It Could Have Been Me:Sami Jo.
#31 Easy Listening and #46 on
BB Hot 100 on MGM SOUTH Records
in 1974.

INTRO: E Ebm D Dbm C

#1.
E                  Eb                 Abm7
Organ music softly playing, sounds of people's 
                 D
whispers saying, she's a pretty bride, you're 
       Dbm   A
such a lucky man.
            Cm                        B
I smile and blink the tears away, and find the 
                           Bbm
proper words to say, while aching with a pain
Gb                   B
they just can't understand.

CHORUS:
                   E                Gb       Gbm
It could have been me, wearing that dress of white.
Gbm                                E
It could have been me, holding you close tonight.
E                                  Gb       Gbm
It could have been me, giving your children life.
Gbm                                E
Why can't it be me, who'll be your wife?

#2.
E                                      Ebm
Now, we're gathered, all together, you vow your love,
             B
for worse or better.
E                                  Dbm
Lift her veil and kiss her, with a tender love.
     Am                                E
Then leading her, back up the aisle, I try meet your 
                    Bbm           B  Gb
eyes and smile, but all the time, my heart is breaking, 
B
so.

CHORUS:
                   E                Gb       Gbm
It could have been me, wearing that dress of white.
Gbm                                E
It could have been me, holding you close tonight.
E                                  Gb       Gbm
It could have been me, giving your children life.
Gbm                                E
Why can't it be me, who'll be your wife?

#3.
F                            E          Am
I toast the lovely bride and groom, and as you leave 
          F
the noisy room, they say it's my turn to catch the 
Gm7
bride's bouquet.
    Db                                   C
And as the crowd goes streaming past and someone says,
     F               G
he's hers at last, I hold my pretty flowers and slowly 
C
walk away.

CHORUS:
                F                             Gm7
Could this be a dream, will I be wearin' that dress 

of white?
                   C                        F
Could it really be me, who'd be holdin' you close tonight?
                                              G        Gm7
Please say that it's me, who'd be giving your children life.
                  C                       F
Wake me from this dream, take me for your wife.

CHORUS:
F                                       Gm7
It's only a dream, I'll be wearing that dress of white.
                  C                          F
It was just a bad dream, I'll be holding you close tonight.
                                                G        Gm7
I'm proud that it's me, who will be giving your children life.
                     C   G      Gm7     F
Thank God, that it's me, who'll be your wife.

OUTRO:
F                                       Gm7
It's only a dream, I'll be wearing that dress of white.
                  C                           F
It was just a bad dream, I'll be holding you close tonight.
                                                G        Gm7
I'm proud that it's me, who will be giving your children life.

Thank God, that it's me, who'll be your wife..(Fade.)
