This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

Words and music by Cat Stevens
Transcribed by T-rev www.t-rev.net

Am                     Dm            G
  Now that I've lost everything to you
              C                       F
  You say you want to start something new
           Dm                       E
  And it's breaking my heart you're leaving
            Esus4 E
  Baby, I'm grieving

  But if you want to leave, take good care
  Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
F            Dm                      E    G G7 G6 G
  But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

  C      G                F
      Oh baby baby it's a wild world
  G                    F              C
      It's hard to get by just upon a smile
      Oh baby baby it's a wild world
      I'll always remember you like a child, girl
  Dm  E

  You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
  And it's breaking my heart in two
  'Cause I never want to see you sad girl
  Don't be a bad girl

  But if you want to leave take good care
  Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
  But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware
  Beware

      chorus

  Baby I love you
  But if you want to leave take good care
  Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
  But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware
