SHUT UP AND KISS ME (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
-------------------------------------------
[Each chord is half a measure.]
[The acoustic guitar is actually in E, with a capo on the 5th fret.
 The electric is in A, no capo.  These chords assume no capo.]

n.c. n.c. n.c. n.c.    n.c. n.c. n.c. n.c.
[intro (drums)]
E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A
[intro]

E               D            A       A
  Don't mean to get a little forward with you
E               D            A         A
  Don't mean to get ahead of where we are
E               D            A        A
  Don't mean to act a little nervous around you
      E             D         A        A
  I'm just a little nervous about my heart

D             E             A         A
  It's been a while since I felt this feeling
D           E          A       A
  That everything that you do gives me
D               E          A          A
  It's been too long since somebody whispered
D      E   A            A
  Woooooo, shut up and kiss me
E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A
[instrumental]

Didn't expect to be in this position
Didn't expect to have to rise above
My reputation for cynicism
I've been a jaded lady when it comes to love

But, oh baby, just to feel this feeling
That everything that you do gives me
It's been too long since somebody whispered
Woooooo, shut up and kiss me

B         B                   B       B
  There's something 'bout the silent type
D            E      A   A
  Attracting me to you
B     B               B            B
  All business, baby, none of the hype
D         D          D       E   D   A   A     E  D  A  A
  That no talker can live up too-ooo-ooo [guitar solo]
E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A
[guitar solo]
E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A    E  D  A  A   E  D  A  A
[piano solo]

Come closer baby, I can't hear you
Just another whisper, if you please
Don't worry 'bout the details, darling
You've got the kind of mind I love to read

Talk is cheap and baby, time's expensive
So why wait another minute more
Life's too short to be so apprehensive
Love's as much the symptom, darling, as the cure

Oh, baby, when I feel this feeling
It's like the genuine voodoo hits me
It's been too long since somebody whispered
Wooooo, hooooo

Oh baby, I can feel this feeling
That everything that you do gives me
It's been too long since somebody whispered
Woooooo, shut up and kiss me
Wooooo, hooooo
Woooooo, shut up and kiss me
