suggest and use the typed shapes shown below:

A5   = x022xx      E      = 022100
G *  = 3200xx      Am7    = x02010
F6/9 = 1300xx      Fm *   = x-x-x-10-9-8
F    = 133211      G7/F * = x-x-x-10-8-7
G    = 355433      Fm     = 133111
Am   = 577555      G7/F   = xx3433

Optionally, the F, G, Am, Am7, E could be played as
power chords instead:

or as the lower sustained chords.

Love----- of two  is  one,

Here-----, but now they're gone,
  F             G        Am
Came her last night of sadness,
             F         E         Am    G
And it was clear she couldn't go on,
           F       G             Am            G
Then the door was open, and the wind appeared,
       F      G             Am          G
The candles blew, and then disappeared,
       F      G             Am          G            F
The curtains flew, and then he appeared!
                               (Saying don't be a - fraid!)


[Chorus]
  G       Am             G      F
Come on, baby, (And she had no fear!)
G           Am                       G         F
    And she ran to him, (Then they started to fly!)
              G            Am
They looked backwards and said goodbye,
               G         F
(She had be - come like they are!)
          G        Am                  G         F
She had taken his hand, (She had be - come like they are!)
  G       Am           G         F     G
Come on, baby! (Don't fear the reaper!)
