The lead piece from the hit musical Evita, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and it has been performed on stages around the world as well as in more that one feature film. I first encountered this song in the 1996 film staring Madonna as Evita and is therefore my reference version :)

I had not realised how low this song goes, it's not a problem for piano, but when playing on the flute I had to shift this up quite a bit to make it comfortable to play. Mess around with the key and find a place that's right for you and your instrument - enjoy!

 

G     G      G   G-G
It won't be easy,

G            G     ^C      A
You'll think it strange

A          A  A   A     A - A      A    G  G
When I try to explain how I feel

D      E    F       F         F         F
That I still need your love

F - F    F      E      D     E
After all that I've done...

 

E           E         G-A       E
You won't believe me

E       E     E      E   E  G   G    F#     F#      F#
All you will see is a girl you once knew

E  -  E            D            D         D    D     E      D
Although she's dressed up to the nines

D   D-D    D      A-G       F#     G
At sixes and sevens with you...

 

G   G  F   E    F    G-G     G  G  ^C      A
I had to let it happen, I had to change

A  -  A          A     A    A    A       A      G    G
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel

D - E          F    F     F       F - F         F - F       F    E    D    E
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun...

 

E   E     G         A - E
So I chose freedom

E  -  E           E - E       E - G      G-F#-E      F#
Running around, trying everything new

E         E - D         D  -  D        D   E   D
But nothing impressed me at all

D  D-D   D-A-G   F#  G
I never expected it to...

 

E            E     E     E     F-G-A-G
Don't cry for me Argentina

G          A    A G  ^C-G    F     E
The truth is I never left you!

E           F          G     D        D
All through my wild days

D       E         F-C-C
My mad existence...

C   D     C      E-G
I kept my promise

.G            .G       .G        .A-C
Don't keep your distance...
