Sure thing.. I think that chord changes in this song are gorgeous. Not sure how to post it, though, to get the chords to line up with the lyrics.. any suggestion? Otherwise, I could just post the chords in sequence without the lyrics and maybe you could figure out where the changes are.. How about if I try that first, and if you need more help after that, let me know. Hopefully I'll get this done this weekend.
Best,
Karen

Ok, let me know if you need anything clarified.

Where the asterisks are, see below.
I didn't know how much theory you know - 2nd inversion of Ab chord means notes Eb, Ab, C in that order. 1st inversion is C, Eb, Ab.

MAN LIKE ME

INTRO:

F C* F C
F Am G* Bb   F F Ab (2nd inversion)

VERSE:

F C* F C
F Am G* Bb F Ab (2nd inv)

F C* F C
F Am G* Bb F Ab (2nd inv) D C# Ab (1st inv) Bb
[in other words, starting from the F chord on the word "nuts", the bass line goes down stepwise from F, Eb, D, C#, C, Bb

CHORUS (starts with: she says you're throwing life away)

F# C#m Bm F#
C# Bmajor   F#
Ebm C# Ab   Bb

Then everything just repeats, except the end of the next verse when you get to the last Bb, after that for a second there's a bit of a C chord before going back to the F# of the chorus. (Great, huh? C going to F#!) Same thing with the last Bb of the chorus, a bit of a C chord before going back to the F of the verse (or going into the instrumental break which uses all the same chords of the verse).

The last chorus is just the first 2 lines of the chorus and the 2nd line repeated, ending on F# !

* Wherever these C chords are, they have an extra F note in them - L hand plays C and G, R hand plays F and C
* Wherever these G chords are, they have an extra C note in them - L hand plays C and D, R hand plays G and C.

Please send me the piano music for Man Like Me. I have a student who wants to sing it and can't find sheet music.
Thanks, Nina
