If You Were The Woman, And I Was The Man

Michael Timmins


If [G] you were the [Em] woman and [C] I was the [D] man
would I [G] send you yellow [Em] roses
would I [C] dare to kiss your [D7] hand?
In the [Em] morning would I ca- [Am] ress you
Like the [C] wind caresses the [D7] sand,
if [C] you were the [Am] woman and [D] I was the [G] man?

If [G] I was the [Em] woman [C] and you were the [D] man
would you [G] send me yellow [Em] roses
would you [C] dare to kiss my [D7] hand?
In the [Em] morning would you ca- [Am] ress me
as the [C] wind caresses the [D7] sand,
if [C] I was the [Am] woman [D] and you were the [G] man?

If [G] I was the [Em] heart and [C] you were the [D] head
would you [G] think me very [Em] foolish
if one [C] day I decided to [D7] shed
these [Em] walls that sur- [Am] round me
just to [C] see where these feelings [D7] led,
if [C] I was the [Am] heart and [D] you were the [G] head?

[Am7] [Bm] [Cm] [Bm] [Am7] [Bm] [Am] [G]

If [G] I was the [Em] woman and [C] you were the [D] man
would I [G] laugh if you [Em] came to me
with your [C] heart in your [D7] hand
and said, I [Em] offer you this [Am] freely
and will [C] give you all that I [D7] can
because [C] you are the [Am] woman
and [D] I am the [G] man?

bbkim's note: Mike says this was written in Ab tuning. It sounds nearly the same as the
recording if you play the chords above with a capo at the first fret. Or to play in Ab tuning, without a capo, just like the recording:

G  = Ab  (466544)
Em = Fm  (133111)
C  = Db  (446664)
D  = Eb  (668886)
D7 = Eb7 (668686)
Am = Bbm (688666)
