[1st VERSE]

Gbm  A  D  A     It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside
Gbm  A  D  A     I’m not one of those who can easily hide, I
Gbm  A  D  A     Don’t have much money but boy, if I did
Gbm  Bm D  E   I’d buy a big house where we both could live

Gbm  A  D  A     If I was a sculptor but then again, no
Gbm  A  D  A     Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
Gbm  A  D  A     Oh, I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
Gbm  Bm D  E    My gift is my song and this one’s for you

[BRIDGE]

Bm  A  Bm  Gbm
Bm  A  Bm  A
Bm  A  Bm  Gbm
Bm  A  Bm Gbm …E    

[CHORUS]

E  Gbm  Bm  D   And you can tell everybody this is your song
E  Gbm  Bm  D   It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
Gbm               I hope you don’t mind
A                     I hope you don’t mind
=>B  D                 That I put down in words
A   Bm  D  A  How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

[2nd VERSE]

Gbm  A  D  A    I sat on the roof and kicked up the moss
Gbm  A  D  A    Well, a few of the verses, well, they’ve got me quite cross
Gbm  A  D  A    But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
Gbm  Bm D  E    It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

Gbm  A  D  A    So excuse me forgetting but these things, I do
Gbm  A  D  A    You see, I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Gbm  A  D  A    Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean
Gbm  Bm D  E   Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

[CHORUS]

E  Gbm  Bm  D   And you can tell everybody this is your song
E  Gbm  Bm  D   It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
Gbm               I hope you don’t mind
A                     I hope you don’t mind
=>B  D                 That I put down in words
A   Bm  D  A  How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

Gbm               I hope you don’t mind
A                     I hope you don’t mind
=>B  D                 That I put down in words
A   Bm  D  A  How wonderful life is while you’re in the world


 

My pick for the most beautiful version;  upon my first hearing it made me think of my baby son and I cried with joy and gratitude.  Still feel that way.  This one’s for you Gavin.
