NOTES: This song is one of Eric's best ballads, but
       unfortunately it's not very well-known. It is
       from his 1983 album "Money and Cigarettes" and
       it features both acoustic and electric guitar
       work. An acoustic strums the chords indicated
       above each line of tab, while the electric plays
       the tab parts.

LYRICS:

Pretty girl, you are the light of my life
I mean my everything
You are the one I chose to make my wife
That?s why you wear my ring

And when I?m feeling down and out
You are the one who will bail me out
My love will always guide me home

Pretty girl, my pretty girl
Oh pretty girl, my pretty girl

Pretty girl, don?t ever say goodbye
Don?t ever let me be
If you do, you know that I would die
You mean that much to me

And when I?m feeling low and blue
You always know just what to do
My love will always guide me home

My pretty girl, oh pretty girl
My pretty girl, oh pretty girl

And when I?m feeling down and out
You?re the one who will bail me out
My love will always guide me home
My pretty girl

Pretty girl, hear what I have to say
It?s something you should know
You brought me sunshine on my darkest day
That?s why I love you so

And when my wandering day is through
I?ll always hurry back home to you
My love will always guide me home

My pretty girl, oh pretty girl
My pretty girl, oh pretty girl....
