Words and music by Brian May

Dear Friends Piano Chords Transcribed by Shane McDonald

Back to the Main Tab Page

Dear Friends was one of the very first songs I transcribed and it is still one of my favourites, it is also a very memorable song so after a while I found remembering the chords took very little effort.

Note : For the first chord of D, simply change the augmentation of the chord upwards.

So dear friends 
     G    A   D
Your love has gone 
D             A      E7 A
Only tears to dwell   upon
  D   Dmaj7  G/B
I dare not   say
D/A     G    Dmaj7 Em7
As  the wind must  blow
     Dsus4   D 
So a love is lost 
  Asus4   A
A love is won 
D               G     A D
Go to sleep and dream  again 
Soon your hopes 
     A    E7  A
Will rise and then 
     A   Dmaj7 G/B
From all this  gloom 
D/A      G      Dmaj7 E7
Life can start    a - new 
             A7           G G/F# G/E   D
And there'll be no crying soon 


Note :	F#m may be used in place of Dmaj7, but I prefer the Dmaj7.
