rearranged the chords, so that the strumming is (in my opinion) much easier to understand

Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
C 		        F
 Stare at the beautiful women

"She's looking at you.  Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."

C 	       F             G                  G
Smiling in the bright lights, coming through in stereo
     C 	         F       G                 G
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely


Am 		F 	Dm 		  G
I will paint my picture.  Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
Am 		       F 	             G          G
  All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
           Am 		           F  Dm 	  G 		
(you know) Gray is my favorite color I felt so symbolic yesterday
Am            F      G                   G
  If I knew Picasso I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Mr. Jones and me look into the future
C 		        F
 Stare at the beautiful women

"She's looking at you.  Uh, I don't think so.  She's looking at me."
C 		F 	  G                 G
Standing in the spotlight I bought myself a gray guitar
     C 	         F      G 		 G	   Am
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely


     Am         F
I will never be lonely
  Dm            G
I will never be lonely


Am 		        F
  I want to be a lion.  Everybody wants to pass as cats
Am 					G
  We All want to be big, big stars, but we got different reasons for that.
Am 			  F
  Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
    A                       G
And I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe.

Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
        C 		       F

"She's perfect for you, man, there's got to be somebody for me."
C 		  F
 I want to be Bob Dylan
   G                           G
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
     C 	            F 	      G                     G
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be.


C    F 	          G               G
 Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
 C 		       F 		 G
When I look at the television, I want to see me staring right back at me.
C 			F 	    G               G
We all want to be big stars, but we don't know why, and we don't know how.
   C 		    F 	    	 G                         G
But when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just about as happy as I can be.

Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars.....
