                Man of great promise acoustic as played on better later than never with jools holland

Notes - Capo 2nd Fret, CHORD SHAPES PLAYED ASSUMING THE CAPO IS 
THE NUT, mess around with the am and d chords as the weller puts in 
suttle variationseach time 7ths and stuff. The chord I called f#m7b5
sounds good in both shapes i have shown I dont know if this is the
right name but who gives a f**k it sounds good. On the g to f# move 
just hit the f# on the e string with some nice vibrato, then play the
open strings.

A basic song yes but it sounds very good when played with feeling

INTRO -
   Em                  Am Am7

I bought the paper yesterday
       D         G G/F#
And I saw the obituary
        Em                      Am Am7
And I read of how you died in pain
         D                G G/F#
Well I just couldn´t understand it
Em                 Am Am7
If I could of changed that
    D             G G/F#
The Lord knows I´d do it now
   Em                      Am Am7
But there is no going back
             D            Gmaj7     G7
And what´s done is done forever
Cmaj7     
But you were always chained
        D
And shackled by the dirt
F#m7b5
Of every small town institution
       B7
And every big town flirt

 Em Am D G G/F#

Same pattern as first time round but with lyrics below

      
And I think of what you might have been

A man of such great promise

Oh but, you seem to forget the dream
        
And the more you saw you hated
     
But let´s not talk of blame
     
For what is only natural
      
Like a moth going to a flame
    
You had a dangerous passion
    
But you were always chained
      
And shackled by the dirt

Of every small town institution
      
And every big town flirt


Em              Am Am7
All the things that you might have been
     D          G G/F#
But who am I to say?
         Em
Still I wonder
         Am                 D            G G/F#
If it´s in the cold earth you prefer to lay
Em           Am
Oh, If it´s in the cold earth
D             G G/F#
You prefer to stay
Em  

Am  D  G
