me
A*                                 Dsus2
   There're no words to describe it      In French or in English
Am                           Em              
    'Cause diamonds they fade   
                       A*                      Dsus2
And flowers they bloom      And I'm telling you

[Chorus 2]
                          Am                                           
That these feelings won't go away
                         Em
They've been knockin' me sideways
                         A*                                       
They've been knockin' me out lately
                   Dsus2
Whenever you come around me
                     Am                                  
These feelings won't go away
                         Em
They've been knockin' me sideways
                     A*
I keep thinking in a moment that
                        Dsus2
Time will take them away
                         Am           Dsus2  A*
But these feelings won't go away
                     Am            Dsus2 A*
These feelings won't go away   

[Bridge]
                   Am                     Em                    
Well diamonds they fade  And flowers they bloom   
                A*                      Dsus2
And I'm telling you       I'm telling you
              Am                     Em                    
Diamonds they fade  And flowers they bloom   
                A*                          Dsus2
And I'm telling you       and I'm telling you                               

[Chorus 3]
                          Am                                           
That these feelings won't go away
                         Em
They've been knockin' me sideways
                         A*                                       
They've been knockin' me out lately
                   Dsus2
Whenever you come around me
                     Am                                  
These feelings won't go away
                         Em
They've been knockin' me sideways
                     A*
I keep thinking in a moment that
                        Dsus2
Time will take them away
                         Am           Dsus2  A*
But these feelings won't go away
                     Am            Dsus2 A*
These feelings won't go away
                     Am            Dsus2 A*
These feelings won't go away
                     Am            
These feelings won't go away

Solid chords, the timings could use some polishing. Great work!
