A Touch of Paradise by John Farnham

Intro: 4/4
   || Bongos |  %  ||  A   |   D   |   A   |   D   |

 A                       D
1. Fla-min-gos walk and sway in peace
 A                            D
   See-ing this it makes my trou-bles cease
 A                                D
   The sun is hid-ing leav-ing a pink scar,
                    A
   That stretch-es right a-cross the sky,
                     D
   That's all we've seen so far

Bm               |  E      /        D   E  |
   And all I do is look in-to your eyes.

      A                            D
Chorus: For that spe-cial touch of pa-ra-dise,
      A                          D
        Just a touch, a touch of pa-ra-dise,
    A/F#                        D      E
        Just a special touch of pa-ra-dise.

 A                           D
2. You hold my hand, that's when we kiss.
            A                                   D
   And it does-n't take long no, no, for me to get the gist
 A                               D
   Of this love that stretch-es out a-cross the land,
          A                         D
   Where rain-bows flash, as we're walk-ing in the sand.

Bm               |  E      /        D   E  |
   And all I do is look in-to your eyes.


      A                            D
Chorus: For that spe-cial touch of pa-ra-dise,
      A                          D
        Just a touch, a touch of pa-ra-dise,
    A/F#                        D      E
        Just a special touch of pa-ra-dise.

      C                       D
Bridge: A touch of spring and au-tumn sweet
                   A
        Well the trees vi-brate when our eyes meet
      C                            D
        And I think of all the love that we have been mak-ing
      A                          D        E      |  D/F#  |  E  |
        You touch my hand and I walk off shak-ing


Intro:  |  A  |  D  |  A  |  D  |  A  |  D  |  A  |  D  |

      A                          D      E
        Just a touch, a touch of pa-ra-dise.

      A                          D
Chorus: Just a touch, a touch of pa-ra-dise,(Yeah-eh yeah)
      A                         D
        Just a special touch of pa-ra-dise, (Oh show me)
      A                          D      E

        Just a special touch of pa-ra-dise, (Oh show me)
      A                          D      E
        Just a touch, a touch of pa-ra-dise.
