About this tab version
I just inserted some missing words. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
From the album 'Made In Heaven', this is a tab for the Queen version of the song.  If
you wanted to play the solo, there's an excellent tab for that by Kanfano on this site.

If anybody could give me a hint on the very final chord of this, that would be great; 
the Em is the closest I've got but I fear it's some strange flattened diminished thing.

I use the notation of G - - D/F# | to indicate that a G chord is played for the first
three beats of the bar, and the D/F# is played on the fourth beat.  The | separates bars.

Standard tuning, no capo.


G      -  320033
D/F#   -  2x0232
C      -  x32010
Em     -  022000
D      -  x00232
C/B    -  x32000
Am     -  x02210
Dsus4  -  x00233
A7     -  x02020
Cadd9  -  x32033

G - - D/F# | C - - - | G - - D/F# | C - - - |

             G             C             G
I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be;
    D/F# Em               D               C - - C/B |
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me.
     Am            Em
I am far away from home,
              Am          Em
And I've been facing this alone
             Dsus4 - D - | C - D - |
For much too long .        Oh

            G           C                 G
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
         D/F# Em            D                 C - - C/B |
About growing up and what a struggle it would be.
      Am                Em
In my tangled state of mind,
          Am              Em
I've been looking back to find
             Dsus4 - D - | C - D - |
Where I went wrong.

G                  C
Too much love will kill you
       Em                 D
If you can't make up your mind;
G              C
Torn between the lover
        Em               D
And the love you leave behind.
       G             C
You're headed for disaster
         G              A7
'Cos you never read the signs:
G                  Cadd9
Too much love will kill you
      G - - D/F# | C - - - | G - - D/F# | C - - - |
Every time.

          G                C             G
I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be,
   D/F# Em              D                   C
And it seems there's no way out of this for me.
  Am                Em
I used to bring you sunshine;
    Am         Em
Now all I ever do
             Dsus4 - D - |C - D - |
Is bring you down.        Ooh-ooh

             G              C              G
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes?
      D/F# Em             D           C - - C/B |
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose?
    Am             Em
Oh, there's making sense of it:
Am          Em
Every way I go
             Dsus4 - D - | C - D - |
I'm bound to lose.         Oh-ooh

G                  C
Too much love will kill you;
        Em              D
Just as sure as none at all.
      G                      C
It'll drain the power that's in you,
         Em                   D
Make you bleed and scream and crawl.
        G                  C
And the pain will make you crazy;
           G              A7
You're the victim of your crime.
G                  Cadd9
Too much love will kill you
      G - - D/F# | C - - - |
Every time.

[Solo chords]

G - - D/F# | G - - D/F# | Em - D - | C - - - |
Am - Em - | Am - Em - | Dsus4 - D - | C - D - |

      G                  C
Yeah, too much love will kill you;
      Em               D
It'll make your life a lie.
     G                 C
Yes, too much lo-ooove will kill you
        Em               D
And you won't understand why.
(You'd) give your life,
You'd sell your soul,
    G             A7 (pause)
But here it comes again:
G                              Cadd9
Too much love will kill you,
       G - - D/F# | C - D - |
In the end.
        G - - D/F# | C - Em - | - - - - | - - - - |
I-i-i-i-in the end.

I think the G-chord before the A7 should be an Em..
Other than that, great job! :D
