We Are The Champions

Performed by Queen
Written by Freddie Mercury 1975.

Tablature by Graham Lamb  at lamgooi@eon.net.au

This is a version that is adapted for a guitar without a piano. There is a bit of chord picking
to try and reproduce the piano melody and a couple of lead licks but it's mainly just strumming.
Some of the chords used are very different to the piano chords shown in other transcriptions.
This is because many chord voicings played on a piano are impossible to reproduce accurately on
a guitar but if you play along with the song using these chords you should find that they sound
pretty close. One or two of them could probably be altered slightly and if anyone knows a better
way to play any of them please let me know. If anyone has any suggestions or would like the lead
guitar transcription email me at - lamgooi@eon.net.au

Lyrics

1ST VERSE

I've paid my dues time after time
I've done my sentence but committed no crime
And bad mistakes I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
but I've come through (And I need to go on and on and on and on)

CHORUS

We are the champions my friends
And we'll keep on fighting 'till the end
We are the champions we are the champions
No time for losers 'cause we are the champions
Of the world.

2ND VERSE

I've taken my bows and my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune and ev-rything that goes with it: I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race 
and I ain't gonna loose (And I need to go on and on and on and on)

CHORUS X 2
