B-side of 'New York Mining Disaster 1941', and one of my all-time favorite
Bee Gees songs.  Amazingly soulful (it got significant airplay on R&B
stations), especially considering that they were only 17-19 years old at
the time. -- AWR


                          "I Can't See Nobody"
                       (Barry Gibb / Robin Gibb)

Intro:

	(acoustic guitar w/strings):

	Em      /D       /C#      /B
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

	Em          D
	I walk the lonely streets
	    A               E
	I watch the people passing by
	Em                   D
	I used to smile and say hello
	     A             E
	Yes, I was just a happy guy

	(drums enter midway through each verse)

	Then you happened, girl
	This feeling that possesses me
	I just can't move myself
	I guess it all just had to be

Chorus:

	A        D     E
	I can't see nobody
	A            D     E
	No, I can't see nobody
	    A        D    E       A  [1-3: N.C.; 5: end cold]
	My eyes can only look at you
	 E  [1-3: N.C.]
	You

Verse 2:

	I used to have a brain
	I used to think of many things
	I watched the falling rain
	And listened to the sweet bird sing

	Don't ask me why, little girl
	I love you and that's all I can say
	You're every, every breath that I take
	You are my nights, my night and day

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3 (note extra lines):

	Every single word you hear, girl
	Is coming from this heart of mine
	I've never felt like this before
	A love like yours, so young and fine

	And now as I try to forget you
	It doesn't work out anyway
	I loved you such a long time ago
	Though in my eyes you'll always stay

	Every single word you hear
	Is coming from this heart of mine
	I loved you such a long time ago
	 A                      E 
	Don't know why, girl I don't know why
	(Baby, such a long time
	 Baby, such a long time
	 Baby, such a long time)

[repeat chorus]

[repeat chorus; end cold as indicated]

About the artist behind I Cant See Nobody Chords:

The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb — that became one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England and moved to Brisbane, Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to England and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers' did. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony"[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees' record sales total more than 220 million, easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".[2]
