We were at a revel with some rebels on a hot night
F                                          F/A
Laughin’ at my sister as she’s dazzling the room
Bbsus2
Then you walked in and my heart went “Boom!”
F
Tryin’ to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom
Bbsus2
Everybody’s dancin’ and the band’s top volume
F                                 F/A
Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine
Bbsus2
Grab my sister, and whisper, 
                  G/C
“Yo, this one’s mine.”
Dm7                                             F
Ooh, My sister made her way across the room to you
F                                   F9/A       Bbsus2
And I got nervous, thinking “What’s she gonna do?”
                                 Bbsus2/D           Csus
She grabbed you by the arm, I’m thinkin’ “I’m through”
Csus
Then you look back at me and suddenly I’m

Down for the count

F (spoken) 
Where are you taking me?
I’m about to change your life
Then by all means, lead the way
Elizabeth Schuyler. It’s a pleasure to meet you
Schuyler?
My sister
Thank you for all your service
If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it
I’ll leave you to it

F
One week later I’m writin’ a letter nightly
Bbsus2
Now my life gets better, every letter that you write me
F                                              F/A
Laughin’ at my sister, cuz she wants to form a harem
Bb
I’m just sayin’, if you really loved me, you would share him
F
Two weeks later in the living room stressing’
Bbsus2
My father’s stone-faced while you’re asking for his blessing’
F                                  F/A
I’m dying inside, as you wine and dine and I'm 
 Bbsus2                                              G/C
Tryin’ not to cry ‘cause there’s nothing that your mind can’t
Dm7
Do, my father makes his way across the room to
F                          F9/A
You I panic for a second, thinking we're

“Be true” and you turn back to me, smiling, and I’m

F 
Eliza, I don’t have a dollar to my name
Bb
An acre of land, a troop to command, a dollop of fame
F
All I have’s my honor, a tolerance for pain
Bb
A couple of college credits and my top-notch brain
F
Insane, your family brings out a different side of me
Bb
Peggy confides in me, Angelica tried to take a bite of me

No stress, my love for you is never in doubt

We’ll get a little place in Harlem and we’ll figure it out
Dm7
I’ve been livin’ without a family since I was a child
F                                                  F9/A

Bbsus2                                       Bbsus2/D

I've been playing this using these chord names but capo at fret #3 and you can use the G pedal chords (same chord shapes as in Wonderwall) Great work, much better than the version 1 on this site
