VERSE 1
Em                G
Two weeks in a Virginia jail
D             A
For my lover, for my lover
Em              G
Twenty thousand dollar bail
D             A
For my lover, for my lover
 
CHORUS
C                     Aadd9
  And everybody thinks.. I'm the fool
D                      C
  They don't get.. any love from you
Em                       Aadd9
  Things we won't do for love 
Em
  I'd climb a mountain if I had to,
G
  Risk my life so I could have you 
D                Cmaj7
you you you you, you you you you you
 
VERSE 2
Em                  G
Everyday I'm psychoanalyzed
D             A
For my lover, for my lover
Em                    G
They Dope me up and I tell them lies
D             A
For my lover, for my lover
 
CHORUS
C                     Aadd9
  And everybody thinks.. I'm the fool
D                      C
  They don't get.. any love from you
Em                       Aadd9
  Things we won't do for love 
Em
  I'd climb a mountain if I had to,
G
  Risk my life so I could have you 
D                Cmaj7
you you you you, you you you you you
 
BRIDGE
Cmaj7              Em
 I follow my heart.. and leave my head to ponder
D                       Cmaj7
 Deep in this love.. no man can shake.
 
Cmaj7              Em
 I follow my heart.. and leave my mind to wonder,
D                              Cmaj7
 is this love worth.. the sacrifices I make?
