[Verse 1]
    Cadd9                Fmaj7        Dm9          F/G       Am7
...nothing you can do to turn me away,    nothing anyone can say,
       F#m7    B7            Em7
You're with me now, and, as long as you stay,
A7sus4                          Dmaj7
Loving you's the right thing to do---------,
                               (Loving you's the right thing!)
 Dm7             Fmaj7 Dm7/G

...know you've had some bad luck with ladies before,
      Dm9               F/G         Am7
They drove you, or you drove them, crazy,
               F#m7       B7                Em7
But, more im - portant is I know you're the one, and I'm sure...

That the river flowed right to my door,
 Dm7     Dm7               G/C      G/C
Making me... just a little too free,

But now the river doesn't seem to stop here any - more!

Cadd9                        Fmaj7
Hold me in your hands like a bunch of flowers,
              Dm9              F/G             Am7
(A bunch of flowers!)  Set me moving to your sweetest song,
      F#m7         B7              Em7
And I know what I...   think I've known all along,
A7sus4                          Dmaj7
Loving you's the right thing to do---------,
                               (Loving you's the right thing!)


[Verse 4]
 Dm7             Fmaj7 Dm7/G                                 Cadd9

                   ^     ^
Fmaj7                       Cmaj7
       Is the right thing to do,
Fmaj7                               Cadd9
       Nothing you can ever do will turn me away from you,
  Fmaj7               Cmaj7
I love you now, and I love you now,
Fmaj7                            Cadd9
 Even though you're ten thousand miles away,
     Fmaj7                   Cmaj7
I'll love you tomorrow, as I love you today,

I had been frustrated, correcting another tab of this song, until I found your version. This is great! Thank you for posting!
