NOTES: This song is one of Eric's best ballads, but
       unfortunately it's not very well-known. It is
       from his 1983 album "Money and Cigarettes" and
       it features both acoustic and electric guitar
       work. An acoustic strums the chords indicated
       above each line of tab, while the electric plays
       the tab parts.

LYRICS: Pretty girl, you are the light of my life I mean my everything You are the one I chose to make my wife That?s why you wear my ring And when I?m feeling down and out You are the one who will bail me out My love will always guide me home Pretty girl, my pretty girl Oh pretty girl, my pretty girl Pretty girl, don?t ever say goodbye Don?t ever let me be If you do, you know that I would die You mean that much to me And when I?m feeling low and blue You always know just what to do My love will always guide me home My pretty girl, oh pretty girl My pretty girl, oh pretty girl And when I?m feeling down and out You?re the one who will bail me out My love will always guide me home My pretty girl Pretty girl, hear what I have to say It?s something you should know You brought me sunshine on my darkest day That?s why I love you so And when my wandering day is through I?ll always hurry back home to you My love will always guide me home My pretty girl, oh pretty girl My pretty girl, oh pretty girl.... __________________________________________ comments, corrections: s_garner@hotmail.com
