[C]Hey lady, [F]you lady, [C]cursin' [Am7]at your [Am]life. You're a [Dm]discontented [G]mother and a [Am]regimented [Am7]wife. [F]I've no doubt you [G]dream about the [C]things you'll [Am7]never do.[Am] But I [D]wish someone had a [Dsus4]talked to me like I [Csus4]wanna talk to [G]you. Oh, I've [C]been to Georgia and [G]California, oh, [Am]anywhere I could [Em]run. [F]Took the hand of a [C]preacher man and we [Dm]made love in the [G]sun. But I ran [C]out of places and [G]friendly faces be-[Am]cause I had to be [Em]free. [F]I've been to [C]paradise, but I've [Dm7]never [G]been to [C]me.[Csus4] [C]Please lady, [F]please lady, [C] don't just [Am7]walk [Am]away. Cause I [Dm]have this need to [G]tell you why I'm [Am]all alone today.[Am7] [F]I can see so [G]much of me still [C]living [Am7]in your [Am]eyes. Won't you [D]share a part of a [Dsus4]weary heart that has [Csus4]lived a million [G]lies? Oh, I've [C]been to Nice and the [G]isle of Greece. While I [Am]sipped champagne on a [Em]yacht. I [F]moved like Harlow in [C]Monte Carlo and [Dm]showed 'em what I've [G]got. I've been un-[C]dressed by kings and I've [G]seen some things, That a [Am]woman ain't s'posed to [Em]see. [F]I've been to [C]paradise, but I've [Dm7]never [G]been to [C]me.[Csus4] [C]Hey, you know what paradise is? [Csus4]It's a lie, a fantasy we create about. [C]People and places as we'd like them to be. [Csus4]But you know what truth is? [C]It's that little baby you're holding. [Csus4]And it's that man you fought with. [C]This morning, the same one you're going to make love with tonight. [F]That's a truth, [G]that's love. [Gsus4] Sometimes I've [C]been to cryin' for [G]unborn children. That [Am]might have made me com-[Em]plete. But I [F]took the sweet life and [C]never knew I'd be [Dm]bitter from the [G]sweet. I spent my [C]life exploring the [G]subtle whoring that [Am]cost too much to be [Em]free. Hey lady, [F]I've been to [C]paradise, but I've [Dm7]never [G]been to [C]me.[Csus4] [F]I've been to [C]paradise, but I've [Dm7]never [G]been to [C]me.
