Lyrics

G                    D        C                    D
    It's late in the evening,     she's wondering what clothes to wear,
G                   D        C                   D
    She puts on her make-up,     and brushes her long, blonde hair.
C                D        G                   Em
    And then she asks me,      "Do I look all right?"
                C             D           G
    And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

G              D      C                 D
    We go to a party,      and everyone turns to see,
G                  D    C                   D
    This beautiful lady,      who's walking around with me.
C                D       G                      Em
    And then she asks me,      "Do you feel all right?"
                C           D           G
    And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

           C           D               G                  Em
    I feel wonderful because I see the love light in your eyes,
            C            D               C             D
    And the wonder of it all is that you just don't realise,
               G
    How much I love you.

G                   D        C                     D
    It's time to go home now,      and I've got an aching head.
G                     D        C                   D
    So I give her the car keys,      and she helps me to bed.
C              D        G                       Em
    And then I tell her,      as I turn out the light.
               C                 D           G
    I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight."


 At the beginning of the song and after each chorus and at the end there is a very small guitar solo played and since not many tabs include it, I've decided I will. You will have to listen to the song to get the timing right. I've tried to put the spaces where there is a gap in the solo before you start playing again.

Guitar Solo (although very short)

e |--7--5--3--5--gap--7--5--3--0--gap--7--5--3--5--7--8--12--10
