When a Man Loves a Woman
Percy Sledge
key of C (probably not the record's key)
intro C G/B Am7 Am/G F G C G6
  verse1     When a [C]man loves a [G/B]woman,[Am]   can't keep his mind on [C7/G]nothing else
           [F]  He'll trade the w[G]orld for the good thing he's f[C]ound[G]
           If she's [C]bad he can't [G/B]see it [Am]     she can do no [C7/G]wrong
           [F]Turn his back on his b[G]est friend if he put her d[C]own[G]
verse2 When a man loves a woman, spend his very last dime
Tryin' to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comfort, sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be
  chorus    [F] Well, this [G]man loves a w[C]oman
           [F]  I gave you [G]everything I [C]had
           [F]  Tryin' to h[G]old on to [C]your [E7/B]precious [Am]love
           [D7]Baby, please don't treat me [F/G]bad[G+5]
verse3 When a man loves a woman, down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool, he's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes don't ever see
  outro      When a [C]man loves a [G/B]woman, [Am]   I know exactly how he [C7/G]feels
F G C G (repeat outro until tired)
Coz baby baby baby you're my world
