[Verse 1]
A chord diagramBMaj7Bmaj7
This girl I know needs some shelter, She don't believe anyone can help her
A chord diagramBsus4Bsus4                         Em/B                 A chord diagramBMaj7Bmaj7
She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage, But you don't want to get involved
                             Em/B

But you could put your arms around her

If you left her just the way you found her
