One of Michael Jackson's classics, "Man in the Mirror" is relatively slow and simple so it's great for beginners on most instruments. It's topped the charts around the world in the late 80's and was remixed for Jackson's tribute tour so has remained popular.  I hope you enjoy the letter notes below :)

A broken bottle top

And a one man soul

They follow each other

^C     B   ^C    B    ^D
On the wind ya' know

I've been a victim

B-A  D  B-G   A   G   B-A
Of a selfish kind of love

D        B     G   A   G-A-E
It's time that I realize

G           G         A       B        A     B    A-G
That there are some with no home,

G     G    B-B  ^D  ^E-^D
Not a nickel to loan

B     ^C  ^D   B-^C  ^D
Could it be really me,

^D-^D-^C    ^C      B        A     B-A-G
Pretending that they're not alone?

 

B     ^C-B    ^C-B     ^D
A willow deeply scarred,

Somebody's broken heart

And a washed-out dream

They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see

The    man    in    the    mirror
