When a Woman Doesn't Want You

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

G    Cmaj7    Bm7    C    D

G                Cmaj7
She may be lost
She may be out of bounds
C                                G                        Em
All her tenderness and charms could be something
Em/D         C    G/B              Am7     Am7/D   D
A man like me has never found
G                            Cmaj7
But in her woman's way
She's still a little girl
C                            G/B             Em                Em/D      
The things that she wants, the things that she needs
C                G/B         Am7      Am7/D  
Oh well the choice is hers

D                G                Bm7
`Cause you can't take a woman
C                        G
When she doesn't want you
C                            G/B
And you can't be a man
             D           C/E   D/F# 
If you're blind to rea-  son
G                  Bm7
Man might be strong
C                     C#
But true love is stronger
                C        G/B
You gotta play it straight
           Am7      Am7/D  Eb            G
When a woman doesn't want you

Her voice invites
Her eyes say more than words
But her needs and complications
Can tear away the memory of last night's girl
And if you're weak
Yeah we're all weak sometime
The best things can wait
The best times they come
Oh when strength is kind

G/F                   C/E
And if you can't read her
Leave her alone
G/F                                 C/E
And if you don't know by now
She's not someone's prize
A7                                C/D
And you can't take her home
oh  cause you....
