Verse:
Ab                Db            Gb
I wish that you could see who i really am 
       Ebm
It sucks being a woman in love
              Ab
With an unkind man
                              Db
'Cause baby I would give you the world, 
            Gb
In fact I already do

And how do you repay that?
Ebm
Talk to me like I'm just a regular tramp 
    Ab
Trying to screw you over 
    Db                     Gb
Do you even have a clue what I gave up just to be here 
Ebm
To serve your ass with steak and beer


Ab
Baby that's love
Db
Baby that's real
Gb
And all I've ever wanted was for your damn arms 
Ebm
To wrap themselves around me and say

Chorus:
Ab                                Db
Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Gb
Come and lay your bones down with me
Ebm
Come and lay your bones down with me
Ab                                Db
Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my heart has ever known

Come and lay your bones down with me
Ebm
Come and lay your bones down with me

Verse:
Ab                          Db  
I’m not trying to play the victim
                            Gb
Don’t wanna go head to head
                               Ebm
But boy, I shouldn’t have to stand in the mirror 
                        Ab
Convincing myself I'm fair
                       Db
Baby that’s your job to do
                                Gb
Baby you should think I’m beautiful

Why you wanna watch the set 
            Ebm                                 Ab
When I’m laying right next to you in our own room
                      Db
I feel like you don’t even know I’m there
             Gb
But I put a brush through my hair for you
        Ebm
Run my fingertips over your back real smooth


Ab
Cause Boy I need love
Db
I don't get enough
Gb
And all I ever want is for your damn arms 
Ebm
To put themselves around me and say

Ebm
Come and lay your bones down with me
Ab                                     Db
Hey girl, you’re the prettiest thing my heart has ever known
Gb
Come and lay your bones down with me
Ebm
Come and lay your bones down with me


Ab                       Db
I look you dead in the eye and say I love you
Gb
In the eye and say I want you
Ebm                                        Ab
In the eye and say this is what I’m asking for

How could you sit and stare at the wall?
Db
Do you even like me at all?
Gb
Stop talking ‘bout making it better
G
It ain’t that complicated, I just wanna feel your arms around me, baby


Ebm         Ab                                Db
Please say, girl, you’re the prettiest thing my eyes have ever seen
Gb
Come and lay your bones down with me

Please, baby, please baby, it’s a woman’s dream
