Intro: E x3
Verse one:
I'll n[C#m]ever forg[B]et you my A[A]merican lo[E]ve
and I'll al[C#m]ways rem[B]ember you, w[A]ild as they [E]come
and th[A]ough if I saw you, I'd p[B]retend not to k[C#m]now
The p[A]lace where you were in my h[B]eart is now c[C#m]losed
I alr[A]eady live with t[B]oo many ghos[E]ts
Verse two:
Now ev[C#m]erybody la[B]tely is li[A]ving up in s[E]pace
F[C#m]lying through [B]transmissions on i[A]nvisible [E]airwaves
With ev[A]erything discovered just wa[B]iting to be k[C#m]nown
Wha[A]t's left for God to [B]teach from his [C#m]throne?
And w[A]ho will for[B]give us when he's [E]gone?
So t[A]ake what you n[E]eed now Honey
[A]and do what you li[E]ke
[A]Don't worry about [E]me, Momma, I'm a[B]ll right
Verse three:
And [C#m]I can't stand the w[B]eather
No I [A]never liked the [E]rain
We dr[C#m]ink on the j[B]ob then we go h[A]ome ea[E]rly
and I r[A]emember how she looked so g[B]ood in that [C#m]dress
Now s[A]he just screams how I p[B]romised her more than [C#m]this
Take it [A]easy baby
[B]It ain't over [E]yet
Chorus two:
[A]So take what you n[E]eed now Honey
[A]and do what you [E]like
[A]Don't worry about m[E]e, Momma, I'm al[B]l right
and [A]if there's something you n[E]eed
an[A]d if there's something you[E] find
[A]whatever g[B]ets you through the [C#m]night
[A]whatever g[B]ets you through the [E]night
I nev[C#m]er will f[B]orget you m[A]y American lo[E]ve
and I'll al[C#m]ways rem[B]ember you, w[A]ild as they do[E] come
end on E
