   They're look-ing for a lit-tle ro-mance__ Giv-en half a chance
              Cm

        It's just you and me__ I'ts where I wan-na be
                      Eb  
        But I har-dly kno-o-o-o-ow__

Right Handed Charts:

Please Note: There are many different ways to play these chords. We have used voicings that are all within close proximity to each other.

The Gm run uses a particular voicing for easy transition from one chord to the next.

There are a couple of Eb major chords you can try. The first uses a D shape chord while the second uses a C shape chord with a mini barre on fret 3 - you can use a full barre over the first 5 strings for ease as it has no effect on the chord as all notes are covered on strings 4 & 5.
