The Great Pretender chords
The Platters 1956  (Buck Ram) *

Capo I

E A B7
       
       E           A        E     E7
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
   A            B7        E   E7
Pretending that I'm doing well
   A       B7        E        A
My need is such I pretend too much
    E          B7         E
I'm lonely but no one can tell

       E           A        E     E7
Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender
 A          B7          E  E7
Adrift in a world of my own
     A          B7             E     A
I've played the game but to my real shame
       E          B7          E   E7
You've left me to grieve all alone

    A            B7         E           E7
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    A           B7           E              B7
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

E            A        E     E7
Yes, I'm the great pretender
     A            B7         E    E7
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
  A       B7          E        A
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
    E          B7           E7
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
   E            B7            E    E7
Pretending that you're still around

    A            B7         E           E7
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    A           B7           E              B7
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

E            A        E     E7
Yes, I'm the great pretender
     A            B7         E    E7
Just laughin' and gay like a clown
  A       B7          E        A
I seem to be what I'm not, you see
    E          B7           E7
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
   E            B7            E        A      E
Pretending that you're still around,   still around
