NOTES: This song is one of Eric's best ballads, but
       unfortunately it's not very well-known. It is
       from his 1983 album "Money and Cigarettes" and
       it features both acoustic and electric guitar
       work. An acoustic strums the chords indicated
       above each line of tab, while the electric plays
       the tab parts.

LYRICS:

Pretty girl, you are the light of my life
I mean my everything
You are the one I chose to make my wife
Thatís why you wear my ring

And when Iím feeling down and out
You are the one who will bail me out
My love will always guide me home

Pretty girl, my pretty girl
Oh pretty girl, my pretty girl

Pretty girl, donít ever say goodbye
Donít ever let me be
If you do, you know that I would die
You mean that much to me

And when Iím feeling low and blue
You always know just what to do
My love will always guide me home

My pretty girl, oh pretty girl
My pretty girl, oh pretty girl

And when Iím feeling down and out
Youíre the one who will bail me out
My love will always guide me home
My pretty girl

Pretty girl, hear what I have to say
Itís something you should know
You brought me sunshine on my darkest day
Thatís why I love you so

And when my wandering day is through
Iíll always hurry back home to you
My love will always guide me home

My pretty girl, oh pretty girl
My pretty girl, oh pretty girl....
