Wonderful Tonight-(Eric Clapton/Marcella Detroit)

chords

 

How I would play my arrangement of this song

strumming DD/UUD  Intro G D C D  Use Gadd5 Cadd9 
Intro G D C D  (see below)
G                D     C                        D                       
It's late in the evening she's wondering what clothes to wear 
G             D        C                 D
She puts on her make up and brushes her long blond hair
C             D       G            Em
and then she asks me  do I look alright 
           C            D          G (As intro) 
and I say yes  you look wonderful tonight 
 
verse 2
We go to a party and everyone turns to see 
this beautiful lady is walking around with me 
and then she asked me do you feel alright
and I say yes I feel wonderful tonight

 

(G7 To bridge)
         C         D               G                    Em
I feel wonderful because I see the love light in your eyes 
        C            D                C              D
and the wonder of it all  is that you just don't realize 
          G
how much I love you
 
verse 3
It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head
so I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed
and then I tell her as I turn off the lights
I say my darling you were wonderful tonight
oh my darling  you were wonderful tonight
