Someone Else's Story
from CHESS
Music by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Capo: N/A

These chords are taken directly from the Piano/Vocal score of CHESS.

Using a capo is probably your best bet, so just transpose down a half step for each 
capo. (i.e. Capo: 6 = transpose 6 halfsteps down)
However, the modulation for the last verse up a half-step makes it relatively more 
difficult no matter how you choose to capo it.

| = precedes 4/4 measure
[ = precedes 2/4 measure


INTRO: 2 Bars of Gb


FIRST VERSE
    Gb             |  Cb               Dbsus - Db   |
    Long ago,   in |  Someone else's   life - time  |
    Gb               Ebmsus - Ebm |  Cb  -  [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch]  -  Abm  -  Db  |
    Someone with my  name,    who | looked a lot like me...       |
    Gb             Db   | Cb             Dbsus - Db     |
    Came to know,     a | man and made a prom - ise, he |
    Gb          Ebm9sus - Ebm  |  [ch]Gb/Db[/ch]   -   [ch]Ab7/C[/ch]  -  Db        |
    only had to say,       and | that's where she would be...     |

    [ch]Db/F[/ch]         Gb                  | [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch] - [ch]Gb7/Bb[/ch] -  Cb       |
    Lately, al - though her feelings | run    just as   deep, the |
    Ebm         [ch]Ebm/Db[/ch]            [ [ch]Ab/C[/ch]        | [ch]Gb/Db[/ch]            |
    promise she made has grown im-[ possible to | keep, and yet, I |
    [ch]Cb/Eb[/ch] - [ch]Db/F[/ch] - [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch]    | Cb              Dbsus - Db |
    wish it wasn't so...    | Will he miss me  if  -  I  |
    Gb         |  Cb    Db   |
    go?...     | ----------- |


SECOND VERSE
    Gb                | Cb                Dbsus - Db  |
    In a way,    it's | Someone else's    sto  -  ry, |
    Gb               Ebmsus - Ebm |  Cb  -  [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch]  -  Abm  -  Db  |
    I don't see my - self     as  |  taking  part at  all...      |
    Gb           Db  | Cb               Dbsus - Db  |
    Yesterday,     a | Girl that I was  fond   of,  |
    Gb            Ebmsus - Ebm  |  [ch]Gb/Db[/ch]  -  [ch]Ab/C[/ch]  -  Db        |
    Finally, could  see    the  |  writing   on  the  wall...   |

    [ch]Db/F[/ch]        Gb              | [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch]         Cb           |
    Sadly, she  realized, she'd | left him be - hind,    and |
    Ebm            [ch]Ebm/Db[/ch]            [ [ch]Ab/C[/ch]            |
    Sadder  than   that she knew he  [ wouldn't even   |
    [ch]Gb/Db[/ch]                       | [ch]Cb/Eb[/ch] - Dbsus/F - [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch]     |
    mind,  and though,  there's | nothing  left to  say...    |
    Cb               Dbsus - Db   |  Gb                 |
    Would he listen   if     I    |  stay?       (It's) |


BRIDGE
    D          Bm               | Gb                Cb  -  [ch]Gb/Bb[/ch]  |
    All very  well to say,  you | fool, it's now or nev  -  er,   |
    Bbm        F/A       | Abm        Db (4-3-2-1)  [ D (4-3-2-1) |
    I could be choosing, | no choices whatsoever... [-------------|


FINAL VERSE (Key Change)
    G              | C/E             D7sus - D7     |

    G              Em6  -  Em    | C   -    G/B   -   Am7  -   D  |
    Someone else's life,     and | he could  be  in   mine...     |
    G                  | C              Dsus - D     |
    I don't see      a | reason to be   lone - ly,   |
    G                 Emsus - Em   | G/D                 D         |
    I should take my  chan  -  ces | further down  the  line...    |

    D/F#        G                   |  F/A  -  G7   -    C         |
    And if that Girl I knew, should | ask     my  ad - vice.   Oh, |
    Em         Em/D           [ A7/C#            |
    I wouldn't hesitate,  she [ needn't  ask  me |
    G                          | C/E      [ch]Dsus/F#[/ch]   G/B          |
    twice...     Go now!   I'd | Tell her that for  free.  (The) |
    C               D7sus  -  D7  |  G       Em     |
    Trouble is, the  Girl     is  |  me...     The  |

    C               D7sus  -  D7  |  G              ||
    Story is,  the   Girl     is  |  me...          ||
