THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD from The Man Who... 


INTRO:  A7  Dm  F  Dm


                   A7
We passed upon the stair
                        Dm
We spoke of was and when
                  A7
Although I was'nt there 
                        F
He said I was his friend
                      C
Which came as some surprise 
                 A7
I spoke into his eyes
                    Dm
I thought you died alone 
                  C  C
A long long time ago


CHORUS 1:
   C      F
Oh no not me 
  Bb            F
I never lost control 
       C       F
You're face to face 
         Bb              
With the man who sold the world


BREAK:  A7  Dm  F  Dm


                        A7
I laughed and shook his hand 
                         Dm
And made my way back home
                        A7
I searched for form and land 
                            F
For years and years I roamed
                 C
I gazed a gazley stare 
                    A7
At all the millions here 
                   Dm
We must have died alone 
                 C   C
A long long time ago


CHORUS 2:
    C          F
Who knows, Not me 
   Bb            F
We never lost control 
       C       F  
You're face to face 
         Bb               
With the man who sold the world 


BREAK:  A7  Dm  F  Dm


CHORUS 3:
    C          F
Who knows, Not me 
   Bb            F
We never lost control 
       C       F  
You're face to face 
         Bb               A7
With the man who sold the world

Just really learning to play, can someone tell me what key this song is in, 'cause I've looked at my 'cheat sheets', and it doesn't match up with any progression in any key...but like I said, I'm new to this...thanks.

Nirvana forever !!!!

I'm with Mark - Db does sound a lot more accurate.
MARK EGGERTSEN 19/1/2003 - 5:28:43
No, I reiterate. It IS Db. Bbm doesn't fir the scale that is being played simultaneously on lead.
MARDELL 6/8/2002 - 15:56:08
swap the Bb for Bbm.

Hi, WONDERFUL site. However, I think on this song there is a mistake or two.
C           F
"Oh no, not me,"
    Db            F
"We never lost control"
While I've seen variations, and didn't play this right myself until I saw this site, I gathered that Db, rather than B is used in part because Db sounds right, and because on the recording if you listen closely, the lead guitar plays:
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------0---2---3---|------------3-------------------|
|--------0---1---3---------------|3/--4---4-------4-----------0---|
|1---3---------------------------|--------------------1---3-------|
