Berkeley Woman  John Denver

1) I s[G]aw a Berkeley woman  si[C]ttin' in her rockin chai[G]r
2) 'Twas hard to believe what my eyes showed me then
3) Well, I fin'ly realized there was hunger in my stare
4) So with anger on her face and hurt in her eyes
5) I guess she's prob'ly right, Oh, I guess I'm prob'ly wrong
6) Well, now you've heard my story as plain as the light of day

1) [G]A dulcimer in her lap, a fe[D7]ather in her hair
2) The color in her cheeks was just her natural skin
3) In my mind I was swayin' with the woman in the rockin' chair
4) She scratched me and & clawed me, she screamed & she cried
5) I guess she's not too far away, she hasn't been gone very long
6) It's hard to feel guilty for lovin' the ladies

1) Her br[G]easts swayed freely
2) She wore no makeup
3) But the lady I was livin' with
4) Oh you don't give me near
5) And I guess we could get together
6) That's all I gotta say (To chorus)

1) With the rh[C]ythm of the rockin' chai[G]r
2) To make her look that way
3) Was standin' right by my side
4) All the lovin' that you should
5) And try this one more time

1) She was a si[C]ttin' and a singin' and a s[G]wayin'
2) She was a natural mama with the red cheeks
3) She saw my stare and she saw the hunger
4) Yet you're ready to go and lay with her
5) But I know the wanderlust would come again

1) Her ch[D7]eeks were red I dec[G]lare
2) What more can I say?
3) And Lord it made her cry
4) You're just no damn good!
5) She'd only wind up cryin'

(Chorus) 1) Except a wo[G]man is the sweetest fruit
2) Well, a woman is the sweetest fruit
         1) That G[C]od ever put on the vi[G]ne
2) That God ever put on the vine
         1) I'd n[C]o more love just o[G]ne kind of woman
2) I'd no more love just one kind of woman
3) I'd no more love just one kind of woman

         1) Than dr[D7]ink only one kind of wi[G]ne
2) Than drink only one kind of wine
3) Than drink only one kind of wine
