       A
I was driving through my hometown
          D                 A
I was just kinda killin' time

When I seen a face staring out of black velvet painting
         E                     D    A
From the window of the five and dime

I couldn't quite recall the name
 D                         A
But the pose looked familiar to me

So I asked  the salesgirl, "Who was that man
             E                A
Between the doberman and Bruce Lee?"
                 D          A
She said, "Just a local hero"
 D                             A
"Local hero," she said with a smile
      D          A         D                A    | A | D | A | D
"Yeah a local hero he used to live here for a while."

        A
I met a stranger dressed in black

At the train station
   D                       A
He said, "Son your soul can be saved"

There's beautiful women nights of low livin'
          E                  D    A
And some dangerous money to be made

There's a big  town 'cross the whiskey line
         D                    A
And if we turn the right cards up

They make us boss the devil pays off
         E                    A
And them folks that are real hard up
              D         A
They get their local hero
      D                       A
Yeah, somebody with  the right style
               D        A
They get their local hero
  D                           A | A | D | A | D
Somebody with just the right smile

                        A
Well I learned my job I learned it well
     D                          A
Fit myself with religion and a story to tell
        D                        A
First they made me the king then they made me pope
D                              A | D | A | D | A | D
Well, then they brought the rope

          A
I woke to a gypsy girl sayin', "Drink this"
         D                   A
Well my hands had lost all sensation

These days I'm feeling all right 
         E                      D             A
'Cept I can't tell my courge from my desperation

From the tainted chalice
     D                   A
Wel I drunk some heady wine

Tonight I'm layin' here

But there's something in my ear
       E                           A
Sayin' there's a little town just beneath the floodline
       D        A
Needs a local hero
       D                      A
Yeah, somebody with the right style
              D        A
Lookin' for a local hero
       D                      A
Yeah, someone with the right smile
               D       A       D                     A
Lookin'  for a local hero, yeah somebody woth the right smile

(fade out)
