    AMY    PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE

Intro chords   A  G  D   A  G  D
Play Intro chords like this:
A = pick open 5th string (bass string) then strum up once
G = up-down-up strum one each  no bass string
D = up-down-up strum one each   no bass string
   Some think this is 8 strums of just one chord but it's three chords.


A              G               A            G D A (play like intro)  
I can see why you think you belong to me. 
A                 G                  A                              D
I never tried to make you think, or let you see one thing for your-self. 
                C                                D(-f#)see above
But now you're off with someone else and I'm a-lone. 
        C                                  E     A   
See I thought that I might keep ya for my own

 

Chorus:

A    G              D

Amy What cha wanna do? 
A        G                            Bm

I think  I could stay with you for a-while 

        F#m        E     A G D play like intro 

Maybe longer if I  do. 




A                    G                A           G D A        
Don't cha think the time is right for us to find
A                   G                      A    
All the things we thought weren't proper could be right in time
            D            C                            D(-f#)
And can ya see which way we should turn together or alone
             C                            E
I can never see what's right or what is wrong

"Cause it would take to long to do"

to chorus
A                 G                   A             G D A
Now it's come to what you want to to have your way
A                        G                   A  
And all the things you thought before just faded in the grave
         D           C                               D(-f#) 
Can you see that I don't know if it's you or if it's me
         C                                   E
If it's one of us I'm sure we'll both will see

"Won't cha look at me and tell me"

To ending chorus
