Chorus: 
      Dsus4 D             F#m
If you take your love from me,
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone
        Dsus4 D                  F#m
If your love  I couldn't call my own,
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.

 
Verse 1:
  D              A
I need your love in every way
D                         A
Your love I cling to when things slip away.
D                         A
Without your love I'll be lost and alone.
D                        A
No reason for living, all purpose would be gone.
Em                       F#m     F#
Without you there for my eyes to behold
Bm                        E7
My life would be empty, my heart would grow cold.
 
Chorus:
       Dsus4 D              F#m
If you take  your love from me, 
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.
        Dsus4 D                  F#m
If your love  I couldn't call my own,
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.
 
Verse 2:
       D                A
When I think of love, I think of me and you.
       D                     A
When I think of happiness I think of us too.
D                         A
You're my yesterdays, and all my tomorrows,
    D                   A
The air I breathe. Everything I need.
Em                F#m         F#
If from my life you were ever gone,
    Bm              E7
I'd fall to pieces. You I depend on.
 
Chorus:
       Dsus4 D             F#m
If you take  your love from me, 
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.

I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.
 
Verse 3:
D                        A
Darling without you I'll go on searching
       D                 A
With a lonely heart that won't stop hurting.
D                       A
Sorrow would be written on my face
D                  A        
All my tears would leave its trace.
Em                F#m         F#
I would be like a statue in a park
Bm                E7
Cold and alone, a man without a heart.

Chorus: 
       Dsus4 D              F#m
If you take  your love from me, 
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.
        Dsus4 D                  F#m
If your love  I couldn't call my own,
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone.
 
Fade: 
Dsus4 D        F#m
Turn to stone, turn to stone
      G                   A
Just turn to stone, I'll turn to stone.
        Dsus4 D                  F#m
If your love  I couldn't call my own.
     G                   A
I'll turn to stone, just turn to stone,
     G              A
I'll turn to stone, turn to stone...


String muting while strumming also does nicely
God bless!
