If


by Bread (David Gates)
If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show
The you I've come to know

Aadd2 - - - / Amaj9 - - - / Em6 - - - / D6 - - - /
Dm6 - - - / A - - - /Bdim - - - / E7 - - - //

If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go?
There's no one here but you
You're all that's left me too

And when my love for life is running dry
You'll come and pour yourself on me

F#m - - - / F#m/F - - - / F#m/E - - - / D - - - /
C#m - - - / F# - - - / Bm - - - / E - - - //

If a man could be two places
At one time, I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way

If the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through

Then one by one the stars would all go out
Then you and I would simply fly away

F#m - - - / F#m/F - - - / F#m/E - - - / D - - - /
C#m - - - / F# - - - / Bm - - - / Esus11 - - - //
( A - - - / Asus4 - - - / Asus4 - - - / A - - - //)
