gold to me

Ben Harper

 A
you look like gold 
you make me want to say
with all the joy you bring
you look like gold
Like the rays down from the sun
when a new day has just begun
you look like gold
 D#
I've been fooled before
 GF
 but now I know
 GD#
 I've made the mistake in the past
 GF
 but now I know the difference
 GA
 from gold and brass
not the kind of gold that you wear
but the kind that can feel my care
you look like gold
some shine when the day is new
but fade when the day is through
but you look like gold
I've been wrong before
but now I know
I've made mistakes in the past
but now I know the difference
from gold and brass
solo:
(You really need to play on an high action guitar with heavy strings
in order to avoid pull-of buzzes with the slide...)

you look like gold to me
and I'm down on bending knees
you look like gold
and I just want you to know
to me you mean so much more
than all the gold
you look like gold

And here's my poor attempt to transcribe the Bass part, which is
pretty much the same as Otis Redding's 'My Girl' (Cool Song!)
