Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

This One  Paul McCartney

Did I [A]ever take you in my [F#m]arms,
look you in the [C#m]eye, tell you t[D9]hat I do?
Did I [A]ever could open up my h[E]eart,
and let you look ins[A]ide?
If I never d[E]id it, I was [A]only waiting [F#m]
for a better [Esus4-E]moment that didn't c[A]ome.
There never c[E]ould be a better m[A]oment [F#m]
than th[B]is [E]one, this [A]one.
The swan is gliding above the ocean,
a god is riding upon his back.
How calm the water and bright the rainbow
fade this one to black.

Did I ever touch you on the cheek,
say that you were mine, thank you for the smile?
Did I ever knock upon your door
and try to get inside?

If I never did it,...

The swan is gliding...

[D] What opport[E]unities did [A]we allow to [F#m]flow by
f[G]eeling like the t[E]iming wasn't q[A]uite right?
[D] What king of m[E]agic might have w[A]orked if we [F#m]stayed calm,
co[G]uldn't I have given you a b[E]etter life?

Did you ever take me in your arms,
look me in the eye, tell me that you do?
Did I ever open up my heart,
let you look inside?

If I never did it,...

The swan is gliding (The swan is gliding)
above the ocean (above the ocean),
a god is riding (a god is riding)
upon his back (Oh).
How calm the water (How calm the water)
and bright the rainbow (bright the rainbow)
fade this swan to black.

Replace the C9 with a C. It makes the song easier!
