Lyrics

Well, the moon sank as the wind blew
And the street lights slowly died
Yeah they call you the wild one
Said stay away from her
Said she couldn't love no one if she tried

But then somethin' I saw in your eyes
Told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
The strangest feeling came over me down inside
No matter what it takes
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally held me
I will never regret baby
Those few hours linger on in my head forever

Well it's too bad but I want you
To know I understand
Yeah it's been a long time
But I don't mind, yeah it's all right
I understand

Because somethin' I saw in your eyes
Told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
The strangest feeling came over me down inside
I knew right away
I'd never get over how good it felt
When you finally kissed me
I will never regret baby
Baby, those few hours linger on in my head forever

C           - x32010

this song is played with two guitars, one playing the chords, and one 
fingerpicking them out. the fingerpicking guitar plays over the rhythm
during the verse, then goes away during the chorus. the verse goes like
this together, and the rest is easy to figure out if you listen to it.

They call you the wild one, said stay 'way from her
     Dsus           D             C
Said she could love no one if she tried


         C           G           D
But then somethin' I saw In your eyes 
                        C              G          D
told me right away That you were gonna have to be mine

Yeah, it's all right I understand

Beca use somethin' I saw

That you were gonna have to be mine
When the strangest feeling came over me
Down inside I knew right away
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally kissed me
I'll never regret
Baby those few hours
Will linger on in my head
Forever
