 Woman,            I can hardly express

And woman, I will try to express
 CAmDmG
 my inner feelings and thankfulness
 FDm7EmGsus4G
 for showing me the meaning of success.

 Woman,   I know you understand
 CAmDmG
 the little child inside the man.

And woman,   hold me close to your heart.
 CAmDmG
 However distant, don't keep us apart.

 After all it is written in the stars.

Try changing to the key of D.

I like it much better in G, but I like C instead of Am7 (F instead of Dm7 if in C) as the last chord of the first  line of each stanza (and the third line of the first two).  There's a nice little bass run (g-a-b-c if in G) in there.
darvon (report comment to admin):
Also, the last lines of the (half verse) tag are:  I love you, yeah yeah, now and forever.  Forget the doo doo doos.  In G, the Gmaj7 suggested is  xx5432, but xx4002 is easier on the fingers and sounds just fine.  OK, so there's a missing D.  I don't much care. What a nice song!

You can change the KEY by pressing Transpose.

G6  Or G will do just fine!

Also......try modulating the last verse up a step....G becomes A, A becomes B, etc. etc......Nice job, Nice song.
minstrelbear (report comment to admin):
The original is in D and then modulates up a half-step to E flat for the last verse.
