*Capo 1

Intro: | A | C#m | D | E | E

Vs.1
A C#m
It's her first night on the town, since she was just 18.
D E
A lady down on love, and out of hopes and dreams.
A C#m
The ties that once bound her, now are broke away away.
D E A
And she's just like a baby, learning how to play.


Vs.2
She never thought that love, could ever end so soon.
Her mind drifts back in time, to a mid-summer moon.
When he ask her to marry, and she gladly said OK.
And a woman came to be, from the girl of yesterday.


Chorus:
A C#m D A
Now she's a lady, down on love.
A C#m D A
She needs somebody, to gently pick her up.
F#m C#m D A
She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound.
D E A
To a man who would love her, and never let her down.


*No Capo
*You can change the key other ways, this is just easiest for me.

Bridge:
C Em
Well I know the lady, that's down on her love.
F G
Cause I used to hold her, and have that special touch.
C Em
But work took me away, from home late at night.
F G
And I wasn't there, when she turned out the lights.
C Em
Then both of us got lonely, and I gave into lust.
F G C
And she just couldn't live, with a man she couldn't trust.


Chorus:
C Em F C
Now she's a lady, down on love.
C Em F C
She needs somebody, to gently pick her up.
Am Em F C
She's got her freedom, but she'd rather be bound.
F G C
To a man who would love her, and never let her down.


Outro:
C Em F C | C | Em | F | C |
Now she's a lady.... Down on love.
