Title: "You Are The Best Thing"

Listen to the song for rhythm. This was for a solo acoustic player, 
but it still translates well to a full band.

[Verse 1]
A E F#m                 D
Baby,   it’s been a long day, baby.
A E F#m              D
        Things ain’t going my way
            A    E     F#m
you know I need you here
               E -----
here to clear my mind
        E -----
all of the time

A E F#m                  D
And baby, the way you move me its crazy.
A E F#m                   D
       it’s like you see right through me, you make it
A         E F#m       D                  E -----

you are the best thing
A    C#7     F#m         D
you are the best thing
A    C#7     F#m        E
you are the best thing
D          E        A
   ever happened to me

[Verse 2]
(Repeat that pattern half the length of the first verse)

Baby, We’ve come a long way, baby.
you know, I hope and I pray that you believe me
When I say this love will never fade away

oh because
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
you are the best thing
ever happened to me

(The bridge below has two hits on the NOTES E and F before the F#M)

F#m                            C#m
    Now both of us have known love before,
F#m                            C#m
    To come on up promising, like the spring,
just walk on out the door
Our hearts are strong and our hearts are kind
D                          E
well, let me tell you exactly what is on my mind.

I'm not sure why you would capo on 1 though... Doesn't help anything. Just start your first chord on Bb. In other words verse would go Bb-F-Gm-F.

Actually without a capo the progression would be Bb-F-Gm-Eb.
