Verse:
Bb                  F      Bb     F 
No New Year`s day, to celebrate, 
             Bb                             Cm Cm7 
no chocolate covered candy hearts to give away. 
            Cm      Cm7        Cm Cm7                    
No first of spring, no song to sing, 
        Cm                  F        Bb
in fact here`s just another ordinary day. 
  
Verse:   
Bb                 F       Bb    F                   
No April rain, no flowers bloom, 
           Bb                            Cm  Cm7 
no wedding Saturday within the month of June. 
            Cm  Cm7          Cm  Cm7                    
But what it is, is something true, 
           Cm                     F             Bb
made up of these three words that I must say to you. 
  
Chorus:
       Cm        F     Bb              
I just called to say I love you, 
       Eb         F              Gm 
I just called to say how much I care. 
       Cm        F     Bb                       
I just called to say I love you, 
      Eb                F            Bb 
and I mean it from the bottom of my heart. 
  
Verse:  
            Bb     F       Bb  F
No summer`s high, no warm July, 
           Bb                               Cm  Cm7 
no harvest moon to light one tender August night. 
          Cm      Cm7        Cm    Cm7 
No autumn breeze, no falling leaves, 
         Cm                F               Bb
not even time for birds to fly to southern skies. 

Verse:
         Bb    F        Bb  F                 
No Libra Sun, no Halloween, 
          Bb                                   Cm   Cm7 
no giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring. 
            Cm  Cm7            Cm  Cm7 
But what it is, though old, so new. 
             Cm                  F                Bb 
to fill your heart like no three words could ever do. 


Chorus -key change-:
       E         Gb    B
I just called, to say I love you.
       E         Gb             Abm
I just called, to say how much I care.
       E         Gb    Abm
I just called, to say I love you.
      E               Gb           B
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

Chorus:
       F          G     C 
I just called, to say I love you. 
       F          G              Am 
I just called, to say how much I care. 
       F          G     Am 
I just called, to say I love you. 
      F                G            C 
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
