Someone Else



B|----1------------------0-0---strum Em--|
D|--2---2--strum Am----2-----------------|

              And heading down was my destiny -
Dm F (turn on distortion here if you want!)
But yesterday, I swear,
             That was someone else, not me!

If you're playing an open G here, a fun idea is to alternate between G
and Gsus4 (the same shape as G, but with your little finger
pulling on and off the 5th fret on the high E string.)
Do this a few times (or just strum up a storm with G) and then use
barre chords for the chorus:

     Here I stand, at the crossroads' edge,
     Afraid to reach out for eternity..
     One step, when I look do-o-wn,
(Play the intro twice here)
I see someone else, not me

The second chorus ends a little differently:
G Am (ring) G (ring) Am (ring) G(ring)
But it's somewhere out of reach I keep looking back
Am(ring) G(ring) Am(ring) G(ring) Am(ring) G(ring)
Looking back Looking back and I see Someone else...

After the second chorus, go straight to the bridge and play the final chorus.
When playing the last few lines, use the same chord progression as at the
end of the second chorus.

End on Am ("me...?")

That's it. If anyone has tabs for the full band version, please let me know!!
