She Believes in Me
Intro: G C/G Cm/G G

While she lays sleeping
G7/B C
I stay out late at night and sing my songs
G/B Am7 D7 D/C Bm7
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
Em7 Am7
And it’s good when I finally make it home –
All alone
D7 G
While she lays dreaming
G7/B C
I try to get undressed without the light
G/B Am7 D7 D/C Bm7
Then she quietly says how was your night
Em7 Am7
And I come to her and say it was all right –
D7 G D7sus4
And I hold her tight

Gsus4 G
And she believes in me
Gsus4 G F#m7-5
I’ll never know just what she sees in me
B7 Em Em+7(Em/D#)
I told her someday if she was my girl
Em7(Em/D) Em6(Em/C#) Am7
I could change the world with my little songs –
I was wrong
Gsus4 G
But she has faith in me
Gsus4 G F#M7-5
And so I go on trying faithfully
B7 Em
And who knows, maybe on some special night
Em+7 Em7 Em6
If my song is right
I will find a way
Find a way . . .

While she lays waiting
G7/B C
I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
G/B Am7 D7 D/C Bm7
Then I see my old guitar in the night
Em7 Am7
Just waiting for me like a secret friend –
And there’s no end
D7 G
While she lies crying
G7/B C
I fumble with a melody or two
G/B Am7 D7 D/C Bm7
Then I’m torn between the things that I should do
Em7 Am7 D7 G
Then she says to wake her up when I am through
God her love is true


G C/E Cm/G G
While she waits, while she waits for me
