Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Words & Music:


Yep.  These are the chords as given in The Police's own book.  Another, easier version subs the verse vamp with:  G  A  Bm  Cm and the chorus chords with G to C [two beats each].  There is a nice acoustic guitar version of this in the July 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar.


G    G/A    G/B   A/C#  [verse vamp]


            G               G/A

Though I've tried before to tell her

         G/B              A/C#       G  G/A  G/B  A/C#

Of the feelings I have for her in my heart.

        G              G/A

Every time that I come near her,

       G/B               A/C#              D G A  D G A  D G A  D

I just lose my nerve as I've done from the start.



A                      D/C  A/C# D

Every little thing she does is-- magic.

Everything she do just turn me on.

Even though my life before was tragic.

A                       D/C A/C#   Bb    C/F    G    G/A    G/B    A/C#

Now, I know my love for her goes on.


Do I have to tell the story of a thousand rainy days since we first met?

It's a big enough umbrella – but it's always me that ends up getting wet.



[transition chords out of this chorus:]  Bb    C/F    Bb    C/F


Bb           Am7        Gm7                 Am7

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day

Gm7                   Am7     Bb                     Am7

And ask her if she'll marry me in some old-fashioned way.

       Bb                C                 Bb               C

But my silent fears have gripped me long before I reach the phone.

       Bb                  C

Long before my tongue has tripped me.

       Bb     C    D G A   D G A   D G A   D

Must I always be alone?
