The intro isn't supposed to be perfectly accurate, just
an approximation I came up with.

A.

C            G             Gm         F
You can show me the way -- give me a sunny day
                  G                 C
but what does it mean without your love?
    C            G        Gm           F
And if I could travel far, if I could touch the stars
              G                C
where would I be without your love?



B1.

Bb         F               G        C
Whenever I get to feel    down and out
Bb             F                      G        C
I think about what you said and then   I give out
C           G        E             F
If I could fly away -- if I could sail today
              G                C
where would I go without your love?


(play intro, then repeat A.)


B2.

Bb       F               G       C
And if I ever wandered away too far
Bb               F                   G       C
Mmm, you comin' looking for me with    open arms
C                  G     E           F
I could forget my home, feel like a rolling stone
                G                C
but who would I be without your love?


F                 G                 C
And what does it mean without your love?
F             G 
Where would I be...?


(Repeat intro and end)
