Concert Intro :If you use the Cm Gm7/C played more than 2 times (at some concerts it was played 3 or 4 times before Freddie started singing).

Album Intro :There is actually no intro on the Album but if you use the concert intro as a guide you will be able to get the starting note which is a G.

Performance Notes : The Cm Gm7/C and Eb Ab chords are played on the album (occasionally) up 1 octave - i.e. play the chord 1 time on the lower octave and it is then echoed on the higher octave. Have a listen to the album and you will see what I mean.

              Cm      Gm7/C
  I've paid my dues
                Cm      Gm7/C
  And time after time
              Cm           Gm7/C
  I've done my sentence
                 Cm      Gm7/C
  But commited no crime
            Eb      Ab
  And bad mistakes
             Eb      Ab
  I've made a few
              Eb            Bb/D         Cm
  I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
     F7         Bb                       Bb     Gm/Bb   Bb7/Bb      C
  But I've come through (Gonna need to go on and on and   on    and on...)
  F          Am            Dm      Bb      C
  We are the Champions, my friend
      F             Am                Bb    Bb/Bb /A /G    D7/F#
  And we ll keep on fighting till the end
  Gm         C/G        Bb        Edim/G Bb 
  We are the champions, we are the champions
  F           Eb/G             Ab         Bb7         Csus4-7th  
  No time for loosers, 'cause  We are the Champions
         Fm7     Gm7/F     Fm7      Gm7/F      Fm7     Csus4-7th  
  Of the world
                Cm    Gm7/C
  I've taken my bows
                Cm    Gm7/C
  And my curtain calls
                 Cm
  You brought me fame and fortune 
                               Gm7/C
  And everything that goes with it
             Cm    Gm7/C
  I thank you all
                          Eb    Ab
  But it s been no Bed of Roses
              Eb    Ab
  No pleasure cruise
                 Eb
  I consider it a challenge 
                  Bb/D  Cm
  Before the whole human race
      F7            Bb    C
  And I ain t gonna lose 
  F          Am            Dm      Bb      C
  We are the Champions, my friend
      F             Am                Bb    Bb/Bb /A /G    D7/F#
  And we ll keep on fighting till the end
  Gm         C/G        Bb        Edim/G Bb 
  We are the champions, we are the champions
  F           Eb/G             Ab         Bb7         Csus4-7th  
  No time for loosers, 'cause  We are the Champions

         F          Am            Dm       Bb      C
  Of the .....
         We are the Champions, my friend

  And we ll keep on fighting till the end
  Gm         C/G        Bb        Edim/G Bb 
  We are the champions, we are the  cham-pions
  F           Eb/G             Ab         Bb7         Csus4-7th  
  No time for loosers, 'cause  We are the Champions
