       Cm        G7                Cm  Cm7

Fm             Ab               Eb      G7
all about the girl who came to stay?
       Cm       G7                          Cm         Cm7
she's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry
Fm                Ab              Cm
still you don't regret a single day

   Eb    Gm    Fm  Bb7
ah girl      
   Eb    Gm    Fm Bb7
ah girl      

       Cm                G7                  Cm      Cm7
when i think of all the times i've tried so hard to leave her
Fm              Ab                Eb     G7 
she will come to me and start to cry
        Cm             G7              Cm  Cm7
and she promises the earth to me and i bel-ieve her
Fm              Ab                Cm
after all this time i don't know why

she's the kind of girl who puts you down
                                    Fm   C
when friends are there, you feel a fool
when you say she's looking good
     C                                 Fm         Ab

ah girl      

        Cm                G7                    Cm       Cm7
was she told when she was young that pain would lead to pleasure?
Fm                               Eb    G7
did she understand it when they said
       Cm                 G7               Cm     Cm7
that a man must break his back to earn his day of leisure,
Fm                                   Cm
will she still believe it when he's dead?

Eb    Gm    Fm  Bb7
ah girl      
   Eb    Gm    Fm Bb7
ah girl

    Pal, just one little corrrection:
    In the line:
    she will come to me and start to cry

    I think the Ab chord is not there. I think it sounds good just Fm and then Eb and G7.

    And for the next even line
    still you don’t regret a single day

    The same thing, just holding Fm until switching to Cm is fine.

    The same applies to all the lines with that rithm.

    Hope you find it useful!
