Verse:

       C           G/B   Am                        C7/G
When a man loves a woman,   can't keep his mind on nothing else
F                G                             C     G
He'll trade the world for the good thing he's found
         C            G/B    Am                 C7/G
If she's bad he can't see it      she can do no wrong
F                     G                         C    G
Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down


Verse:

       C           G/B   Am                  C7/G
When a man loves a woman, spend his very last dime
F              G               C     G
Tryin' to hold on to what he needs
         C         G/B      Am               C7/G
He'd give up all his comfort, sleep out in the rain
F                     G     C         G
If she said that's the way it ought to be

       
Chorus:

F          G            C      C
Well, this man loves a woman
F          G            C      C
I gave you everything I had
F          G        [C    E7/B]     Am
Tryin' to hold on to your precious love
D7                 D7       F/G     G (hold)
Baby, please don't treat me bad


Verse:

       C           G/B   Am                C7/G
When a man loves a woman, down deep in his soul
F      G           C     G
She can bring him such misery
         C         G/B      Am        C7/G
If she plays him for a fool, he's the last one to know
F     G            C     G
Lovin' eyes don't ever see


Chorus:

F          G            C      C
Well, this man loves a woman
F          G            C      C
I gave you everything I had
F          G        [C    E7/B]     Am
Tryin' to hold on to your precious love
D7                 D7       F/G     G (hold)
Baby, please don't treat me bad


Outro:

       C           G/B    Am         C7/G
When a man loves a woman,    I know exactly how he feels
F          G              C     G   
Coz baby baby baby you're my world

(Repeat to end)
