A beggar in love    (video)

 

    C - D# - G - G7

 

    C                       

1.     I wander up and down love’s highway

                                            A  A7

    forever searching every byway

A                    A7                              D

    for tender words you may throw my way,

              D7           G    

    I’m a beggar in love.

 

     C

2.         I may be wrong, but I don’t care, dear,

                                                   A      A7

    I’ll take the kisses you can spare, dear,

A                      A7                      D               - F

    and still be thankful for my share, dear,

              G             C

    I’m a beggar in love.

 

F                     G    - Em          Am    - F                   G            C     - C7

    But like an actor        on a stage,       I wouldn’t trade my part,

Dm                 E          C         Am   - D                      D7       G      - G7

    I wouldn’t want to play the king        in someone else’s heart.

 

      C                 

3.       Although the road I walk is lonely,

                                                       A    A7

    I know that heart and soul you own me,

A                       A7                          D      - F

    so please be kind to one who’s only

         G             C        

    a beggar in love.        + D# - F - Fm - Bb

 

D#                   F    - Dm         Gm    - D#                  F            Bb    

    But like an actor        on a stage,        I wouldn’t trade my part,

Cm                 D         Bb       Gm   - C                     C7        F

    I wouldn’t want to play the king       in someone else’s heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      Bb                 

3.       Although the road I walk is lonely

                                                       G          - G7

    I know that heart and soul you own me,

G                       G7                         C      - D#

    so please be kind to one who’s only

         F                     Bb

    a beggar for your love.
