#1.
  C                     F               C    F
I never had any reason, for ambition or drive.
           C                 F
In fact, I never had anybody that cared if I'm 
C    F
alive.
    C                                  E
But then one day she came my way and I heard a 
                          F
voice within me say don't let her get away..
             Fm
whatever you do.
      C                             F        C
But I never thought that this could be..that she 
                   F          Dm
would ever look at me, seriously.

CHORUS:
    G                         C                    Am                     
And that's why (oh, Lord, oh, Lord) I gotta be somebody.
               F
I'm down on my knees..begging please, please, please, 
G
please.
                             Am
I've got to win her love for me.


INTERLUDE: F Dm C F

#2.
  C                         F                    C    F
I grew up on the sidewalks, got along the best I could.
C                             F           C    F
Mama worked all day long, and Papa was no good.
     C                               E
I've never asked for much before but here I am at Heaven's 
          F                                      Fm
door..so, help me, please, don't let her pass me by.
        C                      F        Cm          C
Cause I would rather die, than see, her love turn into 
      F      Dm  G
sympathy for me.

CHORUS:
    G                         C                    Am                     
And that's why (oh, Lord, oh, Lord) I gotta be somebody.
               F
I'm down on my knees..begging please, please, please, 
G
please.
                             Am  E Dm C
I've got to win her love for me.

BRIDGE:
F                            C    F
Mmmmm-mmmm-mmm..gotta be somebody.
C             F
Got to be somebody.
C                     F
So tired of being a nobody.

OUTRO:
    C                                Am                     
Oh, Lord, Lord, Lord, I gotta be somebody.
               F
I'm down on my knees..begging please, please, please, 
G
please..(Fade.)
