                    G                                                 C/G
I'm gonna rent myself a house in the shade of the freeway,
              G                                                     D
         C
Gonna pack my lunch in the morning, and go to work each day
                     G                       C
And when the evening rolls around,
             G                               C
I'll go on home and lay my body down
                    G                                           D
And when the morning light comes streaming in
                               C  G/B    Am7  G
I'll get up and do it again          Amen
               C  G/B       Am7  G
Say it again                 Amen

Verse 2

                  G
I want to know what became of the changes,
                     C/G
We waited for love to bring
                G
Were they only the fitful dreams
                            D       C
Of some greater  awakening
              G                              C
I've been aware of the time going by
                       G                              C
They say in the end it's the blink of an eye
                    G                                            D
And when the morning light comes streaming in
                                    C  G/B  Am7  G
You'll get up and do it again         Amen
                             D
Caught between the longing for love
             C                                Em    B7

And the struggle for the legal tender
                C/G
Where the sirens sing and the churchbells ring
            Em
And the junkman pounds his fender
               C                              G
Where the veterans dream of the fight,
         B7                       Em
Fast asleep at the traffic light
             A9                      A9/G                       D/F#
And the children solemnly wait for the ice cream vendor
Em   D                   C                          D
Em
           Out into the cool of the evening, strolls the pretender
                     C                            D
He knows that all his hopes an dreams
                G
Begin and end there

C                                                    G
Ah the lovers as they run through the night
C                                                    Em
Leaving nothing but to choose off and fight
D#O7              G/D                     C
And tear at the world with all their might
               G/D                      Em
While the ships bearing their dreams
              G/D     D
Sail out of sight

Verse 3
              G
I'm gonna find myself a girl,
                                    C/G
Who can show me what laughter means
               G                                                 D
Then we'll fill in the missing colors in each others
                         C
Paint by number dreams
                     G                            C
And then we'll put our dark glasses on
                      G                                 C
And we'll make love until our strength is gone
                    G                                           D
And when the morning light comes streaming in
                                    C  G/B  Am7  G
We'll get up and do it again
                 C  G/B  Am7  G
Get it up again
     G              D                      D/C
Em
I'm gonna be a happy idiot, and struggle for the legal tender
B7                    C/G
        Where the ads take aim, and lay their claim
          Em
To the heart and the soul of the spender
          C                             G
And believe in whatever may lie
              B7                            Em
In those things that money can buy
               A9     A9/G                          D/F#
Though true love could have been a contender
Em  D              C               D                           Em
           Are you there, say a prayer for the pretender
                   C                        D                            G

Who started out so young and strong only to surrender

Over Intro Part 2:

G                                      C
Say a prayer for the pretender
G                                      C
Are you there for the pretender
G                                           C
Are you prepared for the pretender etc.
