Understanding Women

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album The One

Gm              D7/F#               
Rolling over trying to sleep
Bb/F                      Cm/Eb
And understanding women
D                                    D7
Thinking of you out there somewhere
Gm                                        G7
Looking for a new beginning

Cm                            D7
Just let me be the final word
         Gm                         Gm/F  
In the book we haven't written
C/E                            D   Eb6
I won't be another page
    D7                  Gm
In understanding women

I could drive to Mexico
On understanding women
Throw myself against the waves
And answer up to heaven

How come her heart's so stubborn
And what's so wrong with giving
Ask the big sky talking
About understanding women

G7/F                          Cm                      F                            Bb 
And I'm not just anyone who ever stood outside your door
G7/F                      Cm                        F            Bb
And I'm not any man you've ever known before
Don't judge this picture by the frame
Every man is not the same
Some men reach beyond the pain
Of understanding women
