[Intro]: D G/D D A

F#m                    G
If one day you discover him
F#m                    G
Broken down, he's lost everything
F#m                           G
No cars, no fancy clothes to make him who he's not
F#m                      G
The woman at his side is all that he has got

Bm         A             G          D
Why do you ask him move heaven and earth
     Em              Asus4
To prove his love has worth

D                    G/D
Would he walk on water, would he run through fire
D                                    G/D
Would he stand before you, when it's down to the wire
D                               A/C#      
Would he give his life up, to be all he can
Bm       A        Em               G       Asus4 A
Is that, is that, is that how you measure a man

F#m                  G
If by chance all he had to give you
F#m                       G
Was three words wrapped around your finger
F#m                              G
Would that be deep enough at the end of every day
F#m                               G
And how will you ever know, if a man is what he says

Bm         A             G          D
Why do you ask him move heaven and earth
     Em                A
To prove his love has worth

D                    G/D
Would he walk on water, would he run through fire
D                                    G/D
Would he stand before you, when it's down to the wire
D                               A/C#      
Would he give his life up, to be all he can
Bm       A        Em               G        Bm7
Is that, is that, is that how you measure a man

              Em7                 Asus4
He never gives up, lets go of his dream
                 D                        Bm7
His world goes around for his one true belief
                 Em7                  Asus4 A
Is that how you know, is that what it means, yeah

D                    G/D
Would he walk on water, would he run through fire
D
Would he stand before you
Eb                                   Ab/Eb
Would he will be your anchor when the dark unfolds
Eb                          Ab/Eb
Would he always love you the best that he knows
Eb                              Bb/D
Would he give his life up, to be all that he can
Cm       Bb       Fm               Ab
Is that, is that, is that how you measure a man

Would he walk on water, would he run through fire
Eb                                  Ab/Eb
Would he stand before you, when it's down to the wire
Eb                              Bb/D
Would he give his life up, to be all he can
Cm       Bb       Fm                Ab
Is that, is that, is that, how you measure oh oh
Cm       Bb       Fm      Ab Bb                Eb Ab/Eb Eb
Is that, is that, is that, how your measure a man

Clarification:
Chordname (E A D G B E)
X = Don't play / Muffle

So either put a capo on the first fret or transpose this to +1 for the original key

But the way I play it, once I hit the key change (first Eb) I instead move the capo 
one step and keep playing in D major using the chords from the previous choruses
