...FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE... by Stevie Wonder
-------------------------.................

*from 'For Once in My Life' (1968)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: F)


[Intro]

D


[Verse 1]

    D          Daug         D6          D7
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me;
Em            Eaug      Em7  Em6
 Someone I've needed so long.

    Em        Eaug         Em7           Em6
For once, una-fraid, I can go where life leads me;
    D         A7           D
And somehow I know I'll be strong.


[Chorus 1]

    D           D6            Daug
For once, I can touch what my heart used to dream of,
G              Em   A7
 Long before I knew;
Dmaj7    F#m       Bm         Em7                 A7
 Someone warm like you, would make my dreams come true.


[Verse 2]

    D          Daug          D6         D7
For once in my life, I won't let sorrow hurt me;
Em           Eaug       Em7  Em6
 Not like it hurt me be-fore.

    Em          Eaug         Em7           Em6
For once I have something, I know won't de-sert me;
D          A7       D
 I'm not a-lone any-more.


[Chorus 2]

    D           D6           Daug
For once, I can say; this is mine you can't take it;
   G                     E7
As long as I know I have love; I can make it.
    D          Daug         G        Em7 A7    D
For once in my life, I have some-one who needs me.


[Break]

D          F         A#
 Some-one, who needs me.

D#         G#        A#  A#7
 Some-one, who needs me.


*KEY CHANGE*

[Chorus 3]

    D#          D#6          D#aug
For once, I can say; this is mine you can't take it;
   G#                    F7
As long as I know I have love; I can make it.
    D#         D#aug        G#       Fm7 A#7  (D#)
For once in my life, I have some-one who needs me.

 Some-one, who needs me,
D#         G#        A#  A#7
 Some-one, who needs me.
