The Pretender chords
Jackson Browne

G C 2x

G CI'm gonna rent myself a house in the shade of the freeway
G D CGonna pack my lunch in the morning, and go to work each day
G CAnd when the evening rolls around,
G CI'll go on home and lay my body down
G DAnd when the morning light comes streaming in
C G Am GI'll get up and do it again Amen
C G Am GSay it again Amen
GI want to know what became of the changes,
CWe waited for love to bring
GWere they only the fitful dreams
D COf some greater awakening
G CI've been aware of the time going by
G CThey say in the end it's the wink of an eye
G DAnd when the morning light comes streaming in
C G Am GI'll get up and do it again Amen
C G Am GSay it again Amen
G DCaught between the longing for love
C Em B7And the struggle for the legal tender
CWhere the sirens sing and the church bells ring
Em CAnd the junkman pounds his fender
G CWhere the veterans dream of the fight,
B7 EmFast asleep at the traffic light
A7 G DAnd the children solemnly wait for the ice cream vendor
Em D C Em D Out into the cool of the evening, strolls the pretender
C DHe knows that all his hopes an dreams
GBegin and end there
G C G C
C GAh the lovers as they run through the night
C EmLeaving nothing but to choose off and fight
D G CAnd tear at the world with all their might
G EmWhile the ships bearing their dreams
G DSail out of sight
D GI'm gonna find myself a girl,
CWho can show me what laughter means
G Then we'll fill in the missing colors in each others
D CPaint by number dreams
G CAnd then we'll put our dark glasses on
G CAnd we'll make love until our strength is gone
G DAnd when the morning light comes streaming in
C G Am Gwe'll get up and do it again Amen
C G Am Gget it up again Amen
G D C Em B7I'm gonna be a happy idiot, and struggle for the legal tender
CWhere the ads take aim, and lay their claim
Em GTo the heart and the soul of the spender
C GAnd believe in whatever may lie
B7 EmIn those things that money can buy
A7 DThough true love could have been a contender
Em D C D EmAre you there, say a prayer for the pretender
C D GWho started out so young and strong only to surrender
G C Csus4Say a prayer for the pretender
G C Csus4Are you there for the pretender
G C Csus4Are you prepared for the pretender
G C Csus4Are you there for the pretender
