not complete, so comments/additions/help are or

 G D C D x2

Verse 1:
G           D                     C       D
She's never pulled anybody from a burning building
G           D                        C      D       C
She's never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans, 

screaming out her name
She's never hit a shot to win the game
G           D                   C      D
She's never left her footprints on the moon
G           D           C   D           C
She's never made a solo hot air balloon ride, around the world, 
No, she's just your everyday average girl (but)

G     D          C
She's somebody's hero
  D           G           D
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
C                D
A little kiss is all she needs
    G  D          C 
The keeper of the cheerios
    D                      G
The voice that brings Snow White to life
D               C
Bedtime stories every night
         D              G D C
And that smile lets her know
                 D  G
She's somebody's hero

Verse 2:
G                D                       C       D
She didn't get a check every week like a nine-to fiver
G                D                        C    D
But she's been a waiter, and a cook and a taxi driver
           C                                       D
For twenty years, there at home, until the day her girl was grown
G              D                   C      D
Giving all her love to her was her life's ambition
G                  D                     C       D       C
But now her baby's movin' on, and she'll soon be missin' her
But not today, those are tears of joy runnin' down her face

G     D          C
She's somebody's hero
  D           G               D
A hero to her daughter in her wedding dress
    C                 D
She gave her wings to leave the nest
   G     D          C       D                  G
It hurts to let her baby go down the aisle she walks right by
      D             C
Looks back into her mother's eyes
         D              G D C
And that smile lets her know
                 D G
She's somebody's hero

Thirty years have flown right past
Her daughters' starin' at all the photographs
Of her mother, and she wishes she could be like that
Oh, but she already is

G     D          C
She's somebody's hero
  D           G           D
A hero to her mother in a rockin' chair
    C                        D
She runs a brush through her silver hair
    G D         C
The envy of the nursing home
D                  G
She drops by every afternoon
D              C
Feeds her mama with a spoon
         D              G D C
And that smile lets her know
             D              G D C
Her mother's smile lets her know
                 D G
She's somebody's hero

Im not an expert but its sounds pretty dang good when you play it. Good job in my book
-rebelheart1440 | 8/1/2005
thanks :D
-speed2345 | 8/1/2005
i too think it sounds great but its a little low for me what do i play it to get it a little higher like in 2nd or 3 fret or maybe 4th?

-Loristarra | 8/5/2005
I'm really not good at this stuff lol...I haven't been playing too long..umm...maybe try a capo or let someone like axehappy tab the real key...sorry I know thats prolly not much help
-speed2345 | 8/7/2005
this is a great song and you did a great job on it. i just have one comment...i think it is closer to the recorded version if you play it with a capo on the 6th fret. it makes the guitar pretty high but it matches the vocals nicely.
-rdejlover | 8/11/2005
thanks, I was wondering how high up it needed to be, but i didnt try past the 4th fret cause that was gettin up there
