You Wear it Well

Rod Stewart

 DG
 I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
 AD
but to settle down and write you a line
 G
I been meaning to phone ya, but from Minnesota
 AD
 Hell, it's been a very long time

 A
You wear it well
 EmD/F#GA
little old fashioned but that's all right

 DG
 I suppose you're thinking I'll bet he's sinking
 AD
or he wouldn't get in touch with me
 G
For I ain't begging or losing my head
 AD
sure do want you to know

 A
That you wear it well
 EmD/F#GA
 There ain't a lady in a land so fine oh my

 D
 Remember those
 G
 basement parties, your brothers karate
 AD
 All day rock and roll shows
 G
the homesick blues and the radical views
 AD
 haven't left a mark on you

 A
You wear it well
 EmD/F#GA
little late on the time but I don't mind

 GA
But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
 GA
but I blew it without even trying
 G
Now I'm eating my heart out
 AD
 trying to get a letter through

 EmD/F#GA
 Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on 

 D
I want to write about the
 G
 birthday gown that I bought in town
 AD
as you sat down and cried on the stairs
You knew it didn't
 G
 cost the earth, but for what it's worth
 AD
you made me feel like a millionaire

 A
and you wear it well
 EmD/F#GA
 Madame Onassis got nothing on you

 DG
 Well my  coffee's cold, and I'm gettin told
 AD
that I gotta get back to work
 G
So when the sun goes low and you're home alone
 AD
  think of me and try not to laugh

 A
and I wear it well
 EmD/F#GA
 I won't object if you call collect

 DGA
But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
 GA
but I blew it without even trying
 G
Now I'm eating my heart out
 AD
 trying to get back to you

 EmD/F#GA
 Since that's been said, what's left to address?

"The little man knows all ..."

Hi. There's a slight error in the lyric there. It ought to be "I suppose you're thinking I bet he's sinking."

No, it's all about Aunt Betty ;)
