Group: The Verve
Music: The Verve
Lyrics: Richard Ashcroft
Hut Recordings, (72438404372)

I have had trouble finding a chording of History to my satisfaction. All
of the versions that I have come across have been flawed in many ways.
But I found a reasonable one on a Verve site and have used this as my
base for this one. I must then thank Atienza and Dutcher for theirs was
the base for this work here. Bear in mind that I have only been able to
complete this after discovering a chord (Asus4) used in The Verve's new
album Urban Hymns. I hope this feels better than other chords around. It
certainly does for me. Also their version has a different intro - one
that sounds completely wrong and their Cmaj7 is incorrect - I prefer a a
Cmaj with a G on high E string.)However, the lyrics on the copy were
superb and I have used them and the structure provided.

Verse 1
-------
G		    D
I wander the lonely streets...
Asus4		     E	              E7
Behind where the old Thames does flow.
G		    D
And in every face I meet...
A			  E      E7
Reminds me of what I have run for.


Bridge
------
Am7
In every man, in every hand,
Em
In every kiss you understand,
C1
That living is for other men,
D
I hope you too understand...


Verse 2
-------
G                       D
I've got to tell you my tale...
Asus4                      E    E7
Of how I loved and how I failed...
G                D
I hope you understand?
A                            E       E7
These feelings should not be in the man.


Bridge
------
Am7
In every child, in every eye,
Em
In every sky above my head...
C1
I hope that I know,
D
So come with me in bed.


Chorus
------
            Am
Because its you and me we're history
Em
There ain't nothing left to say
    C1                  D
When I...will get you alone...


Verse 3
-------
G                     D
Maybe we could find a room?
      Asus4              E
Where we could see what we should do...
G                  D
Maybe you know its true?
A                            E         E7
Well, living with me is like keeping a fool.


Bridge
------
Am7
In every man, in every hand,
Em
In every kiss you understand,
C1
That living is for other men,
D
I hope you know that I am me...


Chorus (Reprise)
----------------
Am7				Em
So come on, I'm thinking about history,
		C1
And I'm living for history,
			  D
And I think you know I'm bound for you,

Cause I am...


Bridge (Reprise)
----------------
Am7              		     Em
And one and one is two, but three is company
				C1
When you're thinking about the things you do,
			       D
And you're thinking about the things you do...


Verse 4
-------
G                   D
I wanna tell you my tale...
      Asus4                       E
How I fell in love and jumped out on my bail...
G           D
Do you understand?
        A                    E
There's more in a smile that in a hand.


Bridge
------
Am7
In every sky, in every kiss
        Em
There's one thing that you've might have missed
  C1                       D
Oh, why am I going to a place that now belongs to you?

Chorus
------
Am7
But you and me, and so am I
     Em
Lets make it up
     C1
Lets even try to live today, so why not smile?
      D
Don't dream away your life...

			      It is mine...
          C1
Is that a crime?
          D
Is that a crime?
             Am7		     Em
This life is mine, but the bed ain't made,
		   C1   			D
Its filled full of hope, I've got a skinfull of dope...
