VERSE 1:

G                 D
 It's late in the evening
C                     D
 She's wondering what clothes to wear
G                D
 She puts on her make up
C                D
 And brushes her long blonde hair


CHORUS 1:

C             D
 And then she asks me
G     D/F#   Em
 Do I look alright
           C             D                G
 And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

VERSE 2:

G        D
 We go a party
C             D
 And everyone turns to see
G               D
 This beautiful lady
C                 D
 That's walking around with me


CHORUS 2:

C             D
 And then she asks me
G       D/F#   Em
 Do you feel alright
           C           D                G
 And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

BRIDGE:

        C
 I feel wonderful
     D              G         D/F#    Em
 Because I see the love light in your eyes
         C            D
 And the wonder of it all
             C                D
 Is that you just don't realize
            G
 How much I love you

VERSE 3:

G                D
 It's time to go home now
C                       D
 And I've got an aching head
G                  D
 So I give her the car keys
C                D
 She helps me to bed


CHORUS 3:

C           D
 And then I tell her
G     D/F#         Em
 As I turn out the light
          C                 D               G
 I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
