[V1]

E            G#             A              B*
Girl, you're looking mighty fine tonight,
    E     G#              Amaj7          B7*
and every guy has got you in his sights.
        A       G#m          F#m        E
So What are you doing with a clown like me,
A             G#m                  F#7
that's surely one of life's little mysteries

[CHORUS]

E            G#      A     B
So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
E        G#     Amaj7    B7
"How did I ever win your love?"
A          E   G#         C#m
What did I do? What did I say?
A              E               B       E       [E to B is 1 beat early)
   to make you turn your angel-eyes my way?

[V2]

E             G#            A                 B
Well, I'm the guy who never learned to dance,
E          G#       Amaj7          B7
never even got one second glance
A          G#m              F#m   E
  Across a crowded room was close enough,
A       G#m              F#7
I could look but I could never touch

[CHORUS]

E            G#      A     B
So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
E        G#     Amaj7    B7
"How did I ever win your love?"
A          E   G#         C#m
What did I do? What did I say?
A              E               B       E       [E to B is 1 beat early)
   to make you turn your angel-eyes my way?

[BRIDGE]

A  E    A    E      F#m7      C#m7
Don't anybody wake me, if this is a dream
                A    E           C#m7
'Cause this the best thing, ever happened to me
        A   E            F#m7         C#m
All you fellows, you can look all you like, 
         F#m                 G#m               A    B
but this girl you see, she's leavin' here with me tonight......

[V3]
        
E            G#                         A       B
Well There's just one more thing that I need to know,
E          G#               Amaj7    B7
if this is love why does it scare me so?
A          G#m           F#m     E
It must be somethin only you can see,
       A      G#m              F#7
'cause girl I feel it when you look at me

[CHORUS]

E            G#      A     B
So tonight I'll ask the stars above,
E        G#     Amaj7    B7
"How did I ever win your love?"
A          E   G#         C#m
What did I do? What did I say?
A           E               B       E       [E to B is 1 beat early)
to make you turn your angel-eyes my way?
A          E   G#         C#m
What did I do? What did I say?
A           E               B       E       [E to B is 1 beat early)
to make you turn your angel-eyes my way?............
