NOTHING COMPARES 2 U

This song was originally composed by Prince. This (by Chris Cornell) is one of the best cover versions I’ve
ever heard. If you want to look for this version online, here's a link to the video:
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuUDRU9-HRk)
Apparently Chris Cornell also recorded a version of this song without these solos.

If you don’t want to bother with strange chords, you can play a G instead of G/B, Am instead of Am7.
Sounds good anyway!

I've corrected the solo (now should be right) and added a rough pattern for the intro.

ENJOY!

[Verse]

C                               G/B
   It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Am7                              C  C/F - C  G
   Since you took your love away
C                           G/B
   I go out all night and sleep all day
Am7                                 C  C/F - C  G
   Since you took your love away
C                                    G/B
   Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
Am7                             C  C/F - C  G
   I can see whoever I choose
C                                 G/B
   I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
    Am7                           E
But nothing, nothing can take away these blues


[Chorus]

       Bb                 F
`Cause nothing compares
Bb            F    G
   Nothing compares to you


[Verse]

C                          G/B
   It's been so lonely without you here
Am7                              C  C/F - C  G
   Like a bird without a song
C                                G/B
   Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
        Am7                    F
Tell me,    where did I go wrong
C                                 G/B
   I could put my arms around any girl I choose
Am7                                C  C/F - C  G
   But it just reminds me of you
C                                         G/B
   I went to the doctor and guess what he told me
          Am7                                            E
He said: “Boy, you better try to have fun no matter what you do”, but he's a fool


[Chorus]

       Bb                 F
`Cause nothing compares
Am             G
   Nothing compares to you

[Verse]

C                                           G/B
All the flowers that you planted, mama,         in the backyard
Am7                            C  C/F - C  G
   All died when you went away
C                                          G/B
   And I know that living with you baby is sometimes hard
Am7                                   E
   But I'm willing to give it another try

       Bb                 F
`Cause nothing compares
Am             G
   Nothing compares to you
Bb             F
Nothing compares
Am             G            Em         G
   Nothing compares to you.....to you...

G/B and Am7 are "strange chords"?!?!? If u listen closely, that whirring sound u hear is Chris rolling over in his all to premature grave! Do this incredible, tragic genius the honor and respect he so richly deserves and take the time to learn a couple simple, yet expressive and distinctive, chords! You'll find that they will give certain songs that small, almost imperceptible nuance that can turn an average cover into a standout in your set list. Especially Am7...Chris uses that chord frequently in his acoustic covers...also (and I'm not shouting, just trying to catch your attention) IF YOU ARE A CHRIS CORNELL FAN OR NOT, CHECK OUT HIS AMAZING COVER/COMBINATION OF "ONE". HE USES THE CHORDS AND VOCAL MELODY OF U2's "ONE", BUT WITH METALLICA's LYRICS! IT IS ASTOUNDING!! (and I don't really care for U2 at all, but it's incredible!). There are at least 2 YouTube videos of it, but try to find the one where he's wearing a white T-shirt. They're both great, but that one begins with a brief story about his daughter getting posses at him for practicing to much! It's heartwarming. RIP brother...you left us far too soon!
