Intro Verse:

I guess I've got a heart meant for fooling ar[E7/9]ound with chicks,

'Cause in that l[G/B]ove department, I know all the ladies' tricks.

Now I ran across a girl one day, she was as sharp as a girl could be,

And I wasn't sur[Bm7-5]prised to hear her say that she really [G/B]went for me.


She said I was the best man who ever knocked on her door;

Edim A7 Dalt D G Edim D
She said I was the best man, the fella she'd waited for.

She said I was the best man at dancing, and nobody can deny

That when it came to romancin' I[Bm7-5] was the A-plus [G/B]number[Cm7-5] one guy.

But then she met my best friend and knocked him right off his pins,

Edim A7 Dalt D G6 Cdim G6
But still I wasn't worrried, 'cause the best man always wins.

The way it all turned [G/F#]out, there[D6/9/F#] was no doubt

That I was best man in the end;

Yes, I was the [E7/9]best man when she married my best friend.

Instrumental interlude: first half of refrain

Repeat Second Half of Refrain


So don't you think you're best til you pass the test

And you know all the[C#m7-5] ladies' tricks,

'Cause [E7/9]you'll wind[Bm7-5] up as the [E7/9]best man

While the other guy gets the chicks.
