[intro]
Ab2     Ab2       Db2
one two and three four  play 2x

[verse 1]

Ab2     Db2                    Ab2        Db2
A-man - da, I know what you're thinking,  
Ab2     Db2                   Cm7 Eb
    You and I have much to say,  
Ab2          Db2
  And you've been making me crazy,
Ab2            Db2
Trying to understand
Ab2        Db2                    Cm7 Eb
  But it's impossible at your age   
         Cm7         Eb/G       Fm7
I know I said I'll always try,  
           Bbm7             Cm7     Db2       Eb
But you're going to bed alone   again   tonight
        Ebm7                 Absus Ab7           Fm7 Cm7 Db2
And you lie there in the dark   and wonder why     
Fm7 Cm7 Db2

[chorus]
                Ab2          Fm7
I did it for you and the boys
            Db2                  Eb
Because love should teach you joy
               Fm7
And not the imitation,
          Bbm7                         Db2
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
Eb Db2           Fm7         Cm7
 I did it for you, and for me,
           Bbm7            Eb/G
And because I still believe,
          Edim7 Fm7
There's only one thing,
        Cm7
You can never give up,
      Bbm7
Never compromise on,
               Db/Eb                        Ab2 Db2
And that's the real thing you need in love.     x4

[verse 2]
Ab2       Db2                  Ab2  Db2
You're so afraid your life is over, 
    Ab2       Db2                           Cm7 Eb
And nothing I can say could change your mind. 
Ab2          Db2
  How can anybody be so selfish,
    Ab2             Db2
And treat you all so cruel,
Ab2    Db2                     Cm7 Eb
 Go on and scream at me and cry   
            Cm7        Eb/G    Fm7
I'll always hold you in my soul,
        Bbm7             Cm7     Db2   Eb
And I'm never gonna leave you all alone
         Ebm7              Absus Ab7       Fm7 Cm7 Db2
But your daddy doesn't live here anymore.    
Fm7 Cm7 Db2

[chorus]
                Ab2          Fm7
I did it for you and the boys
            Db2                  Eb
Because love should teach you joy
               Fm7
And not the imitation,
          Bbm7                         Db2
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
Eb Db2           Fm7         Cm7
 I did it for you, and for me,
           Bbm7            Eb/G
And because I still believe,
          Edim7 Fm7
There's only one thing,
        Cm7
You can never give up,
      Bbm7
Never compromise on,
               Db/Eb                        Ab2
And that's the real thing you need in love. 

Dm7               Dm7/G  G9      Am
Everybody's got a boat upon the ocean,
Dm7                 Dm7/G   G9        C
But not everybody's sailing out to sea,
             C/B               Am7
And is there someone there for me?
    C/G        D7/F#
I'm ready to believe.   

[Instrumental]

[chorus]
                A2           F#m7
I did it for you and the boys
            D2                   E
Because love should teach you joy
               F#m7
And not the imitation,
          Bm7                          D2
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
E  D2            F#m7        C#m7
 I did it for you, and for me,
           Bm7             E7/G#
And because I still believe,
          Fdim7 F#m7
There's only one thing,
        C#m7
You can never give up,
      Bm7
Never compromise on,
               D/E                          A2 D2  A2  D2
And that's the real thing you need in love.
