Comment for any corrections and please rate

The chords I wrote here are for the live version of Once Upon a Time from the album Live in Dortmund.
I don't have the album version from the special edition of The Road to Freedom,
So I'm not sure if these chords match the original perfectly.


Intro: D

 D                                 G             D
Daddy I can't sleep tonight, it's happening again,
 G                          Gm                              D
Voices in the kitchen are shouting and it's keeping me awake,
                Em
Is it something I've done wrong?
           Bm
Maybe it's all my fault,
      Em                         A
And why is Mummy crying all the time?

 D                           G              D
Lately I've been dreaming, dreaming of the day,
 G                         Gm                    D
We will come together and be a happy family again,
                Em                       Bm
Remember how it used to be, sitting here on my bed,
 Em
Both of you with stories,
          A               D
When you came to say goodnight,

A                               D
Once upon a time you must have loved her,
     Em
And held her in your arms,
     A                  F#                 Bm
And told her she's the best thing in your life,
          G       D
And it's so sad, so bad,
     Em                              A        D  G D A
To think that you don't love her anymore, anymore,

 D                       G                 D
Someday when I'm older, will it be the same?
    G                          Gm                                D
To wake up in the morning and find that everything in life has changed,
                      Em
Well I never want to see that day,
                 Bm
I never want to leave this home,
     Em                          A                D
But most of all I never want to hear you say goodbye,

A                               D
Once upon a time you must have loved her,
     Em
And held her in your arms,
     A                  F#                 Bm
And told her she's the best thing in your world,
          G       D
And it's so sad, so bad,
     Em                              A    Bb  Bm  D
To think that you don't love her anymore, anymore,
     Em                                  A
To think that you don't love her like before,
                D A D G D
Once upon a time.
