TENDER WHEN I WANT TO BE (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
------------------------------------------------
[Actually in F; capo 5.  Each chord is half a measure, except two chords
 joined by a hyphen are a half-measure total.]
[In MCC's 1995 tour, she performed a version of this song that was straight
 rock 'n' roll.  That version had pretty much the same chords, except the
 bridge (the part with "I never would have known it...") used Dm Dm Em Em
 rather than Dm7 G C C/E.]

C    C    F    F     G    G    C    F - G
[intro]
C    C    F    F     G    G    C - Csus  C [stop]
[intro]

                      C              C
I have a heart that's proud, you bet
                    F           F
I have a mind that won't forget
                          G           G                        C     F - G
That I have arms that are strong yet tender when they wanna be

                              C             C
Well you can be the will that finds the way
                       F             F
You can be the one who saves the day
                             G             G                    C    C
But show me tender when it's time to say exactly how it oughta be

                     Dm7               G
And I never would've known it, darlin'
              C             C/E
If I hadn't known about you
                      F            F            G         G [stop]
You said everyone can be a rock and roll like a river too

Well something happens when you find someone
Makes you feel like you can do no wrong
You don't have to take the whole world on, just be tender when you wanna be

               C    C    F    F    G    G    C    F - G
Sha la la la laa laaa [instrumental]
C   C   F   F   G   G   C   C
[baritone guitar solo]

And I never would've known it baby
If I hadn't known about you
You said everyone can be a rock and roll like a river too

So let the waters carry us away
Wave goodbye to the old parade
Baby, when we're unafraid to be tender when we wanna be

All the waters wash our cares away
All that we can see are better days
Don't ever let me hesitate to be tender when I wanna be

                C        F   -   G     C        F - G
Sha la la la la laa laaa, sha la la la laa laaa
                C        F - G    C    C.
Sha la la la la laa laaa
