Woman In Love by Barbra Streisand

Intro: 4/4 
|  Ebm  |  Ebm  | Cbmaj7  | Cbmaj7  - Db  |  Ebm  |  Ebm  |  Cbmaj7  |  Cbmaj7  |      

Ebm          Abm         Ebm
1. Life is a mo-ment in space
             Abm     Cbmaj7        Db7         Gb
   When the dream is gone__ It's a lone-li-er place
Dbm                         Cb
   I kiss the morn-ing good-bye
           Ebm7  Abm7                           Bb7
   But down in - side you know__ We nev-er know why

Ebm            Abm         Ebm
2. The road is nar-row and long
        Abm       Cbmaj7         Db7           Gb
   When eyes meet eyes__ And the feel-ing is strong
Dbm                       Gb
   I turn a-way from the wall
      Cb           Gb           Cb         Bb7
   I stum-ble and fall__ But I give you it all

     Ebm       Bb        Ebm
Chorus: I am a wo-man in love
                Bb       Ebm               Bb        Ebm
        And I'd do a-ny-thing__ To get you in-to my world
             Bb           Ebm 
        And hold you with-in
                Db          Abm
        It's a right__ I de-fend
                           Gb
        O-ver and o-ver a-gain
      |  Ebm        |   Ebm   |  Cbmaj7  |  Cbmaj7  |
        What do I do?

Ebm           Abm        Ebm
3. With you e-ter-nal-ly mine
       Abm     Cbmaj7    Db7          Gb
   In love there is__ No meas-ure of time
Dbm                          Cb
   We planned it all at the start
             Ebm7   Abm7                        Bb7
   That  you  and    I__  Live in each oth-er's heart

Ebm         Abm        Ebm
4. We may be o-ceans a-way
       Abm    Cbmaj7    Db7           Gb
   You feel my love__ I hear what you say
Dbm                    Gb
   No truth is ev-er a lie
      Cb           Gb           Cb         Bb7
   I stum-ble and fall__ But I give you it all

     Ebm       Bb        Ebm
Chorus: I am a wo-man in love
                Bb       Ebm               Bb        Ebm
        And I'd do a-ny-thing__ To get you in-to my world
             Bb           Ebm 
        And hold you with-in
                Db          Abm
        It's a right__ I de-fend
                           Gb
        O-ver and o-ver a-gain       (2/4)   (4/4)  
      |  Ebm        |  Ebm  |  B9  |  B9  |
        What do I do?         (key change)

        And I'm talk-in' to you__ You know how you feel
               B          Em
        What a wo-man can do
                 D         Am
        It's a right I de-fend
                           B7
        O-ver and o-ver a-gain

      Em       B          Em
Chorus: I am a wo-man in love  
                B        Em                B         Em
        And I'd do a-ny-thing__ To get you in-to my world
             B            Em 
        And hold you with-in
                 D           Am
        It's a right__ I de-fend
                           B
        O-ver and o-ver a-gain... repeat and fade     

Notes:
  • There are a lot of barre chords due to the key so I have added open positions for anyone wanting alternative chord voicings, some of which are very nice.
  • The key of Ebm has the same Key signature as Gb Major which has 6 flats - Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Cb hence the chords.
  • Remember that these chords have enharmonic equivalents therefore chords like Db, Gb and Cb are often played as C#, F# and B respectively, but due to the key signature we have to name the chords in accordance to the stated key.
  • There are several tempo changes from 4/4 to 2/4 back to 4/4. I have only included the one after the second chorus, but there are several others which are all indicated in the Sheet Music. However, if you are familiar with the song, you will be fine with the song chart above.
