Whenever I see your smiling face,  
  A       A/(G#)  F#m7    B7sus4  E        C#m7   F#m7  B7sus4
I have to smile myself, because I love you.
    E             E/(D#)  C#m7          C#m7/(B)
And when you give me that pretty little pout
   A        A/(G#)  F#m7    
it turns me inside out.
        B7sus4     E        C#m7          F#m7  B7sus4  G#7/C
There's something about you baby, I don't know.

A                E/G#                  F#m7           A   B
Tell me how much longer.  It will grow stronger every day

Oh, how much longer


  F#               F#/(F)      D#m7      D#m7/(C#) 
I thought I was in love just a couple of times 
  B             B/(A#)    G#m7      C#7sus4  
before with the girl next door, but that was
F#            D#m7              G#m7        C#7sus4
long before I met you.  Now I'm sure that I won't forget you.
      F#       F#/(F) D#m7  D#m7/(C#) 
And I thank my lucky  stars   that 
B       B/(A#)  G#m7    C#7sus4  
you are who you are and not just
 F#            D#m7              G#m7     B7sus4   Bb7/D
another lovely lady sent down to break my heart.

About the artist behind Your Smiling Face Chords:

James Vernon Taylor (born March 12, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.[1]

Taylor's career began in the mid-1960s, but he found his audience in the early 1970s, singing sensitive and gentle acoustic songs. He was part of a wave of singer-songwriters of the time that also included Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Cat Stevens, Carole King, John Denver, Jim Croce, Don McLean, and Jackson Browne, as well as Carly Simon, whom Taylor later married.

His 1976 album Greatest Hits was certified diamond and has sold more than 11 million copies. He has retained a large audience well into the 1990s and early 2000s, when some of his best-selling and most-awarded albums were released.
