Intro: G D C D x2

[G]Not much of a [D]man, but [C]still I am a [D]man,
And [G]you bring out [D]something in[C]side [D]me,
A [G]perfect little [D]diamond, a [C]fragile little [D]fire,
You're [Em]everything good in the [Bm]world, to [D]me.

[G]I [D]want to pro[C]tect you, (I [D]want to pro[G]tect you)
I [D]want you to [C]be safe and [D]sound,
At [G]night in this [D]world,
Such a [Cadd9]delicate girl needs some[Am]one,
To look out for the [D]wolves,
I want to pro[G]tect you.  [D]  [C]  [D]
I [G]say some stupid [D]shit, don't [C]mean a word of [D]it,
You [G]know I got a [D]lot of love in[C]side [D]me,
This [G]world's an ugly [D]place for [C]such a pretty [D]face
They're [Em]comin' at you from all [Bm]sides[D] but they gotta get through me.
[G]I [D]want to pro[C]tect you, (I [D]want to pro[G]tect you)
I [D]want you to [C]be safe and [D]sound,
At [G]night in this [D]world,
Such a [Cadd9]delicate girl needs some[Am]one,
To look out for the [D]wolves,
I want to pro[G]tect you.  [D]  [C]  [D]
Not [G]many under[D]stand, but [C]I'm your biggest [D]fan,
[G]The savage [D]fools cannot ap[C]preci[D]ate,
The [G]miracle of [D]you, [C]how could it be [D]true,
You're [Em]everything good in the [Bm]world.[D]
[G]I [D]want to pro[C]tect you, (I [D]want to pro[G]tect you)
I [D]want you to [C]be safe and [D]sound,
At [G]night in this [D]world,
Such a [Cadd9]delicate girl needs some[Am]one,
To look out for the [D]wolves,
I want to pro[G]tect you.  [D]  [C]  [D]
Now, the eagle eyed folks out there will have noticed that there's an F
major and a D minor chord in the chart, but not the tab. Well, that's
because I assumed that you folks at home don't have a capo – if this is the
case, go get one, they're cool. Anyways, this song is actually played with
the capo on fret 7, in which case the order of chords is something like this:

Intro/Verse/Chorus: C G F G
Pre-Chorus: Am Em G
Pre-Verse: C G F Dm G

Play around with this song, have some fun, play Cadd9 instead of C a few
times, add a Dsus4 in during the long Ds, whatever. Peace, love, and
chocolate.
