    I never meant to cause you any sorrow
Dsus4                              Cadd9
    I never meant to cause you any pain
G                                     Em7
    I only wanted to one time see you laughing
      Dsus4                                         G
    I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

   Purple rain purple rain
Dsus4                                             G
   I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain


[VERSE]

                                     G       Em7           
   I never wanted to be your weekend lover
Dsus4                               Cadd9
   I only wanted to be some kind of friend
G                                    Em7
   Baby I could never steal you from another
Dsus4                                      G
   It’s such a shame our friendship had to end

   I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain

[VERSE]

                                           G        Em7
   Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changin'
Dsus4                                       Cadd9
   It's time we all reach out for something new (that means you too)
G                             Em7        
   You say you want a leader,   but you can't seem to make up your mind
                                Dsus4                                      G
   And I think you better close it and let me guide you to the purple rain


[CHORUS]
                      Cadd9
   Purple rain purple rain
Cadd9                 G
   Purple rain purple rain
Em7                   Dsus4
   Purple rain purple rain
                         Dsus4                                     G
   I only want to see you, only want to see you in the purple rain

This is a song which I think still calls for playing some of the solos that made Prince so amazing, but pretty cool. So much at the end there.
