Count on Me Singapore Chords

This year is my nation’s 50th year of independence. So in light of it, I was thinking of chording up some of our national day songs I used to sing when I was a kid. I really don’t like the new songs. They seriously sound like shit. Anyways, one of my favourite songs was “Count on Me Singapore”. The original sounds a lot better than the Dick Lee version. Originally written and sung by Clement Chow. It is a timeless classic. And sometimes, some things should remain the way they are because they are already perfect. 

Here are the chords I’ve done up. I did some edits to the key and flow. It ends low rather than the usual high key because, well, I personally find it too straining.

Verse 1 intro:

. D

We have a vision for tomorrow, just believe, just believe

We have a goal for Singapore, we can achieve, we can achieve

Verse 1:

.              D                       A                  G                    D D7

You and me, we’ll do our part, stand together, heart to heart

.            G                                               A4              D

We’re going to show the world what Singapore can be

.           Em                A         D

We can achieve, we can achieve

Verse 2:

. D

There is something down the road that we can strive for

We are told no dream’s too bold that we can’t try for

.               D                   A              G             D D7

There’s a spirit in the air, it’s a feeling we all share

.         G                          A4                        D

We’re going to build a better life, for you and me

.              Em             A        D

We can achieve, we can achieve

Coda:

.         G    A         D              Em        A                    D             G

Count on me Singapore, count on me to give my best and more (back to verse 1)

Chorus:

. G            A      D              Em           A      D D7

Count on me Singapore, Count on me Singapore

.   G          A              D/F#            Bm         Em            A              D

Count on me to give my best and more, together Singapore, Singapore

Chorus 2:

. G                       A               D

We can achieve together Singapore

. Em                       A             D

We can achieve together Singapore

. G                    A4           D                   G

We can achieve Singapore, my best and more

. Em         A                 D          Bm7

Together Singapore, Singapore

. Em          A                 D          Bm7

Together Singapore, Singapore

. Em           A                   G2      D2 D

Together Singapore, Singapore
