I just called to say I love you

    G                            - D              G    - D

1. No New Year`s day      to celebrate,

                          G                                              Am - Am7

    no chocolate covered candy hearts to give away.

                       Am  - a7                   Am - Am7                   

    No first of spring,     no song to sing,

                         Am               D            G

   in fact here`s just another ordinary day.

 

                   G          D           G    D                   

2. No April rain, no flowers bloom,

                         G                                            Am - Am7

    no wedding Saturday within the month of June.

                      Am-Am7                      Am  - Am7                   

    But what it is,           is something true,

                        Am                             D                     G

    made up of these three words that I must say to you.

 

          Am         D     G             

I just called to say I love you,

           C           D                       Em

I just called to say how much I care.

         Am          D      G                      

I just called to say I love you,

            C                       D                    G

and I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

 

                            G - D                  G - D

3. No summer`s high,    no warm July,

                         G                                                 Am - Am7

    no harvest moon to light one tender August night.

                          Am  -  Am7                  Am     -  Am7

    No autumn breeze,           no falling leaves,

                   Am                     D                        G

    not even time for birds to fly the southern skies.

                   G  - D               G - D                

4. No Libra sun,  no Halloween,

                      G                                                    Am  - Am7

    no giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring.

                      Am-Am7                        Am  - Am7

    But what it is,          though old, so new

                      A                           D                        G

    to fill your heart like no three words could ever do.

                          G                                               Am - Am7

    no chocolate covered candy hearts to give away.

                     Am - Am7                         Am - Am7

    But what it is,              is something true,

                         Am                            D                     G

    made up of these three words that I must say to you.
