INTRO
| G D   | Em D | C(add9) | C(add9) [ C/D ] |


VERSE
G          D  
 I'm gonna make a change
Em    D           C(add9)   [ C/D ]
  For once in my life
           G         D  
It's gonna feel real good
             Em                D       C(add9)
Gonna make a difference, gonna make it right


VERSE
    G            D  
As I turn up the collar on
Em           D           
 My favorite winter coat
C(add9)                          [ C/D ]
 This wind is blowing my mind
          G           D  
I see the kids in the street
         Em
With not enough to eat
D         C(add9)
 Who am I to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs


BRIDGE
Am7                   G  
 A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
C(add9)
 And one man's soul (and a one man's soul)
     Am7                      G  
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
            C(add9)        C/D                             [ G ]
'Cause they got nowhere to go, that's why I want you to know


CHORUS
G    G                 C          D7sus4
 I'm starting with the man in the mirror
G    G             C          D7sus4
 I'm asking him to change his ways
G       G7                 C        C#dim
 And no message could have been any clearer
       Csus4/D
If you want to make the world a better place
       Csus4/D                              [ G ]
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change


INTERLUDE
| G D   | Em D | C(add9) | C(add9) [ C/D ] |
           (Na, na, na, ...)


VERSE
G            D       Em         D
 I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
C(add9)         
 It's time that I realize
               G            D          Em             [ D ]
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
D            C(add9)               
 Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?


BRIDGE
Am7                      G  
 A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
C(add9)           G  
 And a washed-out dream
     Am7                       G  
They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see
            C(add9)         C/D                               [ G ]
'Cause they got no place to be, that's why I'm starting with me


CHORUS
G    G                 C          D7sus4
 I'm starting with the man in the mirror
G    G             C          D7sus4
 I'm asking him to change his ways
G       G                  C        C#dim
 And no message could have been any clearer
       Csus4/D
If you want to make the world a better place
       Csus4/D                              [ G ]
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change


CHORUS
G    G                 C          D7sus4
 I'm starting with the man in the mirror

 I'm asking him to change his ways
G       G                  C        C#dim
 And no message could have been any clearer
       Csus4/D
If you want to make the world a better place
       Csus4/D                    Csus4/D Csus4/D [ break ]
Take a look at yourself, and then make    that

Ab   Ab            Db         Db/Eb

 No message could have been any clearer

Take a look at yourself and then make the change
          Dbsus4/Eb
You gotta get it right, while you got the time
          Dbsus4/Eb            Dbsus4/Eb Dbsus4/Eb   [ Ab ]
You can't close your, then you close     your,       mind!
