[Intro]
C Csus4 C G C F/C 

[Verse 1]
C         G           C              G              C    
  She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
        C C/D C/E F              Fmaj7  F6   Fmaj7
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
        G         C           G             E  
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
    Am           Am/G            Fmaj7    G        C  Csus4
She hides like a child but she's always a woman to me

[Verse 2]
C          G             C           G           C
   She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you
        C   C/D C/E   F              Fmaj7   F6        Fmaj7
She can ask for the truth but she'll never believe you
           G             C            G             E
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
         Am             Am/G           Fmaj7    G        C  Csus4 C C/B
Yeah she steals like a thief but she's always a woman to me

[Chorus]
Am Am/G D7/F#           D7         G G/F# Em         Cmaj7        Fmaj7 Fmaj7/E
Oooooooooooh, she takes care of herself,     she can wait if she wants
Dm        G7            C Csus4 C
   She's ahead of her time
Cm7 Cm7/Bb F7                     Bb Bb/A Gm  Ebmaj7              Ab Ab/G
Oooooooooooh, and she never gives out,        and she never gives in
D7                      G  G6
  She just changes her mind

[Verse 3]
G7           G6          C             G         C
  And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
            C    C/D  C/E F           Fmaj7              F6
Then she'll care-less-ly  cut you and laugh while you're bleeding
Fmaj7        G               C            G            E7
     But she brings out the best and the worst you can be
         Am     Am/G                  Fmaj7    G        C  Csus4
Blame it all on yourself 'cause she's always a woman to me

[Break]
C   G7 C G E7    Am Am/G Fmaj7 G C Csus4 C C/B
  Hm---------  Hm-----------------

[Chorus]
Am Am/G D7/F#           D7         G G/F# Em         Cmaj7        Fmaj7 Fmaj7/E
Oooooooooooh, she takes care of herself,     she can wait if she wants
Dm        G7            C Csus4 C
   She's ahead of her time
Cm7 Cm7/Bb F7                     Bb Bb/A Gm  Ebmaj7              Ab Ab/G
Oooooooooooh, and she never gives out,        and she never gives in
D7                      G  G6
  She just changes her mind

[Verse 4]
G7       G6         C              G        C
  She is frequently kind and she's suddenly cruel
        C  C/D C/E F              Fmaj7    F6
She can do as  she pleases, she's nobody's fool
Fmaj7        G           C             G            E7
     But she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree
         Am           Am/G        Fmaj7      Em 
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
          Dm       G        C  Csus4
But she's always a woman to me

[Outro]
C   G7 C G E7    Am Am/G Fmaj7 G C Csus4 C
  Hm---------  Hm-----------------
