Artist: The Verve
Album: A Northen Soul
Song: History
Lyrics: Richard Ashcroft
Chorded by: Ross Howard (Rossh@clear.net.nz)
From work by: Michael A. Atienza, Kevin Dutcher

(I have had trouble finding a chording of History to my satisfaction. All
of the versions that I have come across have been flawed in many ways.
But I found a reasonable one on a Verve site and have used this as my
base for this one. I must then thank Atienza and Dutcher for theirs was
the base for this work here. Bear in mind that I have only been able to
complete this after discovering a chord Asus4 used in The Verve's new
album Urban Hymns. I hope this feels better than other chords around. It
certainly does for me. Also their version has a different intro - one
that sounds completely wrong and their Cmaj7 is incorrect - I prefer a a
Cmaj with a G on high E string.)However, the lyrics on the copy were
superb and I have used them and the structure provided.)

[Intro]
G-D6-Asus4-E  - x2

[Verse 1]
G                  D
I wander the lonely streets
Asus4              E             E7
Behind where the old Thames does flow.
G                  D
And in every face I meet
A                      E      E7
Reminds me of what I have run for.

[Bridge]
Am7
In every man, in every hand,
Em
In every kiss you understand,
C1
That living is for other men,
D
I hope you too understand...

[Verse 2]
G                    D
I've got to tell you my tale
Asus4                    E    E7
Of how I loved and how I failed
G                D
I hope you understand?
A                             E       E7
These feelings should not be in the man.

[Bridge]
Am7
In every child, in every eye,
Em
In every sky above my head...
C1
I hope that I know,
D
So come with me in bed.

[Chorus]
            Am
Because its you and me we're history
Em
There ain't nothing left to say
    C1                 D
When I...will get you alone...

[Verse 3]
G                   D
Maybe we could find a room?
      Asus4         E
Where we could see what we should do...
G                  D
Maybe you know its true?
A                            E        E7
Well, living with me is like keeping a fool.

[Bridge]
Am7
In every man, in every hand,
Em
In every kiss you understand,
C1
That living is for other men,
D
I hope you know that I am me...

[Chorus]
Am7                            Em
So come on, I'm thinking about history,
                 C1
And I'm living for history,
                            D
And I think you know I'm bound for you,
Cause I am...

[Bridge]
Am7                                 Em
And one and one is two, but three is company
                                C1
When you're thinking about the things you do,
                                D
And you're thinking about the things you do...

[Verse 4]
G                   D
I wanna tell you my tale...
      Asus4                  E
How I fell in love and jumped out on my bail...
G           D
Do you understand?
        A                    E
There's more in a smile that in a hand.

[Bridge]
Am7
In every sky, in every kiss
        Em
There's one thing that you've might have missed
  C1                        D
Oh, why am I going to a place that now belongs to you?

[Chorus]
Am7
But you and me, and so am I
     Em
Lets make it up
     C1
Lets even try to live today, so why not smile?
      D
Don't dream away your life...

[Middle 8]
      Am7
Cause it is mine...
      Em
It is mine...
          C1
Is that a crime?
          D
Is that a crime?
             Am7                    Em
This life is mine, but the bed ain't made,
                   C1                         D
Its filled full of hope, I've got a skinfull of dope...
Am7             Em
Oh, the bed ain't made,
                         C1                    D
But its filled full of hope, I've got a skinfull of dope...
