G

   Am                  Bm                     Am
He said, Sara Jane was much too plain..so, he left her alone
   G

awoke one morning and he couldn't speak..the folk singer.
    C#                      Cm                 A#m

Sara Jane did, too.
             A#m           Cm           A#m      D#   G#

Oh, the power of love can do strange things, cause love has made
