Special thanks to Howard Wright for suggesting the barre chord 
on the 10th fret instead of whatever it was that I had before.

2nd verse: 

Help me, I think I'm falling 
In love too fast 
It's got me hoping for the future 
And worrying about the past 
'Cause I've seen some hot hot blazes 
Come down in smoke and ash 
We love our lovin' 
But not like we love our freedom 
  

Middle 8:

555555 
|||||| 
Oh, didn't it feel good we were sitting there talking 
or lying there not talking didn't it feel good? 

|||||| 
333333 
|||||| 
You danced with a lady with a hole in her stocking 
Didn't it feel good?  Didn't it feel 
  

||||||     ||||||    ||||||     |||||| 
002345     555555    002345     555555 
||||||     ||||||    ||||||     |||||| 
goo     -  oo      - oo         ood  - Didn't it feel good?
  

||||||     ||||||      ||||||      ||||||      ||||||      |||||| 
555556     777778      555556      777778      555556      777778 
||||||     ||||||      ||||||      ||||||      ||||||      |||||| 
  

3rd verse: 

Help me, I think I'm falling 
In love with you 
Are you going to let me go there by myself 
That's such a lonely thing to do 
Both of us flirting around 
Flirting and flirting 
Hurtin too 
We love our lovin' 
But not like we love 
  

||||||    ||||||     ||||||     |||||| 
777777    555555     333333     002300 
||||||    ||||||     ||||||     |||||| 
our       free  -     ee -      dom
