And i love you so   Don McLean






"And I Love You So" by Don McLean

Taken from the "Favorites & Rarities" double CD. I think this TAB is rather 
accurate. It's not always that easy to transcribe Don's guitar through all
the violins etc. that dominate part of the song, but I've done my best.
I honestly think that any mistakes are so small that they can be neglected.
Listen to the album. I know Elvis Presley also played this song.

This song is also available on the albums:

	Tapestry
	Solo
	Greatest hits then and now
	The best of Don McLean
	Classics

Comments and corections are always welcome.
The lyrics follow after the TAB...

For original album tuning: Capo on 4th fret, but it's easier to
                           sing the chorus by playing in a lower key.

Have fun!



And I love you so (Don McLean)

Lyrics:

And I love you so (Don McLean)


1.verse  And I love you so
	 The people ask me how
	 How I've lived till now
	 I tell them I don't know

	 I guess they understand
	 How lonely life has been
	 But life began again
	 The day you took my hand

1.chorus And yes I know how lonely life can be
	 The shadows follow me
	 And the night won't set me free
	 But I don't let the evening get me down
	 Now that you're around me

2.verse  And you love me too
	 Your thought are just for me
	 You set my spirit free
	 I'm happy that you do

	 The book of life is breif
	 And once a page is read
	 All but love is dead
	 That is my belief

2.chorus And yes I know how loveless life can be
	 The shadows follow me
	 And the night won't set me free
	 But I won't let the evening bring me down
	 Now that you're around me

3.verse  And I love you so
	 The people ask me how
	 How I've lived till now
	 I tell them - I don't know

There are lines missing in the second vers.
The first vers and its chorus are all right.
But the rest is not.
