Bm7      Em7 
I know a girl 
              Asus4                 D 
She puts the color inside of my world 
Bm7               Em7 
She's just like a maze 
                  Asus4                    D 
Where all of the walls all continually change 
Bm7             Em7 
I've done all I can 
                Asus4                        D 
To stand on the steps with my heart in my hands 
 Bm7                Em7 
Now I’m starting to see 
               Asus4                D 
Maybe it’s got nothing to do with me  


Chorus: 
   Bm7        E7           G      D 
So fathers be good to your daughters, 
Bm7            E7            G       D 
Daughters will love like you do, 
Bm7          E7         G           D 
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers 
   Bm7        E7           G          D 
So mothers be good to your daughters too

Bm7             Em7 
Oh you see that skin 
        Asus4                    D  
Its the same she’s been standing in 
          Bm7             Em7       
Since the day she saw him walkin’ away 
          Asus4                        D 
Now she’s left cleaning up the mess he made 


Chorus: 
   Bm7        E7           G      D 
So fathers be good to your daughters, 
Bm7            E7            G       D 
Daughters will love like you do, 
Bm7          E7         G           D 
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers 
   Bm7        E7           G          D 
So mothers be good to your daughters too 
 

Bridge:
F  Eb        D  
Boys you can break           
Dmaj7        Dsus2         Bm7        
Find out how much they can take 
              Em7                  
Boys will be strong and  
             D 
Boys soldier on 
                  Bb  
But boys would be gone  
                                            
Without the warmth of a woman's good, good heart 


Interlude: Bm7 Em7 Asus4 D x2 


             Bm7       Em7 
On behalf of every man

Looking out for every girl 
            Bm7         Em7           Asus4   D 
You are the god and the weight of her world

    +5 Is probably the easiest alternative, although it’s still not that easy. I recommend playing Aminor instead of A7

  2. On the last line of the bridge, “Without the warmth of a woman’s good, good heart”, the chords were left out and I’m having a problem trying to figure them out. Any assist? I’m kinda just learning this stuff. :D

  3. rachelsebald

    I think it sounds good to play an Em7 on the word “woman’s” in the bridge

  4. the second riff where it goes
    xC|—–1-2-|—–1-2-
    xG|-4——-|-4——-
    that second 4 just doesnt sound right when you hear the song
