The show must go on (Queen, 1991)


[Verse 1]

      Bm
Empty spaces - what are we living for
          G
abandoned places - I guess we know the score
Em              F#                       Em
on and on, does anybody know what we are looking for?
        Bm
Another hero, another mindless crime
           G
behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Em                  F#                      Em
hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore?


[Chorus]

                 Bm                   G
The show must go on, the show must go on, yeah,
   Em
inside my heart is breaking
   F#
my make-up may be flaking
       Em                     G# F#
but my smile still stays on.


[Verse 2]

         C#m
Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance
        A
another heartache, another failed romance
F#m             G#                       F#m
on and on, does anybody know what we are living for?
            C#m
I guess I'm learning, I must be warmer now,
             A
I'll soon be turning, round the corner now
F#m
outside the dawn is breaking
    G#                                  F#m    Em
but inside in the dark I'm aching to be free.  


[Chorus]

                 Bm                   G
The show must go on, the show must go on, yeah,
   Em
inside my heart is breaking
   F#
my make-up may be flaking
       Em                     G# F#
but my smile still stays on.




[Bridge]

   F       G                C               Am
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
F             G              C              Am
fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
F#4             F#
I can fly - my friends.


[Chorus]

                 Bm                   G
The show must go on, the show must go on, yeah,
     Em
I'll face it with a grin
    F#
I'm never giving in
              Em     G# F#
on - with the show.


[Outro]

     Bm                 G
I'll top the bill, I'll overkill,
  Em                             F#
I have to find the will to carry on.
    Em               G# F#
The show must go on.

You've got the basic logistics of the song down, but there are a lot of add-ons (sus2's, 11's, etc.) that you can hear being played that you don't include. Version two has it down pretty well, I believe. It's more difficult, but also more accurate.

Yes man, this is great for piano, the simple route , if you want to write all the arrangements it's very hard to play, in this way it's so helpful for improvising. THANK YOU !
