[Verse 1]
            A            D/E      A
There's something in the way she moves,
Em          D       G         A
Or looks my way, or calls my name,
     Em                    G       C      D     (*)
That seems to leave this troubled world behind.
       A           D/E      A
And if I'm feeling down and blue,
Em          D         G      A
Or troubled by some foolish game,
      Em             G        C        A
She always seems to make me change my mind.

[Chorus]
                   A      Em     D     A
        And I feel fine anytime she's around me now,
               F#m
        She's around me now
        Bm7                Bm7/E
        Just about all the time
                   A            Em    D         A
        And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now, 
                   F#m         Bm7     Bm7/E
        She's been with me now quite a long, long time
                   A     G    D   A
        And I feel fine.___________

[Verse 2]
  D           C(add 9)          G6/B    C9          D
Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning
      G6/B  C9        D
And I find myself careening
       C9            G6/B             Em7    A7
Into places where I should not let me go.
D              C9                G6/B   C9           D
-- She has the power to go where no one else can find me
       G6/B C9     D
And to silently remind me
         G6/B             D          A      Bm7         Bm7/E
Of the happiness and the good times that I know, got to know.
