Arranged by: Funkynic



Tuning: Standard

watch the video but it may help some people with the timing. Also I tried my 
best to get the most accurate chord names but I couldn't find the last two 
chords in any book or online chord finder so I just named them after the root 
note. If anyone has the correct chord names please send it to the e-mail above.

Additional note: I dont use the same exact chords in the video.

       Bm
If you want me to stay
        Am7    D9
I'll be around today
      G7                   F#7
To be available for you to see
             Bm
I'm about to go
    Am7         D9
And then you'll know
          G7                       D   C#
For me to stay here I've got to be me

             Bm
You'll never be in doubt
                 Am7  D9
That's what it's all about
          G7                      F#7
You can't take me for granted and smile
          Bm
Count the days I'm gone
       Am7            D9
Forget reaching me by phone
          G7                         D    C#
Because I promise I'll be gone for a while

         Bm
When you see me again
            Am7      D9
I hope that you have been
            G7                         F#7
The kind of person that you really are now
           Bm
You got to get it straight
            Am7     D9
How could I ever be late
               G7                 D    C#
When you're my woman takin' up my time

              Bm
How could you ever allow
          Am7    D9
I guess I wonder how
              G7                    F#7
How could you get out of pocket for fun
         Bm                            Am7   D9
When you know that you're never number two
       G7                  D   C#
Number one gonna be number one

Bm
I'll be good
  Am7    D9
I wish I could
         G7                  F#7
