(Verse 1)

C
Welcome to the big time, you're bound to be a star

Bb                                    F
And even if you don't go all the way, you know that you'll go far

C
This place is for rats, it can turn you upside down

Bb                                      F
There's no one you can count on in this sleazy little town, oh no



(Pre-Chorus)

G       A        F
Lots of promises in the dark

G         A         Bb
Don't you open your heart



CHORUS
(repeat opening riff -- x2)

'Cuz it don't mean nothing, those words that they say
No it don't mean nothing, those games that people play
It don't mean nothing, no victim, no crime
No it don't mean nothing 'til you sign it on the dotted line


(Pre-Verse)
Same as verse, then fill -- F G G#


(Verse 2)

C
The director smiles as you walk in the door

Bb                              F
He says "I love your work, babe, but you're just not what we're looking for"

C
And it's never what but who it is you know

Bb                            F
So easy to get stuck in all that California snow, oh no



(Pre-Chorus)

G       A         F
Take a good look around and you'll find

G                A              Bb
People tryin' to mess with your mind


2nd Chorus  -- repeat first chorus, then  F  G  A


(Refrain)

A
Hollywood can be so lonely

               F                       F G A
make you the winner of a losing fight

A
The party is never over

F
The stars are always shinin'

        G         A
Doesn't matter if it's day or night


Guitar solo -- rhythm plays opening/chorus riff x 2


(Verse 3)

C
The producer says "let me change a line or two"

Bb                                     F
And a little bit of something can look awfully good to you

C
And you want to scream, but you gotta keep it all inside

F                                                F
When you're trying to make a living, there ain't no such thing as pride, oh no



(Pre-Chorus)

G       A        F
Lots of promises in the dark

G             A         Bb
But don't you open your heart


(Repeat Chorus)


Outro -- opening/chorus riff


And done!
