A Different Man



D  D/C#  GMaj7/B  G *





Gmaj7/B can also be called Bmsus4, played x20032





*on this intro and the chorus, the lead guitar just alternates between D


and G, but I think there's also rhythm (or just a "feel", using the bass


somehow, of a progression through D, Asus, Bm and G. See the Tab (!) below.





[A]Inside himself, He [Em]runs to look in the [G]mirror


[A]And the face that stares right back has [Em]never been any [G]clearer


[A]But look at the doubt in his eyes [Bm]He's not the one to [C]blame





D                  D/C#                    GMaj7/B


It was a different man, no he's never been here


               G                   D


You can be so close, you can be so near


                   D/C#                   GMaj7/B


It was a different man, playing different cards


              G                   D (overlaps start of verse)


You can be so soft, you can be so hard





Inside himself, He follows the wrong directions


Perfect English words all right But with the wrong inflections


But look at the dust at his feet He's not the one she loves





It was a different man, no he's never been found


You can be so up, you can be so down


It was a different man, no he's never been there


You can be halfway, you can be all there (repeat first chorus)





Instrumental bit


D   D/C#  G/B  G


G   Em    C    D


Em  F     G


G   G/F#  CMaj7/E   C





(NB:this last line is simply the intro transposed one key flat around the


chord cycle. I'm not sure of the Em in the second line, but I can't think


what else it might be)





Inside himself, He thinks that he looks the same


And the mind that thinks it all out Never noticed any change


But look at the doubt in his eyes He's not the one to blame





And here's the guitar tab for the intro etc...
