And love will leave me at his feet

[Verse] 3:02
       Em
When I enter a room
       F#m        Bm       Em
I will only sit facing the door
     F#m              Bm
It's love I'm looking for
     Em
As I search every face
        F#m 
I start wondering
   Bm   A  | Em9 Em | A7add13/Bb  Bbdim7 |
Is this the place?


[Chorus]
    Gmaj7            D/F#    Em        Bm A
For love is a gunman, and no mercy has he
      Gmaj7           F#m     F#m7
He'll hunt you down until the day
Gmaj7         | A A/C# |
Death sets you free
Gmaj7            D/F#      Em        Bm  A 
Love is a gunman, and he's coming to town
       Gmaj7               F#m      F#m7
You'll meet his gaze, both barrels blaze
Gmaj7        | A A/C# |
  Staring you down
Gmaj7            D/F#    Em        Bm Asus2 
Love is a gunman, and no mercy has he
     Gmaj7             Gmaj7 Gmaj7
This time his sights
    Em            Asus2
Are fixed on me

[Verse]
        Em
You can run, you can hide
        F#m         Bm     Em
You can even saddle up and ride
     F#m            Bm
But love won't be denied
        Em
You can wear a disguise
       F#m             Bm A  | Em9 Em | A7add13/Bb  Bbdim7 |
But he isn't fooled by a- li-  bis
