Wish You Were Here
  G  Bm7  C  D7 
  G  Bm7  C  D7
 (Oooooooooooh)

G
      You're living your life 
         Em7                    Bm7
      In somebody else’s heart
   Am7        G  
      My love is as strong 
         Em7                  Bm7
      as oceans are far apart.

E         Am7
      A summer song 
                        D
      keeps playing in my brain, 
                G
      and I feel you 
                     Em7
      and I see your face again. 
       C
      There's no escape, 
               D
      I lost everything 
                    E
      in losing you.

Em7    D
      Ah I wish you were here, 
      Em                       Bm   D
      drying these tears I cry. 
                G
      They were good times 
            Bm7
      and I wish you were here 
          Am7
      and calling my name, 
                 Am7             D        Am7        E
      but you're dealing with a man insane, the cost, 
          Am7              E
      how hopelessly I'm lost, 
        Am7                     G
      I tried to throw our love away 
             C     G   D
      and I can't let go.

D       G
      And so I awake 
         Em7                   Bm7
      in somebody else's dream.

(It's not what it seems) 
   Am7      G
      It's only a lie, 
            Em7                      Bm7
      I've yet to decide who's real.

E                   Am7                D
      The blood red rose  will never never die, 
                       G
      it'll burn like a flame 
              Em7
      in the dark of the night. 
      C
      I'm not afraid, 
                 D
      I'd give everything 
                         E
      if you hear me there.

Em7     D
      Ahh I wish you were here, 
      Em                       Bm    D
      drying these tears I cry. 
                G
      They were good times, 
                Bm7
      it's that time of year 
          Am7
      for being alone 
                 Am7             D            Am
      but you're dealing with a heart of stone, 
              Am               E
      try to kiss and say goodbye, 
      Am                   G
      try to throw our love away 
                 C    G     D
      and that storm will blow.

Bm7       Am7                D    G
      Ooooooh Wish you were here. 
    Bm7       Am7
      Ooooooh Wish you were here.

Am7             D             Am7
      'Cause you're dealing with a heart of stone, 
              Am7               E7
      try to kiss and say goodbye, 
      Am7                  G
      try to throw our love away 
             C     G   D
      and I can't let go.

D7               G
      They were good times

About the artist behind Wish You Were Here:

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]
