Intro:
    Am7  Bm7  Am7  G
    C  Bm7  Am7  G

Verse:
G                        Em
Some people live for the fortune
Am7                           D7
Some people live just for the fame
G                        E
Some people live for the power yeah
Am7                               D7
Some people live just to play the game

Bridge:
Gmaj7       Am7            Bm7      Am7
Some people think that the physical things
  Gmaj7  Am7     Bm7
Define what's within
Gmaj7             Am7
I've been there before
     Bm7          Am7
But that life's a bore
   Gmaj7       Am7     Bm7
So full of the superficial

Chorus:
            Cmaj7
Some people want it all
                 Bm7
But I don't want nothing at all
            Am7
If it ain't you baby
              Gmaj7
If I ain't got you baby
                 Cmaj7
Some people want dimond rings
               Bm7
Some just want everything
                     Am7 
But everything means nothing 
               Gmaj7
If I ain't got you

Verse -same chords as first-:
Some people search for a fountain
Promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them

Bridge -same chords as first-:
Hand me the world on a silver plater
And what good would it be  
No one to share
No one who truly cares fo me

Chorus:
            Cmaj7
Some people want it all
                 Bm7
But I don't want nothing at all
            Am7
If it ain't you baby
              Gmaj7
If I ain't got you baby
                 Cmaj7
Some people want dimond rings
               Bm7
Some just want everything
                     Am7 
But everything means nothing 
               Gmaj7
If I ain't got you

    Why not just fill in the chords

  2. Please fill the other bit in because its confusing as all hell

  3. If they weren’t too lazy, it would be VERY helpful to have the chords for the 2nd verse as well (along with the 2nd bridge as well!!!!!)

  4. NewLilUku

    I found it easier -2 and cheat a little bit by changing Fmaj7 for F. :p
