Intro: 
A7  F#7  E7  A7  
A7 B7  E7  A

Verse 1:

       A                                B7
Well I call you every morning bring you flowers to work 
E                  A
Never stay out too late 
A                           B7
I quit drinking mama 'cuz I know how it hurts you 
    E                      A
to see me in such an awful state 

Chorus 1:

    F#m       E               D                F
But right now I just feel the need to see this through
             A    A/G#  A/F#     D      E       A
So I need to know right now just what I mean to you 


Whistle solo: A  B7  E  A (x2)


Verse 2:

    A                       B7     
Now I don't need no riches, diamonds or gold 
    E                    A
No, ordinary trinkets'll do 
    A                     B7
And I don't expect you to break out in song 
       E                           A
'Cuz I know that you can't carry a tune 


Chorus 2:

   F#m                E                      D              F
So speak low when you speak, love, if that's what you gotta do
          A    A/G#  A/F#     D      E       A
I need to know right now just what I mean to you 


Bridge:

    F#m             D                 A
Now I don't ask for too much, now, do I? 
   F#m           D
So grant me this don't turn away 
B7                 E
Look me in eye and put me in my place 


Verse 3:

            A                            B7
Because I'm feeling like you're fooling around with my heart 
E                 A
Oh but I can't be sure 
        A                       B7
Yeah, I feel like I'm stumbling around in the dark 
        E                   A
Meeting danger 'round every turn 

Chorus 3:

   F#m     E          D                          F
So tell me right now ‘cuz it's the least you can do
          A    A/G#  A/F#      D     E       A
I need to know right now just what I mean to you 
               A    A/G#  A/F#      D     E       A     E  A                   
Yeah I need to know right now just what I mean to you

Instead of the B7 in the verse, I think JTE uses a D#o7 (fully diminished 7th) - same harmonic function, but a bit more color: |-x-0-1-2-1-2-|

This same chord (though it could be 'spelled' differently, it's the same notes) also appears in the prechorus in place of where this contributor has an F. It's essentially a D7 with some voice leading:

F#m E D D#o7
"But right now I just feel the need to see this through"

The chorus also has complete chords where the above has only the bass moving down:

A C#7 F#m F#m7 D E A
"I need to know right now ... just what I mean to you"

This is such a great tune - one of my favorite JTE numbers.
