         G        A7       D   Dsus4  D But shes always a woman to me
verse 2
She can lead you to love She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth But she'll never believe you
And shell take what you give her, as long as its free She steals like a thief
But shes always a woman to me

And she'll promise you more
            A7        D
Than the garden of eden
               D7        G
Then she'll carelessly cut you
       D               G
And laugh while you're bleedin'
            A7           D
But she'll bring out the best

And the worst you can be

She is frequently kindAnd she's suddenly cruel She can do as she pleases Shes nobody's fool
But she cant be convicted She's earned her degree And the most she will do Is throw shadows at you
But shes always a woman to me
