Verse 1

A You know, sometimes, I don't know why B/A But this whole town just seems so A7Mhopeless B/A A I ain't really sure but it seems I remember thB/Ae good times A7M Were just a littleB/A bit more in focus A But when she puts her arms around meB/A A7M I can somehow rise aB/Above it A Yeah man when I got that little girl stB/Aanding right by my side A7M You know I can tell the wholeB/A wide world to shove it

Chorus

E Hey herAe comes my girl E Here Acomes my girl

Fm

B (normal B chord) Yeah and she looks so right She is all I need tonight

Verse 2

Every now and then I get down to the end of a day I'll just have to stop, ask myself, "What've I done?" It just seems so useless to have to work so hard And nothin' ever really seem to come from it And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever," And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it No, because this feels so good and so free and so right I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it CHORUS and then BREAK (see bottom)

Verse 3

Yeah every time it seems there ain't nothin' left no more I find myself havin' to reach out and grab hold of somethin' Yeah, I just catch myself wanderin', waitin', worryin' About some silly little things that don't add up to nothin' And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever," And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it No, because this feels so good and so free and so right I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it CHORUS then END

E E A B/A

Break

This break repeats three times, and the fourth time just continues the same vamp on the E and A strings, to VERSE 3.
  F#5                                                        The numbers

E-2--2--2-2-2-2-2--2--2---------------2-|                  "T" means
Thumb. The '^' means hammer on the first time, and pull off the second time. When pulling off, sort of flick the B string so it rings clearly. Also, the E in the CHORUS can be played with an E9 in the middle:

E E9
