[Verse 1]

G             Em
Oh she may be weary
      C                D
Those young girls they do get weary
G            F               E7    e-0-------|
Wearing that same old shaggy dress b---3-1-0-|
Am                   D
But when she gets weary

[Verse 2]

G            Em
I know she's waiting
C      D
Just anticipating
    G                 F              E7
The thing that you'll never never possess
             Am                D
no no no but while she's there waiting
                               G    C  G
Try just a little bit of tenderness

Now it's not just          sentimental no

But she has her griefs and cares
C                  /D /D#         B
But the soft words       they are spoke so gentle
yeah yeah yeah
       F        E7
And it makes it easier to bear


[Verse 4]

C              G
Oh she won't regret it, no no
Em                    C        D
Them young girls they don't forget it
G             F          E7
Love is their whole happiness
yeah yeah yeah
Am             D
But its all so easy

Some of the lyrics is not correct. In the chorus he sings:
"...Tenderness,
To tease her
To squeze her"
And some of the chords ain't right...
