About this tab version
My version is in the original recording's key of Eb, and with the capo on VI, it makes it easy to play the chords and the melody without leaving first position. The chord voicings I use sound much closer to the recording than the other tabs I have seen. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Chord arrangement

Had to learn this for a country band very last minute and came up with this arrangement that correctly 
matches the recorded version. Enjoy!


Capo VI


Chord voicings I use:

  Am   Dm6   G   Dm7  Em   F   C/E   Asus4   A  Fmaj7  G/F   C  G/B  Am7

e--0----0----3----1----0---1----0------0-----0----0----------0--------0--|
B--1----3----0----1----0---1----1------3-----2----1-----3----1---3----1--|
G--2----2----0----2----0---2----0------2-----2----2-----0----0---0----0--|
D--2----0----0----0----2---3----2------2-----2----3-----0----2---0----2--|
A--0---------x---------2---3----3------0-----0----x-----x----3---2----0--|
E------------3---------0---1----0-----------------1-----1----------------|



If you wanna get really fancy, the capo makes it easy to emulate the verse vocal/piano part fingerstyle 
while still keeping the bass notes of the chords like this:

e------0----------------------------------------|
B-----1------------0---1-------------0---1------|
G----2---------2-----------------2--------------|
D---2----2---2---2---2---2-----2---2---2---2----|
A--0-------------------------0------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------|
 
   Am                   Dm6                 G             Am
e--0----------------0---0---------------------------------0--------|
B---------0---1----------------3---3---1----0--1----3--1-----------|
G-----2------------------------------------------------------------| as an example
D-------2---2----2------0-------------------------------------2----|
A--0------------------------------------------------------0--------|
E-------------------------------------------3----------------------|
  La-dy       I'm your knight  in shi-ning ar-mor  and I love you...     



Verse:

Am             Dm6               G           Am
Lady, I'm your knight in shining armor and I love you

         Dm6            D           Am
You have made me what I am and I am yours

Am               Dm6            G             Am
My love, there's so many ways I want to say I love you

       Dm6            G                Am
Let me hold you in my arms forever more


Pre-Chorus:

         Dm7      Em             Am
You have gone and made me such a fool

F        C/E          Asus4  A
  I'm so lost in your love

    Dm7    Em     Am
And oh, we belong together

F           C/E           Asus4        A
  Won't you believe in my song


Verse:

Am         Dm6            G                 Am
Lady, for so many years I thought I'd never find you

         Dm6          G                Am
You have come into my life and made me whole

Am             Dm6             G              Am
Forever let me wake to see you each and every morning

       Dm6              G            Am
Let me hear you whisper softly in my ear


Pre-Chorus:

      Dm7        Em              Am
In my eyes I see no one else but you

F            C/E           Asus4   A
  There's no other love like our love
    
    Dm7               Em              Am
And yes, oh yes, I'll always want you near me

F                  C/E        Asus4        A
   I've waited for you for so long


Chorus:

Fmaj7   G/F                  C    G/B    Am7   G
Lady,        your love's the only love I need

    Fmaj7     G/F              C           G/B  Am7  G
And beside me       is where I want you to be

        Fmaj7   G/F                    C      G/B    Am7   G     
'Cause, my love,     there's somethin' I want you to know

           F    C/E   Dm7   G            Am
You're the love of my life,    you're my lady


Am - Dm6 - G - Am
