[Verse 1]

             Am  G     C        C/E
You with the sad eyes, don't be discouraged
     F            Am           G
Oh I realize it's hard to take courage
     C             Dm      Em                 F
In a world full of people, you can lose sight of it all
        Am       G                   F/C     C
And the darkness inside you make you feel so small


[Chorus]

                  F    C      Gsus4          G
But I'll see your true colors shining through
              F     C          F            Gsus4 G
I'll see your true colors, And that's why I love you
   F         C        F        Am
So don't be afraid to let them show
     F/C  C       F/C  C          Gsus4 *          Am
Your true colors, True colors are beautiful, like a rainbow

Show me a smile then, don't be unhappy,
         F             Am           G
can't remember when I last saw you laughing
     C             Dm      Em                 F
If this world makes you crazy and you've taken all you can bear
        Am       G                   F/C     C
You call me up, because you know I'll be there


[Chorus]

                  F    C      Gsus4          G
But I'll see your true colors shining through
              F     C          F            Gsus4 G
I'll see your true colors, And that's why I love you
   F         C        F        Am
So don't be afraid to let them show
     F/C  C       F/C  C          Gsus4 *          Am
Your true colors, True colors are beautiful, like a rainbow

Oooo....
                     F             Am           G 
(whispered) can't remember when I last saw you laughing
            C             Dm      Em                 F
(sung) If this world makes you crazy and you've taken all you can bear
        Am       G                   F/C     C  
You call me up, because you know I'll be there

                  F    C      Gsus4          G
And I'll see your true colors shining through

I'll see your true colors and that's why I love you
   F         C        F        Am
So don't be afraid to let them show
     F/C  C       F/C  C          Gsus4 *      Am
Your true colors, true colors,

F/C  C          Gsus4   G
true colors are shining through
              F    Gsus4       F            Gsus4 G
I'll see your true colors, and that's why I love you
   F        C         E7       Am        F/C       C       F/C  C
So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors, true colors

In the line "so don't be afraid to let them show" the chord changes should be F, C, E7 (not F) then Am. Other than that excellent transcription.

If you listen closely to the recording, in the first, second, and third chorus the bass is playing an F with a major chord over it. But, in listening yet again, the final time that line comes up, you are correct on the E7. Noted and changed. Thanks!

This tab plays well with the different recording Ms.Lauper has done with this song. Good Job.
