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
