With this song, Randy Newman won his first Oscar 2002 for Best Original Song - after being nominated (or, in his own words „humiliated“) 14 times before.
Quite a lot of chords, as always with Randy Newman stuff.
The tricky bits are underlined:
- Verse, Ab7 filler: Fingering is uncommon, but easier like that:
- Ab on g string: index
- open c-string
- Eb on c-string: index
- G on e-string: middle finger
- Bridge, Transition Bb - E7: A really tough move. Try harder.
