Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic
Words & Music:
Yep. These are the chords as given in The Police's own book. Another, easier version subs the verse vamp with: G A Bm Cm and the chorus chords with G to C [two beats each]. There is a nice acoustic guitar version of this in the July 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar.
G G/A G/B A/C# [verse vamp]
Though I've tried before to tell her
G/B A/C# G G/A G/B A/C#
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart.
Every time that I come near her,
G/B A/C# D G A D G A D G A D
I just lose my nerve as I've done from the start.
A D/C A/C# D
Every little thing she does is-- magic.
Everything she do just turn me on.
Even though my life before was tragic.
A D/C A/C# Bb C/F G G/A G/B A/C#
Now, I know my love for her goes on.
Do I have to tell the story of a thousand rainy days since we first met?
It's a big enough umbrella – but it's always me that ends up getting wet.
[transition chords out of this chorus:] Bb C/F Bb C/F
Bb Am7 Gm7 Am7
I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
Gm7 Am7 Bb Am7
And ask her if she'll marry me in some old-fashioned way.
Bb C Bb C
But my silent fears have gripped me long before I reach the phone.
Long before my tongue has tripped me.
Bb C D G A D G A D G A D
Must I always be alone?
