Intro: | Am | Am/G | Am/F# | Fmaj7 | Am | G | D | E7 | (2 times)

  Am          Am/G        Am/F#             Fmaj7
I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
Am           G          D      E7
 While my guitar gently weeps
  Am          Am/G        Am/F#        Fmaj7
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Am               G          C      E7
 But still my guitar gently weeps

A             C#m F#m     C#m     Bm                 E7
 I don't know why  nobody told you how to unfold your love how to unfold your love
A                 C#m F#m        C#m         Bm                    E7
 And I don't know how someone controlled you, they bought and sold you.

  Am          Am/G        Am/F#       Fmaj7
I look at the world and I notice it's turning
Am           G          D      E7
 While my guitar gently weeps
     Am      Am/G          Am/F#     Fmaj7
From every mistake we must surely be learning
Am                     G          C      E7
 Yeah, but still my guitar gently weeps

Guitar solo: | Am | Am/G | Am/F# | Fmaj7 | Am | G | D | E7 |
             | Am | Am/G | Am/F# | Fmaj7 | Am | G | C | E7 |

A             C#m F#m         C#m    Bm                   E7
 I don't know how  you were diverted, you were perverted too
A             C#m F#m         C#m    Bm               E7
 I don't know how  you were inverted, no one alerted you.

  Am          Am/G        Am/F#             Fmaj7
I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
Am           G          D      E7
 While my guitar gently weeps
Am           Am/G  Am/F#  Fmaj7
 Look at you all
Am                    G          C      E7
 Yes, but still my guitar gently weeps.
