[Intro] 

D G A F#m Bm Bm/A Bm/Ab G
D A F# Bm D Em7 G D


[Verse]

 D                G          A       F#m
It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
Bm             Bm/A       Bm/Ab     G
I'm not one of those who can easily hide 
 D                A         F#        Bm
I don't have much money, but, boy if I did
 D           Em7        G           A
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

 D                G          A       F#m
If I was a sculptor, but then again no
Bm             Bm/A       Bm/Ab     G
Or A man who makes potions in A travelling show
 D                A         F#        Bm
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
 D           Em7        G           A
My gift is my song, and this one's for you


[Chorus]

 A             Bm          Em7         G
And you can tell everybody this is your song
 A             Bm          Em         G
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
   Bm                 Bm/A
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
 Bm/Ab            G
That I put down in words,
  D           Em          G          A
How wonderful life is while you're in the world


[Verse]

 D                G          A       F#m
I sat on the roof  and kicked off the moss
Bm             Bm/A       Bm/Ab     G
Well a few of the verses, well they've got me quite cross
 D                A         F#        Bm
But the sun's been quite kind, while I wrote this song
 D           Em7        G           A
It's for people like you that keep turned on

 D                G          A       F#m
So excuse me forgetting,  but these things I do
Bm             Bm/A       Bm/Ab     G
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
 D                A         F#        Bm
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean
 D           Em7        G           A
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen


[Chorus]

 A             Bm          Em7         G
And you can tell everybody this is your song
 A             Bm          Em         G
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
   Bm                 Bm/A
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
 Bm/Ab            G
That I put down in words,
  D           Em          G          A
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

   Bm                 Bm/A
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
 Bm/Ab            G
That I put down in words,
  D           Em          G          A
How wonderful life is while you're in the world


***TAKE-NOTE***
This is a very simplified version of "Your Song" for guitar (NOT piano).
I sometimes give this transcription to my students so they can work on
arpeggiation and finger-picking (this song sounds very pretty when done
this way). The chord progression [Bm]-[Bm/A]-[Bm/Ab]-[G] is just a simple
walking-bass note progression.
***ALSO-NOTE***
This transcription is NOT in the original KEY (Eb). Feel free to use a capo
to change it back (or to fit your voice better) ***I transposed the entire
song a 1/2 step lower to (1). Suit my baritone voice better during solo gigs
2). to make it a bit more guitar-friendly. Sadly some keys like Eb aren't as
easy to play typical open guitar chords in (unless you down-tune the guitar);
***Placing a capo on the 1st fret modulates the tune back to the original
key of Eb while retaining these familiar chord fingerings. A typical D chord
shape XX0232 (D,A,D,F# notes) played with capo on the 1st fret produces the
notes (Eb,Bb,Eb,G) which is actually an Eb chord. As I said, this allows the
guitarists to play the correct chords while using familiar chord fingerings.

Not too short, not too long, just right. Works very well.

remember this is a guitar transcription NOT a piano transcription. I transposed this a 1/2 step flat so guitarists can play it easier. A capo on the 1st fret gets it back to the original key of Eb (yes if you play an open first position D-chord with a capo on the 1st fret it's actually an Eb chord).
