TENDER WHEN I WANT TO BE
By: Mary Chapin Carpenter
From: Charlie Schweitzer (CccSchw@AOL.Com)


(Intro)  F  Bb  C  F        Bb/C,  F  Bb  C  F
(STOP)                              F
(1st Verse)  I have a heart that's proud you bet.
                   Bb
I have a mind that won't forget, 
                          C                                       F
And I have arms that are strong and yet, tender when they want to be.
Bb         C                 F
   You can be the will that finds the way, 
                        Bb
You can be the one who saves the day,
                               C                                    F 
But show me tender when its's time to say.  Exactly how it ought to be.

                                 Gm           C
(Chorus)  And I never would have known it Dar, 
             F               Am
If I hadn't known about you.  
                      Bb                          C
You said everyone can be a rock and, roll like a river too.


(STOP)                                        F
(2nd Verse)  Well something happens when you find someone
                            Bb
Makes you feel like you can do no wrong.
                           Gm          Am
You don't have to take the whole world on, 
         Bb                     F  Bb                   F
Just be tender when you want to be.  Sha La La La La La La


(Lead)  F  Bb  C  F  Bb/C,       F  Bb  C  F

                                 Gm		 
(Chorus)  And I never would have known it Babe, 
             Am		 
If I hadn't known about you.  
                      Bb                          C
You said everyone can be a rock and, roll like a river too.

                                  F                            Bb
(3rd V.)  So let the waters carry us away, wave goodbye to the old parade.
                 C                                     F
Baby when we're unafraid, to be tender when we want to be.
Bb                       F                                   Bb
All the waters wash our cares away, all that we can see are better days.
                  Gm    Am        Bb                    F  F/C
Don't ever let me hesitate, to be tender when I want to be. 
F      C           F/C F       C           F/C F       C         F/C(X4)
Sha La La La La La La   Sha La La La La La La   Sha La La La La La La
