ABBA - I Can Be That Woman: chords

          A#                     D#
You're asleep on the couch with Tammy
         F                    A#
And she looks straight up at me
                              D#
The reproach in her eyes is imagined
         F                   A#
But the pain that I feel is real
           Gm                    F
She jumps down and her tail is swishing
        D#           Cm          F
Like a feather right under your nose
              Gm   D#             F    A#
And then you wake up and you're bleary-eyed
F/A         D#            F        A#
I say "I'm sorry", I can see you cried

You look frail as you stand before me
Then you curse and kick a chair
And the dog, bless her heart, licks my fingers
But she jerks every time you swear
I feel sick and my hands are shakin'
This is how all our fights have begun
You say you've had it and you say, "Screw you"
I say I love you and I know it's true

Chorus:
D#                       A#
You're not the man you should have been
F                   A#
I let you down somehow
(Not the one I could've been)
D#                   A#
I'm not the woman I could have been
(I can be that woman)
F                        A#
But I can be that woman now

You're confused when you turn to face me
Is it true or is she drunk?
But it's clear that I've hit my rock bottom
I'm aware of how far I've sunk
And the dog is the first to feel it
There's a shimmer of hope in your eyes
You can't believe it, but you're close to tears
Oh God, I'm sorry for the wasted years

Chorus:
(Not the one I could've been)
You're not the man you should have been
(I let you down)
I let you down somehow
(Not the one I could've been)
I'm not the woman I could have been
(I can be that woman)
But I can be that woman now
