Next To You - The Police

The intro (and after each line in the verse) is series of quick double hits of the D, A
E chords.  I marked this as D-D-A-A-E-E.  These sound fine as open chords.  While the
is sung, you can strum the top three strings of an E chord.  For the chorus, play C#m, D 
E as barre chords.  Right after the chorus, Andy Summers does a barre chord slide from
to E three times - denoted as D/E.  This part ain't easy! - stodman

Intro: D-D-A-A-E-E

I can't stand it for another day [D-D-A-A-E-E]
When you live so many miles away [D-D-A-A-E-E]
Nothing here is gonna make me stay [D-D-A-A-E-E]
You took me over let me find a way [D-D-A-A-E-E]

I sold my house I sold my motor, too [D-D-A-A-E-E]
All I want is to be next to you [D-D-A-A-E-E]
I'd rob a bank maybe steal a plane [D-D-A-A-E-E]
You took me over think I'm goin' insane

C#m            D  E
    What can I do    all I want is to be next to you
C#m            D  E                                   D-D-A-A-E-E
    What can I do    all I want is to be next to you

I've had a thousand girls or maybe more [D-D-A-A-E-E]
But I've never felt like this before [D-D-A-A-E-E]
But I just don't know what's come over me [D-D-A-A-E-E]
You took me over, take a look at me

C#m            D  E
    What can I do    all I want is to be next to you
C#m            D  E
    What can I do    all I want is to be next to you

D
    All I want is to be next to you
E
    All I want is to be next to you
D
    All I want is to be next to you

[solo]

So many times I used to give a sign [D/E D/E D/E D-D-A-A-E-E]
Got this feeling, gonna lose my mind [D/E D/E D/E D-D-A-A-E-E]
When all it is is just a love affair [D/E D/E D/E D-D-A-A-E-E]
You took me over baby, take me there [D/E D/E D/E]

C#m            D  E
    What can I do    all I want is to be next to you
C#m            D  E
    What can I do    all I want is to be next to you

            D
(What can I do) All I want is to be next to you
            E
(What can I do) All I want is to be next to you
            D
(What can I do) All I want is to be next to you

Feels like the wrong key to me (E maybe), but works.
