    A Thing Called Love

    by Johnny Cash
    Intro [C] [Bb] [F] [G]

    Six foot [C] six he stood on the ground
    He weighed two hundred and thirty-five pounds
    But I saw that [Dm] giant of a man brought [G] down
    To his knees by [C] love

    He was the kind of [C] man that would gamble on luck
    Look you in the eye and never back up
    But I saw him [Dm] crying like a little whipped [G] pup
    Because of [C] love

    ( Chorus
    You can't see it with your [C] eyes, hold it in your [F] hands
    But like the [Em] wind it covers our [Am] land
    Strong enough to [F] rule the heart of any [Dm] man
    This thing called [G] love
    It can lift you [C] up never let you [F] down
    Take your [Em] world and turn it [A7] around
    Ever since [C] time nothing's ever been [G] found
    That's stronger than [C] love )

    Most men are like me, they struggle and doubt
    They trouble their minds day in and day out
    Too busy with livin' to worry about
    A little word like love

    But when I see a mother's tenderness
    As she holds her young close to her breast
    Then I thank god that the world's been blessed
    With a thing called love

    Chorus (repeating the line)
    Ever since [C] time nothing's ever been [G] found
    That's stronger than [C] love

    Chorus X4-ever

    (Come on guys, cheer up!)
    (Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
    (I mean - what have you got to lose?)
    (You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
    What have you lost? Nothing!)
