VERSE
               C                                G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman it's hard
               C                                         G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you know it's hard
Em
Everybody wants her, everybody loves her
C         C/B                Am   D
Everybody wants to take your baby home


VERSE
               C                                          G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you watch your friends
               C                                    G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman it never ends
Em
You know that it's crazy, you want to trust her
C             C/B               Am         D
Then somebody hangs up when you answer the phone
               C                                      G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you go it alone


MIDDLE 8
F                    C
  Maybe it's just an ego problem
G                              C      D
Problem is, I've been fooled before
    C                         G             Em
By fair weathered friends and faint hearted lovers
    Am            C                            D
And every time it happens it just convinces me more


VERSE
               C                                         G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you watch her eyes
               C                                        G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you look for lies
Em
Everybody tempts her, everybody tells her
C              C/B       Am         D
She's the most beautiful woman they know


CODA

When you're in love with a beautiful woman you go it alone
               C                                          G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you watch your friends
               C                                    G
When you're in love with a beautiful woman it never ends
               C                                         G

The C's in the verses should be Am ;p

@ Dan Toms
No, there are no Am chords in the verses, the bass clearly plays C (capoed; actually its C# of course).
But you are right in a way: there is the note A in the lead vocal line which makes the C's in the verses C6's (i.e. Am with C as the root). It's still a C.

On the intro, play the Am (strike down from A string) down then as you begin an up-stroke (that you never complete) hit the low E with your pinky on OPEN then THIRD frets. You'll soon work out the pattern. Hope this is useful.
