 I laugh at all of your jokes,   my love you didn't need to coax

      Em                        A              D
 You stole my soul and that's a pain I can do without
 A                   G                D
 All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
 But you turned into a lover and mother what a lover you wore   me out
   G                         D              G                           A
 All you did was wreck my bed   and in the morning kick me in the head
    Em                      F#m       Em     D

 I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school  Or steal my daddy's cue   and make a living out of playing pool
     G                           D         G                 A
 Or find myself a Rock and Roll band that needs a helping hand
     Em                F#m             Em     D/F#
 Oh Maggie I wish I'd never seen your face
             Em                     A                Em                  A

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine; that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

G                              C
So I was the one with all the glory,
G                                    C
while you were the one with all the strain.
Am                          D      
A beautiful face without a name; for so long.
Am                              D            B7
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Em            C                   G
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
Em             C                G           D
and everything I would like to be?
Em           C              G             D
I can fly higher than an eagle 
C                 G                G

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,

The rose- I chorded this for a guy to sing and with open chords for an acoustic guitar. It starts out sparse and quiet,
then builds to a dramatic conclusion. Print and play!

E                        B  -      A    B            E 
Some say love, it is a river,  That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor,  That leaves your soul to bleed
          Abm           A
Some say love it is a hunger,
                   B
An endless aching need
E                    B
I say love it is a flower and
A  B          E
You its only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes a chance
         Abm                A   B
It's the one, who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying  That never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely  And the road has been too long
And you find that love is only  For the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter  Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love,  In the spring becomes the rose

Who's that knocking on my door  It's gotta be a quarter to four
Is it you again coming 'round for more
Well you can love me tonight if you want - But in the morning make sure you're gone

I'm talkin' to you Hot legs, wearing me out  Hot legs, you can scream and shout                                                                                                                              C/C/G
Hot legs, are you still in school - I love you honey
G Gotta most persuasive tongue  - You promise all kinds of fun

But what you don't understand I'm a working man
Gonna need a shot of vitamin E - By the time you're finished with me

I'm talking to you Hot legs, you're an alley cat - Hot legs, you scratch my back
Hot legs, bring your mother too - I love you honey

Imagine how my daddy felt  in your jet black suspender belt
Seventeen years old  He's touching sixty four
You got legs right up to your neck You're making me a physical wreck
I'm talking to you Hot legs, in your satin shoes Hot legs, are you still in school Hot legs, you're making me a fool - I love you honey

Hot legs, making your mark Hot legs, keep my pencil sharp
Hot legs, keep your hands to yourself -  I love you honey
Hot legs, you're wearing me out Hot legs, you can scream and shout
Hot legs, are you're still in school  -  I love you honey

Hot legs you're well equipped Hot legs now your pussy's whipped
Hot legs I just love your lips – I love ya I love ya I love ya

                       You're in My Heart
                        by: Rod Stewart
 
 
VERSE 1:
      I didn't know what day it was
      When you walked into the room.
      I said 'hello' unnoticed;
      You said goodbye too soon.
 
      Breezin' through the clientele,
      Spinnin yarns that were so lyrical.
      I really must confess right here,
      That the attraction was purely physical.
 
VERSE 2:
      I took all those habits of yours,
      Which in the beginning were hard to accept.
      Your fashion sense for Beardsley prints,
      I chalked up to experience.
 
      The redheaded lady with a dutch accent
      Who tried to change my point of view.
      Her ad lib lines were well rehearsed,
      But my heart poured out for you.
 
CHORUS:
      You're in my heart, you're in my soul.
      You'll be my breath should I grow old.
      You are my lover, you're my best friend.
      You're in my soul.
 
VERSE 3:
      You're an essay in glamour.  (Please pardon the grammer.)
      But you're every schoolboy's dream.
      You're Celtic united, but baby I've decided
      You're the best team I've ever seen.
 
      You're a rhapsody, a comedy,
      You're a symphony and a play.
      You're every love song ever written,
      But honey what do you see in me?
 
CHORUS:
 
VERSE 4:
      My love for you is immeasurable;
      My respect for you: immense.
      You're ageless, timeless, lace and fineness,
      You're beauty and elegance.
 
      And there have been many a day,
      Many times I thought to leave.
      But I bite my lip and turn around,
      Cause you're the warmest thing I ever found.
 
CHORUS:
(repeat)
 
                       You're in My Heart

Song: Rhythm Of My Heart Rhythm Of My Heart By Rod Stewart Note: Use a mellow pickup setting, light tremelo + light reverb
The Song is a simple progression of these three bar Chords  C#6 = x46666 F#  = 244322Ab  = 466544
Progression & Intro:
C#6 - F# - C#6 - G# - C#6 - F# - C#6 - G# - C#6 - Repeat -
To sound correct with the original recording this song should be played with the bar chords indicated... However, it can be played poorly with a Capo on the first fret, using C6/F/C6/G
C#6                    F#- C#6                                        Ab
Across the street the river runs  Down in the gutter life is slipping away
Let me still exist in another place,
C#6                    F#-  C#6                           Ab         C#6
Running down under cover Of a helicopter blade

C#6                    F#- C#6                                        Ab
The flames are getting higher, in effigy
Burning down the bridges of my memory
C#6                  F#
Love may still alive somewhere someday
C#6                                        Ab          C#6
where they're downing only deer, a hundred steel towns away

C#6                    F#- C#6                                        Ab
Oh, rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I Love you" rolling off my tongue
C#6                   F#
No never will I roam, for I know my place is home
C#6                                    Ab  C#6
Where the ocean meets the sky, I'll be sailing
C#6             F#- C#6                  Ab
Photographs and kerosene light up my darkness,light it up, light it up
I can still feel the touch of your thin blue jeans
C#6                                      Ab            C#6
Running down the alley, I've got my eyes all over you, baby, Oh, baby

C#6                    F#
Oh, rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
C#6                                        Ab
with the words "I Love you" rolling off my tongue
C#6                   F#
No never will I roam, for I know my place is home
C#6                                    Ab  C#6           Ab  C#6
Where the ocean meets the sky, I'll be sailing  (I'll be sailing)

...Oh, yeah...

C#6                    F#- C#6                                        Ab
Oh, I've got lightning in my veins,
shifting like the handle of a slot machine
Love may still exist, in another place.

C#6                               Ab               C#6
I'm just yanking back the handle, no expression on my face.
== Chorus 3x ==
C#6                    F#- C#6                                        Ab
Oh, rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum  with the words "I Love you" rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam, for I know my place is home  - Where the ocean meets the sky, I'll be sailing

Song: Some Guys Have All The Luck

SOME GUYS HAVE ALL THE LUCK (Rod Stewart)
A               D         Bm G    A
Some guys have all the luck Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks Some guys did nothing but complain

D Alone in a crowd on a bus after work
      Bm
and I'm dreaming
G The guy next to me has a girl in his arms
       A My arms are empty

How does it feel when the girl next to you
says she loves you
It seem so unfair when there's love everywhere
but there's none for me

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys did nothing but complain

Someone to take on a walk by the lake
Lord let it be me
Someone who's shy
Someone who'll cry at sad movies
I know I would die if I ever found out
she was fooling me
You're just a dream and as real as it seems
I ain't that lucky

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys did nothing but complain

All of my friends have a ring on their finger
They have someone
Someone to care for them it ain't fair
I got no one
The car overheated
I called up and pleaded
There's help on the way

I called you collect you didn't accept
You had nothing to say

Some guys have all the luckSome guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaksSome guys did nothing but complain

But if you were here with me I'd feel so happy I could cry
You are so dear to meI just can't let you say goodbye
