SIMPLE MAN - ANDREAS KÜMMERT

A great song by Andreas Kümmert, the winner of "The Voice of Germany 2013".

Standard Tuning (EADGBE), Capo 1

This is the original full length studio version the way I play on my acoustic guitar, I 
hope you like it.
This version is longer than the one he sung in the finals of "the voice of germany", but 
the chords are basically the same.
In the show he left out a few verses and the transposed part at the end.

Chords used:
A    = 002220
D    = x00232 (D/A actually)
Bm   = x24432
C#m  = x46654
E    = 022100
F#m  = 244222

and for the transposed part at the end
(just if you want to play along to the whole single):

Bb   = 688766
F    = 133211
Gm   = 355333
Dm   = x57765
Eb   = x68886
F#   = 244322

Intro:

A E F#m C#m
D F A

Verse:

A
If I was a man
E
just a simple man
F#m
I didn't know what I wanted from life
D
and I didn't have no plan

A
Would it be enough
E
if all I have was all my love
          F#m
would you be OK, would you know how
   D
to love me if I wasn't the man I am now oh

Chorus:

A                   E
I need a miracle to ever make you love me
F#m                      C#m                   D
So that you never choose another man above me
   F              A
If I was a simple man
                        E
Take a look on you just want that by me
F#m                          C#m                     D
I think that you could never see the man inside me
           F             A
 Could you love a simple man?


Verse:

A
If you were a girl
E
just a normal girl
F#m
if you weren't so damn beautiful
D
would this still work

A
Well I know it would, cause what we
E
have is too good to end and though I
            F#m
know you pretend that you feel the
                            D
same and you claim that you never find love again

Chorus:

A                   E
I need a miracle to ever make you love me
F#m                      C#m                   D
So that you never choose another man above me
   F              A
If I was a simple man
                        E
Take a look on you just want that by me
F#m                          C#m                     D
I think that you could never see the man inside me
           F             A
 Could you love a simple man?

Bridge:

D                   C#m
If I couldn't put a ring on your finger
Bm
I put a roof over your head
D                        C#
If I could only give you love and devotion
E
Would you still something else instead


Chorus:

A                   E
I need a miracle to ever make you love me
F#m                      C#m                   D
So that you never choose another man above me
   F              A
If I was a simple man

Thanks very much! I'm definitely not good enough to play these chords, but at least I have the lyrics now. :) Very good, anyway. So: 5 Stars; the chords sound great to it but as I said: Not when I play them ;)
