INTRO: A D A

#1.
A                   D
I keep waitin', for you to do, something I 
      A
don't like.
A                   D
I keep waitin', but everything you do, you 
       A
do all right.
E                       A         E
You give me love when I want you, you leave 
                A
me alone when I don't.
E                         A              D
Somethin' says I ought to leave you, but somethin' 
           Bm
tells me I won't.

CHORUS:
               E                A         D
Cause you keep tightening up on me, and I can't 
      Bm
break away.
               E                A          D
Cause you keep tightening up on me, with a sweet 
           Bm
love every day.
   C         G                  D
It scares me just a little bit, knowin' I'll never 
   A     E                  A
be free..woman, I'm at your mercy.
               D          E   D          E
Cause you keep tightening up, tightening up,
D          E     A
tightening up on me, yeah, ooh, yeah..la la la.


INTERLUDE: A D Dm A

#2.
A                           D
Your kind of love, makes it hard for a man to say 
A
no to you.
A              D                      A         
One look at me and I know I've got to go to you.
E             A        D    E                A
Even when I'm lookin' away, in my mind I can see you.
E                   A               D
I ain't sure that I love you, baby, but I know that 
  Bm
I need you.

CHORUS:
               E                A         D
Cause you keep tightening up on me, and I can't 
      Bm
break away.
               E                A          D
Cause you keep tightening up on me, with a sweet 
           Bm
love every day.
   C         G                  D
It scares me just a little bit, knowin' I'll never 
   A     E                  A
be free..woman, I'm at your mercy.
               D          E   D          E
Cause you keep tightening up, tightening up,
D          E     A
tightening up on me, yeah, ooh, yeah..la la la.
