Alicia Keys: A Woman's Worth


alicia keys: a woman's worth

From Wikipedia:

"A Woman's Worth" is a song by American singer–songwriter Alicia Keys. A piano-driven soul ballad with elements of contemporary R&B and neo soul, it was written by herself and musician Erika Rose and produced by Keys for her debut album, Songs in A Minor (2001).
The track was released as the album's second single in February 2002 following the worldwide success of her debut single the previous year, and became another top ten success for Keys in New Zealand and the United States, where it also reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The accompanying music video, directed by Chris Robinson, is a continuation of the "Fallin'" video and explored what happens when Keys' onscreen love interest gets released from prison and he tries to acclimate to society.
The clip was nominated for both Best R&B Video and Best Cinematography at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, while the song won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Song in the same year.



You'll find lots of chord charts online if you do a Google search but I thought I'd share the chords that I'm playing in the song.


Intro: Em D6 Cmaj7 B7 E5 Em Bm Am7 Bm7


Verse 1:
                 Em                         Bm
You could buy me diamonds, you could buy me pearls 
             Am7                     Bm7
Take me on a cruise around the world, baby you know I'm worth it 
              Em                     Bm
Dinner lit by candles, run my bubble bath
                Am7                 Bm7 
Make love tenderly to last and last, baby you know I'm worth it 


Bridge 1:
      Am             G6          D/F#         Em     D
Wanna please, wanna keep, wanna treat your woman right 
         Am           G6            D/F#          Em          D
Not just dough but a show that you know she is worth your time 
         Am           G6        D/F#      Em       D
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first 
    B7                                   
She will if she can find a man who knows her worth

Chorus:
             Em7                              Bm7
'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he sees her 
      Am7                         Bm7
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her 
      Em7                                 Bm7
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first 
      Am7                      Bm7
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth 
 
Em Bm7 Em Bm7 
 
 Verse 2:
                Em7                           Bm 
If you treat me fairly, I'll give you all my goods 
                 Am7               Bm7
Treat you like a real woman should, baby I know you're worth it 
             Em                      Bm
If you never play me, promise not to bluff 
              Am7                       Bm7
I'll hold you down when shit gets rough, baby I know you're worth it 


Bridge 2:
        Am    G6              D/F#          Em          D
She walks the mile, make you smile, all the while being true 
      Am        G6         D/F#          Em          D
Don't take for granted the passion that she has for you 
         Am           G6         D/F#      Em       D
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first 
    B7           
She will if she can't find a man who knows her worth ohhhh
(Chorus)


Coda:
   Am7             Bm7                     Cmaj7 Bm7 Am9
No need to read between the lines, spelled  out for you 
     Am7                        Bm7                   Cmaj7 Bm7 Am7
Just hear this song 'cause you can't go wrong when you value 
  B7
A woman, woman, woman, a woman's worth 
(Chorus x2)


Outro: (repeat until fade)
Em   Bm7          Am7 Bm7 Em
