I Want You Back Chords (ver 6) - Jackson 5


 
I Want You Back Chords
It's not the original version. It's just how I like to play it.
In the original version there are some more chords in the Chorus 
and some chords are just played in another way. 
If you want to play it this way but in the 
original key, use Capo on 4th fret. ;)
(KT Tunstall plays it in this key)

E   022100    A** 577650
E*  076450    B   x24400
F#m 244200    C#m x46650  
G#m 466400
A   x02220
A*  x02200

INTRO:
  E  - F#m-G#m -  A  - A-A* - C#m - G#m - A - E - F#m - B - E

(the spaces between the chords indicate how long you play it. 
So the first E is played long and the F#m-G#m (the 2 chords) 
are played short. Listen to the song to understand it ;))
(if you want to play it the orignal way, play this intro twice, 
and play the chorus chords after that)

VERSE 1:
E                   F#m G#m
When I had you to myself
  A                      A* A
I didn't want you around
      C#m    G#m    A     E        F#m       B    E
Those pretty faces always made you stand out in a crowd
    E                            F#m G#m 
But someone picked you from the bunch
    A                      A* A
one glance was all it took
C#m      G#m       A       E     F#m    B      E
Now it's much too late for me to take a second look

CHORUS:
E*      C#m      B       A
Oh baby give me one more chance
A**
(show you that I love you)
C#m  F#m  A      E   F#m  B
Won't you please let me
E
(back in your heart)
E*         C#m   B        A
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
 A**
(let you go baby)
    C#m F#m   A  E  F#m  B     E
But now since I see you in his arms
 E
(I want you back)
Yes I do now
(I want you back)
Ooh ooh baby
(I want you back)
Ya ya ya ya
(I want you back)
Na na na na

VERSE 2:
E                              F#m G#m
Tryin' to live without your love
    A                  A* A 
Is one long sleepless night
C#m   G#m       A    E
Let me show you girl
    F#m      B          E
That I know wrong from right
E                       
Every street you walk on
F#m G#m  A                        A* A
 I leave tearstains on the ground
C#m   G#m  A   E
Following the girl
        F#m    B      E
I didn't even want around
Let me tell you now

CHORUS:
E*      C#m    B       A
Oh baby all I need is one more chance
A**
(show you that I love you)

C#m  F#m  A      E   F#m  B
Won't you please let me
E
(back in your heart)
E*         C#m   B        A
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
 A**
(let you go baby)
    C#m F#m   A  E  F#m  B     E
But now since I see you in his arms

   This part you just play E - A - E
Uh-huh
A buh buh buh buh (2 times)
All I want
A buh buh buh buh
All I need
A buh buh buh buh
All I want
A buh buh buh buh
All I need

   Play the chorus here 2 times
Oh just one more chance
to show you that I love you
baby! (6 times)

I want you back
Forget what happened then
I want you back
Let me live again

Oh baby I was blind to let you go
But now since I see you in his arms
Spare me of this cause
Gimme back what I lost

Oh baby I need one more chance ha
I tell ya that I love you

About the artist behind I Want You Back Chords:

The Jackson 5 (also spelled The Jackson Five or The Jackson 5ive, and later known as The Jacksons) was an American popular music quintet (and briefly a sextet and quartet) from Gary, Indiana. The group, fully active from 1966 to 1990, consisted of brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, who played from a repertoire of R&B, soul, funk, and later disco. Considered "one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music"[1] during the early 1970s, the Jackson 5 are also notable for launching the careers of their lead singers Jermaine and Michael.

Signed to the Motown label from 1968 to 1975, and to Epic/CBS Records (as "The Jacksons") from 1975 until their disbanding in 1990, the Jackson 5 were one of the most popular groups of the era and became the first recording act to have their first four major label singles ("I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save", and "I'll Be There") reach the top of the American charts. Several future singles, among them "Mama's Pearl", "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "Dancing Machine", were Top 5 pop hits and number-one hits on the R&B singles chart. Most of the early hits were written and produced by a specialized songwriting team known as "The Corporation"; later Jackson 5 hits were crafted chiefly by Hal Davis.

Significantly, they were the first black teen idols to appeal equally to white audiences. Upon their departure from Motown for CBS in 1975, the Jacksons were forced to change their name and replace Jermaine (who remained at Motown) with younger brother Randy. The group took control of their songwriting, production, and image, and their success continued into the 1980s with hits such as "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)" and "State of Shock", and the highly successful Victory Tour. The Jacksons officially disbanded in 1990, after the commercial underperformance of their 1989 album 2300 Jackson Street, recorded mostly without Michael and Marlon.
