E-------------------|--------------|-------------------|-------------------
VERSE 1:
[A]  You know, sometimes, I don't know why
  [B/A]But this whole town just seems so [Amaj7]hopeless[B/A]
[A]  I ain't really sure but it seems I remember [B/A]the good times
  Were just a little bit [Amaj7]more in focus[B/A]
[A]  But when she puts her arms around [B/A]me
  I can[Amaj7] somehow rise above [B/A]it
[A]  Yeah man when I got that little girl [B/A]standing right by my side
  You know I can [Amaj7]tell the whole wide world to [B/A]shove it
CHORUS:
  Hey here comes my [E]girl   [A]     Here comes my [E]girl[A]
F#m B (normal B chord)
Yeah and she looks so right She is all I need tonight
VERSE 2:Every now and then I get down to the end of a day
I'll just have to stop, ask myself, "What've I done?"
It just seems so useless to have to work so hard
And nothin' ever really seem to come from it
And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it
CHORUS and then BREAK (see bottom)
VERSE 3:Yeah every time it seems there ain't nothin' left no more
I find myself havin' to reach out and grab hold of somethin'
Yeah, I just catch myself wanderin', waitin', worryin'
About some silly little things that don't add up to nothin'
And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it
CHORUS then END
