Wonderful Tonight Chord Chart

This is my Wonderful Tonight chord chart by Eric Clapton. A nice and easy guitar song that uses the same 4 chords over and over again. How....wonderful ;)

OK, enough humor. If you know the chords, G, D, Em and C, then you are golden. The simplest way to play this song is with 4 down strums per chord but I will include a another strum for you below.

Strumming:
1 2  3+ 4+         
D D DU DU            

or:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D   DU    U DU

 
 
 


Wonderful Tonight Chord Chart
By Eric Clapton

Intro: G, D, C, D

Verse 1:
 G                          D          C                                        D

      It's late in the evening, she's wondering what clothes to wear.
 G                               D        C                             D
     She puts on her makeup, and brushes her long blond hair.
 C                           D         G                    Em
     And then she'd ask me:    "do I look alright?"
                    C                   D                G            D      C   D
And I say: "Yes you look wonderful tonight!"

Verse 2:
G                     D      C                        D

    We'd go to party,    and everyone turns to see
G                       D     C                            D
   this beautiful lady,      that's walking around with me.
 C                          D         G                      Em
    And then she'd ask me:  "do you feel alright?"
                   C            D                 G       D       C   D
And I say: "Yes I feel wonderful tonight!"


Bridge:
           C                  D                      G                     Em

I feel wonderful because I see the lovelight in your eyes,
               C               D                    C                  D
and the wonder of it all is that you just don't realize,
                     G              D       C   D
how much I love you!


Verse 3:

G                          D              C                          D              
    It's time to go home now,    and I've got an aching head
G                             D          C                                  D
    so I give her the car keys,   and she helps me to bed.
C                  D        G                           Em 
  And then I tell her,   as I turn off the light:
                  C                      D              G         D       C   D
I say: "my darling you are wonderful tonight!"

Bridge:
           C                  D                      G                     Em

I feel wonderful because I see the lovelight in your eyes,
               C               D                    C                  D
and the wonder of it all is that you just don't realize,
                     G              D       C   D G (hold)
how much I love you!
