Introduction on Verse
If [G] you were the [Em] woman and [C] I was the [D] man
Would I [G] send you yellow [Em] roses,
Would I [C] dare to kiss your [D7] hand?
In the [Em] morning would I ca[Am]ress you
As the [C] wind caresses the [D7] sand,
If [C] you were the [Am] woman and [D] I was the [G] man?
If [G] I was the [Em] heart and [C] you were the [D] head
Would you [G] think me very [Em] foolish
If one [C] day I decided to [D7] shed
These [Em] walls that sur[Am]round me
Just to [C] see where these feelings [D7] led,
If [C] I was the [Am] heart and [D] you were the [G] head?
[Am7] [Bm] [Cm] [Bm]
[Am7] [Bm] [Am] [G]
If [G] I was the [Em] woman and [C] you were the [D] man
Would I [G] laugh if you [Em] came to me
With your [C] heart in your [D7] hand
And said, I [Em] offer you this [Am] freely
And will [C] give you all that I [D7] can
Because [C] you are the [Am] woman
And [D] I am the [G] man?
