              Person I Should Have Been - James Morrison

Tuning:Standard Capo 2nd fret (Chord Diagram at the bottom)

*Sorry for not having lyrics in the intro, it would have been tedious and you can play
at your own speed*

This is 100% but I have simplified it because James and I play it with slaps on the
strings and in the chorus there are some picked notes but mostly strummed are the intro 
so I
didn't bother and I hate it when people do this when I'm learning but once your in their 
shoes it takes very long and hey I learnt this by watching him a RTL2 Radio station

Chorus:

           Am                Em
I'll make the best of this life I've got left
B7              Em
Got no time for no regrets
      Am                G
Gonna show you just what I can be
    B7                   Em
The person I should have been

And it might take time, take time
         Am7            B7              Em
Coz this life has taken it right out of me
Am7               B7             G
I wanna change my perspective of reality
Dm         G*     C
Be a much better version of me
    B7                   Em   E--2---3
The person I should have been
           Am                Em
I make the best of this life I've got left
B7               Em
Put my sincerity to the test
     Am           G
Wake up my senses finally
    B7              Em
The water washes me clean

    Am                       Em
What shouldn't have been has all been done
  B7
If I don't get a grip
         Em
Then the world has won
Am                       G
Making me think that I'll never be
   B7                    Em
The person I should have been
           Am7
Who am I now?
  B7                Em
A lonely man that's fallen down
           Am7
No I can't change
    B7                 Em
The past that time has all burned out
      C*      C#dim            A7
But I know somewhere inside of me
       Am7     B7            Em  E--2--3
Is the person I could have been
         Am                Em
Make the best of this life I've got left
B7              Em
Got no time for no regrets
      Am                 G
Gonna show you just what I can be
    B7                   Em
The person I should have been

    Am                       Em
What shouldn't have been has all been done
  B7
If I don't get a grip
         Em
Then the world has won
Am                       G
Making me think that I'll never be
   B7                    Em
The person I should have been

Outro:
         Am     G     B7                  Em
I said the person,   person I should have been
    Am     G     B7                  Em
The person,      person I should have been
    Am     G     B7              Em
The person         I should have been
          Am     G     B7                  Em
I said the person,     person I should have been
