Wanted, a Woman

 

{C}Wanted: a {Am}woman, a {F}woman who {C}loves

The {F}dance of her {G}heartbeat, {C}beauty and {Am}truth,

A {F}woman who {G}loves {C}flowers and {Am}music, {F}flowers and {G}music and {C}love.

 

This ad I {Am}put in the {F}Times-Pica{C}yune

To {F}find in New {G}Orleans, a {C}city of {Am}music,

A {F}woman who {G}loves {C}flowers and {Am}music, {F}flowers and {G}music and {C}love.

 

I asked her to {Am}write to a {F}post office {C}box.

It {F}must be a {G}secret to {C}want such a {Am}thing,

A {F}woman who {G}loves {C}flowers and {Am}music, {F}flowers and {G}music and {C}love.

 

But what kind of {Am}person {F}reads a news{C}paper

For {F}personal {G}adís for {C}people a{Am}lone?

And {F}what kind of {G}person {C}writes out of {Am}blindness

To a {F}person a{G}shamed to be {C}known, a{F}shamed to be {G}known for his {C}love.

 

So I sit on this {Am}levy as the {F}river moves {C}on,

{F}Hoping to {G}find her by {C}singing this {Am}song,

A {F}woman who {G}loves the {C}dance of her {Am}heartbeat,

{F}Flowers and {G}music, {C}beauty and {Am}truth: {F}flowers and {G}music and {C}love;

{F}A woman who {G}loves, who loves {C}love; {F}flowers and {G}music and {Am}love,

{F}Flowers and {G}music and {C}love.
