For Once In My Life  Stevie Wonder


For [G]once in my [G+]life I have [G6]someone who [G7]needs me
[Am] Someone I've [F]needed so [D7]long
For [Am]once, un-a[F]fraid, I can [D7]go where life [D7#5]leads me
And [G]somehow I [D7]know I'll be [G]strong
Chorus 1:

For [G]once I can [G6]touch what my [E+]heart used to dream of
[C] Long before I [Am]knew [Dm7]    [D7]
[Gmaj7] Someone [Bm]warm like [Em]you
Would [Em7]make my [A7]dreams come [Am7]true [D7]

Verse 2:

[D7]For  [G]once in my [G+]life I won't [G6]let sorrow [G7]hurt me
[Am] Not like it [F]hurt me be-[D7]fore
For [Am]once, I have [F]something I [D7]know won't de-[D7#5]sert me
[G] I'm not a-[D7]lone any-[G]more

Chorus 2:

For [G]once, I can [G6]say, this is [E+]mine, you can't take it
As [C]long as I know I have [A7]love, I can make it
For [G]once in my [G+]life, I have [C]some-one [Am7]who [D7]needs [G]me
