Verse/Chorus:

Em                C         B7
Just beginning to take that love away
Em                C         B7
Just beginning to take that love away
Em                C         B7  Em    C    B7     Em   C  B7
In a minute I’ll wash that love awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

Em                C         B7
Even now we remember what we used to say
Em                C         B7
Takes a minute to wash that love away
Em                C         B7     Em   C   B7    Em   C  B7
Take a clean break: wash that love awaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

Em                C         B7
Even now we remember what we used to say
Em                C         B7
Even now we remember what we used to say
Em                C         B7         Em  C  B7  Em   C  B7
We’ll be together if we wash that love awaaaaaaaaaay

C D
  That’s true
Am                 Gm Am
And it’s taken
Am                 Gm Am
To extreme extent

  That’s why we
C D

F
Take that love away

Take that love away

Take that love away
