I`ve Never Been To Me

	  {Verse 1} 
Dsus2           Cadd9 
      Hey lady,       you lady 
G         D/F#    Em   D 
  Cursing at your life 
         Am    G      D/F#   D 
You're a discontented mother 
      Em 
And a regimented wife 
C                   D 
  I've no doubt you   dream about 
    G          D/F#  Em  D 
The things you never do 
      A7 
But I wish someone had talked to me 
       Cadd9 
Like I       wanna talk to you 


{Chorus} 
D         G                   D/F# 
Ooh, I've been to Georgia and California 
    Em                  Bm 
And    anywhere I could run 
C                  G/B 
Took the hand of a preacher man 
       Am7                  D 
And we     made love in the sun 
          G                   D/F# 
But I ran   out of places and friendly faces 
  Em                Bm 
Because I had to be free 
C            G/B                Am7               G 
I've been to paradise, but I've     never been to me 
D Cadd9 G   (G F#m Em) 


{Verse 2} 
D              Cadd9 
  Please lady,       please lady 
G            D/F#  Em  D 
  Don't just walk away 
         Am        G       D/F#     D 
'Cause I have this need to tell you 
        Em 
Why I'm all alone today 
C              D 
  I can see so much of me 
G            D/F#    Em   D 
Still living in your eyes 
          A7 
Won't you share a part of a weary heart 
         Cadd9 
That has lived a million lives? 


{Chorus} 
D        G                    D/F# 
Oh, I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece 
        Em                    Bm 
Where I sipped champagne on a yacht 
  C                    G/B 
I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo 
    Am7                  D 
And showed 'em what I've got 
            G                         D/F# 
I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things 
       Em                     Bm 
That a woman ain't s'posed to see 
C            G/B                Am7               G 
I've been to paradise, but I've     never been to me 


{Bridge -- repeat G D C D throughout} 
Hey, you know what paradise is?  It's a lie 
A fantasy we create about people and places 
As we'd like them to be 
But you know what truth is? 
It's that little baby you're holding 
And it's that man you fought with this morning 
The same one you're going to make love with tonight 
That's truth, that's love 


{Chorus} 
D                G                  D/F# 
  Sometimes I've been to crying for unborn children 
     Em                    Bm 
That might have made me complete 
       C 
But I... I took the sweet life 
  G/B               Am7             D 
I never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet 
           G                  D/F# 
I spent my life exploring the subtle whoring 
     Em                  Bm 
That cost too much to be free, hey lady... 
C         G/B                   Am7   D       G 
I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me 
D/F#  Em  Bm 


{Outro, fade out} 
> C            G/B      Am7 
  I've been to paradise 
>                  G                   D/F# 
  (Never been to   me) 
                   Been to Georgia and California 
>     Em                  Bm 
  And    anywhere I could run 
> C            G/B      Am7 
  I've been to paradise 
>                  G                    D/F# 
  (Never been to   me) 
                   Been to Nice and the isle of Greece 
>         Em                    Bm 
  Where I sipped champagne on a yacht 
> C            G/B      Am7 
  I've been to paradise 
>                  G                  D/F# 
  (Never been to   me) 
                   Been to crying for unborn children 
>      Em                    Bm 
  That might have made me complete 
> C            G/B      Am7                G 
  I've been to paradise     (never been to me)
