ALICIA KEYS - If I Ain't Got You

This song is from the album The Diary of Alicia Keys(2003), released on Nov 01, 2003.
What I loved the most about this song is how smooth this song is. Her silky voice flows through the song and the waltzy rhythm makes it even more perfect. The background music felt really nice and interesting, even though the bass didn't feel very exciting. The way that she sang the song is interesting and makes it worth the listen.

[INTRO] C G/B Am G x2
[VERSE]
G                         Em
Some people live for the fortune
Am                             D
Some people live just for the fame
G                           B
Some people live for the power, yeah
Am                                  D
Some people live just to play the game
G             Am                Bm      Am
Some people think that the physical things
   G     Am    Bm
Define what's within
C         G             Am
And I've been there before
      Bm          Am
But that life's a bore
     G           Am   Bm
So full of the superficial

[CHORUS]
             C
Some people want it all
                  G/B
But I don't want nothing at all
            Am
If it ain't you baby
               G
If I ain't got you baby
                   C
Some people want diamond rings
                    G/B
Some just want everything
                      Am
But everything means nothing
                G
If I ain't got you, Yeah

[VERSE]
G                         Em
Some people search for a fountain
Am                     D
That promises forever young
G                             B
Some people need three dozen roses
Am                                      D
And that's the only way to prove you love them
G           Am           Bm      Am
Hand me the world on a silver platter
      G          Am     Bm Am
And what good would it be
      G         Am
With no one to share 
         Bm       An     G   Am  Bm
With no one who truly cares for me 



[CHORUS]
             C
Some people want it all
                  G/B
But I don't want nothing at all
            Am
If it ain't you baby
               G
If I ain't got you baby
                   C
Some people want diamond rings
                    G/B
Some just want everything
                      Am
But everything means nothing
                G
If I ain't got you, Yeah

[CHORUS]
             C
Some people want it all
                  G/B
But I don't want nothing at all
            Am
If it ain't you baby
               G
If I ain't got you baby
                   C
Some people want diamond rings
                    G/B
Some just want everything
                      Am
But everything means nothing
                G
If I ain't got you, Yeah
