				"Cherish"
			     (Terry Kirkman)

Jim Yester, in the liner notes to the Japanese _From The Original Master
Tapes_ CD (Warner/Pioneer WPCP-3536):

  One of the main signature pieces for the group, this follow-up release
  to "Along Comes Mary" rose to #1 nationally, and remained there for over
  three months.  [Maybe in Japan; in the US, it was #1 for three weeks.]
  This song was a result of Terry Kirkman's fascination with the word
  "Cherish".  The group's music publisher fought the title, believing it
  was too archaic.  Arranged by the group, this song went through three
  completely different productions before being recorded.  At the time, it
  was not considered for release as a single record.  Fortunately, a disc
  jockey in Ohio took it upon himself to cause a regional breakout.


Intro:

	Fmaj9 [xx7988]  Ebmaj9 [xx5766]

	Fmaj9      Ebmaj9
	Bum - bum - bum - bum


Verse 1:

	Fmaj9                Gm7/C [xx5766]   Ebmaj9   Gm7/C
	Cherish is the word I use to describe
	        Fmaj9                      Gm7/C              Ebmaj9 Gm7/C
	All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
	               Am7                                    Bb
	You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
	               Am7                                      Bb
	You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
	               Am7
	You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
	Bb       Am7  Gm7
	Mold you into someone who could
	Bb                               C   [hammer-on: xx555x->xx756x]
	Cherish me as much as I cherish you

Verse 2:

	Perish is the word that more than applies
	To the hope in my heart each time I realize
	That I am not gonna be the one to share your dreams
	That I am not gonna be the one to share your schemes
	That I am not gonna be the one to share what
	Seems to be the life that you could
	Cherish as much as I do yours

Bridge:

	         Gm7                    C
	Oh I'm beginning to think that man has never found
	     Am7                           E
	The words that could make you want me
	               C                        F             Dm/C
	That have the right amount of letters, just the right sound
	           Bb             Gm7
	That could make you hear, make you see
	              Eb                   C
	That you are drivin' me out of my mind

	                 Fmaj9                     C
	Oh I could say I need you  but then you'd realize
	       Cm                     D9
	That I want you  just like a thousand other guys
	                Bb                       C
	Who'd say they loved you   With all the rest of their lies
	               Dm            /Bb        /A         /G
	When all they wanted was to touch your face, your hands
	                    Eb   C    D7
	And gaze into your eyes

Verse 3 [words same as verse 1, chord progression completely different]:

	G                      C               Bb    C

	G                            C                           Bb    C
	All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
	               Bm7                                    C
	You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
	               Bm7                                      C
	You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
	               Bm7
	You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
	C        Bm7   Am7
	Mold you into someone who could
	F                                D
	Cherish me as much as I cherish you

Coda:

	[N.C.] D        G  C    D
	And I do       cherish you
	 G  C  D        G  C    D
