About this tab version
This was charted on piano, as per the original recording, so it may not be easily conducive to guitar. Nonetheless, even on piano it was quite a difficult song - there's a lot of unusual chords. The chord marked Am/Bb is played on piano with Bb on the bass root while the right hand plays Bb, C, E. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
Am/F  G/F  G/E     
Am  Em/G  F6  Fm/Ab  C/G  Cm/Eb  G/D  Gm  D/A  F/G  G      
F  G/F   G/E   Am   Em/G  Cm/Ab  Ab/F   Cmaj7  

[Verse 1]
Cmaj7   Am6/C   (x4) 

Cmaj7     Am6/C    
Look at me now   
   Cmaj7       Am6/C          Cmaj7  Am6/C  Cmaj7  Am6/C
A shadow of the man I used to be
Cmaj7          Am6/C    
Look through my eyes
     Cmaj7                Am6/C           Cmaj7  Am6/C  
And through the years of loneliness you'll see

Cmaj7  Am6/C

[Bridge 1]
        Dm/C            
To the times in my life
Dm/A    Gm7      C7/Bb   C/A            Dm  
When I could not bear to lose a simple game
          Bm-5                     
And the least of it all 
          G7   G7/B      C   Bm7  E7
Was the fortune and the fame  
         Am             G/C        D7/Gb   D7/A     G
But the dream seemed to end just as soon as it had begun
G/F       E7   
Was I to know?
         Am           G/C        D7/Gb   D7/A     
For the last thing of all that was on my mind
          G          G/F         E7
Was the close at the end of the show

[Chorus 1]
                 Em/C   Cm6/Eb           G  Bm7           
The shadow of a lonely man feels nobody else
         E7         Em/C             Cm6/Eb        
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
            G    Bm7  E7  Cm6/Eb  G  Cm6/Eb  G
I can see myself

[Verse 2] 
Cmaj7 Am6/C   (x2)

Cmaj7           Am6/C    Cmaj7   Am6/C  
(Looking out of nowhere)

Cmaj7   Am6/C   (x2)   

Cmaj7           Am6/C   Cmaj7  Am6/C  
(Looking out of nowhere)

[Bridge 2]
        Dm/C          Dm/A            Gm7    Am/Bb   C/A                
But the sound of the crowds when they come to see me now
            Dm
Is not the same
        Bm-5                 G7   G7/B       C  Bm7 E7
And the jest of it all is I can't recall my name
       Am         G/C        D7/Bb     D7/A    G   G/F
But I cling to a hope till I can't hold on anymore,
    E7            Am         G/C       D7/Gb D7/A    
Anymore.  And for all the acclaim, I am all alone
       G       G/F               E7
And I see as I look through the door

[Chorus 2]
                 Em/C   Cm6/Eb             G   Bm7           
The shadow of a lonely man there’s nobody else
         E7         Em/C            Cm6/Eb        
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
            G    Bm7  Cm6/Eb  G  
I can see myself

Cmaj7     Am6/C    
Look at me now 
   Cmaj7       Am6/C          E
A shadow of the man I used to be
