I Saw the Light
by Todd Rundgren
Recently re-recorded and released by Hal Ketchum

Intro: [Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G]

[Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G]
It was late last night, I was feeling something wasn't right,
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [Em]
there was not another soul in sight, only you, only you
[Am] [Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G]
So we walked along, though I knew that there was something wrong,
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [C7]
and a feeling hit me, oh, so strong about you
[Fmaj7] [Em7] [Am] [D7]
Then you gazed up at me and the answer was plain to see,
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [Dm7] [Dm7/G] [Cmaj7] [Dm7]
Cause I saw the light in your eyes in your eyes
[Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G]
Though we had our fling, I just never would suspect a thing
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [Em]
till that little bell began to ring in my head, in my head
[Am] [Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G]
But I tried to run, though I knew it wouldn't help me none,
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [C7]
cause I couldn't ever love no one, or so I said
[Fmaj7] [Em] [Am] [D7]
But my feelings for you were just something I never knew
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [Dm7] [Dm7/G] [Cmaj7]
[Dm7] [Dm7/G]
Til I saw the light in your eyes in your eyes

[G] [C] [Em] [Am]

[Am] [Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G]
But I love you best, it's not something that I say in jest,
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [C7]
cause you're different, girl, from all the rest in my eyes
[Fmaj7] [Em] [Am] [D7]
And I ran out before, but I won't do it anymore
[Dm7] [G] [Cmaj7] [Dm7] [Dm7/G]
Can't you see the light in my eyes
[Cmaj7] [Dm7] [Dm7/G]
In my eyes
[Cmaj7] [Dm7] [Dm7/G]
In my eyes
[Cmaj7] [Dm7] [Dm7/G]
In my eyes
