This is the original key (F)
 
I posted it a few months ago, but only a draft version,
Klaus Tauber put it together with the complete lyric, 
thanks Klaus.
But Klaus missed some chords in the ending.

OVER MY SHOULDER
================
by Mike & The Mechanics
Intro:Fm7 - Bb - D#

           Fm7  Bb      D#
1. Looking back over my shoulder
   Fm7            Bb           D#
   I can see that look in your eyes
   Fm7             Bb          D#
   I never dreamed it could be over
   Fm7           Bb           D#
  I never wanted to say good bye
           Fm7  Bb      D#
2. Looking back over my shoulder
   Fm7            Bb         D#
   With an aching deep in my heart
   Fm7       Bb            D#
 I wish we were starting over
   Fm7                       Bb     D# 
 Oh instead we're drifting so far apart

   C#   G#   F#               G#
B: Everybody told me you were leaving
   C#    G#       F#            G#
   Funny I should be the last to know
   C#   G#      F#               G#
  Baby, please, tell me that I'm dreaming
   F#                           H
  I just never want to let you go

           Fm7  Bb      D#
3. Looking back over my shoulder
   Fm7            Bb           D#
   I can see that look in your eyes
  Fm7              Bb       D#
 Turning my heart over and over
  Fm7            Bb          D# 
 I never wanted to say good bye

   C#     G#   F#         G#
B: I don't mind everybody laughing
   C#      G#        F#              G#
  But it's enough to make an old man cry
    C#         G#          F#                  G#
   'cause I can feel you're slipping through my fingers
  F#                           H 
 I don't even know the reason why

4. Whistle the melody

   C#   G#  F#            G#
B. Everyday it's a losing battle
   C#     G#        G#               G#
   Just to smile and hold my head up high
   C#       G# F#          G#
   Could it be we belong together
   F#                               H
   Baby, won't you give me one more try?
   (tricky part) ->  C# D# F F# G# (listen to the record to get it right)
                            One more try
           Fm7  Bb      D#
5. Looking back over my shoulder
         Fm7      Bb           D#
   I can see that look in your eyes
           Fm7     Bb          D# 
  I never dreamed it could be over
  Fm7            Bb          D# 
 I never wanted to say good bye

    With an aching deep in my heart
                   A             D        Em7
    I wish that we were starting over
                           A      D       C
    Oh instead of drifting so far apart

         G    F                G          C

    I never wanted to say goodbye

    I don't mind everybody laughing
             G         F                G           C
    But it's enough to make a grown man cry
              G        F                   G
    Cos I can feel you slipping through my fingers
    Am                           Bb
    I don't even know the reason why


  Whistle:

    Just to smile and hold my head up high
             G       F         G
    Could it be that we belong together
    Am                              Bb       C    G    Am   F
    Baby won't you give me one more try

    Looking back over my shoulder
                   A            D         Em7
    I can see that look in your eye
                    A           D         Em7
    I never dreamed it could be over
                   A          D 
    I never wanted to say goodbye

            Em7  A       D                Em7
    Looking back over my shoulder
                      A       D           Em7
    Oh with an aching feeling inside
                   A         D
    Cutting me up, deeper an deeper
    Em7                     A            D
    Fills me with a sadness that I can't hide
