How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)
James Taylor
(Holland, Dozier, Holland) 1964

How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G G7]
How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G C7]

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were [G Em D C7]
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
and there you were [G Em D C7]
With sweet love and devotion
deeply touching my emotion [G C7 G C7]
I want to stop and thank you baby [G C7]
I just want to stop and thank you baby [G]

How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G G7]
How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G C7]

I close my eyes at night,
wondering where would I be without you in my life [G Em D C7]
Everything I did was just a bore,
everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before [G Em D C7]
But you brightened up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways [G C7 G C7]
I want to stop and thank you baby [G C7]
I want to stop and thank you baby [G]

How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G G7]
How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G C7]

You were better for me than I was for myself [G C7]
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else [G C7]
I want to stop and thank you baby [G C7]
I just want to stop and thank you baby [G]

How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G G7]
How sweet it is to be loved by you [C Am D7 G C7
