ONCE IN A WHILE ---------------
Music and Lyrics : Richard O'Brien (1974) Taken from the 1990 cast recording of "The Rocky Horror Show" Transcribed by : Phil Callan (pjc6@aber.ac.uk)
**I know that this isn't a particularly famous track, but I like it! Besides, people had already tabbed all the other good ones! These chords are taken from the 1990 cast recording version, so the key may be wrong for the version you're used to. Listen to the song for the rhythm of the changes.**
Intro : G (until you're ready.)
G Once in a while,
Am She don't want to call you,
D G Speaking on the telephone,
And once in your life,
Am She won't want to know you,
Bm C You look around, the one you found,
D And she is gone.
N.C G And that's all the time,
Am That it takes,
D G For a heart to turn to stone,
The sweeter the wine,
The harder to make the break,
Bm C You hear something about someone
D You thought you'd known
N.C. G So baby don't cry,
Am Like there's no tomorrow,
D G After the night there's a brand new day,
And there'll be no pain,
Am And no more sorrow,
Bm So wash your face,
C And call my place,
D It'll be OK,
(you get the idea of the chord sequence)
And that's all the time, That it takes, For a heart to beat again, So give me a sign, That a lover makes, You look around, the one you've found
D C Is back again (is back again)
D C Is back again (is back again)
D C Is back again (is back again)
(*single strums here*) C Am C G Is back a---gain.....
