Waterloo..knowing my fate is to be with you..
C                       G                           C

    C         D               G    F       G             Am
Oh, yeah, and now it seems my only hope is giving up the fight.
Am                             D7                     G    G7
And how could I ever refuse? I feel like I win when I lose.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Waterloo..finally facing my Waterloo.

Am                             D7                     G    G7
And how could I ever refuse, I feel like I win when I lose.

Basic chords are well enough here but the subtlety of the progression is lost completely because the roots are missing. If you want the real thing check out ver2 (English lyrics) and ver1 (Swedish), which are perfect. They are without capo. If you want to use a capo second fret, transpose them (down two half steps)

I like to use the Capo sometimes because it gives
some songs a different flavour. And I'm not a real big
fan of 'slash' chords either.
Check out Pencom's version (#5) IT'S the best on the list.
I find people who read music and have had Conservatory
training tend to look down on those of us who don't have that
training. They tend also to be a bit 'know-it-all.'
Some of the best guitar guitar players can't read a note.
Les Paul comes to mind. KK.
