The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
“Contender”

One line of the lyrics in the first verse wasn’t included in their lyric press release 
I had to do my best to guess at it. As for the chords they should be pretty accurate for 
solo instrumentalist.

Capo 2

Intro:
C  Fmaj7 C Fmaj7

C
Look what you’ve done, look what you’ve done,
            Fmaj7
what do you have now?
C
Things that never come, I’m laying here in a dead-end room (best lyric guess)
              Fmaj7
Is it time to come down?

Chorus:
       G
At the back of a crowded scene

You saw the boys in white sing
       Fmaj7
“I’m a pretender”
                                     C
But you never were, you never were a contender
  Fmaj7
A contender


Verse 2:
C
I heard your same old tune, singing city sins
                  Fmaj7
Like you were the first one.
C
Gave up books for film, gave up film for time
                Fmaj7
Now that you’ve got none.


Chorus:
       G
At the back of a crowded scene

You saw the boys in white sing
       Fmaj7
“I’m a pretender”
                                     C
But you never were, you never were a contender
  Fmaj7
A contender
