That’s Not How the Story Goes
from "A Series of Unfortunate Events"

190-200bpm
Played in 3
Standard Tuning, No Capo


These chords are correct to the original recording of this song, which can be found in Episode 8
("The Miserable Mill, Part Two") of the "A Series of Unfortunate Events" series on Netflix.

Notes on playing: I have chosen to make the transition chord a B7 rather than a regular B to completely 
eliminate the need for barre chords, although the song can be played with a B instead. The entire song can
be played with barre chords, however I have also listed the exact chords I play below.

The following is a link to my cover of the song I posted on YouTube using these chords. I hope you enjoy!

[Intro]
G B Em B7 (whistling)
 

[Verse 1]
        G                           Em
You may think that the Baudelaire’s ought to prevail
       G                              Em        
And be tucked someplace all safe and sound
      Cm                G
Count Olaf captured and rotting in jail
    B7
His Hench-people nowhere around


[Chorus]
            C                    D
But there’s no happy endings not here and not now
     G                       Em
This tale is all sorrows and woes
    C                      D
You dream that justice and peace win the day
           Em           D
But that’s not how the story goes


[Verse 2]
          G                           Em 
You might think that two parents both brave and both true
      G                         Em
Would live ‘til a nice ripe old age
    Cm                    G
But I’m sad to say I have bad news for you
    B7
The curtain rains down on the stage


[Chorus]
             C                    D
Yes, there’s no happy endings not here and not now
     G                       Em
This tale is all sorrows and woes
          C                      D
You might dream that justice and peace win the day
           Em                D
But that’s not how the story goes


[Bridge]
  D                         F#m
I once loved a girl and she thought well of me
   D                       F#m
We thought we’d be happy together
    C                G
But now I’m alone as you can well see
          B7
And she’s cold in her grave forever


[Chorus]
        C                    D
There’s no happy endings not here and not now
     G                       Em
This tale is all sorrows and woes
          C                      D
You might dream that justice and peace win the day
           Em                 D
But that’s not how this story goes


[Verse 3]
    G                  Em
The world is a pair of ill-fitting pants
    G                  Em
And other dire hideous clothes
        Cm                              G
You may think that three children would lead pleasant lives
           B7
But that’s not how the story goes


[Verse 4]
     C                   D
Some people smile at the end of the day
     G                 Em
Some people laugh I suppose
       C                      D
But to me there’s nothing but gloom and despair
       Em                 D
That’s just how the story goes

That’s just how the story goes


[Outro] (whistling)
G Em G Em
Cm G B7 B7
Em (let ring)
