My kind of girl    (video)    (midi)

 

                  A

1. When I saw you buying Cosmo and a Hot Rod Magazine,

        A

    I said to myself, "Now there's a girl for me !"

D

    And when I asked you to go for a ride,

A

    you stole my heart when you said, "If I can drive."

       E

    I said, "How 'bout some music?" You said, "You got any Merle?"

A   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   - E                     A

    That's when I knew you were        my kind of girl.

2. And when we started talking I could not believe my ears,

            A

    you said, you were a Braves fan, even through the rotten years.

              D

    You quoted William Parker, and Martin Luther King,

             A

    you said your favorite movie star would always be James Dean.

                E

    And when we went to dinner, you wore blue jeans with your pearls,

A   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   - E                     A

    That's when I knew you were        my kind of girl.

 

           D

You march to the beat of a different drum,

       A

the funny thing is that I hear the same one.

        B7

We both like to color outside of the lines.

             E                                  E7

we're peas in a pot, girl, we're two of a kind !

3. I said, "I think I love you" you said, "What's not to love?"

          A

    I thought about a kiss, but I wasn't quick enough.

        D

    I guess while I was thinking you were reading my mind,

                          A

    ’cause you wrapped your arms around me,

 

    and you pressed your lips to mine.

             E

    You set my head a spinning just like a tilt-a-whirl,

A   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   - E                    A
