Thing Called Love, by John Hiatt

note: this is in the key of ??, as played by Bonnie Raitt on Nick of Time,
as opposed to the key of ??????, as Hiatt plays it on Bring the Family.

The opening/main riff is:


Don't have to humble yourself to me, I ain't your judge or your king
C     G                                  A
Baby,   you know you ain't no Queen of Sheba
We may not even have our dignity, this could be just a powerful thing,
C             G                          A         A G F
Baby we can choose you know we ain't no amoeba

F                      Bb            C
Are you ready for this thing called love
F                              Bb            C
Don't come from you and me, it comes from up above
F                     Bb            C
I ain't no porcupine, take off your kid gloves,
F                      Bb           G
Are you ready for this thing called love

You ain't some icon carved out of soap, sent down here to clean up my 
Baby, I ain't your Prince Charming,
Now we can live in fear or act out of hope, for some kind of peaceful
Baby, don't know why the cry of love is so alarming


Ugly ducklings don't turn into swans, 
And glide off down the lake,
Whether your sunglasses are off or on,
You only see the world you make,

Before the laws of God and man I took you for my wife
To love, honour, cherish and obey,
Now I didn't have no plans to live this kind of life
It just worked out that way


this won't be exactly correct, but I think it's pretty close.
