Love The One You're With

Words & Music:

Stephen Stills


[basic riff for verses, etc.:]

G(7)      D(5)      Em(3)          D(2)


If you're down and confused.

And you don't remember who you're talking to.

Concentration slip away,

'Cause your baby is so far away.



                Bm        A      G

Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove.

And the eagle flies with the dove.

And if you can't be with the one you love, honey

               [original riff]

Love the one you're with.  [4x]


Don't be angry, don't be sad.

Don't sit crying over good times you've had.

There's a girl right next to you.

And she's just waiting for something to do.





C           D            C           D

Do do do do do do do do, do do do do do do do do

Do do do do do do do do, do do do, do do do

Love the one you're with.  [3x]


Turn your heartache right into your joy.

She's a girl, and you're a boy.

Get it together make it nice.

Ain't gonna need anymore advice.




BRIDGE:  [end after the last "do" section]
