G C/G G C/G G D/F# Em Am Em/G D/F# Whenever I'm weary from the battles that rage in my head, You make sense of madness when my sanity hangs by a thread, C B7 Em D A7/C# I lose my way but still you seem to understand, Am7 C/D D G C/G Now and forever, I will be your man. Sometimes I just hold you Too caught up in me to see, I'm holding a fortune that heaven has given to me, I'll try to show you each and every way I can, Now and forever, I will be your man. B7 Em C G D Now I can rest my worries and always be sure Em C G D/F# Em C G D that I won't be alone anymore, if I'd only known you were there Am7 Cm(#7) Cm6 all the time all the time. solo: G D/F# Em Am Em/G D/F# G D/F# Em Am Em/G D/F# C B7 Em D A7/C# Until the day the ocean doesn't touch the sand, Am7 C/D D G C/G Now and forever, I will be your man. Am7 C/D D C Cm6 G C/G D/G G Now and forever, I will be your man.Other Resources
