Handy Man
James Taylor
(O. Blackwell, J. Jones) 1959

[||: D A Bm :||]
Hey girls, gather round [D, A/C#]
Listen to what I'm putting down [Bm, A]
Hey babe, I'm your handy man [G A D, G A]

I'm not the kind to use a pencil or rule [D]
I'm handy with love and I'm no fool [Bm]
I fix broken hearts, I know that I truly can [G A G D, G D A]

If your broken heart should need repair [G G4 G]
Then I'm the man to see [A D]
I whisper sweet things, you tell all your friends [G G4 G]
They'll come runnin' to me [E7 A]

Here is the main thing I want to say [G A D, /c#]
I'm busy 24 hours a day [Bm /a]
I fix broken hearts, I know that I truly can [G A G D, G A]

Come, come, come [D A Bm]
Yeah, yeah, yeah [D A Bm]
Come, come, come [D A Bm]
Yeah, yeah, yeah [D A Bm]
They'll come runnin' to me [E7 A]
[fade on D-A/C#-Bm progression]
That's me
I'm your handy man

if you could place the chords with the timing, it would make it easier to read. say if someone didnt have the song to compare it to, then they wouldnt be able to figure out the song.
