[Verse 1]
G7/B   C           G/B    Am                    Am/G
When a man loves a woman,    can't keep his mind on nothing else,
F   F/A           G7/B    G7/D         C                G
   He'd trade the world,  for a good thing he's found,
G7/B        C            G/B     Am             Am/G
 If she is bad, he can't see it,      she can do no wrong,
F   F/A         G7/B          G7/D         C             G
   Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down!


[Verse 2]
G7/B          C           G/B    Am                      Am/G
      When a man loves a woman,      he'd spend his very last dime,
F   F/A      G7/B  G7/D            C         G
   Trying to hold    ...on to what he needs,
G7/B          C           G/B     Am                       Am/G
He'd give up all of his comforts,     and sleep out in the rain,
F  F/A           G7/B          G7/D     C            C7
    If she said that's the way   ...it ought to be!


[Bridge]
F                               C    C7
    Well, this man loves you, woman,
C7 B7 Bb7 F                            C    C7
              I gave you everything I had,
C7 B7 Bb7 F                         C          C/B   Am  Asus2 Am
              Trying to hold on to your high -class love,

Ba - by,           plea - se, don -'t treat me bad-------!


[Verse 3]
        C           G/B    Am           Am/G
When a man loves a woman,      down deep in his soul,
F  F/A           G7/B      G7/D      C    G
    She can bring him such    ....misery,
G7/B             C               G/B   Am              Am/G
     If she is playing him for a fool,    he's the last one to know,
F   F/A       G7/B      G7/D        C    G
   Loving eyes   ...can   ...never see!


[Verse 4]
G7/B         C            G/B    Am               Am/G
      When a man loves a woman,      he can do her no wrong,
F  F/A           G7/B    G7/D        C     G
    He can never hold ...some other girl,
G7/B          C           G/B    Am                Am/G
 Yes, when a man loves a woman,      I know exactly how he feels,
F    F/A         G7/B   G7/D         C          G
   'Cause, baby, baby,     ...you're my world!

[Coda]
G7/B         C           G/B     Am                 Am/G
      When a man loves a woman,      I know exactly how he feels,
F   F/A          G7/B    G7/D                    C
   'Cause, baby, baby,         you're--- my--- world----!
