Tony Lucca - True Story chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This can be played strummed but sounds nice with just about any finger-picking pattern. 
These are the chords in standard tuning, I believe he plays with a capo on the second 
fret. After each verse he stops his finger-picking and plays a tiny pattern (I'll call it "riff")-

G                B      C         G
Rolled on out of Motown back in '91

G                Em              D7             D
Left them bitter winters for the Florida summer sun

G                  G7
Breakin' hearts in theme parks

C          Cm                G            D7         
        G (riff)
Smiled for anyone who held a camera to my face and said "Say cheese!"


G               B            C             G
Wound up on the telly With a twinkle in my eye

G           Em                   D7             D
Twinkle disappeared the night I started gettin' high

G                     G7
And everything seemed so absurd

C                  Cm               G
Until the night I finally heard the sound of Coltrane

D7                  G (riff)
It brought me to my knees



CHORUS
          D                               C
There's a long drive straight through the night

                G                      D7
Starin' out the window Lookin' for the first signs of daylight

    G                   C
Just hold on tight With all of your might

       G                 D7              G (riff)
See it takes the time it takes to get it right



     G                  B                C            G
So I peddled across the country Wound up here in Hollywood

G                   Em                D7         D
Left my high school sweetheart when I realized I could

G            G7
She became a movie star

     C                Cm              G             
D7               G (riff)
I've took to sleepin' in my car Still singin' songs about her to this day


G               B             C            G
Drove myself to New York City Chasin' love again

G               Em               D7              D
She moved me to tears and then I wound up movin' in

G                  G7
That Apple got the best of me

   C               Cm               G                   
D7           G (riff)
So I packed up the rest of me And I grabbed a cab, said "Straight to JFK!"



CHORUS
          D                               C
There's a long drive straight through the night

                G                      D7
Starin' out the window Lookin' for the first signs of daylight

     G                  C
Just hold on tight With all of your might

       G                 D7              G (riff)
See it takes the time it takes to get it right



G               B              C            G
Now I'm back in Hollywood This guitar in my hand

      G             Em               D7         D
These days I'm only using words that I can understand

G                   G7
Singin' songs, I'll carry on

     C               Cm                 G        D7  
            G (riff)
Keep at it until I'm dead and gone Then maybe my gravestone will say



CHORUS
          D                               C
There's a long drive straight through the night

                G                      D7
Starin' out the window Lookin' for the first signs of daylight

     G                  C
Just hold on tight With all of your might

       G                 D7              G (riff)
See it takes the time it takes to get it right

       G                 D7              G
See it takes the time it takes to get it right (Third time's the charm)

            G                 D7              G (riff)
They say it takes the time it takes to get it right
