it didn't have to be you
Am9 D7 G6
i didn't even have to know you

if i never left my home in georgia
Am9 D7 G6
I never could have adored you
A7 D7
i never could have known, if I'd been on my own
E7
your sweet tender touch
Am Am/G#      D7
you didn't have to take my hand
G     F#7       B7
you didn't have to kiss my lips 
E7
you didn't have to love me too
Am9 D7 G6

(solo over entire form above)
E7
it didn't have to be you
Am9 D7 G6
we didn't have to stay together
A7
if we'd have gone our separate ways
Am9 D7 G6
we never would have shared these honey days
A7 D7
we never would have known, if we'd been on our own
E7
these precious children
Am Am/G#      D7
you still don't have to love me
G     F#7       B7
just because i love you
E7
oh but i know you do
Am9 D7     E7
